Google Play Reviews

  1. Shaun Human-avatar

    I like the ability to watch a number of shows, especially good local content. However, I feel the app needs work. I regularly get errors, and connection issues. Downloads are often problematic in that shows don't download well and playback seems to work when it wants. I've had these issues with several devices on different networks. When it does work, the app is pretty good. I also enjoy the ability to watch several sports events from my phone while on the go. Would love more local sport.

  2. Leigh Olivier-avatar

    Rubbish app. It refuses to download anything unless the app is open on the download screen of the particular program. Turns off downloads if you switch to another app. Cannot run on the background to download anything like a properly functional app. It's terrible. Don't use it. My phone is a brand new Samsung Galaxy A20.

  3. niel findlay-avatar

    It's usefull on the go when I'm at work and up to date with my work...even at home when everyone is watching stuff on TV I disappear to the room to watch showmax...awesome app . To add, the app keeps on closing and does not down first I thought it was the phone but then I found that the other apps on my phone work just fine...

  4. Nos K-avatar

    The App will either say not responding, or if it does respond. The next day I'll find it uninstalled itself. I literally have to reinstall it daily, and it's annoying not to mention Data wasting. If you say this is related to my specific device, why is it that ALL my other Apps don't uninstall themselves, what is it that the other Developers are doing right on their Apps?

    Very poor and disappointing.On my very first day of one month subscription yet cant play or download anything.Each time I try even playing a trailer, it directs me to upgrading a higher three month subscription!!! This means my one month subscription has just gone like that.Will not add my money for an upgrade yet I have gotten nothing for what I have paid for.Had given you guys a try but SMH...NETFLIX way far much better.

  6. popo bamtaza-avatar

    Netflix still miles ahead when I download something it keeps on saying veryfying I have tried to force stop sign out and sign in again but nothing works. I said Netflix is still miles better because they allow easy navigation to find your favourite shows by nationality for example if u search Japanese or Korean they will show u shows from those countries but on showmax u do that and nothing comes up. Netflix can notifying u about oncoming shows and you can set reminders I haven't seen that showm

    Really not enjoying this app. For 2 days now I can't even watch the movies that I have downloaded. It keeps telling me "an unexpected player error occurred, please try again later" My subscription will expire soon, yet I can't watch any movie. Very annoying.

  8. loveth brown-avatar

    Very wonderful app!! 😍 Way better than Netflix 😀✨ I love this app so much 🥰 No glitches, I stream my movies online peacefully 😊 But there's just one problem 🥺 You guys don't upload all the seasons of a movie.. for example , I'm watching a movie tittled "Grownish" very nice movie and I'm so obsessed about it already 😭😭 I've finished the first season but can find the 2nd and 3rd seasons in the app🥺🤕 Please you guys should do something about this and real quick😭 I'm mad over this series🙏

  9. small bill-avatar

    The programing is fine. Can I just ask that you enable the screen minimization feature on the mobile screens so that one can still view the video while checking other apps on the phone. Netflix and Dstv Now video screens allow this but not Showmax which can be frustrating at time.

  10. Salma Hoosen-avatar

    I've Paid my subscription. But i cant watch anything without the upgrade option opening up. Even if i press cancel it doesn't allow me to watch what I've selected. Its doing this the entire day. What a waste of actually paying a subscription.

  11. Andreoli D Katts-avatar

    Andreoli D Katts


    I love that it has a variety of different shows and movies but it sucks because it's constantly "not responding". Since I've downloaded it, it's happened like more than 3 times. It's really annoying.!

  12. Jose Engelbrecht-avatar

    Jose Engelbrecht


    The app is buggy. Times of the day it works perfect and most times it lags. For us to configure our device and limit the experience where other streaming service are working perfectly is unacceptable, people pay for this.

  13. Craig B-avatar

    That advice has not fixed my issue, i had to clear the app info nd re-sign in nd lost my offline download. I have a 40meg line speed the app just says verifying after being downloaded it never allows you to watch the offline download. Netflix works perfectly why doesnt yours.

