Showmax, Multichoice’s video-on-demand service has added a pretty nifty feature that will make some users quite happy.
They have now added live news streaming on the platform from major news companies. This includes BBC World News, Al Jazeera, Sky News, CNN, Euronews, and Newzroom Afrika.
This is available on Showmax on the web (Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Edge), Samsung smart TVs from 2017 or later, LG smart TVs from 204 and later, Android 4.4.0 or higher smartphones and Android TVs. Showmax says they will add support for Apple TV and iOS later on.
One of the major reasons why people keep up with traditional TV is to watch the news, either from local news outlets or international ones. DStv, Showmax’s sibling, has both local channels that broadcast the news as well as the international news and now Showmax has been given the same treatment.
Showmax has been steadily adding value to their subscription for a while They started off by offering the usual TV shows and movies like every other subscription models. They moved on to streaming shows as they come out, like the new season of Westworld which is pretty cool. Last year, they started offering live sports streaming, which was major since a lot of people out there pay money to catch up with their favorite sporting events.
The service is also giving out a pretty cool 3-month subscription for the price of one month that is going to end pretty soon so you can check that out here.
