Record-breaking reality shows like the Showmax Originals ‘Somizi & Mohale’, ‘The Union’ and ‘Life With Kelly Khumalo’. Lokshin Bioskop movies and SAFTA-winning classics like the drama ‘Lockdown’, the comedy series ‘Hotel’, the action-packed ‘iNumber Number’ and much more.
Users of Showmax’s subscription-free offering will see adverts during playback and be prompted to upgrade to Showmax paid plans. Customers will be able to easily upgrade to the full ad-free Showmax entertainment catalogue to access complete seasons of the latest local and international series, blockbuster movies and kids’ content.
