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.
