Showmax is gearing up to launch a revised offering powered by NBC Universal’s Peacock platform.
Subscription video-on-demand service Showmax has announced the pricing of its revamped offering from February, including a cut to its cross-platform entertainment plan from R99 to R89 per month. It is also offering Africa’s first standalone live Premier League mobile streaming plan for R69, while the mobile-only entertainment plan is priced at R39.
After teaming up with US entertainment giant Comcast, Showmax will begin migrating subscribers to its new platform on 23 January, which comes ahead of an official campaign launch on 12 February. The migration will be staggered across 44 African markets.
