What is StarTimes Bouquet Subscription?
StarTimes bouquet subscription is one time pass payment access to StarTimes pay TV Network for a particular period of time based on the bouquet paid for.
StarTimes offer daily bouquet subscription, weekly bouquet susbcription, monthly, quarterly, and yearly bouquet subscription.
Reason Why StarTimes 1 month Bouquet Subscription Last for 2 Weeks
The main reason why StarTimes 1 month bouquet subscription only last for just 2 weeks is a bouquet payment related issues.
This bouquet issues happens, when a StarTimes subscribers pay for a StarTimes bouquet diffrent from his current StarTimes bouquet and expect it to just work. No, no, no.
It doesn’t work that way. For example, you are on StarTimes Basic Boquet which cost around N1700 per month. Then you desire to upgrade to Classic Bouquet which cost around N2500 per month.
Then you decided to use one of the StarTimes alternative subscription payment partner, in which you select Classic Bouquet and make payment for Classic Bouquet which cost N2500 per month.
When you do this, your subscription will still remain on StarTimes Basic Bouquet and the TV channels will also be on Basic Bouquet, no changes will occur.
Then StarTimes payment Algorithm, will now start to calculate and deduct your payment as StarTimes daily Basic Bouquet subscription.
How your StarTimes 1 Month Subscription is Exhausted
Let’s do the maths, StarTimes Basic Bouquet for 1 month is N1700. StarTimes Classic Bouquet for 1 month is N2500.
StarTimes Daily Basic Bouquet is N160 and StarTimes Classic Daily Bouquet is N320.
Now you paid N2500 for Classic Bouquet for 1 month, Basic Daily Bouquet is N160, then for 1 week is 160*7= N1120. For another 1 week or seven days is, 160*7= N1120.
Now for 2 weeks, it is= N1120+N1120= N2240. So based on my calculation, after just 2 weeks, you will discover that non of your paid subscription TV channels are working.
Your Bouquet still remain unchanged and your TV is displaying that your subscription have expired.
When this happens to StarTimes subscribers they are always very annoyed.
This is normal. Some people whatsApp me, saying they will just go and dump their StarTimes decoder and use GOtv or DSTV.
I usually laugh at this stage. One thing I have discovered, is that every pay TV have their own challenges. Whether StarTimes, GOtv, Free TV, MyTV or DSTV.
Let me be specific on StarTimes. When you experience this issues, and is not more than 24 hours that you make your subscription payment.
Then I will say there is big hope for the StarTimes Bouquet your paid for to work including all the TV channels for that Boauguet.
But if it is more than 24 hours you paid for the Bouquet subscription, your payment will be calculated based on a Daily Bouquet subscription.
To resolve this issues, all you need to do is to quickly change your Bouquet to the mewly upgraded or downgraded Bouquet, provided the time you pay your subscription is not more than 24 hours.
Using StarTimes generally, when you desire to upgrade or downgrade your Bouquet subscription.
The first thing you need to do is to change from your current Bouquet to the Bouquet you desire to upgrade to or downgrade to.
After doing this, before you will pay for the current Bouquet you upgraded or downgraded to.
When you do things, everything will go on smoothly failure to do this will result to all the issues I have been discussing on this blog post.
On StarTimes, you as a user or subscribers can not change your Bouquet, either upgrade or downgrade, note this.
To change your Bouquet, you will have to locate StarTimes Merchant shop closer to you or StarTimes office closer to you or call StarTimes customer care number, to change your Bouquet for you.
After doing this for you, then you can pay for the Bouquet you were changed to, on your own by using any StarTimes subscription payment partner at there, like Quickteller, Opay, your Bank USSD, just to mention a few.
So in general, always ensure before you decided to upgrade or downgrade your Bouquet, you must first change your Bouquet, before payment to the Bouquet you changed to.
