It is normal to have a limited internet connection to watch all the entertainment on a streaming platform. Good enough, most of these have the ability to download series episodes and movies directly to your device for offline viewing later. At least, Showmax does!
With such a feature, you can save data and ensure you will stay entertained even with a slow or no internet connection. You can use the Showmax app for Apple and Android smartphones and tablets to download. Laptops, computers, and other streaming devices do not support downloading.
Once downloaded, you can watch your downloads without needing to connect to the internet.
