startimes payments tIt’s been a while since I listed StarTimes bouquets and their respective channels on this site which attracted both positive and negative sentiments from our readers, you can have a look at the post and comments here in case you haven’t seen or looking forward to get their decoder – and now, it’s about that time I included various methods that subscribers can choose to pay for their bouquets plus their respective procedure. ‘StarTimes’ should have graduated to a household name by now for at least those TV diehards, but for clueless ‘mwananchi’, it’s a Chinese pay TV service provider that’s been in operation in countries like Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Nigeria for a while offering services on a digital terrestrial transmission platform. It’s no news that Kenyans are now very curious to know the flexibility and accessibility of payment services offered by local service providers including pay TV and I am happy to list those of StarTimes.

You may choose to pay at StarTimes Official Offices located in upperhill Victoria Towers ground floor or their care centers/outlets.

  7. Hi, do something on the activation of décoder when one has paid and sending messages to alert customers à day before you unsubscribe….just a request

  8. I bought the decorder which lasted for only 1 month and it’s LNB got burnt. Your appointed technician repaired it two months later denying me the 3-month free period before initial payment. Can i therefore be accorded/allowed 1 month free period before payment because it wasn’t my fault but a defective machine? Phone:0736-136694
