Where is e option for cable providers 1/5
There isn’t an option to use your cable provider on this app. It makes no sense that I can’t sign in and watch this through chrome and have to lay when I have an account
Shameless S8 1/5
I ONLY subscribed to watch season 8 of Shameless. Now the entire season is missing!
Expires when 3/5
Would be so much better if you could please add dates to when each episode expires.
Ehhh Okay... 3/5
App could be designed better. Navigation is key! Better navigation and easier search would up the rating a bit. Also, Netflix NEVER makes me watch ads or trailers for other shows! That is super annoying, especially with a paid account. Show and movie selection is pretty good but not enough to keep the subscription 24/7. Just use it during the seasons that your shows are on.
I downloaded this app almost six times and every time I go in the app. The page will no load. It always says please try again later. Will not download app again.
Are you kidding right now?!???? 1/5
I have encountered some bad apps, but I can truly say this has got to be the WORST APP ever created! If I had a dollar for every brain cell used in creating this worthless piece of crap, I would have ONE DOLLAR! Seriously you guys need to go back to the drawing board and put more effort into making your app usable!!🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️
Keeps shutting down 1/5
I tried to use the app on the 7 day trial to see if I wanted to keep it. It keeps shutting down while casting after only 2-3 minuets of streaming then it restricts restating after 3 attempts. To put it simply... it’s no Netflix. Also most of the movies/series are old.
Crashes my chromecast 2/5
By Samuel Perrino
Still has problems casting to chromecast! Fix this! I’m paying!
Chromcast streaming terrible 1/5
Simply unwatchable. Constantly stops and go, stop and go. The only way to watch shows is disconnecting using Chromcast to my 60 inch TV and all gather around my IPAD mini to watch it - uninterrupted. Not sure how long I can take this.
I got the free first month to watch a few episodes and then deleted this app off my phone but still get charger $10 every month even though I haven’t even watched anything since a couple of months ago?
Terrible So Far 2/5
By Kel Foster
Every time I close the app it will "stop casting" on my cheomecast. Also, no "continue watching" option makes this a slap in the face. I will not pay money for this app until this is fixed. That should've been the FIRST thing your team invested time in. And you dont even have an option where you can start where you left off on a series. Totally ridiculous. Every other streaming app (Netflix, Hulu) have never had this issue. If this isn't fixed, I'll make sure to tell everyone I know not to waste their time.
NO NEW SHOW UPDATES!! 1/5
By Tasha Poe
I agreed to pay $10.99 a month because i wanted to watch SMILF, SHAMELESS, and THE CHI but how come THE CHI and SMILF shows have no new episodes on here!!??? I will be canceling and recommending people not to down load this app ever! Taking my money for nothing
EVERY time I’m watching a show or movie it stops an loads, I will be watching a new episode of a show an it always kicks me off, this app is terrible an I’m canceling my showtime subscription because what’s the point in paying 11$ a month when I can never even watch a full episode without it kicking me off or stoping to load 10 times during the show.
logo stays on screen 2/5
By Dest 1534545
The Showtime logo and words "ready to cast" stay on the screen the whole time. i am streaming from an iphone to chromecast on my t.v. and now it signed me out and when i sign back in it is telling me to sign up for the membership but i already have one... needs some work.
I won’t continue my sub 1/5
1. LET ME ROTATE MY SCREEN... please.
2. Add a ‘Keep Watching’ feature.
I have been reading reviews and these problems have been brought up before, and a while ago too. I’m not a tech person at all, but it seems like every other app has figured out how to do these things, so you’d think they would’ve fixed it by now.
Wow I contact support and they were no help. I finally get into the app myself, and even with WiFi on its running really slow or it’s not wanting to play. There’s no point on paying for this if it’s not going to work half the time.
Showtime logo & chrome cast info stays on screen 2/5
As much as I love watching Showtime, I do not want to see your logo in the middle of my TV screen. Chromecast info is also visible on screen but at least it has a little transparency.
Having issues 1/5
Name and casting is staying on blocking screen. Update this glitch please.
Fix the chromecast issue! 1/5
Similar to many other reviewers, the Showtime header will not go away when I’m casting from my phone to the TV. It is so annoying to watch something with a giant logo and other text right in the middle of the screen.
Poorly designed App!!!! 3/5
Great selection of tv/movies however the app is very poorly designed. Cumbersome trying to navigate but the worst thing is there’s no option to continue viewing shows you’ve been watching. In addition, say you’re binge watching a tv series, it doesn’t tell you which episodes you’ve already watched! And there’s a button to rewind 30 seconds but nothing to fast forward 30 seconds!
Worked good for a few weeks now it doesn’t 1/5
Paid to be able to watch and was too busy over the holiday. Sat down to catch up on our show and the “SHOWTIME ready to cast” won’t go away. Ugh! Tried everything to fix it. Very unhappy right now. Finally got time without interruption of kids and your stupid app isn’t working.
Needs work 2/5
One major problem: locking my iOS 11 phone with this app in the foreground will drain the battery to empty.
One annoying problem: I can’t figure out how to resume watching my current or next episode in a series in a simple way. You have to dig for “My List”, which sometimes has it. Otherwise scroll through all series to find the one you want, find the season, find the right episode.
One dumb problem: The app only orients one way during viewing - power/headphone jacks on the left I think. It won’t rotate to let you put them on the right. Minor annoyance, but goofy.
Sign ins are required FAR too often 1/5
Every time I use the app, I’m forced to sign in again. It’s very frustrating and this is the only streaming app I use where this is a problem.
