Showtime is on SALE!

Showtime is on SALE!

The kids are back at school, pumpkin spice everything is at the store, and soon the weather will be turning from crisp to downright cold. In short, it’s the perfect time to curl up on your couch and enjoy some great entertainment—especially since Showtime is on sale.

As in, REALLY on sale.

If you haven’t heard yet, you can get everything Showtime, including Showtime Anytime and On Demand, for only $6.95/mo. for 12 months. (Nearly 60% off the regular price!)

That’s less than the price of a single movie ticket, rental, or other monthly streaming service. Better yet, you can just grab your remote and tune in to award-winning shows, movies, sports, documentaries, and comedy specials.

Check out what you can watch:


Ray Donovan
Watch season five (and/or binge watch the whole series) of this award-winning show. Liev Schreiber stars as a “fixer” for a law firm. He’s successful, a family man, but he’s also dealing with his just-released-from-prison father, while also trying to outrun the FBI on his tail. (Note: it has a 77% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes AND a whopping 88% audience score.)

Twin Peaks
Need we say more? This new cult classic from the ‘90s is BACK. Picking up 25 years after the last series ended, this David Lynch tour de force (the premiere got a five minute standing ovation at Cannes, by the way) will certainly take you on a wild ride. You can binge all 18 of the new episodes at your leisure!

The funny, sometimes sad, shocking and raunchy story of a dysfunctional family continues this November. Oscar-nominated William H. Macy stars as alcoholic Frank Gallagher along with Golden Globe-nominated Emmy Rossum as his eldest daughter. You can catch up on seasons 1-7 before the November 5th premier of
season 8.

And, don’t miss two other Showtime Original series: First, there’s “Episodes,” a comedy series starring Matt LeBlanc (of Friends, fame) as Matt LeBlanc (you can watch the first episode here). Then, also watch “Dice,” a semi-autobiographical series that follows Andrew Dice Clay.


Inside the NFL” is an Emmy Award-winning series that brings you exclusive commentary and special on and off the field features you can’t find anywhere else.

A Season with Navy Football“—need we say more? Follow the 2017 Naval Academy football team with weekly installments of the all-access documentary series.

And, don’t forget that you can catch the Lara vs. Gausha fight on October 14 if you sign up now!


The thing about Showtime is that the movies are always changing and always fresh. Right now you can watch “The Edge of Seventeen” (rated 95% on Rotten Tomatoes and Certified Fresh) or “Bad Moms” (a sequel is already in the works!), or classics like “Gangs of New York” and “Jaws.” Want horror? Check out “The Babadook.” Want something you can watch with the whole family? How about “Rescue Dogs,” or even oldies but goodies like “The Parent Trap” (when Lindsay Lohan was little!). There really IS something for everyone (including documentaries and comedy specials which we haven’t even talked about).

All of this available on your TV, or streamed on your favorite mobile device, for a price that can’t be beat—no separate bill, streaming box, or hassle required.

The sale ends on October 21, so call 541-241-8519 to sign up and to get watching!
