Showtime announced via their web site today that they are joining the standalone streaming market as HBO did earlier in the year. Eschewing the rebranding undertaken by HBO NOW, the Showtime streaming service will be known simply as Showtime and will launch on iOS devices plus personal computers this fall.
All Showtime content present and past will be made available with the service. Upcoming high profile Showtime projects include the return of The Affair, Masters of Sex, and Homeland in addition to the controversial return of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks.
The service will cost $10.99 a month after a 30-day free trial period. Those interested can sign up at Showtime’s website for further information and notice of the platform’s launch.
