The new wave of watching TV is by subscribing to video on demand services and one of them is Showmax. It has a collection of over 35,000 international and local movies and TV shows that are available to subscribers.
You may be curious on what Showmax is offering to its consumers and fortunately, they are partnering with Safaricom to offer Kenyans a 30 day free trial!
To activate the free trial, all you have to do is dial *400*3# on your phone if you are a Safaricom customer and follow the prompts. If you’re not convinced why you should activate the free trial, here are reasons why you should sign up:
Exclusive Content and HBO shows
One of the best things about Showmax is that they continuously update their catalogue by adding new and exclusive shows. On Showmax, you can watch shows that are currently being broadcasted in the States like the hit drama Mr Robot Season 3 and the popular animation South Park Season 21.
Showmax also has exclusive shows too like Tom Hardy’s Taboo, Younger, MMA drama series Kingdom, Harlots and of course Mr Robot Season 3.
HBO shows are incredibly popular outside the States and fortunately, Showmax has 34 HBO shows that you can watch. They range from the incredibly popular Game of Thrones to the classic drama The Sopranos, Big Little Lies, Westworld and Girls.
Initially, streaming services required you to be connected to the Internet to watch your favourite TV shows and videos.
Well, thankfully Showmax allows you to also download such content for offline viewing on your mobile devices. You can also set the quality of your download which can be important if you’re saving the content using limited data bundles.
Watch on multiple devices
Showmax allows you to watch content across various platforms. You can watch your favourite TV shows and movies on the web on your laptop, through mobile apps on iOS and Android and also through consoles like the Xbox One.
A cool trick is that you can stream two different shows on one subscription. A section of the family can decide to watch on the TV while the others can decide to watch a totally different show on Showmax. Each account can have upto five authorized devices, which gives one the ability to link their laptop, tablet, phones and also an Xbox One to their account.
Subscribing to Showmax and MPESA discount.
If your time is up after the 30 day trial, you may want to sign up for Showmax and they have a pretty good deal. You can get three months of premium Showmax subscription by paying only KES 250 via MPESA which is a massive deal! Check details on how to get this deal here.
This is way cheaper than what other streaming services available in Kenya are offering and it might be a good idea to cash on this limited offer.
