Showmax kids

Here are four reasons to start enjoying Showmax with your kids.

  1. Kids' content from the best networks

    Showmax has an extensive collection of shows and movies for children of all ages, featuring the best shows from Nickelodeon, Moonbug, CAKE, BBC and more.

  1. Popular characters kids will love

    Younger kids will find their favourite characters from series including Paw Patrol, My Little Pony, Cocomelon, Peppa Pig, Shaun the Sheep and LEGO City Adventures. Older kids won't be left out as they tune into Henry Danger, Victorious, Find Me in Paris, Adventure Time, The Thundermans, Monster High and Trolls.

  1. Family movies to enjoy together

    Showmax is packed with animated and live-action movies for kids of all ages, from Julia Donaldson's The Gruffalo and Zog to Boss Baby, Jungle Beat and The Croods. There are also beautiful nature documentaries, including Africa's Wild Horizons and Shark with Steve Backshall.

  1. Stream safely using Kids Profiles

    Showmax lets you set up multiple profiles from a single account. Set up a Kids Profile for your children and they'll only be able to see the shows and movies suitable for kids in their age group. For extra security, enable Parental Control which allows you to set a PIN to limit access to age-restricted content. Here's how to set up a kids profile.
