Showmax Pro brings EPL live-streaming to Nigeria

Streaming platform Showmax has launched a new service, Showmax Pro, which bundles the existing Showmax entertainment service with music channels, news, and live sport streaming from SuperSport.

Showmax Pro brings EPL live-streaming to Nigeria

The streaming service, which makes it possible to watch sports live on devices like desktop computers and phones, is now available in more than 40 African countries.

One of the unique features of the Showmax streaming platform is its extensive local category. Nigerian subscribers can stream a wide range of Nigerian series and movies, including the latest season of Big Brother Naija which will be live-streamed on Showmax for the first time this year. Other favourites with Nigerian viewers are Mercy & Ike, Halita, and Judging Matters, as well as international hits like Game of Thrones, Insecure, and Billions.

A key development for African markets has been adapting the service for the data connectivity constraints on the continent and focusing on the most-used viewing devices. In November last year, Showmax launched a mobile-only service for smartphones and tablets featuring all of the Showmax content but at half the cost of the standard Showmax service and consuming less data. This service has also proven popular, so in addition to the standard version of Showmax Pro there will also be a mobile-only version at half the price.

Showmax launched in Nigeria in 2019 and is available across Africa. Features and pricing for the different Showmax plans are as follows:
