Showmax Has a Deal for DStv Customers: How to Add It To Your DStv Bill


 Showmax is one of the many competent video on demand apps out here.

The service, which is owned by MultiChoice, has been serving customers for an extended period, and has seen some improvements with even more content in the name of Showmax Pro.

Any customer can hop in the Showmax bandwagon because sign up does not need a person to have a DStv. Still, there are special deals for DStv subscribers in Kenya.

Those who have a DStv Premium subscription can add Showmax (not Pro) to their DStv at no extra cost. This means the customer can get access to additional TV shows and films to watch without paying anything on top of their DStv bill.

Customers who have Compact Plus, Compact, Family or Access can get 50% off Showmax (again, not Pro) if they choose to add it to their overall bill.

The deal is key because customer can watch more without paying another (or more money) bill for the streaming platform.

How to add Showmax to DStv bill from the My DStv app

  1. Download the My DStv app (iOS or Android)
  2. Select ‘Showmax on Us’, followed by ‘Activate Now’.
  3. Start watching.
