Showmax has gone above and beyond with their promise to include more Kenyan content on their platform. Kenyan shows on the internet TV service include The Real Househelps of Kawangware, Auntie Boss, Vitimbi and the documentary The Flesh Business.

I have been a subscriber to the internet TV service Showmax for some months now and one of the things I love most is the Kenyan content. Some of the shows on Showmax can’t be found, on demand, anywhere else, so you can imagine how happy I was to run into them.

This October, they are adding even more Kenyan content for your viewing pleasure.
