What is new on Showmax in November: The Girlfriend Experience, Future Man, Isthunzi

Showmax is fast-becoming a formidable competitor in the market of streaming services. Now that it has partnered with Multichoice, it has leverage powers that allow it to bring with it some great entertainment content to our shores.
In November, we will get a little bit of everything, from new international TV shows to documentaries, something for the kiddies and of course, some of the best locally-produced content.

The Girlfriend Experience


Showmax is bringing this steamy, hot and sexy drama to our shores and in South Africa, you won’t be able to watch it anywhere else. With a package of season and two ready to binge on, you will be able to delve into the lives of a group of women whose lives extend far beyond their titles as escorts. This show is not recommended to anyone that is below the age of 18.

The Girlfriend Experience: The cast

Riley Keough, who is the daughter of the famous American singer, Lisa Marie Presley, takes the lead as Christine Reade on season one of the show. These are the rest of her castmates:

In one universe, the sophomore season is spearheaded by Emmy award-winning Anna Friel, who plays the protagonist role of Erica Myles. She is helped by the following cast:
