I received a 3 month subscription of showmax when I bought my new Samsung smart tv in December, when I tried to use it on the tv it does not accept the promo code, then I tried to use it on my pc and the same thing wont accept it I up dated the software on the tv with no joy it still didn't work, the tv needs software, I have got the 7 day and all I get with that is a load of rubbish not worth watching cant find any movies im stuck with African channels that I get on dstv I am very disappointed with showmax and Samsung.!!!!!
