So Many people have been asking me what they could do if they don’t have a DSTV account or a DSTV decoder to watch Live Football, I think I have got a solution for them. Today, we’re talking about Showmax.

What Is Showmax?
Showmax is owned by Multichoice, which also owns DSTV. Multichoice basically took some live sports channels (SuperSport) and then some other shows and movies, and put them all in an app and called it Showmax. You can now watch live Premier League games, live Champions League games, La Liga games, Serie A games, and UEFA Conference League games on Showmax.
How To Watch Live Football On Your Device Using Showmax
Watching Live Football on Showmax might be quite difficult, especially when you are trying to set it up for the first time. I’m going to give you a step-by-step guide on how you can do that.
Go to the Google Play store or Apple app store.
Search for Showmax using the search bar.
Install the Shwomax app once it appears.
After the installation is successful, open the app.
Create an account using Your Email address.
After Creating an account, it takes you to the next page, which is where you select your plans.
We have all devices and mobile devices. Mobile devices are just for your phone and your tablet. All devices include your phone, your tablet your laptop your smart tv.
So, under each main category, there are subcategories or plans. For all devices, we have Showmax and Showmax Pro. And then, for mobile devices, we have Showmax Mobile and Showmax Pro Mobile. If you want to watch live sports, that’s Premier League games, Shout Disney games, and all that, you have to go with the Pro. Whether you’re going for all devices or just mobile devices, you have to go with the Pro.
Difference Between Showmax All Devices & Mobile Devices Plan
If you’re trying to pick between going with all devices or just mobile devices, here are some differences to help you make a better decision.
Mobile Devices: With the mobile devices plan, you can only watch on your phone and your tablet, as I mentioned earlier. You can also only have one stream and your account registered to just one device.
All Devices: But if you’re going with the all-devices plan, you get two streams at the same time as well as five registered devices. Also, the max streaming quality on mobile would be 720p, but on all devices, it’s going to be 1080p. The all-devices plan is also more expensive.
How Much is Showmax Subscription In Nigeria?
Showmax Subscription costs N6,300 for the all-devices plan, while the mobile devices plan goes For N3,200. Once you select your plan, you can then choose your form of payment, and that’s it.
You can now watch your Premier League games and Champions League games on your mobile device or TV.
it’s not all rosy though, there are some disadvantages too, like if you go with the mobile devices package, the max streaming quality is 720p. It’s good enough, but I guess if you want a higher resolution, you have to pay more.
There might also be a problem with your mobile network. That has nothing to do with Showmax, that’s really on your mobile network. You have to make sure you have a steady internet connection in order to avoid buffering from affecting your stream flow. But aside from that, I think it’s pretty good.
Showmax is going to help you save money because, somebody like me doesn’t watch all the channels that DSTV, just majorly sports. So, if you’re like me, then it’s going to be beneficial to you.
