Showtime Streaming Service Is Shutting Down at the End of April

Starting April 30th, subscribers to Paramount Media Networks‘s Showtime streaming app, which was launched in 2015, will no longer be able to access its streaming service.

If you use Showtime or enjoy its content, all hope is not lost. To access Showtime services, opt into the Paramount+ With Showtime subscription plan.

According to Showtime’s Help Center Page: “Now that subscribers can access their favourite Showtime programs on Paramount+ by subscribing to the Paramount+ with Showtime plan, the Showtime streaming service will shut down on April 30, 2024Current Showtime streaming subscribers will continue to have access to the Showtime streaming service until it is shut down on April 30, 2024.”

The Showtime cable channel is still available but has Paramount+ With Showtime since January. The Showtime streaming app has been in existence for almost 9 years. The Paramount+ With Showtime ad-free streaming package was launched in June 2023, alongside a price hike from $9.99 to $11.99 per month.

The move with Paramount’s Showtime is not the first; Warner Bros. Discovery had a similar experience. When Max was launched, it merged with HBO to become HBO Max and killed off services like HBO Now and HBO Go; it was later rebranded as Max in 2023.
