ShowMax has added the ability to download shows and movies to watch later to its app for the iPhone and iPad.

This feature is aimed at addressing one of the major hurdles facing South African consumers: the cost and availability of Internet connectivity.

“Not everyone has fast Internet access throughout the day or can afford to stream using a mobile connection,” said ShowMax South Africa General Manager John Kotsaftis.

“The beauty of this new download feature is that as long as you’re connected at some point, perhaps using a public Wi-Fi hotspot, at work, or a night-time mobile data bundle, then you can still use ShowMax to get shows and movies.”

The feature was added to Android devices in December 2015.

Up to a combined total of 25 TV shows and movies can be downloaded using the ShowMax app on tablets and smartphones.

Content stored on these devices is available for up to 30 days, and once viewing of a particular show or movie has started, the user has a 48-hour window to finish watching it.

Content can be downloaded more than once.
