How to get showmax on your internet connected Dstv explora in Kenya

Some Good news to Dstv explora customers here in Kenya who were longing to have Showmax content on their internet connected devices after the company added Dstv explora to its supported devises. Showmax which has so far put up a good fight against streaming giants such as amazon prime and Netflix to carter for those who’d rather stream content directly via their internet connected smart TV’s or other streaming devices like the apple TV and ​​Roku Streaming Stick as opposed to traditional satellite TV. The service which prides to have thousands of hours of local and international movies and series – though not as latest as Netflix, is used by many Kenyans who find it cheaper and more portable than other Dstv services.

Before the Explorer was added to its supported devices, Showmax customers could only access the service via an app on streaming devices like Apple TV, Android TV, Smart TV’s and so forth. Since Showmax mainly operates via internet, Dstv explora customers will consequently need to have their devices hooked to the internet to access content from the service.

  • First and foremost, as you’d imagine, internet connection is required on your explorer
