Netflix Mobile vs Showmax Mobile — The best cheap streaming service in South Africa

International streaming giant Netflix is taking on MultiChoice's Showmax with its own affordable subscription for mobile devices in South Africa.

Netflix officially launched its mobile-only plan to the general public last week, following months of testing two possible options for introduction into the market.

The company said it considers Sub-Saharan Africa to be "mobile-first", as many people in this region are using mobile devices for accessing online entertainment.

"South African people already watch two times more Netflix on smartphones compared to the rest of the world," Netflix stated. "This is why it was a priority for us to bring the mobile plan here."
