ShowMax’s streaming video service is now available on the DStv Explora decoder, following its release on Apple TV, AirPlay, and Chromecast.
“For Explora owners this is a risk-free proposition – binge entire box sets from the very beginning without having to buy any new equipment,” said Barron Ernst, Chief Product Officer of ShowMax.
To access ShowMax on an Explora, the decoder needs to be connected to the Internet.
ShowMax will be added to all active DStv Exploras in South Africa in a phased roll-out starting on 13 June.
The automatic Explora software update process should be completed over the course of the next few days, said ShowMax.
To access ShowMax once the software update has taken place, press the blue DStv button, scroll to Watch Now, and select ShowMax.
A ShowMax subscription is needed to access the service. Existing ShowMax customers can log in using their email address and password.
New customers will need to sign up for ShowMax via its website.
Customers paying for DStv via debit order will be able to pay for ShowMax through their DStv account.
