What is Showmax, and how can I watch it?

Showmax is an online video-on-demand subscription service, initially launched in South Africa. Providing a mix of Hollywood, British and hit African content, its range of viewing is something quite different from any other streaming service around the world.

Now available in several regions, you can watch everything and anything from movies, shows, kids programs, and more.

Showmax offers viewers over 30,000 episodes of TV shows, and if you’d like to watch them on the go? Well, they offer a download service that allows you to pull in up to 25 shows for offline viewing. Not only that, they offer a special rate for their mobile-only service.

There are plenty of the shows you’d expect to see from the major US and British producers, but what makes Showmax unique is the South African content that no other service specializes in. Check out the most popular South African series on offer; perhaps Die Byl, Hard to Get, Boer Sock ‘n Vrou, or Getroud Met Rugby are just what you’ve been looking for?

With Showmax airing different catalogues in different locations, you might not have access to the shows and movies you want—but now, with StreamLocator, nothing is off-limits.

How can I watch Showmax with StreamLocator?

There’s so much unique and unusual viewing available on Showmax; it’s no surprise that so many people are looking for a way to access their shows from countries not already included in their expansive network.

If you’re not in one of their regions, don’t panic! StreamLocator provides you with a virtual UK location to unlock the service. That’s right, and with Showmax servers believing you’re in the UK, you get access to all of the shows you can’t wait to watch.

No complicated settings or software installation required

We like to think of ourselves as the zero effort service. Too many times, we hear that people want to connect to overseas services but can’t because their bypass method keeps dropping the connection or is too difficult to set up.

That’s where we excel. With StreamLocator, accessing international streams is easy. There isn’t any software to install, for starters. We won’t ask you to set up advanced DNS profiles either. Our system works with your WiFi router, so all of your Internet-enabled gadgets are automatically included.

Once our smart hub is in place, all of your devices are provided with virtual locations wherever they need to appear. That includes Chromecast, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, iOS and Android phones and tablets, and even your Mac and PC.

Even better, once your account is activated, our hub is always on. It doesn’t affect Internet speeds, and it keeps working in the background, creating connections as and when you need them.

Oh, and those connections? You can have as many as you want. VPN and Smart DNS services limit users to one or two. Even the most generous will only let you have five at a time. With StreamLocator, your connections are unlimited. Everyone in your household can connect to a different service in a different location, and we’ll take care of every one of them. No problem!

How to watch Showmax from outside the United Kingdom

If you’re outside the UK, then you need to make the Showmax servers think you’re where they need you to be to log into their service. StreamLocator provides you with a virtual UK location that does just that. With their servers seeing the correct region, all of their shows are at your command.

Services like Showmax use what’s called geo-location technology to track the position of its users. If it sees someone trying to access the service outside an area they need to be in, then they’ll be blocked or rerouted to an appropriate website.

To get around geo-location blocks, VPN and Smart DNS methods have been used for years as the standard options and solutions. But now, with StreamLocator’s advanced workaround system, there’s a much better way to access your favourite TV shows.

How to register for Showmax from outside the UK

With your virtual UK location in place, registering for Showmax is straightforward. They accept various payment methods, including PayPal, so activating a subscription shouldn’t be a challenge, wherever you are.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch Showmax from outside the United Kingdom?

As long as you can provide a virtual UK location for the Showmax servers, it doesn’t matter how you do it. VPN and Smart DNS have been the acceptable methods over the past decade, but now they’re becoming less reliable, as the streaming services find them far easier to spot and block.

StreamLocator is a smart step ahead. We use a selection of workaround technologies, so whichever one is the best for that service, that’s the one we choose—and without you even knowing it’s happening. Our smart hub creates seamless connections every time, without any of the fuss.

How to unblock Showmax UK

Subscribe to StreamLocator, and we’ll send you your own smart hub straight away. Plug it into your WiFi router, and you’re halfway there. All you need to do then is to activate your account, and a new location will appear in your WiFi list. Switch your devices over to the new STREAMLOCATOR network and let your new smart hub take care of the rest.

It’s that easy. There’s no choosing countries, no remembering to turn on an app, no dropped connections—and no hassle.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch Showmax for free?

Sadly, you’ll still have to cover the Showmax subscription, but at least you won’t have to worry about connecting to their service, we’ve got that part covered for you.
