    This used to be a good app but not anymore. I downloaded it on my smart TV but now it keeps loading. I have deleted and downloaded it again still no luck, signed out and in still no difference. Its even the same on my phone and it says the app has stopped working. Don't tell me to try the live chat for assistance because they take ages to reply, same with the customer care email. This is a very expensive inconvenience, we can't be paying subs for a below standard service. Please fix your things.

    app Lately the response time on Showmax has become an issue. It works perfectly fine on my phone but on my laptop it's a problem. I had to created another profile just to get it to work. Right now as we speak I'm experiencing the same problem with my second profile I click on what I want to watch and it takes forever to play

    shows Worst streaming app I ever paid subscription for. I have both Netflix premium and Amazon prime video premium and decided to try this out. Even for my over 120Mbps 4G speed I keep getting "unable to connect, check your Internet connection..." I am never renewing my subscription if it keeps happening. Becuase I most certainly dont have Internet connection issues

    movies Do not use if you enjoy binge watching. When you use the app for a long period of time to binge watch something it will eventually freeze and won't play the video and an error mesage will show up on your screen, then you have to stop using it for a while before it works again.

  5. Sports Newz-avatar

    pro One thing I hate about showmax is that when you watch a movie or series the video size is small. You can't stretch the screen size. Some phone have a big inch screen. That's why I do not use this app

  6. Gerhard L-avatar

    .com/link enter code AndroidTV: Really disappointed about the bright synopsis (information) screen when selecting a show or movie. Bright yellow, white, pink, light blue etc background. Small thumbnails, small fonts and Continue watching have no show names just episode numbers. Dark mode please.

    free trial The app suddenly freezes when you minimize to do another task on your phone, such that you have to restart the phone before you can use the app again. This app doesn't worth the subscription paid for.

    nigeria Watching a movies and series on showmax is great, with good video quality. The only problem is you guys "Showmax " must upgrade the video sizes because watching 👀 on a 6 inh phone is orait but on a 6,7-6,9 inh phone the video size doesn't stretch . Hope you guys can fix that problem.

    in usa First off, this app does not give refunds and it doesn't support all the tvs , when you play the series it just freezes. I sent and email to showmax and I've not gotten any reply yet I've always wanted to try showmax but it let me down.

    Very bad as a first time user. If its not 'connection error its too much ad's' that i can't even skip because the skip key is not responding. I'm very disappointed with the app

    I'm not one to watch TV shows daily due to other commitments but thanks to this App I'm able to binge watch at my convinience . I also love that they also add latest movies quicker than other streaming services yet subscription is cheaper.

    Arrrgggg. 🤬😬😬😬😬😬😬😈 Why the heck does it freeze soooo daaamn much. Its soo bloody annoying. This app has been around for awhile problems like this shouldn't exit. Don't even get me started with the unable to initiate with decoder nonscence when I have a perfect WiFi signal. 😬🙄

    I can't count the number of times I've had to restart my phone in the past few days to get this app to work. This is the worst streaming app I've used. Even DSTV Now isn't this bad. Errors upon errors, app not responding, initiation blah blah, continously loading without playing unless phone is restarted. This app is so buggy. Disappointing.

  20. Kelebogile Phiri-avatar

    Kelebogile Phiri


    Very good, especially in consuming data. It consumes less, considering I am streaming videos. The video quality is also very good. The app also buffers less than other video apps. Overall I am very impressed. The only downside is their content. I wish they could have more movies and series. I searched for my favourite series The Big Bang Theory and I couldnt find it.

    I downloaded and subscribed for the mobile version, and it keeps showing me "Your device appears to be rooted, playback has been disabled" I couldn't watch on the app. I am using Samsung Galaxy S8.

    i downloaded this app and it took all my data,i wanted this particular series,you guys gave the date that it will expire after you just delete all my downloads,I had to sacrifice my sleep to get this done and all in vain too i don't usually do this but i'm really angry right now so please bring my series to me safe and sound

    After the update..... I cannot use the app on my phone any more. It just hangs. I have done all the tech support, it is not my phone. This only started after the update.

    I want to support this app. It has a balance in it's offering. But the Champions league restricted to SA subscribers is a no no for me. You get 3 stars only.

    This is the best showmax ever but there are no season 5,6 and 7 it must have all seasons so this app is great but it must have lots...and lots of season's good bye

    In one of the reviews you said the issue with downloads would be resolved. I have been trying to download one episode for 3 days. My data is finishing but there isn't even any progress or percentage increase in how much of the episode I have downloaded. The layout is not very pleasant and is very clunky. I really just want to download a show and watch it when I have time on the road.

  32. Dixon G-avatar

    Dixon G


    The fact that you can't upgrade and just top up on your current subscription but have to pay for an entire new package if you want to upgrade is truly disappointing, it's just a simple API application that a company like DSTV should easily implement. A 1 star from me, disappointed!

    Great content but the app really sucks! Downloads are very slow and most times I can't download at all. Sometimes downloaded content just dissapears or it will give me an error when I'm trying to play until it reach expiry date. The customer service team is also not helpful at all--I have reported these issues several times and all they ever do is to ask for my email address and tell me to log out, uninstall, clear cache and delete some items on my phone for space - this never works!.

  36. Zinhle Zulu-avatar

    Zinhle Zulu


    Showmax app is the worst!!. If it's not uninstalling itself, it just stops working. I am so fed up that Everytime I want to watch something, the app is gone and I have to redownload. I have downloaded the app I don't know how many times since subscribing and you lose everything you had downloaded when reinstalling! What kind is this??? Waste of money and data. Don't bother yourself!!!!

  37. Sydney Brand-avatar

    The app is slow and buggy. Downloads are a downright pain in the backside. Besides taking forever, it keeps reducing my max downloads every time I download - I've never been able to do more than 23. I also don't have the option of downloading to my SD card. Downloads become broken with DRM, AND and CND errors. The app also needs a dark or night mode as the glaring white screen is off putting. Content wise, your options are very limited if you're not into local movies or series.

  38. Ere-ebimo Ala-avatar

    Ere-ebimo Ala


    Showmax is a good platform for series, movies and sports. But what makes it more exciting is because Nengi Rebecca Hampson recommends it. When Nengi says something is good, it is actually good.

    Downloads take forever to download then there is an issue with the video player if you pause more than 3x the video will freeze to the extent you just hear audio only then it will also interfere with your other apps display media so that they don't operate normally. The fact that I have to restart my phone for it to start working properly sucks. Please fix the bug

  41. Olivia oluomachi-avatar

    Olivia oluomachi


    Well ! My old phones download are stoping me from downloading in the new one because of the numbers of download supposed to be made They idea of monthly payments and still use data for download is off ,like too high and not good .if you want monthly payments fine but make sure it is mobile data free 'you can't have them both. Plus why do I have to spend so much only for my downloads to disappear in 30 days which is now 14 days in my new phone. I love show max app but you _ tube is better.

  42. Connor Burns-avatar

    Connor Burns


    The app feels like it is very very basic with alot of features lacking that are found in almost every app today! I find it hard to navigate and not user friendly. It is hard to find your own watch list and if you are casting from your phone to a TV the videos will not autoplay even if you try turn the feature off and on in settings! I'd like to see the over all user experience improved aswell as a possible dark mode added!

  43. Zainab Godwin-avatar

    Zainab Godwin


    It started out good at first, but now,its just terrible! After downloading some series , I can't watch except I live stream which consumes data, battery and wastes time. I have deleted 1 Gig worth of data on downloaded series only to delete them because they won't play! Live streaming wastes time and consumes battery life...Showmax fix it!

    I registered mostly for the HBO content that I can't get on Netflix. Though I mostly use it on the PC thought I'd check the app as well. I must admit there were a number of the ratings for the app that sort of scared me up. But I downloaded it for myself and I guess it's quite good on my end. Kudos. Maybe sort the complaints.

    The app does not download, downloads are unsuccessful due to an error message : CDN not reachable. Also I've been using a single device to access shows, however the app has blocked me from watching shows because of a maximum limit of devices being reached. So that means I've paid for something I cannot use, that's gibberish.

    Its only been 4 days but I've noticed a few things. I recently moved from Netflix and I'm finding that showmax isnt as easy to use. If you could make it user friendly, make it so i dont have to go search for the series I'm watching every time an episodes ends, make it easier to delete, compress downloading size and just make the display a lil better. Otherwise great app

    I rate it 0 stars. I downloaded the app for a 14 day free trial and has never worked. Once you sign up and click the show, it will ask you to upgrade subscription. Furthermore when you upgrade it will still not play or recognise your devices. Everytime you enter your VISA card they charge 10cents per attemept. (not much but your back charges will be around 3.50 for those small transactions).. the chat assistant is never active. I SENT AN EMAIL 7DAYS AGO, NOT EVEN 1 RESPONSE. Its a bad app

  53. Zach Scheepers-avatar

    I am not impressed. Cant find anyway to get support. After about 2 minutes I logged into showmax on my smart tv, everything freezes up and it exits out. Then nothing works. Not Netflix, nothing. No error codes and no contact numbers. Hopefully now, after this review someone will be able to sort this out.

    This app is frustrating to say the least, when you pause, it freezes dispite the fact that you have downloaded content. When you download content to watch offline. It gives you the expiration which is weeks ahead but the a day later the content expires. What is the point of regularly updating an app that doesn't improve.

    I remove downloads from the 'downloads' folder, yet it still reflects under the 'My account' downloads section. Customer service is the worst and rude when I reached out for assistance on this matter. Gives advice that does not work (force stop the app, restart phone, sign in and out) or they delete items that should not be deleted and tell you that they did you a favor by deleting it, because you don't want to delete it.

  58. Ryan Tonkin-avatar

    Ryan Tonkin


    The showmax app running on Android TV is really buggy. Every so often it throws the error AND1101, which is bogus because there is nothing wrong with the internet connection. Netflix will stream for hours never throwing such an error. And if I exit the app and re enter it is fine again. When are you going to roll out a fix for this bug?

    Experience here BAD. Downloaded, viewed few episodes and then that was all. Was initially excited we now have a replacement for Netflix which would be affordable but little did I know it's just child's play. Other episodes requested to be downloaded again. Really sucks cos it's not downloading again! Wasted my data and time. Not recommended 🙁

    Some comments here have been discouraging me from downloading this app but I decided to take the bull by the horn and boom💥 showmax delivered exactly what I needed. Getting the best even on the 14 days free trial period. Livestreaming bbnaija is the best of it all to me. Strongly recommended. Thank you team showmax.

    I honestly liked showmax until I downloaded it on my phone, every time I watch something the sound is good but the video doesn't work my phone just goes black while the sound of the show is working. I had higher expectations for this app. I enjoy Netflix more, it gives me no problems.

  63. Nightcore Otez-avatar

    Nightcore Otez


    I really like/enjoy this app but it doesn't have all of the things I actually want to watch as well as some of the newer movie that should already be on here. I would recommend this app if you want to watch Movies/Series but I would also say that it might be a good idea to watch on Netflix because they have a wider range of movies and series to watch.

    This is one of the worst streaming app's. If I try downloading a show that takes 100mn it actually downloads it as a 300mb file sometimes the app freezes my phone and I have to restart my phone even when you do download something it will just say can't access downloads this app is a waste of time and data. Just get Netflix at least they know how to handle a app and you get more first the same price.

  66. saheed oladosu-avatar

    One of the main draw to downloading your app was my ability to control the data at 100MB/hr. The minimum data usage after the latest update is 300MB/hr. You need to understand your market. A suggestion will be to have a minimum (100MB/hr), medium (300MB/hr) and maximum (unlimited data) Fix up.

    Future Development can you please add live soccer game (home language) commentary "Sesotho and Isizulu" this feature is already available on DStv decoder just add it to Showmax Pro subscription just like {subtitle feature} we must be able to activate it manually, if Showmax decide to bring 🏉 to Showmax apply same technic "IsiXhosa and Afrikaans" commentary Make sure we get to feel like King's and Queens cater for us so that we can all enjoy Showmax Pro in our home language

    What a waste of my money, I have a Huawei p30 lite and the is audio with no visual, I have downloaded the app and paid so I basically just through my money down the drain. I have sent through an email stating what the issue I'm having is and I'm always informed to delete the app and download again. Nothing helps.

    Firstly the app keeps on crashing after just a few seconds of opening, it's impossible to watch anything and secondly if you closed a show halfway through and want to resume watching later it starts from the beginning and you then have to search for the place you stopped watching.

    I have installed this app on my phone .Paid by Debit order passed x2 months.Showmax cancelled my subscription without my consent. I am unable to get back unto the app.I have been trying for days. The worst service ever!!Even paid again as they asked.No activation.Spoken to consultants on the app. No Showmax people! It is literally now 29th August I am still not allowed access until I pay R99 again.

    Poor rating because of the amount of time it takes to download content whether you download good or normal quality. 1 movie takes days or even a week to download whether via wifi or data network...always saying "waiting for retry" very disappointing 👎...Fix the bugs that are slowing down the downloads

    A really good app, but adventure time only goes to season 4 and other cartoons i like are not complete. Show max focuses too much on "adult" series and animation. Netflix has allt of cartoons like anime but, you are the only people with adventure time. Really sad, i hope to see more cartoons

    If I don't finish watching a show, instead of starting where I left off, it takes me back 2 the start of that show. It really is irritating having 2 find where I left off & the episode. Sometimes it even takes me back 2 episodes & I really m beyond irritated & 4 that I had 2 change my 2* rating 2 1.

