Showtime and Apogee have inked a partnership that paves the way for certain colleges and universities to make the Showtime Anytime app available to college and university students.
Apogee said it will include Showtime Anytime at no added charge for any school that adds Showtime to their video offering. Schools that support the offer will enable students to authenticate themselves on the app using their existing school credentials.
