The streaming site, Showmax, launches a free subscription service, tagged “Showmax Free” for its users in South Africa.
It would allow users to watch “handpicked” ad-supported shows.
However, the aim is to create an opportunity for the customers in South Africa to experience some of its entertainment catalogues.
Featuring in “Showmax Free” are series, local movies and shows.
Users will get to enjoy the first few episodes of popular shows, series along with top-rated movies and highlights of sporting activities.
Showmax expects that many users will be prompted to upgrade to the paid subscription plan.
The upgrade will enable customers to see the full catalogue of the streaming site, like full series, international movies, sports shows, and ad-free entertainment.
How to access it
Certainly, “Showmax Free” is separate from the 14 days trial that Showmax offers its paid subscription.
The free trial is also for those who are considering subscribing to have a feel of what the streaming site is like.
However, its operations will remain the same.
Showmax Free will be accessible to everyone in South Africa with an internet-connected mobile device or a desktop.
However, users aren’t mandated to open an account as they can access it through the website.
To access it on the website page, click on the top left with a “free show” inscription.
Then users will be redirected to a page with the free content.
Asides from the website, users can also access Showmax Free by downloading the app and turning the “Free mode” function to enjoy free content.
