What to watch on Showmax

What can you do with two free months of Showmax, you ask? Catch up on series like Game of Thrones - Showmax is the only place streaming Seasons 1-7 - or Suits, up to Season 8.

Binge series that are first on Showmax, like spellbinding drama series The Magicians and cringeworthy HBO comedy Sally4Ever.

Don’t miss local favourites like Hotel, starring Schalk Bezuidenhout, and Die Radio Raps Show, presented by Jonathan from the East Rand and his truly amazing peaked cap.

There are also hot Showmax Originals, including The Girl From St Agnes. It has a killer cast, including the magnificent Makgotso M. The latest Original, Trippin With Skhumba, hits Showmax at the end of February.

And in March, don’t miss the ultimate burn: Comedy Central Presents the Roast of AKA is coming uncut and uncensored to Showmax.