Showtime and cast logo stay 1/5
The showtime and cast logo continues to stay on the the screen while the movie or show plays. Horrible app
“Casting...” won’t go away 2/5
I’m trying to chromecast the content from the app and the showtime logo with “casting...” wont leave the screen and overlays the content. I contacted help thru chat support and they suggested rebooting solution that I already had tried and failed. Then they said they would have to get info from me for more research. I don’t have time for that. It’s not my problem. Get your testing staff to test it. That’s what they are for. I see I’m not the only one with this issue per the reviews. In the meantime, I’m cancelling my subscription to showtime because I can only watch via casting the app.
Logo Stuck on Screen 2/5
The showtime logo is stuck on the screen while casting.
Ready to cast logo stays on while watching on google Chromecast 1/5
Very annoying!!! Showtime logo with ready to cast below it. Don’t know what to do. Pretty much useless.
Logo stuck on screen 2/5
“Showtime Anytime ready to cast” stuck on screen during Chromecast. Tried deleting and reinstalling, restarting phone, rebooting Chromecast.
Official response is to go to the help page. Help page does not address this issue.
“Ready to cast” won’t go away 2/5
Everytime I try to stream on to my chrome cast, the Showtime logo and “Ready to cast” or “Now casting....” won’t disappear. Tried deleting and re-downloading, even rebooting my chrome cast, and nothing changed. Almost feeling the need to cancel my subscription due to the annoyance of not being able to even watch what I want yet still paying.
If I’m paying for something I expect it to work. It’s not ok to go into the app and have it experience issues. If you are experience issues I expect communication before the fact. Just as you would let me know that my payment is due or didn’t go through, I expect the same in return.
Ready To Cast logo remains visible during movie 1/5
Suddenly experiencing an issue with a bug in the system where the “Showtime Ready-To-Cast” logo remains visible on the screen once the program begins to play. Further examination of my iPhone screen reveals that while this unusual bug occurs, the program timer displays only a few minutes of time remaining. Yet, when the red line reaches the end, the movie and/or program continues. I have reset my iPhone, removed and reinstalled the Showtime app while clearing the history snd data of the iPhone as well but to no avail...the issue remains as described above. It’s ridiculous. I only rated the app a 1 because there is no “zero” or “minus” rating.
As I sit here watching a movie, the SHOWTIME logo is in the dead center of my tv screen. Anyone else using a chromecast etc?
Does not display to TV with an HDMI Adapter 1/5
Sad that you do not support TV display like Netflix, HBO, Amazon Video, YouTube, Hulu, ...
I will not be forced to re-sign in everyday 1/5
I love Showtime and tried it 3 days ago signing up via iTunes. I have been asked to sign in every single day. I will not be doing that and canceled my free 7 day trial after those 3 days. This is ridiculous.
Don’t have much else to say about the app, just the above. Sorry but fix the app if you want me as a customer.
Unless this constant signing in is how it’s supposed to work which would be unlike my HBO and every other tv service I have.
I pay way to much for this to never work. Fix your issues it's annoying as hell.
Needs a lot of work and no iPhone X 1/5
First of all I find it crazy that you guys advertise in your pictures that you’re using an iPhone X but yet the app does not support iPhone X properly. I pay like $10 a month for this app so I do expect updates and it still does not support iPhone X screen size. And it’s a shame that you guys show it in your pictures using an iPhone 10 and second the app crashes all the time or constantly needs to be forced closed and reopened and it is very laggy. Come on get with the program or I’m canceling
No want the service showtime 1/5
By no want service the showtime
No want service the showtime
needs improvements 3/5
great app just needs two minor improvements, would be great if you can rotate the screen so it wouldn't be in one fixed position. Second thing would be to be able to zoom in so you can use the full screen on iPhone X
Won’t let me use apple cord 3/5
By I love MB! <3
I have a Apple cord that plays everything even starz let me use it to watch my movies and shows but not showtime I pay almost $100 for this cord and $11 a month for a app that won’t let me use my stuff.
Download option for offline viewing is completely useless and video skips. Learn from Amazon Prime and Netflix how to build great apps.
KEEP WATCHING Feature Needed 2/5
By Clan builder
The shows are great but what hack didn't add a keep watching feature that remembers what episode u r on in each show. Every other app out there has this. It is integral to user experience. It is like the apples in apple pie. This needs to get fixed asap or it isn't worth my continued subscription.
Great content terrible execution 2/5
I stream Netflix and Hulu just fine. This app keeps stopping to buffer its even worse on my PC. Also the app is available everywhere EXCEPT PS4 LOL if you want 10.99 you're going to have to do better!!!!
Useless app 1/5
By Aly&Ry's Dad
Can’t get past the opening page. It has been unable to “reach showtime at the moment” for days now.
By Ryan Brow
If you stop a movie and go back to watch it at a later time, you can’t restart it from the beginning. You can only play it from where you left off.
Purchased worked one time . Stinks will not open 1/5
Constantly disconnects 2/5
Every time you pause what you’re watching and open up another app, the Showtime app disconnects from what you were watching when you switch back to it. You then have to connect to WiFi and start again. This has been going on for months and you’d think they would have fixed it by now.
Showtimes not special 1/5
By RCW special
Showtimes not special they think they are I'm a truck driver other apps like CBS and Watch through my HDMI adapter to my iPhone showtime won't let you do this because they think they're special
Parental Controls 3/5
Please add the ability to hide “after hours” inappropriate content when setting parental controls.
Can’t even log in 1/5
I’ve been trying to log in and register for almost a week now. And every time I try it says “server error” and the app crashes. So disappointing. Was really hoping to be to recap shameless before the new season comes out in a few weeks 😭
