Showtime Anytime-A Big Joke?

I have two computers and there is no such website as ShowtimeAnytime/activate ? Is this a big scam? There is no place too enter activation code at their Showtime Anytime website. They say I need too register as the primary account holder. WTF ???

I have Showtime thru Charter and I should have access to it.

Works fine for me. I have Directv and have never had any problems activating my devices with it.

Re: Showtime Anytime-A Big Joke?

Did a google search on 2 computers-no such link. Maybe I mis-typed something. I will try your link. I have Showtime with Charter and it's a major pain staying connected and setting parental controls,etc with Charter's subscription services.

Been having trouble with Epix also. Won't let me watch anything except PG-13 movies one minute then everything the next minute.

PS-Tried above link-no luck. No place to put activation code. Asks me too register for Showtime Anytime (I've done that ten times already today)then it says I must be Primary acct. holder(I am the only holder). Bunch of bullshit. I will call Charter.

Works fine here, click the link, login, activate. If it's an issue with your Charter login, you definitely need to call them.

fwiw, I went to www.showtimeanytime.com/activate

Re: Showtime Anytime-A Big Joke?

I called Charter. It seems to be a problem on their end. The customer rep couldn't log in either. Also EPIX and HBO GO aren't working either(that's with Charter's internet service).

I never was able to log in to Showtime Anytime at anytime in the past while I was able to log in to EPIX and HBO Go with EPIX being a problem with parental controls.

Encore Play and Starz Play are also down( with Charter's internet service).

Re: Showtime Anytime-A Big Joke?

EPIX is working on my Roku devices but not on my Roku TVs. Haven't tried Showtime Anytime. TVs are tied up watching MLB.

Encore Play works and doesn't work so it's been hit and miss.

Re: Showtime Anytime-A Big Joke?

Charter sounds like it's kind of a clusterfuck then.

It's like when Comcast didn't allow the Roku to access HBO Go but allowed the Apple TV. (And then HBO announced HBO Now, and Comcast realized they'd potentially lose money so they quickly allowed all systems to access HBO Go)

Re: Showtime Anytime-A Big Joke?

Charter was giving away Roku 3's during a promotion and now those are the one's not working with EPIX but my original Roku 1 devices are working with EPIX.

I just hooked up two Roku's with Showtime Anytime but it's not letting me watch any R rated movies. Hells Bells they all are R rated. I will give it a few hours and then call Charter again. Maybe I will wait till tomorrow too see if EPIX is working.

I think EPIX had a free preview this weekend which isn't helping matters. When you get it free for a weekend does the streaming channel work as well?

Everything works now except EPIX. Doesn't work at all on Roku 3 ;works on Roku 1 but only allows me too watch PG-13 movies.

It works through Chromecast on my iPhone. Unlike Starz because of their slap-fight with Comcast. Showtime also actually do everything in the right aspect ratio. Would that others would follow their lead.
