How to subscribe to ShowMax with Vodacom

This holiday, subscribe to internet TV service ShowMax to enjoy access to over 25 000 movies, series and kids’ shows on multiple devices, and add it to your Vodacom bill for maximum convenience.

Do you want to watch series, movies, documentaries and kids’ shows back-to-back, with no ads and no waiting between episodes – all completely legally? Well, now, with ShowMax, Africa’s own internet TV service, you can. And thanks to Vodacom’s partnership with ShowMax, you can even avoid having to make separate payments by adding your ShowMax subscription to your Vodacom bill!

Here are some excellent reasons to sign up for ShowMax.

Why should I subscribe to ShowMax?

  1. You can binge on over 25 000 local and international series, movies and kids’ shows. The series line-up includes brand-new comedy Younger, new seasons of Vampire Diaries, Game of Thrones, House and Bosch, plus local favourites like Dineo’s Diary and Isibaya. In the mood for a movie? Pick from the massive selection that includes classics like Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Ace Ventura, latest releases, such as the groundbreaking documentary The Out List, and South African hits including Soweto Green and Homecoming. And the kids will love being able to watch back-to-back episodes of The Littlest Pet Shop, Bubble Guppies and Power Rangers.
  2. It’s affordable: for only R99 per month, you get full access to ShowMax. That’s less than the cost of two movie tickets!
  3. You can watch on multiple devices, including your smart TV, tablet, laptop and smartphone.
  4. You can control the amount of data you use, thanks to ShowMax’s options of streaming at three different quality settings and their handy data calculator for you to estimate how much data you’ll need per week.
  5. You can download to watch offline with the ShowMax app – download up to 25 shows when you’re in a free Wi-FI zone, and then watch them offline for free to keep your costs super-low.
  6. You can add your ShowMax subscription to your Vodacom bill. This means you don’t have to use a credit card to sign up, and you can pay for everything at once. It’s so easy to activate ShowMax on your Vodacom account: go to Vodacom Online to find out how.
