Its improved over time. The app shouldve been called Showtime sometime a year ago.. now its showtime most of the time.. movie selection has never been great despite a few forgotten gems.. but of all the premium channels it has the best original series 2nd to only hbo... must have if your into series more than movies.. skip if your a film buff.
Issues casting to Chromecast Overall the app works well if you want to view on phone or laptop, however we wanted to watch older shows on or television using the app and casting it. Unfortunately our cable provider does not have older seasons of many showtime episodes on demand, hence why we downloaded the app. When we attempt to watch a show, any show, it will stream on the phone or computer fine, but as soon as you cast, the TV says that we are outside of the US and doesn't allow us to watch the show.
Would give more stars, but... Updated 7/28/2016: I revisited my review since Showtime added Chromecast support. The app itself works ok, so I've changed my review from 2 to 3 stars. Original Review: The lack of Chromecast support is keeping me from rating this app higher. Please consider offering this feature. Showtime is the only media streamer (at least of the ones I subscribe to) that does not offer Chromecast.
Unable to connect to the internet Why? I'm a technician for Charter and I understand the networking very well. This is THEE only app with this issue on my phone and ipad. Why? Plz fix your streaming issues and voice quality. It sounds low, and could hardly hear when/if it works!
App opens and loads movies so slow! Dumb that I can't activate this app on my Amazon Fire TV through the app or at least from my phones internet connection. You make us activate through a PC which I don't have with me. Idiots! Also dumb that I need this app to activate on my Roku. Idiots again! And for a third time it's dumb that I need to activate the app every couple of months. You Idiots ruin the experience. It's not worth the aggravation. I'm done with this app.
Something happened from one day to the next Worked great yesterday. Today not working at all. Keep getting "We are not able to connect to the Internet, please check your connection." Would love to give 5 stars if they get THEIR bug fixed. My Internet is working just fine.
