Showmax reduces cost by 25% for mobile-only customers


Showmax mobile subscribers in Ghana will pay GHC16.99 a month for access to the full Showmax catalogue on a single mobile device. This is a more than 25% reduction on the previous price point of GHC 22.99.

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 look forward to more Ghanaians enjoying our proudly African stories.”

So far this year, the company has already released four Showmax Originals: the follow-up to the very popular Tali’s Wedding Diary: Tali’s Baby Diary; the small-town psychological thriller DAM; the Kenyan police procedural Crime and Justice, a co-production with CANAL+; and reality series I Am LAYCON, Nigeria’s first Showmax Original, featuring Big Brother Naija Season 5 winner, Lekan Agbeleshe aka Laycon.

Our Ghanaian subscribers can also catch the hit Akwaaba Magic telenovela Dede on Showmax at the reduced price.  Even more local content for Ghanaian Showmax subscribers with a selection of live local channels: GTV, TV3, Adom TV, UTV and GHOne.

Other Showmax Originals on the way in 2021 include the Cape Flats neo-noir murder mystery Skemerdans; a second co-production with CANAL+, Blood Psalms, an epic series based on ancient African mythology; and its first international reality TV series format, Temptation Island South Africa.

Showmax will also continue to bring the best of HBO, international series, movies and kids’ shows to Africa first.

The standard Showmax plan remains GHC 45.99, Showmax Pro remains GHC 119.99 and Showmax Pro mobile remains GHC 59.99 per month.
