Technology is really the way of the future. It is here, it is there. You turn, you find a piece that has its design based on technology and when you turn again, you find another. This world of tech that is constantly spinning is also looking to make sure that we just don’t have pieces of technological hardware that would be nothing but a liability to us, rather an asset.
FNB (First National Bank of South Africa) has recently made an upgrade to its servers which would allow you perform basic operations on your DSTv subscription from your mobile phone. FNB has done this by enhancing the functionality of Cell phone banking with the payment for satellite TV too, offering top-up and advance payment activities.
Now, FNB users are capable of, all from their mobile phones, viewing their Multichoice Account statement, checking for outstanding amount and paying either in full or partially for their satellite TV subscriptions. What’s more? It also allows you top up your Box Office Account, all from the convenience of your home and / or offices, armed with a mobile phone.
“FNB is on a journey to simplify customers’ lives. Enabling them with mobile and digital payments is part of that trajectory. This is another first from FNB; the service was first introduced in November 2014 for Zambia, Swaziland and Tanzania. To access your DStv or Box Office account, customers can log into their FNB Cell phone Banking profile via the dial string (*120*321#) to view and pay outstanding amounts due on their account,” FNB has said.
“Customers can make partial or full payments towards their DStv or Box Office accounts; which will update the customer’s account or trigger a re-connection of service immediately in the event where the service was disconnected.”
