Showmax vs. Netflix

As far as I know,the main reason why people buy a Smart tv is for Netflix which allows streaming movies and tv series which is currently showing in America,so naturally its the latest trend to have.

Samsung does not support the Netflix app and Netflix is not supported in South Africa as yet

ShowMax  is the South African version that has recently been launched which comes as a subscription (R99 per month) which is why all the Samsung tvs have a ShowMax sticker on the boxers enabling the customer to sign up for 3 months free subscription

We do advise customers that they should have a 4mb uncapped line for optimum viewing.
