Where to livestream EPL games in South Africa


Catch all the EPL action with Showmax Pro, with live sport streaming to your device, courtesy of SuperSport. 

All eyes are on Man City and Man United this weekend, while the Reds are set to defend their Premier League title against a hungry Chelsea. Meanwhile, Arsenal, Everton and Leicester are bolstered by early wins and looking to build on their success. The Spurs are a bit glum after losing to Everton in the opening round, and hoping to win back some points. All this EPL action and more is available to livestream at www.showmax.com or via the Showmax app.

Worried about data?

If you don’t have access to Wi-Fi, stream Showmax with data bundles from Telkom, Vodacom or MTN. To use save data, go into Settings > Preferences in the app and choose the lowest Bandwidth Capping option so you use less data when you stream. The Minimum setting uses just 100MB per hour.
