The popular video streaming service in Kenya, Showmax, has announced the addition of five local Kenyan Tv channels on its platform that will be available for subscribers to live stream 24 hours a day. This comes after Showmax recently launched Showmax Pro in July that added live sports streaming, news and music channels to the existing entertainment content that Showmax offers for its subscribers.
The local Kenyan Tv channels that are available to stream on the platform include NTV, KBC, KTN Home, KTN News and K24. Unfortunately, the list misses the popular local Kenyan Tv channel of Royal Media Services, Citizen Tv and we still don’t know the reason for its omission.
These channels will be available to both Showmax and Showmax Pro subscribers and it includes all mobile plans. It will also be available on the Web and select Smart TVs.
“With the addition of these live channels, Showmax offers Kenyans a one-stop streaming destination featuring the best of international and Kenyan shows, movies and Kid’s shows, the world’s best sport from SuperSport on our Pro plan and now, live streams of Kenyan’s biggest channels.” Yolisa Phahle, CEO of Connected Video at Multichoice noted.
“We’re constantly working on new ways to improve the Showmax experience for our subscribers. Whether it’s M-Pesa payments or daily episodes of Maisha Magic favourites like Selina, Kina and Kovu as well as weekly episodes of Sol Family and Hullabaloo Estate, our local first approach keeps our Kenyan subscribers top of mind,” Yolisa Phale added.
