showmax mobile


Showmax is one of the top online video on demand services that we have in the country. They have a huge collection of TV shows and movies that you can binge on at home or on the move via their Showmax apps.

We now live in an era where we moved on from watching our favourite TV shows on regular broadcast TV to binging on them on streaming platforms like Showmax. You can watch shows that were aired years back and you didn’t have a way to watch them back then or a current show that is on air right now on US networks and you obviously can’t watch them here.

For only KES 250, you can enjoy 3 months of premium Showmax which is only available if you pay via MPESA only.
