How To Connect Showmax To Your DStv Account

If you are a DStv subscriber on one of the DStv Packages then you have the option to connect your Showmax to your DStv account as well as your Explore and watch Showmax through your DStv decoder. This means that you can opt to pay for Showmax as part of their monthly DStv bill.

Depending on what package you subscribe to you can either get Showmax for Free or pay the full amount.

All other DSTV package subscribers below DStv Compact need to pay the full amount for their Showmax account, but they can still connect it to their account and decoder.
