Recharging StarTimes account – Here are the platforms to use for payment   




We are in the middle of the first week of the first month of 2018. Yes, just in case you’re still celebrating your holiday and stuck in 2017, people moved on, to a new month – and New Year – on Monday morning.

With the looong January now with us, people are now waking up – from their holiday mood – to pending bills – electricity, rent, water, school fees, and of course, StarTimes payTV subscription renewal – waiting to be settled.

As we noted in an earlier post, January calls for very careful budgeting if families – and households – have to survive it successfully without getting into financial challenges.

For StarTimes however, all is not gloomy as subscribers who pay – or renew – their accounts (or subscriptions) before the one-month deadline get to earn 3 more extra days of viewing.

This means that if you example top up your account maybe a day before the deadline (before your channels are disconnected), you will then access your channels for a month plus the remaining one day and then be added an extra 3 days on top of that to access content for free. During the extra 3 added days, one can even be at liberty to then flexibly make arrangements to pay next month’s subscription, thereby giving them time more time. In January, remember that being accorded even a single extra day to make arrangements to pay is more than welcome.

Now, apart from paying from any of the available outlets, below are the additional payment options available for StarTimes subscribers and the payment process:
