Bare bones but works on ATV 3/5
Haven't had any problems but definitely needs an upgrade in the UI department when compared to other services that offer Showtime. At least it's integrated with TV app. Twin Peaks has been killer and the 30 day trial seems awfully generous.
complete crap 1/5
would give no stars if possible. crashes incessantly.
Great App 5/5
If you download the content it works in airplane mode you can manually adjust going forward or back. The first thing I did when downloading was watching live view worked fine. You get east and west live views . I've watched a couple of movies now no problems and will catch up on seasons. Please workout a deal with direct tv now !
Poorly done 1/5
I constantly have to restore my iTunes purchase when launching this app... about one out of three times I launch it. I subscribed for Twin Peaks to find the live stream is garbage. The sound was terrible, the picture kept freezing and/or downgrading in quality to a giant blur. Sound would go out of sync. It was such a bummer for a premiere I was anticipating so much, and the only reason I subscribed to Showtime.
Just keeps loading 1/5
I have tried using this on my iPad my Apple TV my chrome cast and even just on my phone and it loads for a min buffers then stops or won't even load and just keeps having the stupid loading ball rolling around. I have never had problems with any other app casting like this before. I have HBO and STARZ and they work perfectly fine. I'm so disappointed in this app
By Catherine the fighter
I have show time. However, app does not let u connect to it. It would b nice if I could connect both situations.
Keeps crashing 1/5
Keeps crashing in the middle of show. Error message says it's incompatible encoding. Tried deleting app and reinstalling, also reset my iPad. Just keeps crashing. 😒
By Johnny Trench
This app is such trash. What a waste of money to have to deal with an app that's so slow and crashes every time. Go home, Showtime.
Won't connect to tv 1/5
Keep trying to pair the showtime app with my phone and it just closes out each time it searches for nearby device
No Twin Peaks For Me 1/5
By Deja DeMoss
I'm sorry we can not locate Showtime at the moment, try again later. :(
Showtime anytime 5/5
By James J 1984
So far I have not had any trouble with this app I'll see how things go
Worst sign in ever. 1/5
Glad I only did the free trial. Since activating from from phone on iTunes. I can't use it on Apple TV. Already canceled and done.
Doesn't Work 1/5
By Shiny Happy Punk
The title says it all; just keep getting the loading ball of death...
Terrible app 1/5
Good luck with this app. No fast forward or rewind available. Can't pause. App closes when not in use.
Needs a "Watched Show" Indicator/Buffering An Issue 3/5
1. This app needs an indicator of the shows that you have watched (like Netflix). I sometimes go days or weeks between past episodes of a series I am watching. There is no way to tell where I am in the series and I sometimes have to watch a few minutes of several episodes to figure it out.
2. This app needs a "Recently Watched" section. The only way to get back to a series you are watching is to navigate from the main menu and find the series again. Combined with issue 1 above, it makes it very frustrating to watch a series over an extended period of time.
3. Buffering is an issue. Frequently the audio and video get out of sync and I have to end the episode and restart them to get them back in sync. I will work with support on this, but I shouldn't have to. None of my other streaming apps have this issue.
Love Showtime but... 2/5
What's up with the crashing of the app??
Buffering issues 1/5
By Sgt 714
The Showtime app worked for a couple of months but for the past month it has been buffering, taking all the joy out of watching any program. Our other apps are not stalling out, just Showtime. Suddenly buffering is a big problem.
An improvement of sort 4/5
I just recently signed up with the showtime app after a 3 month hiatus from my cable cutting. The app is more refreshed from when I used showtime anytime app, however, the same nagging issue of orientation still persists. Please fix this issue where I can flip my smart phone and the app will fix its orientation also.
*update 5/4/17. One upped the star rating due to quick response from developer and willing to bring an update to current state of the app.
Crashes on launch 1/5
Can't even open
Do NOT pay for this app. It's awful. It worked for one day and since then it won't even open. I've looked for updates, my phone is a 6 so it's not old, I've tried it on my iPad. It simply doesn't work.
Constantly Crashing 1/5
I downloaded the app for the free trial and it worked fine for the first couple days and now the app won't even open. Ive deleted and downloaded the app several times, restarted my phone and Internet connection several times but still no luck. Will not pay for this.
just no. 1/5
app stopped opening 2 days into my free trial. now will never know if it would actually be worth the money or not.
App Doesn't Load 1/5
Sad! Since subscribing for the second time about a month ago (subscribed a couple years back), the app is still freezing multiple times mid-show on the Apple TV and doesn't load at all on the iPhone. Why pay for a service that doesn't work? I give up...time to take my business elsewhere. Again. I thought two times'd be the charm.
Will not open. 1/5
Just updated the app and it will not open.
Lie, this is not free even if you pay for ST! 1/5
I have all the movie channels through AT&T. I would never pay to have them on my iPad. I will go through AT&T.
App is not compatible with a mac computer. Why even make it if it won't work on a mac computer.
