SHOWTIME offers a subscription video streaming service that gives access to content on Showtime without the need of a cable subscription. With your subscription, you’ll get access to all of their current originals like Billions, Shameless, Homeland, Ray Donovan, Black Monday, and On Becoming a God in Central Florida.

With your subscription, you’ll also get access to their critically acclaimed catalog of previous shows like Dexter, Weeds, Nurse Jackie, House of Lies, Californication, Queer as Folk, and The L Word.

SHOWTIME also has new-release films from CBS Films, Amblin Partners, and IFC Films, which appear on the streaming service 7-8 months after they are in theaters. Every month they also have hundreds of additional older movies from major movie studios.

You can subscribe for $10.99 a month either directly from SHOWTIME, or through Amazon Prime Video Channels, Apple TV Channels, or Roku Premium Subscriptions.

We tested SHOWTIME and other subscription streaming services for more than 100 hours. SHOWTIME is compatible with Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Roku, Android TV, iPhone/iPad, Android Phone/Tablet, Web Browsers, Samsung Smart TV, Xbox, and LG Smart TV.



The main reason to subscribe to SHOWTIME is for access to their critically-acclaimed original series. Currently, Showtime’s most popular shows include Billions, Shameless, Homeland, Ray Donovan, Black Monday, Kidding, and On Becoming a God in Central Florida.

TV Shows

In addition to new originals, you’ll also get access to their full catalog of shows that the channel has ever released. That means you can stream series like Dexter, Weeds, Nurse Jackie, House of Lies, Californication, Queer as Folk, and The L Word.


While their movie catalog isn’t as deep as Netflix, HBO Max, or Amazon Prime Video — the service receives new release films from CBS Films, Amblin Partners, and IFC. This joins hundreds of older movies that come to the service from major studios every month.


If you’re looking for kids content, there are better alternatives. But if you do subscribe, expect to have some family-friendly movie options every month.
