To really know whether your Free TV subscription have expired or not, please just read this two headings below.

1. Expiring Subscription Days Count Down

This is the normal sign of Free TV subscription expiring notice. This usually happens when your Free TV subscription is remaining about a month to expire.

Your subscription will automatically begin to count down the remaining days. When you see this particular sign on your TV screen you can go for recharging.

Let me point this out, there is an assumption that you can not recharge your digital box with existing subscription until the subscription finally expire.

That is not true. You can recharge your Free TV subscription anytime and your subscription will be updated automatically.

Is to, press MENU on your Free TV remote, then SETTINGS and locate DIGITAL TV PASS check the Date, Month and Year that your box will expire.

If your Free TV decode box subscription expiring date is less than or equal to three months, it means your box subscription have expired.

If that is your case, go for recharging. But if your DIGITAL TV PASS subscription expiring date is greater than three month, I mean four month above, then you can Restore Access to Lost TV Channels.

I have seen a lot of people contacting me on Error code Your Service is Suspended issues almost on a daily basis.

Most of them thought is the normal Error code 200, 20, Insert Sc Card and NULL SERVICE issues. This is different.

It is another way to tell you that box subscription have expired. It is Error Code Service Suspended or Device Suspended.

It means your service is suspended so you will need to recharge or pay your 1 Year DIGITAL TV PASS subscription to unlock your device or service as the case may be.
