While people are clamoring for a standalone HBO GO, CBS CEO Les Moonves has taken note and made serious considerations in offering Showtime direct to consumers online. Nothing has been specifically planned, but it’s definitely a move that should be taken as another sign of the times that the barriers between the Internet and TV are quickly fading away.
Currently, Showtime is home to such comedies as the award winning Episodes, Inside Comedy, and Web Therapy as well as various stand-up specials. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend starring Rachel Bloom is also being made into a pilot at the premium cable network.
Being able to binge watch a lot of those series and more to come online would definitely be a great move for Showtime.
