MultiChoice Uganda has announced that Showmax mobile subscribers in Uganda will pay UGX 11,499 a month for access to the full Showmax catalogue on a single mobile device. This is an almost 25% reduction on the previous price point of UGX 15,200.
Speaking about the price reduction, Colin Asiimwe, Head of Marketing, MultiChoice Uganda, says, “We know that consumers are under pressure at the moment and we believe this change will be appreciated by our mobile customers as will the decision not to increase any of our other prices. We look forward to more Ugandans enjoying our proudly African stories.”
So far this year, MultiChoice’s streaming platform has already released four Showmax Originals: the follow-up to the very popular Tali’s Wedding Diary: Tali’s Baby Diary; the small-town psychological thriller DAM; the Kenyan police procedural Crime and Justice, a co-production with CANAL+; and reality series I Am LAYCON, Nigeria’s first Showmax Original, featuring Big Brother Naija Season 5 winner, Lekan Agbeleshe aka Laycon.
Other Showmax Originals on the way in 2021 include the Cape Flats neo-noir murder mystery Skemerdans; a second co-production with CANAL+, Blood Psalms, an epic series based on ancient African mythology; and its first international reality TV series format, Temptation Island South Africa.
The Showmax mobile plan is designed for individuals who only watch on a mobile device like a phone or tablet.
Meanwhile, the standard Showmax plan remains UGX 30,300, Showmax Pro remains UGX 67,200 and Showmax Pro mobile remains UGX 33,600 per month.
