5 Reasons to add Showmax to your DStv bill


If you haven’t added Showmax to your DStv bill as yet, here’s a round up of what you’re missing out on.

Gone are the days when you religiously sat in front of the telly to catch your favourite soapie stars get into another heated debate about that harlot from down the street who’s just about to… ah, nevermind. The digital era we live in calls for fresh content anytime, anywhere - that’s why we’ve empowered our customers to carry DStv in their pockets in the form of the DStv Now app.

In addition to DStv Now, DStv Premium customers also have the option of downloading Showmax right to their mobile device or Smart TV, and adding the subscription to their DStv bill. Depending on your DStv package, your subscription could be discounted significantly - 100% for Premium customers, in fact - simply by including it on your monthly DStv bill.

Haven’t added Showmax to your DStv subscription yet? Here are five reasons why you should.

5 reasons to add Showmax to your DStv subscription

1. Enjoy Showmax original shows like Tali’s Diary, Trippin with Skhumba and The Girl From St. Agnes.

As Africa’s best storyteller, Multichoice believes in telling our own stories - and Showmax is no different. Laugh out loud with comedian Skhumba, enjoy Tali’s airhead ideals about life or get sucked into the maze of deceit in the murder mystery at the private school St. Agnes.


2. If it’s not on DStv Now, you’ll definitely find it on Showmax.

Be it a movie that recently played on TV like Aquaman or a documentary such as The Manson Cult: The Lost Tapes, we’ll have it for you which means you don’t have to fret if you miss anything.


3. It’s got something for everyone. Seriously.

There’s a plethora of shows for the kids and for your inner child, and some are pre-selected for you like top-rated shows for the holidays and back-to-school shows that come with a lesson for the kids.


4. We lock in all goodness right here with more originals like Grassroots and Lockdown.

The two series have tackled issues plaguing South African communities, with Grassroots looking at themes of manhood and what a refuge sport can be to those from impoverished communities. Catch the first season of this beautifully woven drama on Showmax.

At the same time, and with each season getting better than the previous, Lockdown is coming back for a fifth season with a new addition to the stellar female cast of Manaka Ranaka, Pamela Nomvete, Nthati Moshesh and the award-winning Lorcia Cooper.


5. The best reason of all - it is cheap.

Did you know that if you’re a DStv subscriber, you pay even less (or nothing at all!) for Showmax? DStv Premium subscribers get Showmax for free while DStv Compact and Compact Plus subscribers only pay R49 for Showmax.
