Life is hard as it is, and trying to navigate brilliant entertainment options should definitely not be! With Showmax, it’s easy.

Afropolitans, here’s how simple it really is to get the latest HBO shows, exclusive series, boxsets of familiar favourites, local gems, sport and a huge range of kids' shows on multiple devices at home or on the go. And at only R99 per month, what a steal.

What can I watch?

Signing up to Showmax is so easy and you’ll get unlimited access to the best series, movies, documentaries, local content and kids' shows, such as brilliant HBO titles like InsecureBallers and Euphoria and exclusive series you won't find anywhere else, including Succession, all seasons of Younger, and Marvel's Cloak & Dagger.

There are also express episodes of local fan favourites like The River, straight from their DStv broadcast, and boxsets of your favourite shows from Friends to Sex and the City.

And, as of 14 June 2019, sport is officially up and running on Showmax in South Africa too. This offering not only features sport magazine shows and highlight clips, but a whole new capability to live-stream games. Great news for the upcoming Rugby World Cup!

 Where Can I watch?

Watch Showmax on up to five different devices, from your Xbox or PS4 to your laptop, tablet, smart TV or smartphone. Watch on one device while your kids or spouse watches something else on a different device at the same time. No more fighting over the remote control!

How Much?

For only R99 per month you can get it all, and if you're a DStv subscriber, you'll pay even less.


DStv Premium customers get Showmax for zero extra cost, and DStv Compact and Compact Plus subscribers pay only R49 per month. All you have to do is sign up to Showmax and add it to your DStv bill.
