With the Premier League starting this Friday (newly promoted Brentford hosting Arsenal), there's some good news for football fans who do not want to sign up for the full DStv bouquet. Showmax Pro will be the only streaming service on the continent to live stream every single match of the English Premier League, La Liga and Serie A and the DStv Premiership, courtesy of SuperSport. Subscribers in South Africa will also be able to stream the UEFA Champion’s League. 

The cost? R449 for Showmax Pro or R225 for Showmax Pro Mobile. Unfortunately, customers paying for Showmax via DStv will not be able to add Showmax Pro to their accounts. They would need to pay separately with an alternative payment via the Showmax website. 

If you're currently subscribed to Showmax and want to upgrade to Showmax Pro, you need to go to My Account > manage subscription and follow the prompts.  

Still undecided? Showmax is currently running a special offer - get two months of Showmax Pro for the price of one if you sign up before the end of August. Visit https://www.showmax.com/eng/welcome-pro for more.

Below some more information on what you receive on each Showmax package.
