How can a big company like Showtime have such a terrible app? Why can you only “add” individual episodes to your list and not an entire show so you can easily go to it to watch your next episode? And when you do go to the show, you can’t tell which episodes you have watched already without clicking on them to see if they have a red bar or not. I’m SO disappointed and surprised by how inconvenient this app is to use! And how does it have so many high ratings?
Showtime some Time 2/5

STUPID APP DOESNT WORK 1/5
By I HATE THE SHOWTIME APP
Ease of Use 5/5
By Dootsee Dee
Among the generation of viewers 60 plus years old who also just stumbled their first grocery store pantry app for cooking.
Crashes Upon Opening 1/5
I just downloaded the app for the first time and I’m already about to delete it. I can’t even open the app without it crashing, therefore it’s useless. Do better.
Keeps crashing every time I open the app 1/5
Can’t even get it to open 1/5
Click on the app and the dust settles and the showtime banner pops up and it crashes.
Worst Streaming Service App 1/5
By Big Techs
I have never enjoyed using an app for a streaming service less than I do this one. The interface is useless when watching a series and you are tying to pickup where you left off. The way the My List portion works is useless and makes you constantly search for the series you are watching to find what you are looking for. Recently watched series need to be available on the first page. It also frequently starts you over at the beginning of an episode you have partially watched. It always rotates the wrong way when you begin playing. There is also no button to jump forward in specific increments. Absolutely awful!
Erase of access to shows and varietal availability make this app work...
Not working 1/5
It won’t let me open the app I have restarted my phone deleted the app and reinstalled it and still won’t let me open the app
Awful app 1/5
There is no “forward 15 seconds” button. There is no “skip recap” button. After each episode it makes me watch a 30 second commercial of their other programming.
I open the app and 2 seconds later it crashes. This happens every time I open it.

Great TV service but terrible app 2/5
By John Moni
This is app is complete garbage and it design is terrible. It is impossible to go to where you left off, in fact I use Apple TV app to play my episode. Navigation throughout the is very clunky and hard to find. The suggestion is very uninteresting and is very repetitive like I don’t like those shows. Showtime in general is quality and it has some amazing shows but this app needs work. Complete redesign would be welcoming but great service.
Quite honestly I believe the $10.99 monthly subscription cost is too overpriced for the content showtime carries. I expected to find more recent films however most of the content is outdated and only specific TV series seem to be updated regularly. It appears the primary goal of showtime, presented through it’s content variety, is to re-run old content indefinitely yet still charge as if newer shows and movies are constantly being added. I would 10/10 recommend going to HBO or even Netflix for a larger variety of newer, more recent content. Showtime should stick to live TV and live TV alone until they can figure out what a streaming service is meant to be.
Love the Affair 5/5
I can’t stop wAtching
Good stuff! 5/5
By el chido SM
Good content and boxing matches.
Do better 1/5
I love the shows on showtime, but their app is so annoying to use. It’s always glitching. It’s not East to maneuver.
Not enough 1/5
1st. not enough tv series choices. Very limited
2nd . To find a movie takes forever and they don’t provide all the choices you can watch. I seriously had to google search movies on showtime. Just to show me movie that you have to type in to see..!!! How does that make sense !
Scam don’t download 1/5
This app is a fraudulent misleading platform I have subscribed to a 30 days free trial on September 23 2019 they charged my card on October 14 2019 and now my account is frozen can’t download load any update for they misleading fausse advertising I would like to be contacted by support team to rectify this matter totally horrible will never refer anyone to showtime.
App crashes 90% of the time!!! 1/5
Not sure if I'm the only person to experience this but this app freezes when you open it. I can't get past the "Showtime" logo at the beginning without it freezing . Updating the app has not fixed the issue. Considering this is a paid service this is simply unacceptable.
Completely useless 1/5
Won’t even let me log on after I paid and entered my email/password. Complete rid off. Avoid this service if I were you.
search menu 1/5
I cannot type anything in the search menu because there isn’t a keyboard that shows when I’m trying to do a search
App crashes before logo shows up. 1/5
After I signed into my account, it crashes every time before the logo animation was played.
MORE FEATURES PLEASE 3/5
Please provide more flexibility on advancing and rewinding - both forward and backward, like in 10 or 15 second intervals.
