How to enjoy Showmax with Safaricom video bundles


So, you’ve signed up for Showmax but you only get to use it to stream or download content when you have Wi-Fi. If you’re wondering how to take your favourite TV shows with you wherever you go without having to incur expensive data costs when you stream, then this unique data bundle service from Safaricom might interest you. The video bundle allows you to access video streaming services, currently exclusive to Showmax, at a cost that is lower than regular bundles.

The bundles offered are as follows:

  • 7.5GB for Ksh. 1 699
  • 15GB for Ksh. 3 199
  • 30GB for Ksh. 5 999
  • 60GB for Ksh. 9 999

How to buy the bundles

  • Dial *422# on your Safaricom line
  • Select option 3 (Video only data bundles)
  • Select the data bundle you want to buy

The bundles are valid for 30 days and they roll over if you buy another bundle before your current bundle expires.

Showmax comes in two packages: Showmax Select for Kshs 330 per month, and Showmax Premium for Kshs 880 per month.

Use M-pesa to pay for Showmax Select, and choose credit card, cheque card, PayPal or M-pesa to pay for Showmax Premium.
