Showtime Anytime review (Android)

Showtime Anytime review (Android) Reviewed by on . Rating: 5

While a majority of cable subscribers are familiar with HBO’s on-demand mobile service HBOGO, fewer know about Showtime’s similar experience. Dubbed Showtime Anytime, it’s designed to let customers watch movies, exclusive series, and other content.

Note: You must subscribe to Showtime Anytime as part of your cable provider’s bill.

showtime_anytime (7)Looking very much like its website counterpart, Showtime Anytime for Android has a glossy appearance with blacks and reds. If you’re familiar with the online version or those of the Kindle Fire and iOS then you’ll learn this one quickly.

Hopping right in you’ll find the home screen highlights a few movies and shows. Slide to the right and you can drill down a bit more and find something more specific. We appreciate the manner in which Showtime breaks things into categories like series, movies, sports, comedy, and more. Slide to the right one more and you can actually watch live Showtime programming on your phone. Yes, you can cast this to a Chromecast-connected TV, too.

As you might expect, the top bar of the app always features the Chromecast icon. Users can toggle back and forth as to whether they watch on the phone or the TV.

If you have a list of shows queued up for watching at a later date you can access it directly within the app. Want to create one? Nice and easy.

Other tidbits we liked in the app is a “Recently Watched” section and the full menu of options under Settings. Parents can breathe easy knowing they’ve restricted adult content or filtered for a certain age group. Likewise, you can also adjust the way closed captions appear on screen.

Casting is convenient because users are not confined to the app itself. On Android, at least, you start you program and you’re free to go elsewhere. There’s also a handy drop down in the notification/status tray to pause programming or open the app.

If you have a Showtime subscription as part of your cable experience then you’re strongly encouraged to download the Showtime Anytime app.
