Beginning 09 February, DStv Premium subscribers can now enjoy the best streaming international series and movies via Showmax at no extra cost, as MultiChoice Namibia introduces its brand new Showmax Add to Bill offering.
Showmax has secured a stellar programming line-up for February, including The Stand, an apocalyptic drama based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel, season 4 of the critically acclaimed series Fargo, season 6 of the ever-popular Emmy and Saturn Award-nominated series Bosch and the 6-episode British drama series The Bay, seasons 3 and 4 of the comedy High Maintenance and 2020 Directors Guild of Canada Award winning apocalyptic drama Utopia Falls.
Roger Gertze, Managing Director at MultiChoice Namibia, said Showmax Add to Bill was launched in response to their customers’ changing consumption patterns because of video entertainment services increasingly moving online.
“As an ICT anchor within Namibia, it’s only fitting that we maintain pace with these trends and provide greater access to our existing online entertainment offering. Showmax Add to Bill now makes it easier for DStv subscribers to access these services,” Gertze said.
Compact Plus, Compact, Access and Family customers can add Showmax to their DStv subscription for half the standard Showmax subscription price of N$72.50 by also visiting http://www.dstvafrica.com, selecting ‘activate’ on the Showmax banner, selecting ‘Add to Bill’, accepting the quotation, choosing between a once-off or recurring payment, selecting their referred payment method (card or EFT), selecting ‘save and pay’, selecting ‘create an account’, and completing the account set-up to watch Showmax.
Subscribers can link one Showmax account per DStv subscription. In the case of customers being subscribed to over one DStv package, Showmax can be linked to each package and will be discounted according to either the free or half price offering.
