African streaming service Showmax is adding even more local content for Nigerian subscribers with a selection of local live channels now available in its streaming catalogue that include Channels TV, NTAi and SilverbirdTV.
The live streams will be available to Showmax and Showmax Pro subscribers, including the mobile plans, and will be available on web and mobile devices, as well as select Samsung and LG Smart TVs. This is in addition to Showmax’s unique combination of African content, first and exclusive international series, the best kids’ shows, and, on Showmax Pro, live sport from SuperSport.
Showmax already streams some of the most talked-about Nigerian series including Enakhe and Riona, new dating show Shoot Your Shot, and Akin Omotoso’s new movie The Ghost and the House of Truth that comes first to Showmax in November.
Showmax is also home to international series that aren’t available anywhere else to binge-watch, with award-winning titles like 2020 Emmy winners Watchmen and Succession, hit HBO series like Game of Thrones and Insecure as well as blockbuster movies like Cold Pursuit, Robin Hood and Hunter Killer. Showmax also has an extensive catalogue of first on Showmax series including Siren, the addictively dark mermaid series, thrilling spy drama Condor and action-packed special-ops series Strike Back.
With a local-first approach, everything about Showmax – the content, apps, pricing, packages and partnerships – is tailored to African audiences. Speaking about the development, Yolisa Phahle, CEO of MultiChoice’s Connected Video, said: “We’re constantly working on new ways to improve the Showmax experience for our subscribers. Whether it’s enabling Verve card payments or daily episodes of Africa Magic favourites like Tinsel, My Flatmates and The Johnsons, our local-first approach keeps our Nigerian subscribers top of mind. These additional live streams are another way that Showmax is changing the game in streaming in Africa.”
The addition of the live channels follows the launch of Showmax Pro, which features all Premier League, Serie A and La Liga matches, as well as other live sport events from SuperSport – something no other streaming service on the continent is offering. Both Showmax and Showmax Pro are available on a mobile plan that is half the price and available to stream on mobile devices.
