How to watch all English premier league matches and other sporting tournaments on Showmax in Kenya

Customers on the Showmax streaming service will be delighted to learn they have an option to upgrade their current packages to watch various live sporting tournaments from the English premier league as well as from select countries. The service which has been operational in Kenya for some time now, and was unveiled by Dstv’s parent multichoice as a response to increasing shift in content provision where most consumers are now streaming instead of traditional satellite options. The tide finally caught-up with Multichoice who unveiled the services to counter the likes of Netflix who are currently taking a center stage in the segment.

 Previously, Showmax customers could only enjoy limited content from the platform including entertainment, music, and news; you’d have to subscribe to one of the Dstv’s platforms to access various sporting channels that broadcast events from top leagues such as the English Premier league.

The latest development which effectively brings continents popular live football broadcast channel – Supersport on the platform will give subscribers an opportunity to watch their favorite teams play on their devices without having to pay a separate subscription on Dstv.
