Fundamental issues 1/5
Cannot playback shows at all. Constantly get video playback errors that drop me to the main menu. Unusable.
Don't bother to download. Watched one episode and app stopped loading video. Garbage
Keeps stopping videos playback every other second 1/5
Keeps crashing with message unable to load video
Not recommended, video streaming stops midway through an episode and doesn't allow play to resume. Tried on Apple TV v3, v4, iPhone and iPad with same result.
Not worth it 1/5
It keeps breaking my stream displaying, "videoplay back failed- cannot open"..again and again. This is simply horrible. I only subscribe to watch homeland and one week the new episode is not there cause of the super bowl and now this. Get it together showtime.
And why would they ever start a show to reveal episode 1, then take a week off to reveal episode 1 again. That makes no sense. Not happy
Fix it 1/5
I am not paying $11 a month for an app to constantly shut down . If the issue is not fixed I will cancel my subscription.
Crashes 10-15 seconds into viewing every time.
Stops playing in middle of show and demands signin
This app has more glitches than a Turrets patient.
Constantly having to delete the app and reinstall it b/c it locks up and seizes.
Shame on you showtime.
Very buggy and frustrating. 1/5
Please invest in a better development team or better management, take it from another developer. What you've put out shouldn't be making it into production, this is very buggy, crashes (bad enough to crash my iPad entirely) and doesn't sync properly with Chromecast. Takes several tries to initialize a Chromecast connection, fails or otherwise plays both locally and on the Chromecast (seriously?).
Please add a continue watching option 1/5
Netflix has spoiled me rotten. This app is terrible. You have to search for the show you want to watch every time you open the app. So glad I canceled it immediately after purchasing. Just have to hold on for 8 more episodes of Shameless!
This app is the worst. It continually skips parts of what you're watching and doesn't connect to the tv well.
Free trial?? 1/5
SHOWTIME doesn't know the meaning of "free." I wanted one month free trial but they charge you $10.99 no matter what. That's not a free trial. NO THANK YOU!
Update: White screen of death 4/5
Creating a new Showtime password in a web browser and then updating this new password in AppleTv subscriptions seemed to fix my problem. Like the Showtime app a lot now and impressed with the TV app.
I purchased a Showtime subscription thru AppleTV 4th ed. and have only been able to watch once....on the day of purchase ~Jan 23 2017. My last attempts during the previous week (Jan 28th Til Feb 1st) only results in a milky white screen (with upper center sky blue areas) when aTV attempts to play my requested Showtime episode. I have no problem streaming via Hulu or aTV purchases. Really disappointed in the app, and hope they release an update or aTV/Showtime fix problem ASAP.
Not even worth it if it was free 1/5
First off the app is the worst, half the time it will never start the other half it will cut out or no sound. The other issue is the terrible lack of movies no good selection at all never any new releases, not even ones that go back a year!
Please update!! 1/5
Really needs an update for bug fixes. Constantly freezes up or takes forever to load. Goes back to home screen during the middle of a show, takes forever to load again. Really ridiculous.
Not bad 4/5
I downloaded the free trial for one week. it was enjoyable but I only watched a couple of movies. Showtime is not my style.
Busted Apple TV App, Glitchy iPad App 1/5
How does a premier content provider release an app that does not launch on arguably its primary platform (Apple TV)?
On launch, on the latest gen Apple TV, this app just loads... and loads... and loads... and loads... never actually launching.
On iPad Air, the app doesn't work unless to force quit it after the first time you launch it for the day.
HBO, Hulu, Netflix, ESPN, etc are much more stable and reliable. It's past time for Showtime to at least get up to par.
So what if it's not fancy or perfect? It's free, and it lets me watch my fav shows on my iPad. That's good enough for me.

