In the age of internet TV streaming, it is all about the race to capture cord cutters. Who will win the most former cable subscribers? There are multiple online TV streaming services already and at the same time cable giants are launching their own solutions. The market is well and truly crowded.
Showtime recently announced that it will offer its channel over the internet without requiring a conventional cable subscription and the option to pay for it month to month. Well, that streaming service has now gone live on Apple TV.
The Showtime iOS app doesn’t require a cable login and that means that users on iPhones and iPads will also be able to stream Showtime online without needing a cable subscription. It feels good to break the shackles of traditional cable TV. Showtime’s streaming service is priced lower than HBO, which launched as an Apple exclusive and still costs $15 per month. CBS’s channel will cost $11 per month and new subscribers will be given a 30 day free trial. You certainly have plenty of options.
Showtime is available exclusively on Apple TV for the moment, but it will arrive soon on Roku devices as well as Sony’s PlayStation Vue TV streaming service and Hulu too. There’s no reason not to check it out.
