Did you know that Showmax groups similar shows together in boxsets called “collections”? We group shows by mood, by production studio, by theme, by awards, by genre and by the way they make us feel. This makes it amazingly easy to find what you’re looking for, no matter what you feel like watching, from light-hearted comedy, chick flicks, award-winning series and sterling stand-up to compulsive crime dramas, kick-ass kids’ shows and Oscar darlings.
