As of this month, Showmax mobile subscribers in Kenya will pay Ksh 300 a month for access to the full Showmax catalogue on a single mobile device. This is a 20% reduction on the previous price point of Sh380.
Speaking about the price change, Yolisa Phahle, MultiChoice Group CEO for Connected Video, says, “We know that consumers are under pressure at the moment and we believe this change will be appreciated by our mobile customers as will the decision not to increase any of our other prices. We have our most exciting slate of Showmax Originals this year and look forward to more Kenyans enjoying our proudly African stories.”
Showmax will continue to bring the best of HBO, international series, movies and kids’ shows to Africa first, as well local favourites like Sauti Sol’s reality series Sol Family, the Kalasha-nominated drama series Monica, and award-winning Swahili telenovelas such as Selina and Pete.
The standard Showmax plan remains Sh760, Showmax Pro remains Sh2100 and Showmax Pro mobile remains Sh1050 per month. Promotional bundles will be unaffected by this change.
