What is Showmax?

Showmax is not a TV channel.

It’s a streaming service where you can watch movies, series, documentaries, sport and kids’ stuff. Watch online at or using the Showmax app. The Showmax app is available for phones, tablets, smart TVs, media players and gaming consoles.

All you need is a subscription and a device that can connect to the internet to watch Showmax.

What are the different Showmax plans?

  • Showmax’s standard plan comes with thousands of movies and series to stream.
  • Showmax Pro comes with everything in the standard plan, plus live sport from SuperSport, and live news and music channels. Read more about Showmax Pro.
  • Showmax Mobile and Showmax Pro Mobile are the mobile versions of the plans above. They’re half the price, because even though you can watch all the same content, you can only do so on one device – a phone or tablet. Read more about the difference between standard Showmax and mobile Showmax.
