Showtime anytime activation

Having problems activating Showtime app.

I go to the web site showtimeanytime.com/activate but it just directs to complete the process of downloading the app. There is no place to enter the code showing on the tv.

Re: Showtime anytime activation

...not sure what device you’re using but all I did was to download the app, in my case, to an iPhone. The app when launched will step you thru the activation process. 

 

First choose DirecTV Now as your provider, enter your DTVN credentials. Then establish a Showtime username and password. Done. 

No code involved, could you be trying to 'pair' your device to the TV for Air Play or casting?

Re: Showtime anytime activation

The activation on the website "showtimeanytime.com/activate" only works on a PC or MAC browser.

If you try this on a mobile device (phone or tablet) it will direct you to install the Showtime app.

Either install the app or use a PC or MAC.

Re: Showtime anytime activation

This doesn't work on a computer. It used to be that you added/#/ before Activate. But that is no longer available. You can use the so-called app only if you want to stream on a small screen. If you want it on the TV, you have no way to enter the code. Showtime strikes again.

Re: Showtime anytime activation

Correction: This link does work--showtimeanytime.com/#/activate. It takes you to the signin for your provider and then you can type in the code. You can then use the app on Roku.

 

The directions on Roku are wrong. I have used this link for about a year. If you use the app, it will set you up on a mobile device.

Re: Showtime anytime activation

Nice you are helping but this is an old issue and I haven’t subscribed to showtime for a year now.

Since you are so knowledgeable and I am so stupid, tell me how to unsubscribe so people I don’t know will not invade my privacy.

Unsubscribe to DirecTV Now? That's easy. Just login to your account and go to "Manage Subscriptions". You can cancel from there.

@MaMitch121 , to unsubscribe to just Showtime (or any other premium channel), log in to your account then go here, scroll down and click the "Remove" button.

Re: Showtime anytime activation

The activation code appears when you sign in to the provider in the app. It will display the code and show you an activation website.
