With the recent launch of Showmax Pro, UEFA fans are spoilt for choice with viewing options for this weekend’s finals action.

On Friday 21 August at 21:00, Sevilla and Inter Milan go head-to-head in the UEFA Europa League final. Then on Sunday 23 August, it’s the big one: the UEFA Champions League final, also at 21:00. Both clashes are available to livestream at www.showmax.com or via the Showmax app in South Africa only.

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.

Buy your Showmax data bundles via USSD Telkom (*180!1*5*1*3*1#), MTN (*136*2*999#) and Vodacom (*135#). DM
