Showmax is not a TV channel.

Showmax is a new way to watch TV.

Showmax is an internet TV service that gives you instant access to the world’s best series, movies, kids shows and documentaries on your phone, tablet, laptop, gaming console, media player, connected DStv Explora or smart TV. Go to www.showmax.com or download the Showmax app to find out more.

All you need to use Showmax is access to the internet and a device to watch on. Download your favourite shows to watch offline with the Showmax app on phones and tablets. Watch on two screens at the same time – so you can watch HBO’s Succession while your kids watch Despicable Me.

Get 35 000+ series episodes, movies, kids’ shows and documentaries

Every week Showmax adds more series, movies, kids’ shows and documentaries so there is something for everyone! From Game of Thrones and The Handmaid’s Tale S1 to Grey’s Anatomy, Suits, The Big Bang Theory, Big Little Lies and Westworld. Watch now »

Showmax is home to hot new shows that you won’t find anywhere else, like Succession, the HBO family drama everyone’s talking about; Younger, Seasons 1 to 5, from the creator of Sex and the City; sci fi action series Reverie; Marvel’s brand-new superhero series Cloak & Dagger; Siren, a fantasy thriller about a myth brought to life; Taboo, starring Tom Hardy; and Harlots, described by Variety as “Think Downton Abbey meets Game of Thrones”. Documentaries that are only on Showmax include Birth Right: A War Story, about the lack of women’s reproductive rights in the US, and if you’re looking for a unique indie movie fix, check out critically acclaimed Bomb City and SA erotic thriller The Girl from Nowhere, which you won’t be able to stream anywhere else in the country. Watch now »
