Where to stream big shows like Vikings, Power, Succession online

Showmax is bringing us some of the biggest shows ever, but it’s still one of the most affordable streaming apps

Streaming giants like Netflix, Amazon, Disney and HBO are in a race to capture audiences around the world, including in Africa. For average consumers, the problem is that subscribing to all of them adds up. It could end up being pricier than satellite TV!

In Nigeria, we have one of the best-value-for-money streaming options in the world: Showmax. It’s one app but includes the biggest international series and movies, the latest from Africa Magic, the best of Nollywood and Bollywood, and shows from HBO, CBS, Warner, Disney, Nickelodeon, BBC and more.