No Chrome Cast? 3/5
I’ve had this app for a couple of years but unfortunately, it no longer recognizes my chrome cast. Due to this and the lack of “knock it out of the ballpark” content, I will most likely cancel this subscription. Not really worth spending $15? A month simply to watch shameless.
App is buggy 1/5
Every time I attempt to open the showtime app it will not allow me to get past the opening animation I’ve tried deleting it completely and re downloaded it and still hasn’t work complete let down
The App keeps crashing 2/5
I just downloaded the app and was excited about using it but it kept crashing and didn’t open once. So disappointing. I like showtime on my tv.
Does not connect to my smart tv 2/5
I get a blue screen that says “hang on a sec”, yet it never connects.
Literally just downloaded and signed up. Right after I create an account, it times out and then crashes. Can’t open it without it crashing. This is a stupid excuse for an app and I can’t believe Spotify and Hulu bundled with it. There is this bundle where college students can get Hulu, Spotify, and showtime together for cheap, and I already have my Spotify and Hulu activated. That’s the only reason I downloaded it in the first place. Showtime hasn’t even hinted about a place yet where I could activate that.
Full Screen? 4/5
Why can’t I get full screen when using this app on my IPad? I can with the HBO app. Has an “expand” icon on lower right.
Okay, but there are better choices 3/5
I’ve subscribed to Showtime in the past to watch a few shows and then leave. I like some of the series, “The Loudest Voice” was good and I’m looking forward to starting the Kirsten Dunst series. Some of the documentaries are interesting but you need a better movie selection. “City on a Hill” is probably a good series but I couldn’t get past the profanity and racial slurs and stopped watching in the first 5 minutes of episode 1, I don’t know why it isn’t possible to tell a story without every other word being a curse word. Cops probably do speak like that in Boston, but to me it was excessive. The Roku app is a little confusing, especially the fast forward and rewind, and I’d like to see some “for you” recommendations similar to what the other streaming apps use. The live TV feed is a nice feature. However, I have trouble justifying the $11 a month membership over time because the selection is too limited. The streaming quality is good, and I’ve never experienced any buffering or technical problems.
They deleted my review?? 1/5
By Twitch user
THIS APP IS HORRIBLE!!! They have deleted my past reviews and never update their selections! THEY ONLY HAVE STUFF 2013 and back
Every time I use this app on my television, I have to log in. It’s pretty annoying that I could be watching something and I’ll hit pause or rewind and it kicks me off and I have to sign in again. Literally, every single time.
poorly laid out app 1/5
Showtime has lots of great selection however this app has to be as non user friendly as possible. no “continue watching” or “skip intro” feature. it doesn’t even show you the episodes you’ve watched of a show when scrolling through the thumbnail screen. if you like having to spend 5 minutes waiting for the app to get past the initial opening screen, search for the show you want bc it definetly will not have it there to be easily accessed like any other media app, then this is the app for you.
Won’t let me login 4/5
When I which from my iPhone to my iPad it won’t let me login
I like it very much
Will not open 1/5
Have deleted and redownloaded several times. The app will not load past initial welcome screen or screen is just black.
Great app 5/5
It’s great how it has different tv shows on demand.
Nothing but a black screen? 1/5
Just got the app with my Spotify student bundle and when I click on the app it’s nothing but a blank black screen. I waited a few minutes to see if it was just loading but nothing happened. I’ve also re-downloaded the app and still nothing. Can’t really rate what I can’t use.
Doesn’t work with iPhone XR 1/5
I can’t skip parts due to my phone being an iPhone XR. The slider is too small and my phone thinks I’m switching apps
Practically useless on an iPad 1/5
The profile remains down the center of the screen preventing you from selecting and playing a chosen episode.
Showtime app 5/5
This app is awesome. My gf and love it! It is very convenient to watch on the go!!! I highly recommend .
No casting option 1/5
What happened to the cast option.. I can’t google cast my show
30 seconds behind the times 2/5
By Bacon cheeseburger
When I miss a line, I don’t wish to go back a half a minute and sit through thirty seconds, to finally get to the line I missed. The app needs a back 'button' that is not thirty seconds, and a forward one as well — like other, more intuitive apps. Love the programming, though.
App freezes when it opens 1/5
By Swag 367288(:478379
The showtime app always freezes during the opening animation. Also, on the web version I can’t watch anything. I continuously get the error that video is not available at this time.
