Showmax Pro has partnered with Telkom to launch data deals for Telkom mobile subscribers. The 30GB and 45GB data bundles from Telkom include a one-month subscription to stream Showmax Pro on mobile devices.

Showmax Pro is the new service available in Kenya that bundles the existing Showmax entertainment offering with music channels, news, and live sports streaming from SuperSport, including all Premier League, Serie A, and La Liga games as well as a wide range of live sports events like athletics, professional boxing, and the world’s biggest marathons.

The Showmax Pro Mobile and Telkom data bundles are available to new and returning Showmax subscribers on the Telkom network and include:

A 30GB data bundle + 1-month Showmax Pro Mobile subscription for KSh1500 to stream Showmax Pro Mobile for up to 10 hours per day on a mobile device with a 1GB daily allocation.

A 45GB data bundle + 1-month Showmax Pro Mobile subscription for KSh2000 to stream Showmax Pro for up to 15 hours per day, on a mobile device with a 1.5GB daily allocation.

These offers are exclusively available to Telkom customers by dialing *544# via one’s mobile, or via the Telkom app.

The partnership between Showmax Pro Mobile and Telkom is a natural fit for us, as it in line with our new strategic focus areas that we announced last month. This partnership will enable Telkom to give more value to our customers, addressing a growing demand in content solutions, ” says Steve OKEYO, the Managing Director of Telkom’s Consumer Division.

When subscribers stream on mobile devices and use Showmax’s bandwidth capping feature, Showmax uses as little as 100MB per hour of streaming. Read more about bandwidth capping »
