As a DStv subscriber, you can stream or download your favourite Showmax series on any device that connects to the internet – your smartphone, your tablet, your laptop, your smart TV and even your Xbox or PS4.

There’s no shame in a pizza-and-bingewatch day with your favourite comedies and club duvet. You can lose yourself in the latest series, express from the US, or settle in for all the drama and intrigue with the best of HBO. Showmax has you covered, with unlimited streaming for only R99 per month.
