Showtime's standalone service arrives on the Apple TV

Showtime has launched its standalone streaming service on the Apple TV. This gives you complete access to Showtime's movies, shows, and more without needing a cable subscription.

In addition to on-demand programming like TV series and movies, Showtime allows you to watch live video, showing you what's currently running on Showtime East and Showtime West. You can also see a schedule of upcoming movies and series.

The service comes with a 30-day free trial to let you test the service out. Following the trial, Showtime will cost you $10.99 per month, less than what competing service HBO Now will run you.

You should find Showtime sitting on your home screen the next time you turn on your Apple TV.
