Initially announced a few months ago, Showtime’s finally announced its own streaming service, similar to HBO’s “HBO Now.” Just called “Showtime,” the pay TV channel’s cord cutter friendly service will debut in July on iOS devices; support for Android will come “soon.” The new service will cost $10.99/month, with a 30-day free trial.
Showtime doesn’t seem as popular a channel as HBO; lately, it doesn’t seem to have as many shows that’re of “Game of Thrones”‘s level of popularity, “Dexter” aside. Still, fans of its lineup will surely appreciate the chance to get the channel without paying for a cable package. Showtime might also get more attention with the high profile return in 2016 of the early 90s cult classic “Twin Peaks.”
