Get The Girlfriend Experience for free this summer

2018-11-14 15:58

It’s been called “TV’s most adult show” and “the most compelling drama on TV”, and now, thanks to the Vodacom and Showmax summer deal, you can binge-watch both seasons of sexy series The Girlfriend Experience for free.

When watching your favourite series and films there is nothing worse than your data running out in the middle of an exciting scene - which are a dime a dozen in The Girlfriend Experience, the critically acclaimed, risqué drama starring Riley Keough as a law intern turned high-end escort.

Luckily for you, Showmax and Vodacom have launched an excellent deal to prevent you from being left hanging by a data fail this summer.

Get 3 months of Showmax and 15 GB free Vodacom data  

Vodacom customers who sign up to Showmax and add it to their bill before 31 January 2019 will get three months of free access to the video on demand service, plus three months of free Showmax data. 

That’s right: for three months, you’ll have free, unlimited access to exclusive series like The Girlfriend Experience, HBO’s Succession, Vikings Season 5 and BBC’s The Last Post, some incredible local titles, including The River, Housekeepers, Spoorloos and The Queen express from the DStv broadcasts, epic Hollywood movies, not to mention a smoking-hot series line up, including boxsets of long-running shows like the Big Bang Theory plus the latest seasons of the most addictive series, from The Handmaid’s Tale to Westworld.

So how does it work?

Vodacom customers who add Showmax to their bill between 1 November 2018 and 31 January 2019 will receive 15 GB of free Showmax data (5 GB per month for three months).

On top of this, the normal R99 per month Showmax subscription fee will be waived for three months.

There’s no contract or lock-in period – meaning you’re not tied into a contract and Showmax can be cancelled at any time. 

The deal is available to both prepaid and contract Vodacom customers. To sign up for the deal, visit

What happens once the three months is up?

Once the three months’ free access period has expired, customers who continue with Showmax will then be charged R49 per month for the following nine months – still a fantastic discount.

In total, this means that a year of Showmax, which would normally cost R1 188, will instead only cost R441 –  and don’t forget the 15 GB of free Showmax data for the first three months. 

Data-saving tools

Still worried about data? Showmax apps feature bandwidth capping functionality, giving viewers the ability to select the most appropriate quality level for the device being used. The low data usage setting, which is perfect for watching on cellphones and tablets, gives 45 hours or more of viewing from 15 GB. 

Binge-watch all your favourite series, from Insecure, Harlots and Younger to Ash vs Evil Dead S1, Criminal Minds S1-12, HBO’s Camping and much more, all summer long!
