Roku has been in the set top box market in the US for a long time now and offers some of the more interesting set top boxes out there. Roku has a number of hardware devices that are all designed to allow you to enjoy your favorite streaming content on the big screen.


Back in December the Roku set top box received an official YouTube app. Roku has now announced via a blog post that it has another new streaming service available for users in the US. The new streaming service is Showtime Anytime. Showtime Anytime allows subscribers to the pay channel to view movies and original shows online or on mobile devices.

The app landing on current generation Roku devices will make it easy to get the popular Showtime content in the living room. Showtime Anytime offers access to past and current shows allowing you to catch up.

As with any device that supports Showtime Anytime, you do need a subscription to Showtime with a participating provider. Some of the participating providers include DirecTV, Time Warner Cable, and Verizon FiOS.
