Showmax Reduces Mobile Subscription Price Across Africa

Showmax has reduced the price of its mobile subscription plan across Africa. The new price reflects a 20% decrease on the previous monthly fee which has been the price since its launch in November 2019.

“We believe this change will be appreciated by our mobile customers as will the decision not to increase any of our other prices,” says MultiChoice Group CEO for Connected Video, Yolisa Phahle.

“We have our most exciting slate of Showmax Originals this year and look forward to more of our subscribers enjoying our proudly African stories”.

Here are the changes in the Mobile Subscription of Showmax

Country  Old price New price

It will interest you to know that the mobile versions of Showmax and Showmax Pro are designed for anyone who only watches on a mobile device like a phone or tablet. Standard versions are ideal for Showmax subscribers who use more than one device to watch, like a laptop or computer, or a smart TV, or for families who want to stream two shows concurrently.

So far, the company has already released four Showmax Originals: Tali’s Baby Diary, the small-town psychological thriller DAM, the Kenyan police procedural Crime and Justice, and reality series I Am Laycon, Nigeria’s first Showmax Original.

Showmax Mobile’s price is now the same as the mobile offering from its main competitor – Netflix.
