In bed with ShowMax
I wake up early – every morning – and usually I would lie there thinking what I could do if I had the whole house to myself.
Before ShowMax, one of my dream options was watching TV. After ShowMax, it works like this: I wake up, switch on (device), plug in (headphones) and watch (usually an hourlong something) effortless TV on/in my bed.
I don’t exactly know what live streaming means (and I don’t care). What I do know is that I don’t have to download anything. And if I don’t have to download, I don’t have to pay – I’ll wait and see what my next Telkom bill looks like. My house is wireless and uncapped. I suggest you don’t try this if you aren’t wireless and uncapped.
The whole experience up to now has just been a pleasure – from signing on, getting the confirmation email, paying and watching some of my favourite TV series.
I am, however, slightly pissed off. Looking at my series collection in DVD format, I worked out that the cost of my whole collection could have kept me in ShowMax for the rest of my life!
