What is Showtime, and how can I watch it?

Showtime is one of the biggest American TV channels in the US. You can access their wealth of fantastic shows and movies through cable and satellite subscriptions.

But where to watch Showtime shows if you don't have cable or satellite? Showtime Anytime has got you covered. This is their standalone subscription service, where you can log in using your cable or satellite subscription account, or you can pay for it independently.

Showtime’s streaming service provides all the great shows and viewing you’d expect. You can view them using the website or by a range of apps on supported devices.

You can’t fail to recognize the household names Showtime has brought to TV viewers all over the world. If you choose to access the US schedule and its original content directly, you’ll have access to all of the shows and movies that aren’t available in your country.

Showtime is famous for bringing us shows such as Homeland, Dead Like Me, Ray Donovan, and Shameless. If you’re looking for movies, there are so many of your favourites to watch: Back to the Future, The King’s Speech and Se7en, to name just a few.

If you were hoping to find a way to watch all of Showtime’s amazing content without the expense of a satellite or cable subscription, streaming Showtime through their standalone subscription service is just the thing you’re looking for.

How can I watch Showtime with StreamLocator?

Showtime requires viewers to be in the US to provide access to their channels or streaming services. StreamLocator provides you with a virtual location in the USA, and with it, access to the content on the Showtime servers.

From now on, it doesn’t matter where you are in the world, with StreamLocator, you’ll never have to miss another episode of your favourite Showtime shows.

No complicated settings or software installation required

We understand that viewers want the simplest way possible to access international streaming content. With the most typical workarounds, that means downloading and installing software on every device you use to view it.

Our system doesn’t require any of that. There’s no software to install, and there are no DNS settings to amend or additional profiles to install. You don’t even have to remember to turn the service on every time you need it—all of that is managed automatically for StreamLocator users.

It works with your existing WiFi, and it takes care of business at the router for every one of your Internet-enabled devices. It creates a virtual location for your Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Chromecast. If you’re watching via your Android or Apple smartphones and tablets, it takes care of those too—as well as your online games consoles. It really has got every eventuality covered.

It doesn’t affect your Internet speed or any of your day-to-day online activities. You can connect to it with as many devices as you like—each one connecting to a different international service with StreamLocator providing a different virtual location for every one. It’s that versatile.

How to watch Showtime from outside the USA

Showtime demands that its viewers are US-based. For anyone trying to access their streaming service from outside the USA, they set up blocks using geolocation technology to spot users who aren’t where they’re supposed to be.

VPN and Smart DNS have been around for quite some time, and they’ve been the most typical methods to access Showtime around the blockades. If you’re going to watch Showtime from outside the USA, you’re going to need one of those or something just like them.

How to register for Showtime from outside the USA

For a standalone Showtime account, the simplest way is to subscribe through the Apple App Store or on Google Play. You’ll need to create an American account and pay using an American credit card or payment facility.

For those without access to an American credit card, you can buy US specific App Store, iTunes or Google Play Gift Cards that provide you with a code to redeem and add to your account.

Another way to access Showtime is to buy one of the cable-cutting skinny-bundles that include Showtime as part of the package. You might have similar issues with your payment method, but each service will have its own rules and regulations, and workarounds.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch Showtime from outside the USA?

VPN and Smart DNS have been the most popular methods to get around the geo-blockades put in place by the streaming services. However, as the service providers become more aware of the most popular services, they’re finding new ways to add them to their blacklists.

Due to this, the service you’ve been using for the past few years might suddenly stop working, or it might work great for one channel but not for another.

That’s where StreamLocator comes into its own. It communicates with the channel’s servers to find out which is the best way to access its content. Because it uses a combination of different technologies, it can choose the best way for every service, creating your virtual location in the most preferred method.

How to unblock Showtime

With a StreamLocator subscription and smart router box, unblocking Showtime is easy.

Our smart hub plugs into any open port of your WiFi router. There are a few simple steps to activate your account, but with those taken care of, all you have to do is to switch over the new WiFi network—STREAMLOCATOR—that will have appeared amongst your usual options.

And that’s it—everything else is managed automatically. We told you it was easy.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch Showtime for free?

Sadly, that’s one thing we can navigate. You’ll still have to pay for a Showtime subscription to watch their programs.
