Downloads need work 2/5
The fact that you can’t watch your downloaded content without a network connection seems to defeat the purpose. This streaming service won’t quite live up to the others if this feature isn’t fixed, as I’m sure I’m not the only one who uses this to watch when unable to get internet service
This application is terrible. I watch shows on my Apple TV often through Showtime. Going on a work trip I decided to try the app. Terrible mistake. Downloaded the app and logged in just fine. Even downloaded several movies for the long flight. NONE of the movies would play correctly. The stuttered and stopped often and the sound and video would be out of sync when they started playing again. I spent and hour going through starting and stopping a movie, force closing the app for get a few more minutes of movie. Eventually the choppy view was too much and I stopped. When I arrived at the hotel and got onto wifi the same problems showed. I thought it might be my device so I opened Netflix, downloaded and movie and turned off wifi. The download played flawlessly. Opened iTunes, another great viewing experience. Tried Showtime app one last time, again terribly unwatchable. Do not waste your time.

Whenever I try to access the app with my mobile device I get a response that the app is offline.
App not reliable 3/5
Quits and discuss cations for no apparent reason.
Absolute garbage 1/5
Zero stars if that was an option. Rarely can watch downloads in airplane mode. App constantly tells me I’m “Offline”, even when experiencing Speedtests in excess of 100mbs, and can’t watch any downloads. What a piece of GARBAGE. Don’t waste your $$$ on Showtime. You won’t be watching anything on your iDevices.
Great app 5/5
Just glad to watch Dexter again on a student account amazing resource and there are a lot of educational documentaries and some such. Great program
By I like Twin Peaks guy
Doesn’t accept more than one device cross-platform - app crashes unless you confine yourself to one device. Help desk polite but ultimately unhelpful. As far as content, many of the selections that are not Showtime-produced can be found on legitimately free platforms. The stuff from the studios is, well, their stuff. Extra star above three for the third Twin Peaks series.
Garbage App 1/5
Somehow this is the only app that can never find the internet. Always gives me the offline message. Delete. Reinstall. Repeat. Day after day. And then I get one small glimmer of hope and it works for a short time. And then back to offline. Can’t find the internet. So disappointing.
I downloaded shows for a long flight and could only watch a few minutes then it would say “can’t connect to showtime”. Same happened to my sister. USELESS. I PAID FOR THIS? I want my money back
GET YOUR ISH TOGETHER 1/5
Fix your app on the PS4. I created 2 separate accounts and neither worked. “Your email is formatted incorrectly”. It most certainly is not.
It’s ok but not at HBO level 3/5
It’s ok there originals are good but there’s not enough for me. There is not a coming soon neither that I know of.
Lagging, sudden errors, the worst app for watching 1/5
I’ve never had this many issues with all other apps for watching tv shows/movies combined. The app lags, the sound doesn’t match the picture. And the app would say “network error” all of a sudden when there is absolutely no problem with my wifi. Even with downloaded shows, the app still lags. Will not be renewing my subscription. I’m better off paying for the show on Amazon.
Could not watch move I was in middle of watching and screen blinked app off. Went back in an only get a black screen when I hit play. No use finishing free trial to watch a black screen. FIX YOUR APP!!!
Best advertising I’ve ever seen 5/5
I love the way they advertise. Especially yellowjackets
Very good so far! 4/5
By Jovanny nicasio
Very sharp and high quality video, a lot of options of movies and tv shows no complaint at all.
Came for the boxing 5/5
I subscribed to Showtime for the boxing, and the app is one if the better apps I use for streaming the sport, plus it has a lot more!
App is unusable 1/5
By Tyree Mack
The app is utter garbage I can’t watch shows without the app glitching. I download movies to watch offline but somehow they can’t play due to a network error. And when I can watch the downloaded content the audio doesn’t line up with the video. It will skip and just cut scenes
Okay content. Terrible app. 2/5
Save your money, showtime is not worth the subscription price. It’s barely worth $5/month but it’s definitely more than that
The cancellation flow is tricky 1/5
I tried to cancel the subscription before my billing day, and thought I succeeded since the 30 day free trial ads came out on the screen and also top right corner like what it did before I subscribed. But noooo, it turns out I have to find and click the very small line of “no I still want to cancel” on the 30 day free trail page to finalize my cancellation. Learnt that after I got charged today. And I feel getting tricked which is not a good feeling. I wanted to cancel in the first place because of some tech preference such as the ui and recommendation doesn’t serve well to me but now I just feel like I don’t want to use this service ever again.
