Jun. 08, 2015
NEW YORK (AP) — Showtime said Monday its online streaming service will be available through Roku and through Sony's PlayStation Vue cloud TV service.
The TV network said Wednesday that it will offer an online streaming service for customers who don't want to pay for cable and had already disclosed that its shows will be available on all Apple devices. Its shows will be available starting July 12 and will cost $10.99 per month.
Showtime is owned by CBS Corp.
With more and more people watching TV shows over the Internet, networks and cable channels including HBO and CBS have created stand-alone streaming services as a way to reach people who don't subscribe to traditional cable packages that have dozens of channels.
