Which Channel Number Is Showtime On Spectrum Tv

Entertainment mediums are constantly evolving. Now it is easier for us to switch browser tabs and stream Netflix. Some even choose to use up their phone storage to download streaming apps to watch on-the-go. Surely, with the emerging streaming platforms, there are entertainment choices for everyone. For families, young teens, and adults – you can get to watch TV shows and movies either in the palm of your hand or on your TV screen.

But the charm of cable TV still has not worn out. With Spectrum, you will wonder why you ever considered to cut the cable TV cord as Spectrum has never faltered in offering the best entertainment choices to audiences belonging to varied demographics. There is a TV network for everyone out there in the U.S. You get news channels on one end; sports enthusiasts get the NBA League pass and households with spirited children are not left out either.

However, if you are looking for a TV network that is not limited in its niche and caters viewers of all sorts, SHOWTIME is the one to choose. The premium television network surfaced in 1976 and since then has not wavered from the stature it has acquired over the years. It is one of the few pay cable networks of its time that emerged as a direct competitor of HBO. And that is not a small achievement.

The network now sits with availability to 29.7 million U.S. households along with a wide range of multiplex channels and a subscription-based service known as SHOWTIME On Demand.

SHOWTIME – List of Channels

SHOWTIME currently offers sixteen multiplex channels. Among the multiplex channel list, eight channels air content for 24 hours while the rest of the seven channels broadcast content in both HD and SD resolutions. Along with the cable TV options, SHOWTIME On Demand is the subscription-based video service that also offers an extensive range of series, movies, and documentaries.
