Valentine’s Day shows for every occasion

[FEATURED] Whether you’re spending your Valentine’s Day hanging out with FRIENDS or have a romantic night of DIRTY DANCING planned with your loved one, there’s something for everyone on ShowMax to help you find your inspiration

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and we’ve got a few of your favourite TV shows to help make this your best one ever.

For the cutesy couple:

If you’re looking for a quiet night in with your special someone, grab a bowl of homemade popcorn, turn down the lights and settle in for a romantic night for two. Whether your relationship is more SHAKESPEARE IN MZANZI than SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE, who doesn’t enjoy snuggling on the couch with a glass of wine in hand. Bonus points for those who forgot to make a dinner reservation or if you’d just prefer to enjoy a movie without waiting in a queue at the popcorn stand, or spending 90 minutes with someone kicking the back of your seat.

For the glam girls’ night:

If your significant other is out SAVING PRIVATE RYAN and you’re planning a fun-filled girls’ night in, gather your squad and host a pyjama party. Pretend you’re a modern day EMMA and have a girly gossip session about what kind of guys you could see your single friends end up with or help your bestie figure out HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN TEN DAYS and get rid of that guy from the gym who’s a little more interested than she is. With ShowMax’s 14-day free trial, there are endless hours of KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS to get you and your girls through the night.

For the sexy singleton:

Spending your Valentine’s Day alone? Don’t spend it feeling sorry for yourself or wishing that toxic ex would finally come round. Focus on yourself and indulge in a little SHAMELESS TV marathon or download something SCANDALOUS & FABULOUS to keep yourself distracted from the typical cheesy Valentine’s Day screenings. Or why not put yourself out there more? Stop looking for THE FIXER and spend your evening figuring out what you really want in a relationship.
