GOtv Jinja channels

GOtv Smallie channels

Apparently, the Smallie bouquet does not offer the kind of excitement that the other bouquets offer. However, you can save money with the bouquet. GOtv Smallie is the perfect fit for you if you’re saving for a long-term project. This is because this bouquet offers monthly, quarterly, and annual payment options.

For one month you can NGN 800 to enjoy the service and you can pay NGN 2100 to enjoy the service quarterly. For one year, you can enjoy the service for just NGN 6200. So, for instance, instead of paying N3,600 every month for the Max bouquet, you can just pay N6,200 for an entire year for GOtv Smallie, That will save you a lot of money for what you have to do. 

Before GOtv Jinja and Jolli, There Was GOtv Value And GOtv Plus

It is noteworthy that GOtv Jinja and GOtv Jolli are actually new bouquets that were introduced in mid-2020. Before their arrival, GOtv Nigeria had other bouquets called GOtv Value and GOtv Plus.

However, in June 2020, the media company released a statement explaining that GOtv Plus and GOtv Value was going to be phased out and be replaced with GOtv Jolli and GOtv Jinja which will have more entertainment as more channel would come with them.

This announcement was met with displeasure among many subscribers and got mixed reactions on social media. Some people complained that new plans were not as favorable to them as the previous ones especially in the area of pricing.
