Travel almost anywhere on the globe, and chances are that sooner or later you’ll hear a familiar South African accent. 
Catering to South Africa’s intrepid expats, ShowMax started supplying kykNET content to five countries in December 2015.
This was subsequently expanded to 28 countries. Based on the success of this service, ShowMax has now expanded the content catalogue to include TV shows and movies from Mzansi Magic, M-Net, Vuzu, as well as kykNET.
Costing US$ 8.99 per month, this service has the added benefit of featuring many popular shows within 24 hours of them airing in South Africa.
The ShowMax service featuring South African content is available in the following 28 countries popular with expats:
Andorra, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, San Marino, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States.
