No comments

Multichoice has announced the launch of Showmax Pro which will expand the offering available on the Video on Demand (VoD) platform. Initially, Pro will only be available in Nigeria and Kenya.

Judging from the 2-territory launch it seems pricing will be different in each region but here are the Kenyan and Nigerian prices;
