Showtime to Launch a Stand-Alone Streaming Service

Showtime streaming service on Apple devicesGreat news for cord cutters: Yet another great premium channel will soon be available without a cable subscription. On Sunday, July 12, Showtime will launch a stand-alone Internet TV service with past episodes, movies, and a network live stream for just $10.99 per month. The service will be accessible through an Apple iOS app, an Apple TV app or through the Showtime website.

“Going over-the-top means Showtime will be much more accessible to tens of millions of potential new subscribers,” says CBS CEO Les Moonves. (Showtime is a wholly-owned subsidiary of CBS Corporation.)

Showtime’s new offering is clearly meant to mirror that from HBO. In April, the company launched HBO Now, a $14.99 monthly service that similarly offers streaming content without requiring a pay TV subscription. Showtime may not be the same kind of programming heavyweight, but the network does have a pretty good stable of compelling shows including Homeland, Nurse Jackie and Twin Peaks.

If you’re interested in giving Showtime’s new online service a try, there’s no risk to do so. The company is offering a free 30-day trial to those who join up during its inaugural month of July. To learn more about the new Showtime streaming offering and sign up for updates about it, visit