  14. Lisa Agunda-avatar

    since i started using showmax i have never been able to watch it on my tv. you're always saying you will do an update which has never happened. this has been happening for more that 2 years

  15. Lorhla_ Ntshinga-avatar

    Lorhla_ Ntshinga


    Why do yourl lie about the expiry dates. The episodes and movies expire two or three days after download when they are supposed to expire a month after you download it. I downloaded a movie on the 3rd of June and it was set to expire on the 3rd of July but instead it expires three days later

  16. Emmanuel Omotoso-avatar

    The app is interesting.... Make it more realistic,, its so painful to use data to watch movies,,after paying for registration...thats double issue to my part.

  17. Obed Kamau-avatar

    I'm disappointed after joining yesterday and subscribing the app tells me I don't have an internet connection while I'm using a stable WiFi and mobile data. I have to retry like 5 times so as to play a video

    I've been running around like a headless chicken looking for "my unique code" which is basically impossible to find! It either redirects me to dstv account or wastes my time.

    There's a 500 word limit to reviews, apparently. I was going to detail my experience with this app so far and let anyone reading decide for themselves. It turns out I can't give you all the details. I'll just say, this has been a disappointing waste of money.

  20. Tinashe Togara-avatar

    It's a pretty good app with a variety of good shows and good movies. The app interface is usable and quite fluid but not as good as Netflix. My main complaint is that when I download an episode of something, it will likely tell me the download is broken or show an error when I try to watch it. This happens most of the time. If you don't download, then everything else works well.

  21. Alex Rautenbach-avatar

    Alex Rautenbach


    Interface is terrible, whenever you locl your phone and reopen the app it gives an error message that it cannot establish decoder and the only way to make the app work again is to restart it.

  22. Suki Karks-avatar

    My showmax is down. Can't play downloaded brings AND1104 error. Please note that I have "forced stop showmax, restarted the phone, signed out and signed in again" to no avail

    I wrote the below review, followed your instructions and still nothing. Even uninstalled the app and reinstalled it. AND STILL DOING THE SAME THING. What is the deal with your crappy app? ****Seriously, every time I download or try stream I get 10min in and it says "oops something went wrong here". Why have an app if it doesn't work properly?? ****

  25. Yatva-Ashande Hinda-avatar

    The app is always glitching. It's very annoying. Even on the TV it's problematic.

  26. Wellington Moyo-avatar

    Wellington Moyo


    Great app! Two suggestions: 1.) There should be greater rewind and fast-forward options than just 10 seconds. 2.) Rewinding or fast-forwarding using the slider should give you scene-preview, like Netflix does. It's a cool feature to have. Please consider it. Thanks!!!! UPDATE: Seems you tweeked the rewind a bit. Much better! Thanks! Now what's only left is the ability to still preview scenes as you use the slide in rewind or forward.

  27. Shayur Bagwandeen-avatar

    Shayur Bagwandeen


    Love the range of shows and movies. I have a big problem with how slow and unreliable the downloading process is on the app. I have Netflix and it's done in a matter of minutes. Whenever I leave the Showmax app my downloads are never complete and I end up having to re-download movies. Please fix this I love using the app but I have times where I'm not connected to strong enough wifi and want to relax and watch an episode or movie.

  28. Kyl0kw-avatar

    Disastrous! Doesn't help to pay for a Mygiga media player only to find out that it will not work with Showmax!!!! Very disappointing indeed!!!! Do not understand this as my brother has the same set up and his works perfectly!! How does one understand that? I keep on getting the 'oops' message!!!! Not acceptable at all! Still waiting for a reply!!!!!

  29. BuffPandaGamer-avatar

    I really enjoy this app. Easy and understandable user interface but just three flaws that I noticed: 1. The app doesn't have a lot of content variety. 2. The app frequently gets connection errors even though I have a strong internet connection. 3. The content that is featured/displayed only becomes new featured content after a long delay when the content was originally released. But other than that, I trully am enjoying it. I even finished the whole series of The Avatar adventures of Aang.

  30. Tebogo Mabusela-avatar

    The Android TV version is not user friendly enough when it comes to series with very long seasons. There's no option to easily jump to the last episode or any episode of choice. The phone version however is very user friendly on this. Hope they introduce this feature on the Android TV version soon.

