Dish Serves Up Showtime Anytime

Dish Network has become the latest major MVPD to open access to Showtime Anytime, Showtime Networks’ authenticated TV Everywhere service that features a late of on-demand fare and access to Showtime’s live East and West coast feeds.

Dish and Showtime opened access to the app on Tuesday (March 3). That comes roughly three months after Dish and CBS announced a retransmission deal that provided Dish with the rights for CBS, CBS Sports Network, Smithsonian Channel, TVGN, and Showtime, including Showtime’s TVE and video-on-demand services. 

Credentialed Dish subs can stream live feeds and VOD fare from Showtime on the Web at or via the Showtime Anytime app on iOS and Android devices, the Apple TV, Roku platform, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Amazon Fire TV box and Fire TV Stick. Showtime Anytime is also optimized to work with the Google Chromecast.

Additionally, Showtime VOD programming will soon become available on broadband-connected Dish set-top boxes, the site and the DISH Anywhere app for tablets and smartphones, the companies said.
