Showtime Anytime Offers Streaming to PCs

Posted Tue Oct 4, 2011 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

You won't find a streaming app quite yet, though a new social sharing app is available now for the iPad.

Being able to stream TV content to any device you have is, of course, the dream. We're not there yet - not by a longshot - but we may be on the way.

Showtime Anytime is a nice step forward for the company, especially after pulling their content from Netflix. It allows subscribers to watch shows on their PC or laptop by simply logging in to the site. It's nothing revolutionary, but it's convenient for those already paying for Showtime.

The offering is fairly incomplete as it is, at least as far as full features are concerned. You can't stream to a mobile device and, of course, there is no way to access the site if you aren't a subscriber. Being able to sign up for just Showtime Anytime would be really nice. You'll also have to wait a bit for it unless you're an AT&T U-Verse subscriber, since they get first dibs.