  31. Atli's Atality-avatar

    This is the second time Showmax does this to me😑I pay every month and yet I can't watch my downloads a week later, if this problem can't be fixed then I'll have to end my subscription so pleaasse fix it, other then that, I love your app! I'll give it two stars for now until the problem gets fixed🙂

  32. Monde Zwane-avatar

    This app is amazing and I love the content, but I seem to be having problems with downloading some things. For example, I am unable to have a completed download unless i remain in the app. This is quite frustrating, and DStv Now has a much better download feature (which shows outside the app) and i would love if that was implemented here.

  33. patrick selokela-avatar

    patrick selokela


    I wish I could call and blow this over because, I always download series and movies and when I have to watch them, I get a DRM error message! That is the pits! After I follow the instructions, it is too late and the download is gone meaning I have to waste my data and download again. Fix this right now !!!!

  34. Tara Kay-avatar

    Using the app affects the function of my phone when minimized. If I go out of the app to check and reply to messages it makes my phone glichy and causes ghost touching all over the place making typing a nightmare. It also makes all other processing very slow. When I go back into the app to continue watching then it tells me that my phone can't decode something or other and I have to completely restart my phone to use the app again. You should really fix this. It's annoying AF.

  35. Verona Ramoo-avatar

    Just love the convenience and easy access. Wish we had more latest series though.

  36. Buti Gerald-avatar

    Enjoyed myself on showmax platdorm during of lockdown through a voucher trial period that I won.unfortunately the thril was short-lived because I have been trying to extend my subscription permanently and I get stucked at a particular point of the application whereby they ask me to fill in a code or password cant remember exactly and whatever I put in it gets rejected. So I wish showmax had a phone in helpdesk whereby the consultant will guide me step by step how to overcome that hurdle.

  37. Hendre ackermann-avatar

    This is a great app. The experience is great and new shows are regularly added and recomended so there is always something to watch. The team behind the app is also amazing and they are always quick to answer questions or concerns on instagram or email ect.

  38. Shorty Calvin-avatar

    I was sceptical at first but my oh my; this app has definitely proven itself. I've literally been binging on episode after episode on my favorite series. You've just got to either have a lot of data or connected to wifi. It's totally worth it though. Easy to use & Great quality for such a simple app. Thanks guys.

  39. Terry The Beetlesaur-avatar

    Terry The Beetlesaur


    1. Too few shows, I expected a larger collection to view , especially local shows that cannot be found on Netflix. Kind of really disappointed with how small the collection is, and the expiration time limits being so short. 2. Interface not interactive enough. 3. There is no app for Microsoft.

  40. Oluwadamilola Ajibade-avatar

    Oluwadamilola Ajibade


    Never seen a more useless app! So many of the shows I want to see aren't on it. These guys would never ask if you want to continue with the subscription or not. They just go ahead to debit you! Netflix always sends emails ahead of the next subscription. It's so annoying!

  41. Junior Badu-avatar

    Not good video quality is poor but my network is good i wish it had settings for picture quality like 250p and 360p, 490p it would be a good app

  42. Ahmed Ademola Olugbile-avatar

    Ahmed Ademola Olugbile


    Everything seems perfect after complaints! But you need to implement the picture-in-picture feature so that one can minimise the player window and still do other things on the phone while watching videos please! It is very very important.

    I love this app but I'm trying to get my family to sign up and its not working everyime they click to watch the movie it goes to a upgrade page

  44. Getrude Dwani-avatar

    You get new movies as new as they come, and it is more nicer to have on the pc

  45. Bryan Sidders-avatar

    Hi I have had Showmax for a week now & still cant see how I find Movies & Series. When I open Showmax All under UTube all I get are short intros to Movies. NOT the actual Movies. How do I find the Movies & where ???? Bryan Johannesburg

  46. Jerry Mangi-avatar

    It took long to take action but all in all they came through. I would suggest you work on the payment process because of how frustrating it has been. Until my next subscription, I am going to leave it at 3 stars. Hope stuffs change by then.

  47. Chandre Matlala-avatar

    Chandre Matlala


    Wow Showmax! All of the great shows but the app genuinely sucks (mobile and web version). There are no previous or next buttons to switch between episodes which doesn't make sense...isnt that the whole point of the app? Convenient streaming? Ease of use needs to improve and system needs to be optimized to run faster.

