In an official release, Niclas Ekdahl, CEO of MultiChoice’s Connected Video division, said:

“It’s early days for sport on Showmax – at the moment we’re in a testing phase to gauge interest. We’ll be trying a bunch of different content to see what works and see how people interact with it.

“There are now three major content legs to Showmax. First, we’ve got international smash hits from the likes of HBO, the people who brought the world Game of Thrones. Second, we’re the home of African content with a huge catalogue of top-flight local shows and movies. And now with sport we’ve added a unique third leg, something that we think clearly sets Showmax apart and gives us the competitive edge.”
