Showtime is Coming to Hulu!

Showtime Hits

The Great Unbundling continues! According to Deadline, not only is Showtime introducing its standalone service later this summer, but it's also going to make its offerings available (for an additional fee) on Hulu!

This is, to put it lightly, an unexpected turn of events, given that Showtime's parent company, CBS, hasn't made any of its content available on Hulu — in fact, it created its own standalone subscription service, CBS All Access.

Showtime + Hulu

This also means that Showtime content will be available on all devices that are served by Hulu, which means the rollout will be faster than that of, say, HBO Now, which partnered exclusively with Apple for its introductory period.

As of right now, the pricing for Showtime on Hulu will be a little bit lower than its own standalone service ($8.99/month vs. $10.99/month), though it remains to be seen whether it'll be ad-supported, as is most of the content on Hulu.

Would you rather subscribe to Showtime's standalone service or through Hulu? Chime in the comments!
