Showtime-Thumb

Showtime Anytime is how people with an appropriate cable subscription can peruse the channel's content on their phone or tablet. Unfortunately, the app doesn't work on just any internet connection. Your provider has to make the list, and starting today a couple more have joined the ranks. Now people who rely on Time Warner Cable or Bright House Networks to get online can take advantage of Showtime's Android app.

In addition to support for new ISPs, the new update also lets users remain signed in for longer. This should stop you from having to log in every 24 hours.

What's new:

  • Support for Time Warner Cable
  • Support for Bright House Networks
  • Support for longer sessions—no need to log in every 24 hours!
  • Bug fixes

Showtime Anytime users can view every season of such popular shows as Homeland, Dexter, House of Lies, and many others, but a cable package that includes Showtime is required to do so. If you meet that criteria, you can get started by hitting up the widget below.

    Went to install, and was taken aback by the poor ratings. And then I realized 99% of the reviews were by boneheads who were unhappy that their cable network wasn't supported.

    That's a fine thing to be upset about - I've been out in the cold with my TWC service until now. But it is not a relevant critique for an app THAT DOES NOT SUPPORT your carrier.

    [Might as well give the app a one-star slam because the picture is too small on my 4" phone screen. Boo! I want a bigger picture! Not to mention, it doesn't even work when my battery is empty. F'in useless. And Carrie Mathison cries too much. Etc.]

      How dare you challenge people's freedoms/rights to complain about everything that is not exactly how they want it to be. Also, back off Carrie, she is under a lot of stress and has mental health issues she is dealing with. As far as looking at a 4" phone screen, that is a legitimate complaint and for that I grant anyone full access to the bitchmobile.

      I think it's fair - if they don't support your carrier how could you not consider that to be a flaw? While it works fine for you, it clearly doesn't for a lot of people on other carriers and that's why they're reviewing it poorly.

    I don't understand the login every so often requirement... I mean, yeah, prevent unauthorized users but I don't believe Xfinity or HBO Go require this, but I could be wrong.

    And yet, no Dish Network.

    It's funny, I was reading a thread on Dish's website where people have been asking for this.....for over a year. Man, screw you, Dish!
