What’s the difference between Showmax and Showmax Pro? 

As always, the mobile versions of Showmax and Showmax Pro are perfect for anyone who only watches on a mobile device. Standard plans, on the other hand, are ideal for Showmax subscribers who use more than one device to watch, like a laptop or computer, or a smart TV, or for families who want to stream two shows concurrently.

Showmax Pro bundles the existing Showmax entertainment offering with music channels, news, and live sports streaming from SuperSport. Live sport featured on Showmax Pro includes all Premier League, Serie A, La Liga, and PSL games.

There is also a wide range of live sports events including athletics, professional boxing, and the world’s biggest marathons.  Additionally, the Pro plan includes a selection of live news channels, such as Euronews, Africanews, among others.
