Dish gets Showtime Anytime… will Sling TV be next?

Showtime Anytime – the TV Everywhere offering from the CBS-owned cable net — is now available to authenticated Dish customers who subscribe to the cable channel.

Subscribers get unlimited on-demand access to Showtime content as well as the live broadcast of the network’s feeds from the east and west coasts.

Showtime fare includes, Homeland, The Affair, Shameless, Masters of Sex along with movies, sports, documentaries and specials.

Content can be watched on computers, tablets, mobile devices, and a variety of streaming devices and game consoles.

Dish said Showtime on-demand content also soon will be added to broadband-connected Dish set-top-boxes, on DishAnywhere.com and the Dish AnywhereM app for tablets and smartphones.

Of course, cord cutters, nevers and shavers all want to know when and if Showtime Anywhere eventually will be available on Dish’s Cloud TV offering, Sling TV.

Showtime Anytime also has been rumored to be following parent CBS – and competitor HBO Go – online in 2015.

Stay tuned.
