Showmax has revealed that African mobile subscribers could pay up to 20% less each month.

What’s the difference between Showmax plans?
The mobile versions of Showmax and Showmax Pro are designed for anyone who only watches on a mobile device like a phone or tablet. Standard versions are ideal for Showmax subscribers who use more than one device to watch, like a laptop or computer, or a smart TV, or for families who want to stream two shows concurrently.
Showmax Pro bundles the existing Showmax entertainment offering with music channels, news and live sports streaming from SuperSport. Live sport featured on Showmax Pro includes all Premier League, Serie A, La Liga, and PSL games as well as a wide range of live sports events including athletics, professional boxing, and the world’s biggest marathons. Showmax Pro also includes a selection of live news channels, such as SABC News (South Africa only), Euronews, Africanews and Newzroom Afrika.
