Showtime's standalone streaming service comes to Xbox One

Showtime's standalone streaming service is now available on Xbox One, the company has announced. With it, you can stream any of Showtime's content on-demand, including movies, sports and original series, and even live feeds from Showtime East or West on your Xbox One.

Xbox One joins a growing list of platforms that support Showtime's standalone streaming service, which requires a $10.99 per month subscription billed directly through Showtime itself. This is separate from the Showtime Anytime app, which has been available for Xbox One for some time, but requires you to sign in with a cable provider through which you already pay for a Showtime subscription.

If other platforms are any indication, the standalone service will be available through a separate Showtime app, rather than relying on the already available Showtime Anytime app. The app doesn't appear to be searchable through the Xbox Store just yet (as of the time of writing), but it should be available shortly. In the meantime, you can hit up Showtime's website to sign up and start diving into the latest episodes of Twin Peaks.