    I should have read the reviews before subscribing. All bad reviews nje. The app Was ok at first, until my deleted downloads still appear under my account, it says I have 25 downloads. I can't download anymore I can only stream and that sucks. Not to mention the customer care is a nightmare. If only there was an option for zero star.

    Showmax it's a good app but I'm disappointed due to the fact that it's not showing live matches as the developer claimed, and I subscribed to "showmax Pro" because of live matches. I could not watch Juventus vs Lyon UCL match on 07/08/2020. Hence one star

    Maago Senaya Showmax is the worst app I have ever known in my life I always see the advert thinking it is a good app but not knowing it is an app that consumes data whoever sees my review please do not download show max they are just consuming your data.

    The app can be slow at times but it does work if you're into SA content. However, I was charged twice this month, in a space of 3 days I've been charged 3 times. That's unacceptable because it takes 7-14 working days to reverse this.

    It is a good app. However, very often I start casting and when I play the movie nothing shows on the TV screen or it only plays on the mobile screen? Why is this?

    I've been losing so much data because my downloads don't play and i have to delete and download again. How do I cancel my subscription no entertainment is worth this much trouble. I have 10 downloads queuing and 5 of them say i have reached my maximum 25 active download across devices. I'm the only one downloading

    App doesn't provide a pop up option so you can do something else while continuing to watch. Not able to lock the screen which is a bummer. And if tiu change to TV setting its virtually impossible to change back I had to uninstall. Pretty mhe phone app not bad for laptop or TV.

    I have a good WiFi connection backed up by mobile data which makes streaming in HD on other apps very fast. However, on ShowMax the videos lose quality. Most of the time I feel like I'm watching 360p videos instead of the 720p.

    This app is joke. Dont waste your time, they've clearly bitten more than they can chew. I'm a Netflix fan and rightfully so because what a joke of an app this is, freezes every time, even with downloaded content. Wow very disappointing. Then you report an issue and they give you same meaningless empty "Sorry" but nothing gets done for improvement...It's cheap and you get exactly that.

  91. Tariro Mazhetese-avatar

    Great selection of content but streaming is constantly buffering and downloads are super slow. You cannot download whilst watching something else on the app and you cannot download whilst doing something else on your phone. Very frustrating.

    Only plays trailer, shows a black screen with no audio but just time, when i try watching. Am using android TV. i am subscribed to the correct package.

    Downloading is easy and convenient. It would be helpful if it was possible to start watching something before the download finished. Sometimes it downloads 100% but then gets stuck and you still can't watch it offline.

    So I recently subscribed for the showmax Pro mobile and I find it annoying that the sports I paid for aren't being showed.. A number of times the stations are on a different channel and I end up losing out.. It feels neglected. Please do better 😔😔

    The main reason I subscribed is football. But it seems I can't watch the Champions League. So, this will be my last subscription. If you're downloading Showmax to watch football, look for something else because you won't get to enjoy the UCL.

    Thou the app is OK but the live streaming of the football game delays for over 1 to 2 minutes. It's really bad and needs to be fix. I was watching EPL today and the whole game was over 2 minutes delayed.

    Absolutely terrible experience I tried downloading a movie it will stay queued for 3hours and not download then I uninstalled it and downloaded it again and when I tried downloading a movie the 2nd time it said something about cant download to root directory and in brackets (AND1317) So Showmax Please pull your socks up and make the app useable and have a wonderful day.

    Affordable access to good shows, however sometimes downloads don't play and disappear after you've downloaded them. Contacting support doesn't help much cos they'll respond but not with something solid and useful. Your data is gone that time.

    Very disappointing app. I've only been able to play 2 shows, once I got to my 3rd show the app started to act up. It goes blank, the app suddenly goes off. The app is not responding. Worst streaming app indeed.

    If anyone can help me it would be great, but this app doesn't want to work on my phone everything I try only gives me a black screen and sounds play but I can't watch it. I have enough audio books so I would like it if the video actually plays any help would be appreciated.

    Yea this app is amazing and good but when it comes to deleting the recently watched section I can't be able to delete any of the movies or series ....why ????🤔🤔🤔 That's the only issue I have with this app

  110. Tien-avatar



    App is easy enough to use. However the lack of autoplay for next episodes, as well as no auto rewind on rewatch is a big problem, and makes operating the app very tedious if you have kids that watch the same programs on repeat.

    Its great. Watch tv shows and movies. I dont use data as i am on wifi . Search the movie or series and watch it.had a small problem with the one movie. Freezed. But think that was the wifi conection.

  112. Radioactive-avatar



    The app has good contents but you need to add features like dark mode, upgrade the player like making people control screen resolution, screen lock and improve the app interface like Netflix cause every update must bring feature(s)
