How to Add Showmax to Your DStv Bill

If you are like me and you enjoy consuming a variety of content (football, movies, music, documentaries, etc ), you might find yourself subscribing to multiple streaming and cable platforms at the same time. For instance, for movies and live streaming on the go, I use Showmax, and for other content, DStv. However, consistently subscribing (monthly) to both platforms can be quite a challenge.

To solve this, Multichoice decided to introduce an option to let users with both Showmax and DStv account holders add their Showmax bill to DStv. For instance, If you are a DStv Premium customer, you can add Showmax standard plan to your DStv bill at no extra cost and if you’re on a lower package, you only pay 50% of your Showmax plan. This lets you binge on even more incredible movies, local and international series, and kids’ shows, whenever you want.

Users on DStv Compact Plus plan, Compact, Family, or Access plan get 50% off their standard subscription when they add it to your DStv bill.
