Showtime lets you watch live US TV wherever you are

Showtime is a new app by CBS that lets you Stream live TV, films and TV series on your iPhone and iPad without a cable subscription. Here’s how to use it outside the US.

First of all, you can download the free app from Showtime’s official website. It requires an iPhone, iPod or iPhone Touch with iOS 7.0 or above.

Open the app and sign up to start streaming content on the go. Showtime charges $10.99 a month, but gives you a 30-day free trial which you can cancel at any time on your Apple ID’s settings (inside the iTunes Store).

United States Live TV on iPad

Showtime’s main screen has five sections, including home, categories, Live TV, My list and a search button. You don’t need to use a VPN to hide your current location, in case you’re outside the United States.

Live TV shows you a list of programmes streaming live at the moment, either on the east or west side of the US. Just remember that live TV streaming will consume a lot of your internet’s data allowance – something to take into account if you’re using the app on the go.

You can also create a playlist with your favourite shows, or see your recent activity. Showtime’s popular series include Dexter, Californication and Homeland.
