Showtime Launches Standalone, Subscriptionless Service

Showtime App

Following in the footsteps of HBO, Showtime is now going to be available as a standalone service now, providing access to programming without paying a cable or satellite bill.

CBS owned Showtime, although not as popular as HBO, launches ahead of new season premiers and includes unlimited on-demand streaming of shows as well as live broadcasts of both the channel’s east and west feeds.

The Showtime standalone service cost $10.99 per month with no subscription after a 30-day free trial, while HBO’s standalone cost $14.99 per month. Right now the Showtime service is available on Apple TV, iPhone, iPad and Roku set-top boxes. Look for it on PlayStation Vue and Hulu services this week.

HBO Streaming Service Coming To Apple Devices – No Cable Or Satellite Service Needed

With more and more content providers looking to the internet to get content to the masses and with the masses getting fed up with bloated, high-priced cable and satellite bills, a la carte streaming services from major networks are coming down the pike fast.

HBO’s standalone streaming service, HBO Now, will launch on Apple devices in April and not coincidentally, just in time for the season premiere of “Game of Thrones,” the network announced on Monday at Apple’s Spring Forward event. New HBO series like “Game of Thrones,” “True Detective,” and “Veep” will stream live along side cable and satellite provider feeds so there will be no extra time spent waiting for these shows to be added to the library.

The new HBO Now service will cost $14.99 a month and will give subscribers access to all of the network’s past, present and future series plus HBO’s lineup of Hollywood movies. Apple has exclusivity for 90 days from launch, so non-Apple users will have to wait until mid-summer, assuming other providers will launch the service.