  48. Patrick Loyatum-avatar

    Patrick Loyatum


    App is quite good. Would be nice to have the following functions added or improved: 1. Dark mode for the UI 2. Continuous playback on Chromecast doesn't work for series. 3. Adaptive streaming seems a bit faulty with lots of pauses. Probably an issue with back-end streaming servers more than client systems.

  49. Elaine Smith-avatar

    Very positive experience sofar, but would like to see more updated seasons on some of the series.

  50. Daniel Hurter-avatar

    Getting better and better. Needs pop-up player support for a floating window on Android. Changing the app background to a dark colour would lessen eye strain during browsing. Some integration with Google Assistant would also be appreciated. The device limit is troublesome as devices are not easily identified - rather take a Netflix approach and scrap this. Lastly, the app is a bit cumbersome on Android TV and could do with optimisation and skip support on left/right arrow presses during viewing.

  51. Nomzamo Madalane-avatar

    Nomzamo Madalane


    Really good, only problem I have is seasons are still behind on some shows. I found a series but it expired so can't watch it anymore and I had just started it and I didn't know it would expire. Overall everything good and great quality. Please add the app on Microsoft store for other devices.

  52. Adedamola Adewole-avatar

    At first this app was okay thought it wasnt up to other standards of apps likeNetflix or Amazon, but once I logged out for about 10mins and for me to sign in backand they say i should confirm my subscriptionand that i dont have any active subscription in which i just payed for am really sad though cause I had higher expectations for the app please do well to improve on this, just because I signed out does not mean I should lose my subscription though the app was limited in shows, it was ok a bit

  53. Charlene Vilakazi-avatar

    Rubbish app, its been a week not being able to access my downloads, i keep on getting a error message, tried contacting support no help there, i cant pay for something that gives me a headache i will stick with Netflix, pure bliss compared to showmax and their error codes😏

  54. Itu Tshego-avatar

    I live this app. The important feature it misses is zooming and cropping. It's an important and expected feature, please add

    Hi Pl be aware about the showmax special. After trying your free trial, you dont get any notifications, showmax automatically takes an amount off your account, which is not the special. They dont ask you. They can't reverse the charges. And you can get the special but you pay the amount they have taken off already plus the special price.

  56. Slindoh Mthimkhulu-avatar

    Keeps freezing after each call then after restarting my device says there is no content.... But guys I paid🤷‍♀️why should I receive such terrible service? I really regret taking the 3 month subscription - needless to say, after the 2months is up, I will be canceling, which is a shame cos there are great shows on the app... But I really can't be paying for something that doesn't work half the time

  57. RL Kloppers-avatar

    Great app, works quite well on Galaxy Tab. I have touch accidentally on a downloaded episode or movie that I want to watch later while scrolling down the list and then it will start playing with the effect that it will expire in 2 days when I want to keep it for a later date. If you can make the active "Play movie" component of the downloaded program a bit smaller so you don't touch it by accident while scrolling and then need to watch it within 2 days whilst you want to keep it for a later date

  58. Kamo Hlalele-avatar

    I love the content on Showmax, it it is so varied and meets all moods. However, I cant handle the fact that we can only watch on two devices simultaneously. What's the point of being able to load the app on 5 devices then being limited to watching on 2???

  59. Armandt Fourie-avatar

    Would like to be able to watch a series continuously without it disappearing and giving me the CAT1005 error message. Please help

  60. Le-Roy Coetzer-avatar

    The only thing that's needed in the app is the capability to save movies that you like and have easy access to the shows you like and want to keep for later viewing. Netflix has that but I'm really happy with the movies and shows that's on Showmax.

  61. Lauren Palace-avatar

    Bad 1st impression. Just created my profile a few hours ago and downloaded 25 shows, a few minutes later they all disappeared, except 1 show but you can see I downloaded 25 shows because it doesn't allow me to download other shows. I'm told to delete and install the app again, and I won't get my downloads back. Over an hour and 4GB of downloads down the drain. How do I know this won't happen after I download again and that I'd have wasted another 4GB ? Not impressed.

