Showmax, the internet TV (OTT) service which launched in Kenya in October 2016, has a huge catalogue of popular series, movies, documentaries and kids content available on demand with no ads. Showmax Kenya’s management team, based in Nairobi, is tasked with delivering the best local content along with international favourites.

Speaking about the new deal with Zuku, Patrick Mungai, who heads up Showmax’s growth in East Africa, said: “Getting content right isn’t something you can do from another country, which is why we set up shop in Nairobi. Some of our most popular local shows include movies such as Marikiti Women, House of Lungula, Veve and local series such as Rush, Auntie Boss and State House. On the international side, we benefit from the content deals made by the wider Naspers group, meaning on a regular basis we deliver episodes express from the US, like Mr Robot Season 3 and South Park Season 21.”

“We also have series that come first on Showmax, such as horror anthology Channel Zero, the controversially acclaimed Young Pope and sci-fi intrigue with Room 104. And we’ve of course got favourites like The Big Bang Theory, full box sets of Friends, Sex and the City, and all seven seasons of Game of Thrones.”

Zuku Fiber is a leading provider of high-speed Unlimited Home Internet, entertainment and communication services in Kenya. Zuku Fiber offers a unique proposition in the market with Triple Play services – offering three services for one price: Unlimited Home Internet, Digital Television and Telephony services.

Zuku’s Triple Play services are available in Nairobi, Mombasa and surrounding towns in Kenya as well as Tanzania and Uganda.

On the occasion of the introduction of the Zuku Fiber plus Showmax packages, Thomas Hintze, the CEO of Wananchi Group, which operates the Zuku brand, said: “The partnership with Showmax will enable our customers to access an unlimited catalogue of content on Showmax over Zuku Fiber’s Home Internet service, which offers the Fastest Internet speed in Kenya at 250 Mbps. I would like to encourage our customers to subscribe to the new Zuku Fiber plus Showmax packages to enhance their experience and satisfaction when using these two great services.”
