ShowMax launched in Johannesburg in August 2015, as South Africa's answer to Netflix. You can watch whatever you want, whenever you want, online – there's loads of local content available, plus all the biggest and best from Hollywood. With over 20 000 series and movies to binge watch, ShowMax will keep you and your family entertained over the festive season and beyond.
The cost for subscription is R99 per month, plus whatever you spend on data while streaming. (Two hours of streaming uses up about 1GB of data, and you'll need at least a 4Mbps connection for the best results.) A major plus of Showmax is that you can download movies and series to watch offline, which you can't do with Netflix. And you don't even need a credit card to subscribe - you can pay via your Vodacom account!
