Showmax adds live news streaming

Showmax has announced the addition of seven live news channels to its video streaming service.

The company said it was adding the content to allow subscribers to keep up with developments during the COVID-19 coronavirus lockdown.
The channels that will be added to the service include:

  • BBC World News;
  • SABC News;
  • Sky News;
  • CNN;
  • Newzroom Afrika;
  • Al Jazeera;
  • Euronews.
Awesome. As someone who had paid for a showmax subscription - this adds more value to the service. I understand its due to the times we live in but still. Hope it becomes standard and we see more value add.
DSTV Now says they have added the news channels for free for LG Smart TV. Although one can log into the app on an LG TV, the Live TV section does not work. I have logged an incident with DSTV and have escalated it 3 times over the last week, but nothing has changed.
Anyone else having problems connecting to the showmax website atm?
