Without beating about the bush, I’ll just give you the straight answer: you can watch and access Showtime shows & movies without subscribing to any of its plans. But that’s only limited to a certain amount of time.
In this guide, I’ll discuss how to get Showtime for free. I’ll also talk about how you can get and enjoy Showtime on many streaming devices like Firestick, Roku, and Spotify, among others.
How To Get Showtime For Free? Use The Free Showtime Trials
Showtime is among the best streaming platforms with the most user-friendly features as far as my experience with Showtime is concerned. And I’m sure you must’ve heard of these Free Trials on Showtime, especially if you’re a serial binge-watcher like me.
I’d say Free Trials on this platform are pretty incredible compared to those offered by other streaming platforms like Hulu & Netflix. Why do I say so?
Showtime provides an amazing variety of content with its free trial version. I was also able to choose from an incredible section of offers within the platform. True, other streaming platforms offer free trials as well. Generally, these offers claim to last for about a month initially. But I’d say that’s a long stretch in reality.
Most of these free trials do not last for an entire month. Ultimately, they are cut down to just about a week or so as you start using the streaming services. However, that isn’t the case with Showtime.
I created an account on Showtime and used the 30-day Showtime free trial. The free account lasted me for an entire month, to the dot. But that isn’t where the discounts end.
- More Discounts with Showtime Free Trial
Generally, it would cost a user $10.99 base price if they were to avail themselves of the usual Showtime tier. But that same Showtime tier cost me $3.99 after my free trial period expired.
This offer is for those who’ve availed of the free trial, and it lasts for 6 months from the date the trial period expires. That means spending just $19.95 & choosing from a plethora of amazing Showtime content for 5 more months.
Therefore, I’ll be spending only about $23.94 to stream Showtime content for 6 months plus the prior 1-month free trial. If that isn’t a bargain, I don’t know what is. I recommend you do the same if you’re searching for ways to stream the latest Showtime shows & movies at very affordable rates.
How To Get Showtime For Free On Firestick
The process is the same: Firstly, I suggest you open a Showtime account and avail yourself of the free trial first.
- Go ahead & open showtime.com in your browser using any device.
- Tap on START YOUR FREE TRIAL. Put in your details and SIGN UP.
- Run your Firestick and navigate to the home section.
- Select the Search option from the main menu using your remote.
- Put Showtime in the given space and Search.
- Tap on Showtime under APPS & SUBSCRIPTIONS.
- Go right ahead and choose Get.
- Head back to your home section after you’ve successfully installed Showtime on your Firestick.
- Access Apps and open Showtime. Put in your login details and use your Showtime free trial to stream content for free.
How To Get Showtime For Free With Spotify
Showtime users have another alternative if they want to stream shows & movies for free on the platform. I suggest using Spotify to access Showtime for free if you’re already a Spotify Premium user or planning to get one.
The Premium Spotify tier comes at a monthly cost of $5 for students. You can also alternatively go for the yearly tier as well for $60 for students.
Accessing Free Showtime with Spotify was pretty smooth. I suggest you head to this Spotify link and activate your student ID first before anything else. It’ll make the process much faster.
Currently, these services only cover students who’re pursuing their degrees in a US school or university. So, students attending universities in any other part of the world outside the US will have to stick to IPTV services or free trial periods to stream Showtime for free.
Getting free Hulu access is yet another user-friendly aspect of getting Showtime free with the Spotify Premium tier.
How To Get Showtime PPV For Free?
Let me be the one to break it to you: It’s not possible to get free PPV content on Showtime. I availed myself of the free trial and tried to stream Showtime PPV. However, I wasn’t able to. It requires you to purchase a separate Showtime bundle to stream PPV.
It matters not whether you’re still using the free trial Showtime account or on the paid tier. Showtime requires users to buy PPV content separately from the subscribed platform plan.
Don’t bother if you’re planning to install a third-party app using Firestick or Roku. I tried it and wasn’t able to stream Showtime PPV without purchasing the content itself. However, I suggest you use the Showtime Sports channel on YouTube or load Pluto TV using Firestick/Roku if you’re bent on streaming Showtime PPV for free.
Showtime Free Trial is surely the best to enjoy free shows & movies on the platform. I’d say it’s worth a lot to take advantage of the free trial even if you don’t have access to free Showtime PPV.
The best part is that monthly Showtime plans become extremely cheap right after the free trial expires for the next 6 months. I recommend checking Showtime Twitter Support & Showtime Reddit regularly to stay up to date on all new discounts & offers.
