The launch means that DStv Premium subscribers can now enjoy the best streaming international series and movies via Showmax at no extra cost.
Beginning February 9, 2021, all DStv Premium customers can add Showmax to their monthly bill at no extra cost.
MultiChoice Zambia Chief Customer Officer Leah Kooma said, “We launched Showmax Add to Bill in response to our customers’ changing consumption patterns as a result of video entertainment services increasingly moving online. As an ICT anchor within Zambia, it’s only fitting that we maintain pace with these trends and provide greater access to our existing online entertainment offering. Showmax Add to Bill now makes it easier for DStv subscribers to access this service.”
