Showmax on DStv Compact Plus

On Premium, Showmax is 100 percent free. This is because any payments that may come from their use of Showmax is part of their subscription. But it is not so for users on other packages, like Compact Plus. 

DStv Compact Plus users will only have to pay R49 to have Showmax. As such, the total cost of using Showmax (R49) and a Compact Plus subscription (R549) is R598.

This appears to be a good deal because Showmax subscriptions go for R99 per month. This means that as long as you are a DStv Compact Plus subscriber, you get to save R50 on all Showmax subscriptions.

What’s more? You can watch Showmax from anywhere as long as you have a device that can connect to the internet.

Also, if you have the DStv Explora, you can start streaming Showmax movies and kids’ series directly on your big TV screen. This is because your Explora has internet connection capabilities of up to 10 Mbps.

  1. I cancelled my Stay Essential this month. May I now subscribe to DSTV Compact Plus including the Internet connection, please?
    I already have a Fibre connection through NETSTREAM.
    Please advise urgently.
    Regards,

    1. Hi, Bob! You can subscribe to Compact Plus, no problems with that. If you already have internet with NETSTREAM, you can always connect your DStv decoder to the internet using an ethernet cable or a Wifi connector.

      1. Hi, Pebetse. Use the MyDStv app or contact a DStv agent. If you have the time, you can walk into a DStv store near you to get it done. Be sure you take your IUC number with you when going to perform downgrades.

  2. Hi there, is the list of channels on Compact plus the latest as i want to change from Premium bouquet due to financial situation

  3. Hi,
    I want to change from Premium to Compact Plus, will this have an impact on the number of devices that can be linked? On Premium I can link 4 devices (or supposed to).

  4. Hi, I want to downgrade to compact plus and need to know the following:

    Can I still use dual viewing?
    Do I still use the same decoder?
    Do I have Catch Up?
    Can I still record for later viewing?

    1. Hi, Yvonne. You’re free to downgrade to Compact Plus. You’ll still have dual viewing, Catch up and recording on the same decoder. No need to get a new decoder. The only thing to note is that you’ll have to pay the fees for Extra View (if you are connecting more than one decoder at the same time), and PVR Access.

    1. Hi, Stacy. Normally, you can only add channels using the Movies add-on feature. This feature will allow you to add Mnet movies 1 and 2 to your sub. If you want to add just one channel (maybe outside the two movie channels listed), you’ll need to contact DStv to see if that will work. The price for the Movies Add-on feature is R99 per month.
