Showmax launches pop-up live streams of kykNET and Mzansi MagicBy Staff Writer 18 January 2021 | Categories: news
Showmax subscribers in South Africa are now able to live stream kykNET and Mzansi Magic 24/7 with the launch of two pop-up channels on the streaming service. The streaming service notes these are two of their most popular local channels, and subscribers should be able to stream everything on kykNET and Mzansi Magic live.
This includes brand-new Afrikaans shows Afgrond S1, 4 Mure S1 and Slot S1, returning series like Binnelanders S16, Boer Soek ‘n Vrou S13, Die Boekklub S3 and Anzel In Die Boland S2, as well as Mzansi Magic shows like Abandoned S1, Date My Family S8 and Our Perfect Wedding S8.
The Mzansi Magic live stream is available exclusively in South Africa while kykNET is also available in Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The live streams will be available on all Showmax plans including Showmax, Showmax mobile, Showmax Pro and Showmax Pro mobile, until 31 March 2021. Showmax and Showmax Pro – which includes live sport from SuperSport including all Premier League, Serie A and La Liga matches – are available as standalone streaming services to anyone with an internet connection and the right device, such as phones, tablets, smart TVs and notebooks, starting at R49 per month.
Showmax’s mobile plans give full access to all the content on Showmax or Showmax Pro for half the price, with the Showmax mobile app offering data-saving settings that limit data usage to less than 100 MB per hour.
MultiChoice Group CEO for General Entertainment and Connected Video, Yolisa Phahle, says, “We’re always looking at ways of making the Showmax experience better for our customers. During last year’s lockdown, we gave subscribers access to live news channels. Now, following this month’s Presidential address, South Africans will continue to spend more time at home, and so, once again, we’d like to make sure our customers have something extra.”
Other highlights to stream on Showmax this January include The Real Housewives of Durban, the final season of Vikings, R-rated comedy PEN15, a special episode of HBO’s Euphoria and award-winning South African film Moffie.
