  • What is Showmax?

    There's always something new to discover and enjoy with Showmax, an ad-free video-on-demand service that offers a vast selection of top series, movies, documentaries, Showmax Originals, kids shows, sports, and more, all for one low monthly price. You can watch as much as you want, whenever you want, with new content added weekly. Best of all, there are no contracts, and you can cancel at any time.

    Showmax offers four plans: Showmax Mobile, Showmax, Showmax Pro Mobile, and Showmax Pro. Our Pro plans give you access to all the entertainment you love, as well as live sports from SuperSport and 24/7 news channels. While Showmax and Showmax Pro come with the option to watch on two devices at the same time, including smart TVs and computers, our mobile plans limit watching to one device at a time and only on mobile devices or tablets.

  • Which live sports from SuperSport are available on Showmax Pro?

    SuperSport gives Showmax Pro subscribers a front-row seat to top sporting events from around the world, including:

  • Which devices can I watch Showmax on?

    This depends on which plan you choose. With either the standard Showmax or Showmax Pro plan, you can watch on up to two devices at the same time, including smartphones, tablets, computers, smart TVs, and media boxes. If you choose one of our more affordable mobile plans, you can watch on one mobile device or tablet at a time.

    Please note that you can modify your plan at any time. In addition, the live streaming content available on our Pro plans, which includes live sports from SuperSport, is not supported on video game consoles and some older smart TVs.

    Showmax offers a variety of plans to suit different preferences and budgets, with prices starting at just R39 per month.

  • If I qualify for a free trial, how will I be billed?

  • Do I need an internet connection?

    Yes. Showmax is an online video-on-demand service that requires a stable internet connection with a minimum speed of 5 to 10 Mbps, either over Wi-Fi or a mobile network.

    To help ease any data burdens, we offer three different streaming qualities, giving you more control over how much data you use. You can also save data by downloading content via the Showmax app when data is free or inexpensive and watching it offline later on your mobile device.

  • What’s the difference between content that is "streamed" versus "downloaded"?

    Showmax offers two ways to watch content, both of which require Wi-Fi or a mobile network:

    • "Streaming" is the process of watching content live or on demand while connected to the internet. Content is not stored on the device, but a file is still being sent and is being shown as it's received. If you wish to stream the content again, the content file will need to be sent again.
    • "Downloaded" content has already been downloaded to a device's memory and can be watched at a later point, even while offline. Downloading the content to the device requires an internet connection, but once the content file has been downloaded, it doesn't need to be sent again to watch it again.

  • What is the Showmax app, and how do I get it?

    Our app provides you access to our entire catalogue of content on your mobile device, smart TV, media box, computer, Xbox, or PS4. On your mobile device, you can also download shows and movies to watch while offline.

    To download the app, go to the app store on your device, search "Showmax", select the app, and then proceed with the download. To start watching, sign up at and select a subscription plan. Once you’re a subscriber, log in to the Showmax app on your device and start watching!
