Looks interesting.
Can't you rather make an addon for DSTV Now - we need the sport :D

Any contingency if ShowMax asks you to take it down?

I have links to the source code and addon.zip on my blog post.
So people can easily fork it if need be.

After looking at Showmax's source code, I hope they wouldn't mind.
They seem to be quite up with technology and lettings users watch their content easily.

Also, I read this Facebook post as them wanting one (or working on one themselves):

@rpm

Can you fix up this thread so I'm the owner?
It appears my old account was lost when the forums were switched.
I had just created it (and this thread) a day before the switch.

Of course Naspers has a finger in the Denuvo pie, I don't know why I'm even surprised at all.

Hi All,

I have updated my post about this add-on (that has been removed).
https://www.matthuisman.nz/2018/12/showmax-kodi-add-on.html

It now tells you how you can check the MD5 checksum of the add-on.
Therefore making sure your getting the original non-modified version.

This should help safe-guard against someone adding nasty stuff to it (steal info, crpyto mine etc) and then re-distributing it.

Cheers,
Matt
