6 reasons to get ShowMax:

There’s something for everyone – here’s why you should give it a try.

1.There’s so much to watch – from Kenya to Hollywood

ShowMax has top shows like Game of Thrones, Vikings, The Big Bang Theory, Ballers and Roots as well as loads of Kenyan favourites like The Churchill Show and Hapa Kule, not to mentions hundreds of movies and family-friendly cartoons for the kids.

2. Watch offline on your mobile device

Get ShowMax and download up to 25 shows using the Android or Apple app and then watch them offline wherever you are – whether you’re stuck in traffic or the kids need something to keep them busy on holiday. Take advantage of free Wi-Fi at the office and don’t worry about data while you’re out and about.

3.Control how much data you use

If you want to use your data to download a show, the ShowMax app tells you exactly how much data you’ll need. The app has four quality settings – choose a lower setting to maximise your data, especially if you’re watching on a smaller screen. At the lowest setting a 20-minute episode of Big Bang Theory needs about 80MB of data, perfect for watching on your phone.

4.Signing up is easy

Signing up for ShowMax is easy – use your email address or sign up with Facebook.

5.ShowMax Select (ksh 330) vs ShowMax Premium (ksh 880)

ShowMax Premium, priced at KSh 880 per month, has a full range of international and local content – plus you get 14 days free. ShowMax Select, priced at KSh 330 per month, is a mobile-first, data optimised product that offers reduced data consumption with savings of up to 75%, has a specific focus on local content, and is paid for using M-Pesa.