  62. Ashley Booysen-avatar

    Thank you ,App running smoothly now, after many glitches tho. But just as good as Netflix :)

  63. moya oreilly-avatar

    I'm not so pleased with the performance. Every time I watch a new episode a message pops up "showmax has stopped" then I restart the app.. this is frustrating.. I'm such a great fan and really hope this nonsense stops. Keep up the good work. Stay safe be blessed ✌

  64. Betty Kubai-avatar

    I'm editing my review. All you need is the Grace of God to use this app. Below is the previous review. It's an okay app but I don't like is how you log out someone mid watching due to an unknown error and delayed time in adding a movie on continue watching part, having to go back to search for the movie and forward to where one was.

  65. williams rotola-avatar

    There are no issues with the App on the phone. All the problems start and end with Showmax itself because they come up with some fantastic error codes like hap 1000. This happens even when ur subs are fully paid off and for no apparent reason.

  66. Tebogo M-avatar

    1. Can't download titles in the background, I must open the app until it's done downloading 🙄😩 2. The recent update messed up the picture quality so much 😭😭 it's really Terrible 😖 3. When I eventually get to download movies for offline viewing, I get an error message 😒

  67. Tseko Ncubuka-avatar

    I was happy with the app but now it doaesnt work on my phone since the begining of the year. You cant watch series as it the picture is not clear and can only hear voices. I have complained a number of time but nothing has been fixed am even thinking of cancelling my subscription sad

    Android connected devices are just listed as Android. I had more then 5 devices listed, theft of phones, browser logins by kids on PC, etc. I deleted several Android devices and now can't use my phone for Showmax as I've reached my maximum number to delete devices. Stupid, stupid stupid. Hence I'm using Netflix & cancelled subscription.

  69. Lucy Ntsoereng-avatar

    This app has been not working for the past 3 days. Its been saying "it has stopped working" every time I open it. When I was on the free trail it was nit doing that. But after the debit order went through few days later it acts up, what a coincidence.

  70. Gert Cronje-avatar

    I generally like the app. However after the last update, the continue watching list doesn't show the series name. This makes it very difficult to figure out what show it is from the small thumbnail. This is on Android TV.

  71. Dä Viz-avatar

    Thought everything was fine but now when I remove a download the incessant crashing is triggered again. I have to clear my download manager's cached data before the app can go back to working smoothly. Update: Now, only audio is downloaded. I won't bother using the download function from now on.

  72. Thato Rangaka-avatar

    It is quite exceptional. One thing I hope can be improved is to avail the fullscreen mode on android. And also the subtitle font selection. All in all it is fun and easy to use which suits me as a customer.

  73. mufaro d-avatar

    The app closes on it's own and deletes your downloads, it's costing me more than it is worth in data. The hassle of trying to get it to cooperate is too much and no it is not my device as l am using a new laptop, the app needs fixing

    Honestly showmax is the same as Netflix it does not have the same movies that has the movies and series from Disney channel Disney 💙🙌🙌🙌😁but it is good it's nice I love you maxed to just the same as you know Netflix but it's great you don't get to miss anything else you can spoil it for your friends and yeah just make sure you pay just make sure you have a Wi-Fi and that's

  75. omega OGUBUIKE-avatar

    This app is simply a trap i fell unto all movies and shows are outdated and auto renewal is done without the users consent ( pls look out for that) or apporval, some that better TV apps like Netflex don't do rather y they inform you at the end of your trial period to resubcribe so pls be aware of all the stated above and if you are going for a TV app pls try something better or best try Netflex, stay safe and keep off this fake app.

  76. Warau Kiiru-avatar

    Can be very disappointing. Download takes forever even after customer care has told you how to rectify the error. There is always one problem or another. I really love shomax if only it can be fixed to work well becasue one spends more time waiting to watch something or download instead of actually enjoying the shows.

  77. Doreen K-avatar

    It is funny how you pay for a monthly plan and after two weeks you are forced to upgrade to another plan. This happened to me and it is very inconveniencing. It's been two weeks only and now I access showmax.

