Showmax, a video-on-demand ( VoD) service, announced on Thursday that it is now offering a free two-month trial for DStv Compact and Compact Plus customers.
The VoD service said from 7 February until 7 April, DStv Compact and Compact Plus subscribers who add Showmax to their DStv bill will receive a two-month-long no-cost test-drive of the streaming service.
Showmax is normally priced at R99 per month. A two-month no-cost test-drive has now been made available to DStv Compact and Compact Plus customers.
The Showmax free test drive can be cancelled at any time. Once the two month period is over, Compact and Compact Plus customers will be charged the discounted rate of R49 per month.
Showmax is accessed via apps for smart TVs, gaming consoles, media players, Apple TV, smartphones, tablets, the DStv Explora decoder, and through web browsers for laptops and desktop computers. Shows and movies can also be downloaded to smartphones and tablets for viewing later while offline.
