Showtime, a premium cable and satellite television network, is among the most popular in the industry partly due to its impressive range of content. The content includes original television series produced in-house, such as Ray Donovan, Dexter, Homeland, and The Affair, as well as theatrically released films, mixed martial arts and boxing matches, made-for-television movies, and standup comedy specials. There are also great sports series, such as its Showtime’s All Access: Quest for the Stanley Cup, which add to the content’s overall value.
The lineup of movies can be varied, too, with most of the classic and contemporary Hollywood classics. Many of the movies are also newer than those on its larger competitors like Hulu and Netflix.
Aside from access to on-demand content, Showtime subscribers can also stream several channels live. Subscribers can choose between Showtime West and Showtime East, a choice that definitely expands their viewing possibilities.
We like the solid and stable streaming quality provided by Showtime, too. Simultaneous streaming on multiple devices while still enjoying smooth HD streaming is possible. The quality is also maintained on both wired and wireless (i.e., Wi-Fi) devices, which also applied to on-demand and live television content streaming.
The Showtime prices are cheaper than many of its competitors, such as HBO, but about the same as Hulu and Netflix. The supported platforms include iOS, Android, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Roku.
