If you have a ShowMax subscription, then good for you, but if you watch on your Android device, then that is even better!

The streaming provider has added the ability to download shows to your Android device for when your Internet gets a bit slow, and when you are travelling with your device, without internet.

By adding download functionality we’re enabling people to take advantage of these connections and fill up on some great shows to watch later.Many South Africans are still internet have-nots, and have been excluded from using services like ShowMax.

You can save up to 25 shows at a time on your device and make use of them offline. This all depends on your storage capacity too. The content will then be visible for 30 days before it will be automatically deleted. Once you have started watching something, you will then have 48 hours to complete it before it too gets deleted. You can however just download the deleted shows again if you wanted to.

There are over 12 000 hours of content available on ShowMax, of which some of this includes the entire series of Game of Thrones, The Big Bang Theory, and more. As the Internet grows in SA, more and more consumers will have a decent streaming service to subscribe to, and ShowMax seems to be the best for your money.

You can download the ShowMax app for Android today and sign up to ShowMax at R99 per month. ShowMax plans on releasing downloading to iOS devices early next year.
