Showtime adds offline downloads to its mobile apps

New, 5 comments

Showtime announced today that subscribers can now download videos from its streaming catalog to watch offline, including episodes of shows like Homeland, Billions, Dexter, and Shameless. The update rolls out to the Showtime and Showtime Anytime apps for iOS and Android today, adding a download button to save movies or TV shows in either standard or high definition to watch without an internet connection.

There don’t seem to be a whole lot of limitations to the feature, either, aside from the amount of room you’ve got on your device to store downloaded shows. It’s a move that puts Showtime in line with streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Video, and Vudu, all of which also offer the ability to save shows to watch without an internet connection.
