Showtime OTT service goes live in the US

Showtime OTTShowtime, the new standalone streaming service from the US broadcaster, has now gone live in the US.

The service, which is priced at US$10.99 per-month, gives users on-demand access to Showtime original series, movies and live broadcasts of the east and west coast feeds of the Showtime TV network.

Showtime is available via Apple TV, iOS devices, Roku streaming players, the PlayStation Vue cloud TV service and Hulu Plus.

Hulu is offering the service for US$8.99 per month in addition to a US$7.99 per month Hulu subscription and said that the Showtime offering “complements Hulu’s rapidly expanding library of exclusive content.”

Commenting on the Showtime launch last month, Leslie Moonves, the CEO of the firm’s parent company CBS Corporation, said: “Going over-the-top means Showtime will be much more accessible to tens of millions of potential new subscribers.”
