Hulu, Showtime partner for streaming service
June 24, 2015
Subscribers of Internet entertainment service Hulu will soon have the ability to add the Showtime service to their Hulu subscription and stream on a wide range of the most popular Internet-connected streaming devices.
Starting in early July, Showtime will become the first premium service to be offered to Hulu’s nearly nine million subscribers nationwide. Hulu will make Showtime available for purchase prior to the highly-anticipated July 12th premieres of the critically-acclaimed hit series Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex.
New and existing Hulu subscribers will be able to sign up for Showtime on Hulu.com. Subscribers will be able seamlessly to access Showtime through the Hulu app and stream programming on Android devices (phones, tablets and TV devices), iOS devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod touch), Apple TV, Xbox One, Nintendo Wii and Wii U, Roku players and Roku TV models, PlayStation4 (PS4), PlayStation 3 (PS3), Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, Chromecast, and the latest LG, Samsung and Vizio televisions and LG, Samsung and Sony Blu-ray players, as well as online at www.hulu.com, with more devices coming in the future.
Hulu subscribers will have unlimited on demand access to every season of award-winning Showtime original series, as well as access to new episodes as they premiere, along with documentary and sports programming, and hundreds of hours of movies, all commercial-free, anywhere in the US.
At launch, Hulu will offer Showtime across more devices than any other Showtime distributor over the Internet. Subscribers will also be able to watch the east and west coast feeds of Showtime live on Hulu.com. Showtime is the only premium streaming service to offer live East and West Coast feeds through all of its Internet distributors.
