DStv Premium customers in South Africa have something to celebrate – they will now get Showmax, worth R99 per month, at no charge. In addition to getting access to Showmax’s catalogue of more than 35 000 TV show episodes and movies via the DStv Explora decoder, DStv Premium customers will also be able to access Showmax via the DStv Now app, as well as their PC, laptop, mobile device, media player or smart TV.

“More and more customers are telling us they love to binge-watch boxsets on DStv Catch Up and Showmax. It’s the way the world is moving and that’s why we’re offering all our Premium customers Showmax, so they can enjoy this exceptional experience,” said Mark Rayner, CEO of MultiChoice South Africa.

DStv Premium customers already have the freshest local and international content first on DStv and can now get boxsets of previous seasons from Showmax. This is a great way to discover and watch a series from the very beginning – watching previous seasons on Showmax and then catching the latest season fresh on DStv.

Showmax is also home to new shows that can’t be seen anywhere else. Some of the series exclusive to Showmax include: The Young Pope, starring Jude Law and Diane Keaton; Taboo, starring Tom Hardy; Younger, about which Glamour Magazine said “nothing on TV has ever captured the Sex and the City vibe like Younger has”; and the brand-new Season 11 of Doctor Who, featuring Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor.

Recent additions only on Showmax include Harlots, described by Variety as “Think Downton Abbey meets Game of Thrones” (all available seasons of both Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones are on the platform, too) and both seasons of chilling horror series Channel Zero.

The Showmax subscription gives customers access to two concurrent streams on different devices, so parents can watch their shows on the big screen while the kids watch cartoons on their tablet. Showmax also gives customers the option to download up to 25 TV shows and movies to their smartphone or tablet for viewing later. It’s perfect for long road trips and flights.

To make accessing Showmax hassle-free, a link has been added to the DStv Now app. Premium customers can use up to four mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets to access the DStv Now app.
