The SHOWTIME streaming service is a monthly subscription service that will give you commercial-free, unlimited access to celebrated SHOWTIME programming.  All you’ll need is a high-speed internet connection to watch our award-winning series like “Homeland”, “Shameless” and “Ray Donovan”, star-studded hit movies, groundbreaking documentaries, hilarious comedy specials and action packed sports including live championship boxing events.  You will get the most current programming – stream all-new episodes when they premiere or catch up on past seasons, plus watch classic Showtime Original Series like “Dexter” and “Weeds”.  And, new titles will be added regularly so there will always be something great to watch.
