FiOS Launches Showtime Anytime

by on ‎01-10-2012 10:07 AM

Anytime1.jpgWe often talk here about the borderless lifestyle and how Verizon is making this possible for today’s consumers – especially our tech savvy FiOS customers. Today we’re again expanding our borderless offering, with the launch of SHOWTIME ANYTIME.  


FiOS TV customers are among the first to receive unlimited access to this online and mobile service, which features more than 400 hours of SHOWTIME’s original programming, hit movies and sports offerings. With your Verizon FiOS login credentials, you can easily access all of this programming on your PC, from any location with a broadband connection, and from your iPad.


SHOWTIME ANYTIME is available to FiOS customers who subscribe to Showtime, and can be accessed by logging in at FiOS TV Online or, or by downloading the Showtime Anytime iPad app from the iTunes App store.  FiOS customers will find everything from series like “Dexter,” “Nurse Jackie” and “Homeland,” to hit movies like “The King’s Speech,” “Blue Valentine” and “The Twilight Saga: New Moon.” Looking for more? Check out the comedy specials, documentaries and, of course, SHOWTIME’s sports programming featuring boxing, NASCAR and MMA.


More good news for our FiOS TV customers today: we’re getting ready to launch online programming from FOX. Back in September we told you this was coming soon. As a FiOS TV customer, you’ll get next-day access to your favorite FOX shows. If you’re like me that probably means you’ll be watching “Glee” and “New Girl” when new episodes start to air and catching up on past episodes now. Keep a look out for FOX on FiOS TV Online, as we expect it to be available soon. 


Enjoy all the new online and mobile programming and don’t forget about everything else available on FiOS TV Online as well as Flex View. And check back here for updates, as I hope to have more good news about expanding the borderless lifestyle for you soon.

All good stuff here but when will VZ provide an APP where you can watch TV from your Tablet device (IPAD, etc) or PC?


My local cable company (name withheld) has an APP that allows you to watch TV on your hand held device as long as you are home and behind your home router.  I wish VZ offered that.

"Single Sign-On Error

To watch videos, you will need to subscribe to FiOS TV with SHOWTIME.