Waste of Money! 1/5
By Ali Raza Buriro
There are too many better options available than this platform and I just wasted my money on subscription, honestly totally worthless. Hulu, Paramount, Netflix are one of my favorites all the Time.
Worst streaming app ever 1/5
This app is awful. There are hardly any trailers on content, it is dated, constantly logs you out, not great content, and just stinks. I’m surprised they haven’t made any effort to update or modernize the layout and performance of the app over the years. I go to this app as a last resort constantly. It’s a shame.
I got charged twice per month just because I signed in for the membership on Roku then I had to sign in for general online or their website because another place didn’t have roku. So be careful with showtime.
The App tough 5/5
By Chris "The Hurricane" Banks
I love boxing and the movie selection. More original series and you got Netflix beat. 3.99/month for 6 clutch like Kobe in the 4th.
Good content, slow downloads 3/5
Downloading shows offline is incredibly slow, I wish they would optimize it better.
literally terrible 1/5
By Guadalupe did not write this
don’t waste your time or money on showtime it’s quite literally the worst streaming app ever. why am i receiving a notification saying “Network Error” on a downloaded episode. i took the time to go in and download each episode since i knew i wouldn’t have wifi for a certain amount of time and now youre telling me im not even able to stream the episodes i downloaded? one, your episodes take centuries to download despite how short they are. two, even after waiting those centuries for your downloaded content they’re not even gonna work. most definitely not continuing my subscription
All of my downloaded shows do not play back properly . The sound is off . Very frustrating .
Bugs after bugs 1/5
By Some user233
Playing tv series and the app crashes every once a while plus the sound and video are not synchronized ALL the time
Nothing new 1/5
By dude ckicky
So there’s never nothing new everything is old played out over priced
App is glitched 1/5
Problems with watching downloaded videos, it glitches once every few minutes. After a while it fails completely.
Se pueden ver películas en español? 1/5
Porfabor que alguien me diga si se pueden ver las películas en español! Se los agradecería mucho
Great app 5/5
By Deus_Ex_Machina 93
I haven’t experienced any issues unlike some other streaming apps. QA does a great job 👍
Great app and easy access and I appreciate the help I appreciate for 5/5
We can get the girls to see what we are looking at for tomorrow but we will see you tomorrow if we are going out there for the night or dinner tonight and we will go back to the hotel room for the weekend if we can go in a bit and see what happens
Not sure what app Y’ALL are using 1/5
Maybe I’m doing something wrong but nothing in this app plays except ads. You try to load a movie and it either starts to play and immediately exits back to the screen with the description or after about three tries it will look like its gonna play and then load an ad and then take you back to previously-mentioned screen. People work too hard for their money to be being robbed by Showtime - if you’re unable or unwilling to provide the content people are paying for, a refund is in order. Theft is a criminal offense.
Every time I use the App on my Apple TV it makes me go through the activating process and I have use my phone to go to the website and put the activation code in it say the activation was successful but when I go to play something it says I have to activate it.
It plays on my phone, but not on the Apple TV app.
I'm canceling it, it's not worth the aggravation.
By Duck duck fan
Showtime has never disappoints.
App Review 5/5
I absolutely love all of the content on Showtime some of my favorite shows are on this app. I do wish however the “lag” or “pausing” that occurs sometimes would be addressed. This is not an internet issue and no other apps I utilize do this.
I’ve logged in, activated my device , over and over and over. trying to watch george and tammy, it kicked me out. now having to log back in again, are you kidding me. as soon as i watch this series, prob will have to watch on my phone it’s the best way it seems, i’m cancelling. pathetic.
By Samie and bo-bo
Dated App 1/5
By Great when it worked
- Need the ability to set up multiple profiles v’s none. All other streaming apps have this feature; Netflix, HBO etc.
- Need the ability to skip intro and recap when watching a series just like Netflix, HBO
* Device used Apple TV

Ziwe is amazing 5/5

Not Bad 4/5
It would be nice to have an option to skip intro, and also to skip forward and backward a few seconds instead of having to FFx1 or x2 or x3 etc.
No CCs 1/5
I’m hard of hearing and the app can never seem to display CCs. Bummer.
