Yes. Showmax does have subtitles for the biggest shows like Game of Thrones, The Big Bang Theory, The Fosters and many, many more.

The subtitles are currently in English in South Africa. Please let us know if you want more languages to be added.

Unfortunately, not every single series, movie, kids’ show and documentary on Showmax has subtitles, which is something we’re looking to improve.

If you’d like to take a look at what Showmax has and check if it has subtitles, you can browse all the Showmax content here.

If your favorite show is missing subtitles, please get in touch with our support team. You can live chat with them here.
