Streaming on your mobile device is the simplest and best way to keep up with your favourite series, movies and live sport - but of course, you’re looking to do this in the most cost-effective way possible. Platforms like Showmax have become more innovative with mobile-only offerings that allow you to watch the full catalogue of shows on one mobile device, such as your smartphone.
1. Use bandwidth capping to use less data
Showmax’s bandwidth capping feature allows you to control how much data is used while streaming and sets limits that will use as little as 100MB. You will find it under Settings.
2. Download on mobile devices and watch offline
Showmax gives you the option to download any show or movie on Wi-Fi and watch offline on smartphones or tablets later – no data needed.
3. Reduce download quality to save data
If you have to use your mobile data to download shows, toggle the download quality settings to save data. The lower the quality you select, the less data you will use.
4. Use free Wi-Fi hotspots
The best way to save data is to use no data. Stream or download your shows while you’re on your lunch break at work or when you’re in a coffee shop that offers free Wi-Fi.
Showmax is accessible on smartphones, smart TVs, laptops and tablets. Pricing starts at R49, available from www.showmax.com.
