First follow THIS post to install my KODI Add-on Repository.

Now navigate to "Main Menu -> Add-ons -> My Add-ons"
Select ".." then select "Install from repository"
Select " Repository".
Select "Video add-ons" then "Showmax"

Select "Install" and the add-on will download and install.
You can now access the add-on in the Add-ons main menu item.
You will need to login with your Showmax credentials before playing any content.
Now simply navigate the content and select an item to play it.
If a movie has a trailer available, you can view it via the normal Information dialog.
Content is cached (usually for 24 hours) for faster navigation. 
You can force a refresh of a folders content via the "Clear Cache" context menu item.
eg. If your waiting for the latest episode of a show to be available.
You can also disable the cache completely in the add-on settings.
All playback requires Widevine DRM support in KODI.
Quality is controlled via the Inputstream add-on.
You can access settings for it via the "Inputstream Settings" settings item.
The add-on will show as "Playstation 0" under your accounts devices list so you can easily identify it against your other devices.


The add-on will not store your password. It is sent securely via https directly to the Showmax servers. The server returns a token that can be used to login in the future. This token and your username is stored in the add-ons userdata folder. This is the same method that their Android app uses.
