    Showmax Pro with live sport launched

    Showmax Pro with live sport launched

    Yeah, I figured that out quite a while ago. What I am saying is that it used to be good quality content, now it's cheap local content, so throwing in "SuperSport" might be the only thing that will convince me to upgrade the service. I'm on the brink of cancelling

    Going for a walk during the lockdown should be fine - Minister

    Actually, my neighbourhood is normally full of walkers/joggers/dog-walkers - lots of active people. So in my suburb, it is a risk. Just this morning there were probably around 5 people passing each other on any given street, because they are active, and they are all at home.
