On Monday, we are hopping on a plane and heading off to visit my family in Cape Town for 10 days. There are two big problems with that statement…. a two-hour plane ride with two kids and 10 days in a house with people who aren’t used to watching kids shows 27/7. 

What are we going to do? 

We’re going to download 25 shows off our Showmax account to store on the girls tables and then they can watch offline You know what that means right? It means that they can watch their favorite shows on the plane, in the car, on a beach, in a bar. Well not really in a bar, but I couldn’t think of anything else that rhymed, but you get my drift. 

It’s so ridiculously simple, my almost 9 year old can do it. 

Well Ava pretty much set up the download function on her tablet already, but for those of us who aren’t as tech savvy as a 9 year old, here are the steps to follow:

  • If you don’t already have a Showmax account, go to showmax.com to sign up.
  • Download the Showmax app on your smartphone or tablet for either iOS or Android.
  • Open the Showmax app and choose the series episode or movie you want to watch offline.
  • Click on the DOWNLOAD button. On the smartphone app, it’s usually represented by an icon of a cloud with an arrow pointing downwards, to the right of the episode name, above the preview screen. (On a tablet, you’ll see a blue DOWNLOAD button next to the blue PLAY NOW button.)
  • You’ll get a menu with download quality options to choose from – Low Quality, Standard Quality, Good Quality and High Quality – depending on data capability or space on your device. To use as little data and as little space as possible, select Low or Standard Quality, especially if you’re downloading cartoons for your kids, or anything to watch on your smartphone screen. These low-quality options are perfect for small screens.
  • Your download should start immediately. You are now free to enjoy your viewing offline once the download is complete.

Important to remember…

Anyone with the latest version of the Showmax App using a compatible iOS or Android device can use the download function. You can download 25 episodes of your favorite series or movies from your account but make sure you check the space allocation on your device first. Your downloads will remain on your device for 30 days.