  78. Zaza Fumbeza-avatar

    Was totally awesome when I used it for the first couple of months. And now it doesn't show any mages or videos rather...and all the movies, series, sports, etc are only audible but the screen is forever black. I'm not happy at all!!

  79. Martin Munyua-avatar

    Hi , great app and great streaming services but I have one issue with the sports section and I raised my my complaint earlier instead of giving the livestream much is why don't we have super select station itself like the way you have provided newslive stream news instead now live stream news you can have super select 12345678 up to where they go a live stream

    Geeeeez the download is so slow, network connection between other apps is well but the TV screen is blank. Highly disappointed. Live stream isn't clear. When watching, screen goes black. Worst mistake to cancel DStv subscription in hope to enjoy showmax 😥

    Why don't you have the same downloading system just like your Multichoice parent's Dstv now app? With Showmax downloading files is so slow one can download one file at the time. If you leave the app download won't Finnish. If I want to clear my downloads I have to contact live chat. But with Dstv now app everything so simple.

    It's a great app and I am actually very impressed by how much content you can watch now. Buuuuuuuuuut where is the recently watched delete option? Please work on that. It is necessary! Clicked on a movie that turned into what I didn't expect now it's on my recently watched 😕 can't delete it 😣

    Please you need to work on this app. Why does it take so long to download just one film, many times a whole day. It's not fair this is data we are talking about. If after this subscription expires I don't think I will be doing another one because it's waste of money. Not fair at all.

    It has the best local and international shows. The fact that it has News, makes it different from others. Family and friends can gather around and enjoy themselves due to the unlimited entertainment that it provide. In broader sense, it is worth R149,99

    My app keeps crashing. I find this very annoying, especially when I'm in the mood to watch something and it keeps giving me trouble to log in.

    It's good app ,but the developers should address the following 2 problems immediately...... __1.the maximum number of devices that can watch at a given a time over the same account should be at least increased to five ____2 the time taken to download a movie for offline viewing should be reduced

    You guys are messing me up, I've paid my MOBILE ONLY package yet when I'm trying to watch, it takes me to " upgrade" tab, I don't want to upgrade but to continue with the package I've agreed on. Please fix this mess or pay me back. I wanna watch I used to. Don't mess with me

    I can't renew my subscription. Even after putting in a new card. New card was confirmed but still saying declined every time I click to subscribe.

    I downloaded this so I can watch TV shows and movies I live in Canada (this is important) I got it and is said "this is not available in Canada" and I so mad this is the only good site if you have a good site to watch please tell me (make sure it works in Canada!) Thank you very much

    I have to reset my phone if I get a call during watching a show. It either plays the audio while no visual moves or it just has the circle thing until my phone makes me close the app. It only works well the first time I open it up for the day etc. Using huawei mate 20 lite

  92. Henning Kruger-avatar

    I like the app and content. What I feel you guys can improve is the highlight color over the items. It is way too light. I can barely see which show or movie is selected. Please add more Afrikaans kids content. Thank you. Be blessed.

    Great app. Just that some of the older, classic movies, are not available. Also, the playback is a bit shabby - can't view in full screen and there's no option to amend the aspect ratio. Other than that, a subblime app👍🏾

    Its got some good movies on it watch pinky pinky yesterday im using the 14 day free trial, only that i might not use it much in that time . Just don't like holding phone for hours when watching a movie, if it was on ps4 i would enjoy it more. Just hope my subcrition get cancelled before the billing date because theres no way for me to cancel it now

    Great shows. But the downloads only play when I have data, what's the point of downloading then if I still can't watch the shows offline.

    AndroidTV: Really disappointed about the bright synopsis (information) screen when selecting a show or movie. Bright yellow, white, pink, light blue etc background. And also small fonts that are often white on these backgrounds. Dark mode please.

    Love it so far. However I have two problems with the app, the BBC channel is not showing visualls and each time I go on the app it asks me to update the app. Kindly fix this.

    Well it seemed great at first but then it started having problems. This annoyed me every day I always watched but now I decided to rate it three stars I was thinking of rating it five but it gave me problems so can you fix this problem.

    It's basic really. You download shows and they disappear before you even get to watch them. Some video downloads on super high quality do this thing where everything is slow like its buffing. Great shows tho.
