Can’t complain

I’ve had access to Showmax for a year or two now. I’m living in the UK, but lived in SA until 2003 and have many Afrikaans speaking relatives. I had a sudden hankering after hearing Afrikaans again. This app is great and I’m still subscribing. I watched all the movies and then moved on to documentaries etc. I’d like to be able to switch subtitles on or off. Also I’d like the option of Afrikaans subtitles so I can immerse myself more in understanding and following the dialogue. It would be nice to be able to rate each show individually.

I'm giving a 2 star because it crashes all the time!

I am very happy with the shows and programs but it is very irritating when the app keeps on crushing. It works for a little while just to stop working completely after a few uses. The only way I can make it work is to uninstall and reinstall again. This happens all the time. PLEASE FIX IT!!!
