Showmax mobile subscription rates

Showmax is making some changes to its subscription packages to make its services appealing to Safaricom customers. The company has announced that it has lowered its mobile subscriptions bought and paid for via M-PESA.

These new price changes are targeting the Safaricom mobile data packages, Showmax Mobile and Showmax Pro Mobile. If you can remember, Showmax introduced these two bundles a few months back when it announced a new partnership with Safaricom that saw customers pay only Ksh 389 and 1299 for Showmax mobile and Showmax Pro mobile respectively. Subscribers also got 1GB and 3GB of data respectively.

Even with the reduced subscription rates, subscribers still get the 1GB and 3GB of data depending on the package they select.

The new Showmax mobile M-pesa rates effective today are:

  • Showmax Mobile + 1GB Safaricom data – Kshs 299, down from Ksh 389.
  • Showmax Pro Mobile + 3GB Safaricom data – Kshs 1299

At Ksh 299, Showmax now has the cheapest subscription plan rivaling Netflix’s mobile only plan that goes for Ksh 300 per month. Yes, Showmax is cheaper by only 1 shilling.
