Can you remember the last time that you sat on your couch with a tub of ice cream watching your favourite movie or series without your husband screaming for something or your toddler pulling you up to find naked Barbie’s missing shoe?
Well… I can’t. Every time I sit to watch something on TV, I get disturbed by reality…
In the Vijendranath household, there are 3 people fighting to watch something on TV. My daughter wants to watch SpongeBob Square Pants, my husband wants to watch Friends and mom wants to catch up on Vampire Diaries (Yes… I can’t get enough of Damon, especially those eyes).
My days are filled with dirty diapers and tantrums. I don’t hate it but I do enjoy my “me-time”. I love relaxing on my couch with a cup of tea while I catch up on my favourite series or movies. Unfortunately, this only happens when the kids are sleeping or when Kitana is playing with her toys.
But now, thanks to ShowMax, Kitana and I can both watch our programmes simultaneously and we don’t have to fight over the TV anymore.
It’s a video on demand service that launched in August 2015 and is owned by Naspers. The service offers viewers the opportunity to stream over 12 000 hours of content (crazy right?), ranging from the best movies and series, talk shows, documentaries and local programming.
1. I can schedule my viewing around my children’s sleep schedule.
I can plan my viewing by saving my favourites on a “Watchlist”.
2. No commercials mean uninterrupted Grey’s Anatomy.
Don’t you hate when an important scene comes up but then you get interrupted by an ad break? Now I can watch an entire series without adverts in between.
3. 7 Day trial option
I could sign up for a 7-day free trial first to check out how ShowMax works and what content is available.
Please Note: You will need to add your credit card details when you sign up. If you decide to cancel your subscription within your 7-day free trial, you will not be charged. If you paid using your PayPal account and cancel within the 7-day free trial, you will be refunded.
4. I can watch Big Bang Theory anytime anywhere.
I love that I’m not restricted to one room. I can watch my favourite series or movies on my phone, tablet or laptop as long as I have an internet connection. ShowMax suggests a 4MBps line and up or an uncapped line.
5. Affordable so mom can spend more money on shoes.
I can watch up to 20 000 episodes and movies for only R99 a month!
6. Simultaneous logins
I can log in on 2 devices at the same time.
7. Raw content
I can watch the movies/series without any censorship.
8. High Definition (HD) to see Jon Snow’s abs clearer.
9. Mom gets to watch the older movies like Dirty Dancing.
I can watch the oldies with hubby and rekindle the romance. 😉
10. Dedicated shows for kids.
Kitana can watch the same cartoon over and over again without me getting annoyed.
Even celeb mom Anele Mdoda understands what I’m talking about…
ShowMax brings you loads of local content and the best of International series (Hollywood and British).
This December you can binge watch popular series like Breaking Bad and True blood OR watch older movies like PS: I Love You, G.I. Jane, The Prince and Me.
The price is right and the shows are perfect for this mom. 😉
