The curse of the DO process .... shall be vested on you and your descendants for 3 generations ...... or something to that effect.

That is why automated payments of any sort are now completely unacceptable to me.

Some feedback for ShowMax - I was very surprised to see that their website doesn't appear to offer a search engine for titles, at least not when not logged in.

There is indeed a search function once logged in. It searches through titles, actors and even directors when you type in a word.

I just wanted to do a quick search, they may be losing customers without a not logged in version.
Ended up quicker to use the Explora.

Not sure if i need a new post or if i can post here. but following the guidelines to activate Showmax on my premium subscription is useless. The instructions state "Sign up to Showmax and select “DSTV add to account” as your payment method."

When i Login i only get two options - Credit/Check Card OR Paypal.

This is when using the link on the Showmax site.

So not sure if I am doing something wrong or if this option is no longer available ?

@Mclaren, have to presume that no Mod response means they can't help so try ShowMax themselves. Maybe you can let us know what the prob was.

Maybe I've missed the message/instructions so forgive me if I'm repeating something that has already been dealt with. What I am wanting to do is download content to my laptop for later viewing. This I am able to do on my tablet but when looking at the series I'm wanting to download to my laptop I notice that there's no download option? Am I missing something or is this the way it is?

Thanks for any assistance that may be forthcoming.

Its way easier to remove DRM on computers than tablets and phones. Until such a time a stronger encryption exists that makes it harder pirate, highly unlikely that content providers will allow you to download to PC. But with how technology is ever evolving, in the words of MC Marietjie "watch this space"

Did I or all of us miss some detail somewhere, this clearly says some sort of downloading is available;

Perhaps it already works on tablets / smartphones?
