ShowMax is a sister company to DSTV and will have quite a lot of Kenyan and African content. This won’t be difficult as they can source from DSTV.

In a clear indication of their commitment to the Kenyan market, ShowMax has data centers here and this will speed up delivery of content. The company is also in talks with Safaricom to launch a ShowMax data bundle.

Showmax was launched in South Africa in August 2015 and is available in 36 countries in Africa and 65 countries worldwide.
