I've been subscribing to Showmax for a while now. I love that they have all my favorite series, but I hate having to watch on my laptop. How do you connect it so that you can see it on the TV instead? Does it have to go through the laptop still?
Does your laptop have a video-out socket, because you might be able to plug it straight into the TV to play through that? ShowMax have a SmartTV App on their website so you could sign up your TV directly, which is a good option when messing around with wires gets too much of a pain.
