DStv Premium subscribers: how to get free Showmax

Posted by radio On September - 13 - 2017

Having a DStv Premium account means getting Showmax at zero (to be clear, that’s nil, zilch, nada) additional cost. That means getting access to over 25 000 shows to watch on multiple devices from big screen TVs to phones, without paying anything extra.

Simply link your Showmax account to your DStv account – or sign up to Showmax if you haven’t already – and you’re good to go!

 

 

 

 

 

How do I add Showmax to my DStv account if I’m already a Showmax subscriber?

If you have a credit, cheque card or Paypal subscription, simply login to your Showmax account and change your payment method to “DStv add to account”. These are the steps:

  1. Go to www.showmax.com and sign in.
  2. Go to Manage Account and click on Manage Subscription.
  3. Select “DStv add to account” as your payment method.
  4. Sign in with your DStv login details (Connect ID) and accept the terms and conditions.
  5. Add Showmax to your DStv account.
  6. Start watching your favourite shows right now at www.showmax.com, through your connected Explora or using the Showmax app on phones and tablets!

Previous payment methods will automatically be cancelled. Debit orders, for example, will stop coming off your bank account once you’ve linked your Showmax to your DStv account.

 

How do I add Showmax to my DStv account if I’m not a Showmax subscriber?

  1. Go to www.showmax.com.
  2. Sign up to Showmax with your email address.
  3. Create a password.
  4. Choose “DStv add to account” as your payment method.
  5. Sign in with your DStv login details (Connect ID) and accept the terms and conditions.
  6. Add Showmax to your DStv account.
  7. Start watching your favourite shows right now at www.showmax.com, through your connected Explora or using the Showmax app on phones and tablets!

 

I’ve already added my Showmax account to another partner’s bill. Now what?!

  1. If your Showmax subscription is currently being billed through one of our partners (e.g. bank, cellphone network), you may not see all the normal payment options available to you on the Showmax website’s payment screen.
  2. To cancel this type of subscription, contact the company that is billing you for Showmax (we unfortunately do not have access to their billing systems).
  3. Once this is done, you will be able to see the full list of payment options available on the payment screen on the Showmax website. (This is where other partners that allow you to add Showmax to your billing with them will appear.)
  4. Choose “DStv add to account” to add Showmax to your DStv bill.
  5. Sign in with your DStv login details (Connect ID) and accept the terms and conditions.
  6. Add Showmax to your DStv account.
  7. Get watching!

 

What if I’m a DStv subscriber but don’t have an Explora?

Don’t worry – DStv Premium subscribers don’t need Exploras to enjoy the binge-fest that is Showmax. Simply follow the steps above (sign up and add Showmax to your DStv account) and then start watching on an internet-connected device. Watch on a smartphone or tablet by downloading the Showmax app – choose to stream or to download shows to watch offline later. Otherwise, access Showmax on the web browser of your computer or laptop. No Explora necessary!

 

What do I get with Showmax?

  • Over 25 000 of the best series episodes, movies, kids’ shows and documentaries, with more added every week!
  • Watch your favourite shows anywhere on your phone, tablet, laptop or TV. All you need is the internet.
  • Download the best shows to watch offline using the Showmax app on your phone or tablet. (Queues, flights and road trips will never be the same again.)
  • Watch on two different screens at the same time. Share Showmax with your loved ones.
  • Thousands of shows for the kids with Kids Profiles available for fun and safe viewing.
