Big Brother Naija not showing on your GOTV? Here's what to Do

If your GOTV subscription has expired, you may be able to watch the BBNaija channel for just a few minutes before the system will slam the E-16 error on your screen. In this case, you need to quickly renew your subscription by using your preferred payment method.

If you are in this category, don’t disturb yourself – renew your subscription to restore viewing as the Big Brother Naija channel 29 is not for Free on GOTV.

2. Active Parental control settings

Sometimes, a member of the family or a friend may just decide to put a STOP on the BBNaija channel by simply Activating the Parental controls which will definitely affect the Channel 29 on your GOTV.

In order to be sure that Parental Controlshas not been activated on your GOTV decoder, you may want to press the White MENU button on your remote control then scroll to select “Parental Controls” and check if it is disabled or not.

3. The BBNaija channel may not be in your current Package

The last reason why the BBNaija may fail to show on your decoder is when you subscribe to a GOTV package below GOTV Plus. By default, GOTV MAX and Plus are the two packages that allow for the viewing of Big Brother Naija.

If you have subscribed to other packages except the ones listed above, you may need to upgrade your Gotv subscription which I think is only possible after the expiration of the current subscription.
