Showtime is an American premium television network that is owned by ViacomCBS Domestic Media Networks, and is the flagship property of Showtime Networks. Showtime's programming principally includes theatrically released pictures and original television series, along with boxing and mixed martial arts matches, occasional stand-up comedy specials, and made-for-TV movies.

It’s a traditional subscription video on demand service which features VOD library content and live feeds of Showtime's linear television services. Showtime is also sold independently of traditional and over-the-top multichannel video programming distributors through Apple TV Channels and Amazon Video Channels.

The Showtime streaming service offers a back catalog of episodes of various past and present Showtime original series (with new episodes of Showtime original series being made available for streaming the same day as their original broadcast on the main linear Showtime channel), feature films and documentaries, as well as sports events and analysis programs. Subscriptions are also available over Amazon Prime (Amazon Channels), Hulu, The Roku Channel, and Apple TV (Apple TV Channels) as add-ons.

Showtime has become known in recent years for the network's original television programs, the most popular of which include the crime drama Dexter, the dark comedy-drama Weeds, family dramas Ray Donovan and Shameless and the drama/thriller series Homeland

Unlike other services under the Showtime brand (Showtime On Demand and Showtime Anytime), the streamer is a standalone service that does not require an American cable TV subscription. However, if you want to stream its content and happen to be in the UK, Australia, Europe, or Asia, you have to use Smart DNS to prevent your location from being detected as the service is geo-blocked outside the US.

How to watch Showtime outside US with Getflix Smart DNS

Smart DNS is a solution that redirects part of your traffic via a dedicated server which allows you to access geo-restricted services like Showtime without changing your IP (thus making it possible for you to access your local websites as well). Your connection speed remains unaffected as well. Smart DNS is available for multiple operating systems and devices and is easy to set up.

The first thing you need to do is to sign up with Getflix for a 14-day free trial and register your IP in our system so that it can be redirected. Then, configure the device(s) of your choice for Smart DNS. No special skills or additional expenses on software or hardware needed – just a few clicks of the mouse or taps in the screen and you’re ready to stream Showtime or many other geo-restricted channels that Getflix supports.

If you want to have access to Showtime on all your home network devices, you can do it too. Simply, set up your home router and enable your devices to stream Showtime outside the US. If you have any problems with configuration, contact us for help or visit our Knowledge Base. Our support is always ready to help you out.

Stream Showtime from around the world with Smart VPN

Smart VPN is another solution that could be used to unblock Showtime outside the US. It works in a different way than Smart DNS because it reroutes the entire traffic via a dedicated server and by changing your IP and encrypting the data, makes it very secure and completely anonymous. You appear as if you’re actually from within the US (or any other area of your choice) and all your online activities are impenetrable by any outside hackers or ISPs.

Smart VPN is available for our regular subscribers and is a perfect solution for those who need to travel abroad and use the Internet over public and unprotected networks that may endanger your sensitive information such as passwords or files. Using a VPN technology will guard your Internet connection and enable you to unblock geo-located services.