Not good for the traveling viewer... 2/5
The app works as advertised when you're using it on the native device. However, if you anticipate using your iphone or ipad in tandem with the official Apple AV Digital adapter, think again. The app explicitly does NOT support this use case.
I use the Apple AV Digital adapter regularly, as I download shows from Netflix to watch in hotel rooms while I'm offline. It's particularly useful when I travel internationally. I simply hook my phone up to the adapter and the adapter to the TV and presto, the TV displays my offline content. Be warned, this setup will NOT work. This is a specific, likely DRM-related, decision made by Showtime and their developers. It's very disappointing.
Many might suggest using AppleTV instead. I have no interest in doing so as I don't want to lug a heavy Apple TV around with me.
Why it's not working 5/5
By Boo bear esraa
Is it not compatible with international or what although I have OSN at my home and I do have show time but it's strange not working
Great App! 5/5
I love being able to watch Homeland and Billions anytime I want!
Update Flaw 2/5
By Great Skate
I just updated the app and now can only access my Watchlist from the home screen only. (The previous version allowed you to access it from any show Info page also). Very annoying! Please fix!
This app allows a free trial but after that charges you the 11 dollars and sends it to your junk mail so you don't know. 2 months later and I had no clue till I went in my junk email. I deleted it from my subscriptions but I just got charged again. A big waist of money and bad quality.
Works when it wants to
Keeps crashing... 2/5
I've been trying to open the app to watch Homeland and it crashes. I deleted the app and then uploaded again. The same issue occurred. FIX THIS! Otherwise, I fail to see why I'm paying for this.
App won't even open! 1/5
I paid my 10.99 yesterday and the app crashes when I try and open it. I even deleted it and downloaded again with the same result. Very disappointed.
Won't even open. Crashes every time.
Constant crashing 2/5
By Hippie Locs
I have had no problems with the app up until recently. every time I try and open it the screen just goes black and brings me to my home page, I have un-downloaded and re-downloaded it and the problem still occurs. Also all my other apps are not crashing it's just this one.
Needs help 3/5
By Kings with Blessed 👑
Should fix the app because it closes on me. Great pictures but app could use fixes.
If you have a slow connection, avoid this 1/5
3.0 mbit per second or better is suggested. If you have slower, like me, all it does is sputter and pause. The popular 'MovieRental' service (NF) works fine.
The best 5/5
By Jam bud
I see a lot of bad reviews for this Showtime app. They must have upgraded it because I think it is great. I have HBO, Netflix, PBS and this Showtime app for streaming on my iPad. The Showtime app is the easiest one to use! I love it! The PBS one is the worst but I need a way to keep up with current news. The HBO one is pretty good and Netflix is Netflix.....😀
Doesn't work 1/5
By Agatha Addington
I am not going to contact help center all the time
Commercials are the only thing that loads 1/5
By Ann in Oakland
This app (on Apple TV) is terrible. An episode of a half hour tv show stalls every 45 seconds or so, making it entirely unwatchable.
AND YET... the ads play perfectly every time. Hmmm. (I currently have 50.7 Mbps download speed, so I know it's not my wifi.)
Keep in mind, I pay for this app, so why can't I have an ad-free viewing experience like most other quality tv apps? Netflix, HBO, etc. C'mon Showtime, this is garbage.
Don't enter your card info 1/5
By Kait q
Don't enter your card info they'll still charge you even if you get rid of it after the 7 day trial!!!
Caution Apple TV users 1/5
I decided to give Showtime a try after I saw a free trial for 7 days. After receiving a notification that the trial was active and a reminder to turn off auto-renew within 7 days to prevent being charged, I was billed a couple days later. After contacting Showtime about the issue they said I had used a free trial 2 years ago in 2015 and they refused to refund my money. Apparently I found it to be a useless and unmemorable service 2 years ago and just as useless today. I found it to have very little worth watching. So exercise caution and don't believe the free trial unless you are positive you have never used Showtime in the past. It will appear all is good, but it is not and you will be billed.
By Jim Jim 311
Complete bull. Got hdmi connection for iPhone 6 to watch on tv. Works with every other app except showtime 🙄 yea not excited to watch my shows on tiny screen
Have to reinstall regularly. Annoying.
By Evan Bacon
figure out persistent sign in 1/5
You know what would be fantastic? If you could figure out how to keep a user logged in. I'm constantly signing in on apple tv. You stream beautifully, I know you can figure out persistence.
I have this app on my iPad and it works fine when I'm watching. I'm not being charged more than I should. I'm on the 7-day free trial.
My problem is that every time I close the app, when I reopen it, it's just a blank black screen. Never loads. Even if I close all other apps and clear my ram. Every time, I have to uninstall and reinstall it.
You can't use it unless you have a cable provider !!even tho you have to pay 10$ a month for the other app it still won't let you log in unless you log in with you're cable provider , well what if I don't have cable !? Stupidest app ever !
It's not letting me leave the free trail thing, I want to cancel it but I can't.
