In this guide, we will show you how to pay for your GOtv subscription via Mpesa in Kenya as of 2023.

To access GOtv services, you need a GOtv decoder and a GOtenna. As of 2023, the cost of a GOtv decoder is Ksh 1,299 while a GOtenna retails at Ksh 849. There are five main packages that GOtv offers:

Now, let’s get into the steps on how to pay for your GOtv subscription via Mpesa in Kenya:

  1. Go to your Mpesa menu
  2. Select “Lipa na Mpesa”
  3. Select “PayBill”
  4. Enter 423655 as the business number
  5. Enter your GOtv IUC number (located at the bottom of your decoder with a red sticker)
  6. Enter the amount you want to pay
  7. Enter your Mpesa pin and press “OK”
  8. You will receive a transaction confirmation message from Mpesa

Once you have completed these steps, Multichoice Kenya will update the payment, and your viewing will be back to normal after a few minutes.

However, after making your payment, your screen might show an E16 error message. This happens when your decoder is turned off during payment. To clear this error, you can send a text message with the word RESET followed by your IUC number to 22688 or dial *423# on your phone. Alternatively, you can go to and clear the error online.
