Young and free (not)

For the cosmo-esque dreamer  into The Bold Type you’ll enjoy Younger on Showmax, an equally fast-paced, show with some naughty bits here and there.

Younger follows Liza (Sutton Foster) who is in her 40s but is pretending to be younger so she can score a job at a publishing firm. Her ill-gotten youth doesn’t hurt her chances with hot young tattoo artist Josh (Nico Tortorella) either.


Drama, drama, drama

If you like your crime dramas with action and passion like Ray Donovan on DStv Now then you’ll enjoy Billions starring Paul Giamatti on Showmax too. 

If you enjoy period dramas, especially ones featuring leading ladies like Jamestown on DStvthen Showmax has shows you’ll definitely enjoy like HarlotsWar & Peace and Downton Abbey


Harlots is set in the 18th century and follows Margaret Wells, a brothel owner, who is trying to raise her daughters in the rather adventurous setting. 


For the kiddies
If your child enjoys Winx Club (Weekdays at 18:55 on NickToons) then they'll also enjoy Ever After High, which follows the adventures of Apple White, Raven Queen, Alistair Wonderland, CA Cupid and their friends. Watch Ever After High on Showmax

If you like Yo Kai Watch (Saturdays and Sundays at 14:35 on Cartoon Network ) you’ll like Digimon Fusion starrring Mikey and friends who protect the Digimons against all odds.
