    I got really really excited there for a minute…until I read that last paragraph. Hopefully Dish Network will be added to that list soon.

  • say what?

    Most people, myself included, who use Roku do not subscribe to cable. Was so excited because Outlander starts this summer. Another loss for those sticking it to the (cable) man ;-) Wah wah waaaah. I will dry my tears with my $100 saved per month though. For the greater good!

    • theamira

      You know that Outlander is on Starz, right?

    • NickL1975NYC

      so you still have to ‘subscribe to the cable company’ for high speed internet access which not only do you pay full price for but Comcast charges a $16 ‘premium’ if you do subscribe to any of their TV packages

  • Laurel

    No dish?! :(

  • stuart

    Sucks to be on Comcast. I guess those Time Warner customers will be loosing access soon?

  • Lynn

    Cox cable please?

  • joooosh

    y arnt these channels available in canana. this is boot!!

  • Adrian

    Did anyone get it to show up on the Roku one yet?

  • Steve

    Shocked that RCN isn’t included! Shocked!

  • steph

    Ugh was too excited til the end. Maybe showtime can become like a “hulu”

  • cbgb

    Does it work on the N1100?? Not buying another Roku to get this to work.

    • reddogs

      I just checked Roku’s website … none of the “classic” Roku boxes, including your N1100, are considered “current generation”.

      • cbgb

        Thanks reddogs. I also verified that via chat with a service rep. They said “it was the providers choice” because they would need to develop a separate app for the older generation Rokus.

        • JCL

          So which models are “classic”? I have a 2100x.

          • cbgb

            JCL – I’m not sure what’s considered “classic” – you might want to check with support. Based on the info at this link, it seems that your 2100x might be considered an older model that doesn’t support Showtime Anytime http://support.roku.com/entries/20345913-Product-Comparison-All-Roku-Player-Models. I think our best bet is that Roku/Showtime do the development work for the older models.

  • anthonymendez

    I’m just shocked that Time Warner Cable got it right away. Although that might not last long (I noticed Comcast isn’t on that list.)

  • AlexFirth91

    Yes!

  • Doug Dragon

    I was excited…until I read the last part.

  • CableSux

    So what? Obviously Roku does not understand its audience. Chromecast rules!

  • Kat

    Where is Dish????

  • EnTerr

    Oh, so Roku is the *first* streaming device to do Showtime Anytime? Congratulations!
    (first = other than all-purpose devices with iOS, Android, Kindle and PC)

    • Adam Parker

      In their defense, it is the first set top box type device to do Showtime Anytime. Beats out the game consoles, Apple TV, Smart TVs, etc. That’s certainly something.

      • EnTerr

        Whose defense? I was sincere and not ironic in congratulating Roku on the good work. Let me try rephrasing above

        • Adam P

          Whoops! I did misunderstand, lol.

  • Adrian

    So you still can’t confirm that this is coming to the older models

  • stereoguy188

    I have an old roku. Showtime Anytime is not on there.
    I do have HBO GO.
    Any suggestions? .

  • Confused roku owner

    Everytime I select the “showtime anytime” app on roku it says “there is no internet connection which isn’t true because my HBOGO and hulu work perfectly fine. What gives???

  • mike

    How does one find out how much it costs to have showtime on Roku when you don’t have it anywhere else?

  • Auburn Catfish

    I have a pretty new Roku and the app is not showing up in the store. Is this because I do not have a “current generation” Roku? If so, this is a massive fail. I get this if I had the Roku 1, but previous generation?

  • This sucks

    Showtimeanytime.com/activate is not a valid website according to my computer. What gives? I have a valid subscription with a participating provider and it still doesn’t work.

  • Marq

    Is anyone finding the streaming incredibly unreliable? We cant go 3 minutes without shows reloading… HBO Go and WWE network stream without issue, so it’s not our internet connection.
