Showtime is a premium cable channel known for bit hits like Ray Donovan, Billions, Dexter and Shameless. The network has arguably struggled in the streaming age but thanks to strategic partnerships like the one with Netflix, it’s slowly adapting.
Most of their new content seems to be split between its own channels which are available on add-ons on Amazon and Hulu or sold exclusively to another streaming provider.
Netflix doesn’t get many of the new series from Showtime but still holds a large amount of its back catalog as documented below.