It is unfortunate I can't leave 0 stars...worse app ever!!!
Sho App 1/5
By Non carpenter
Terrible app for this channel.
Rarely opens , shuts down frequently. Whats the point of having the premium channel if you cant access it ?
Dont send me back to cable!!!
So far.. it's OK👌🏻 4/5
Only way I can watch Shameless season 7 since it's not on Netflix and the app provides that so, so far I'm happy 😊
Streaming Difficulties 1/5
There are a lot of streaming problems using this app with 4th generation Apple TV. It worked fine during trial period. Two days after subscribing, I could not connect at all.
Horrible… Just fix it 1/5
Pay $11 a month for premium app, just so each time we want to watch a show we can delete the app, then restore the purchase, after reinstalling the app? Fix it Showtime!
This is a great app! I love the setup. I can find any show I could possibly want.
Nothing will stream 1/5
Waste of time. Don't bother downloading because nothing on the app works
Horrible app. Crashes. Won't launch. Ridiculous. 1/5
This is ridiculously bad. The app rarely launches. When it does it crashes. I even had to reset my entire AppleTV because the first time I installed it, it crashed my OS and I couldn't launch settings. Unbelievably bad app.
I have had this app for 3 days and have only been able to watch one episode of the show I'm watching. It's not even worth having for the free trail they give you because it doesn't work for 1 hour let alone 7 days! Worst app ever!!!
Horrible I want my money back 1/5
Showtime still charges you even when you cancel your membership! I want my money back this is ridiculous!
I enter my account and password and it lets me in. Then the app just freezes. Can't move anything and have to exit the app. Terrible.
Unfortunately, a major disappointment 1/5
I was looking forward to watching "Homeland" on this app through my AppleTV and unfortunately it did not work. I downloaded the app and tried viewing the show last night with no luck. Tried this morning, no luck. I see only seconds of the program, before it pauses, then attempts to stream then pauses. Cancelled subscription just now. Glad for the seven day try-out before committing. I have the Netflix app on Apple TV and it works.

Just received a new Apple TV for Christmas. I updated the software to iosTV 10, then downloaded the Showtime app. The Showtime app will not even open. I get an error message reading: "Server Error. It looks like we're having some trouble contacting our server, please try again later."
Customer service did respond to my request for help, so I'm grateful for that.
I don't want to pay 1/5
By Flaunt an
I don't want to pay
I can not believe that I am being charged for this premium channel and I'm unable to view anything. I'm trying to cancel it but when I go on the website it doesn't respond. I'm so frustrated!!! Don't waste your money on this app it is not worth at all!!!! If I could give a zero rating I would have...
Worst app ever!!!!!! 1/5
Taking money from me every month when the Apple TV app has worked since the Apple TV update. This is BS. If we are paying money for a premium show there should be premium service.
Sooooo bad 1/5
Everyone involved in this app should be fired. Plain and simple. And to pay 10 dollars a month and to only be able to use showtime through this inconsistent, archaic garbage is highway robbery.
Just AWEFUL! Showtime Should be Embarrassed 1/5
I have been using the App Store for more than five years and never felt compelled to write a review until now. This app is absolutely atrocious. Even if the design was user-friendly, which it absolutely is not, it would still get zero stars because after every use I have to delete the app and then re-download it and sign in. I'm writing this not so much for customers but to tell Showtime to get their act together because there are many other great streaming options out there
Apple TV App is garbage 1/5
The Apple TV app constantly crashes. It's absolute garbage. Its not even worth one star. They never respond to emails, or Facebook complaints.
Doesn't let me log in with my cable network account.. so if I want to have the TV app integration I have to pay for another subscription to content I already have access to?
Don't waste your time/money 1/5
I had a 7 day free trial but was only able to use 1 day due to showtime "not being available". Customer service was less than helpful. Glad I didn't pay for this before it stopped working. Boooo!
Always Glitchy 1/5
By El Cake
This app has major issues on appletv and I have had to uninstall and reinstall multiple times. When opening app it stays on white screen and never goes to home page. Once reinstalled, it'll work for a while, but most recently it will not select anything when I use enter button on remote. Have to exit app and try again, where I then wait for a long time for home page to load up.
My internet service is working very well, so that's not the issue.
Can't watch anything... 1/5
Paying a monthly subscription and I haven't been able to watch anything on my AppleTV. Doesn't go past Loading...ridiculous!!! I've tried for several days. I tried to airplay from iPhone, not working either and I haven't updated my phone yet. Any answers?
If I could give a negative star, I would. Shows take forever to load, if they ever even do. Poorly put together app. Not worth the 10$ a month.
I'm at a loss for words. This app may be the worst thing in the world of media streaming. Showtime, you have hit bottom!
Horrible Streaming! 1/5
I didn't want to believe the reviews and the ratings I saw before downloading the app. I just signed up for the 7 days free trial and it worked perfectly fine when I used it for the first time. However, I've been trying to stream an episode for the last 12 hours and it doesn't work! Guess who's not gonna be paying the $11 a month? 🙋🏽
Don't Waste Your Time 1/5
Needs a lot of work 2/5
No recently watched
No skip ahead
Can't add a series or season to list. You can only add individual episodes
No skip ahead 10sec button. Only behind
Can't download for offline
The app used to be on par with hbo and Netflix but now they need to seriously update the app to stay current.
Bad experience 1/5

Expected more from sho
Great App! 5/5
I love being able to watch Homeland and Billions anytime I want!
App is terrible 1/5
So you can only watch this on tv if you have Apple TV. If I'm paying for the service I should be able to hook it up to my tv with my hdmi cord and watch it. I can hook my HBO app up to my tv.
