Showtime Networks has just announced that its standalone streaming service is now available on Microsoft’s Xbox One console (via The Verge). The OTT service for cord-cutters initially launched two years ago on a variety of other platforms from Apple, Sony and Roku, and it’s good to see it finally land on the Xbox One in addition to the pre-existing Showtime Anytime app (a similar offering for subscribers of the Showtime television service).
Xbox One owners can try the standalone OTT service for seven days before paying the $10.99 monthly subscription. The catalog includes entire seasons of Homeland, Billions, Ray Donovan, The Affair, Shameless, I’m Dying Up Here, the brand new season of the cult-classic TV show Twin Peaks, in addition to many other movies, TV shows and sports programming.
