Africa’s video-on-demand service, Showmax announced it will be launching a new extension of its platform called Showmax Pro.

The service is also confirmed to launch in South Africa as part of the rollout, however, a specific launch date has yet to be confirmed but the entire process is expected to be completed within 6-8 weeks with coverage across sub-Saharan Africa.

According to Multichoice, Showmax Pro will feature all Premier League, Serie A, La Liga, and PSL games as well as a wide range of live sports events including IAAF Athletics, professional boxing, and the world’s biggest marathons.

In June 2019, Showmax began testing live sport-streaming (which was received well by its audience) that will also form an integral part of the new Showmax Pro service.
