DStv Premium subscribers can now have Showmax bundled with their packages, for free.

Showmax is normally priced at R99 per month.

“DStv Premium customers will be able to access Showmax via the DStv Now app, as well as their PC, laptop, mobile device, media player, or smart TV,” explains MultiChoice. 

Showmax is also available on DStv Explora decoders.

The Showmax subscription gives customers access to two concurrent streams on different devices. Showmax also gives customers the option to download up to 25 TV shows and movies to their smartphone or tablet for viewing later, said the company.

The announcement comes after Naspers recently merged DStv Digital Media with Showmax Africa.

The new division has not been named, but will be overseen by MultiChoice CEO Mark Rayner until a division head is found.
