Showtime to offer streaming service

NEW YORK (AP) – There’s a new programming choice for cord-cutters.

Showtime will soon join rival HBO with an online streaming option. CBS, which owns Showtime, says it will begin streaming next month for $10.99 a month on all Apple devices, including the iPad, iPhone and Apple TV. CBS says Showtime will be available on non-Apple devices soon.

Networks and cable channels have begun to create stand-alone streaming services as a way to reach people who don’t subscribe to traditional cable packages that have dozens of channels. HBO Now has been available on Apple devices since April. CBS already has a streaming service for its TV network, where customers can watch “The Big Bang Theory” and other CBS shows.

Showtime will begin streaming on July 12.
