You love entertainment – that’s why you’re already a DStv Compact or Compact Plus subscriber. But now, for a limited period, enjoy even more top-notch entertainment with a huge saving on your Showmax subscription.

DStv Compact and Compact Plus subscribers who add Showmax to their DStv bill before 7 April 2019* will receive a two-month-long no-cost test drive of the streaming service.

Plus, once the free test drive is over, Compact and Compact Plus subscribers will only pay R49 per month to carry on watching Showmax.

That means not paying a cent for two months’ worth of streaming The River and hot new local drama Unmarried, Game of Thrones (all 7 seasons) and award-winning local movies including Inxeba: The Wound.

And after two months is up, Showmax will only cost R49 per month – a saving of R50/per month.

*Note that only first-time signups to Showmax qualify for the two-month free trial.
