We've been accustomed to having mobile access to the entire back catalog of our favorite Showtime series via the Showtime Anytime app since its launch in 2011. Users will no longer be limited to past episodes on their handsets and tablets, however, as both the Android and iOS apps were updated today with the ability to stream a live feed of whatever's airing on Showtime. All you need to do is install the update, choose whether Showtime East or West best suits your viewing preference, and you'll be able to enjoy Dexter perform his latest ritual on your mobile device every Sunday night.

LOS ANGELES, CA – July 30, 2013 – Showtime Networks announced today the addition of live East and West Coast feeds of SHOWTIME to SHOWTIME ANYTIME, the network's "TV Everywhere" service.

Authenticated subscribers can simply click on the "Live TV" button on SHOWTIME ANYTIME, then choose between SHOWTIME EAST and SHOWTIME WEST and immediately tune-in to what's currently airing on the network. At any time, users can click on the "live TV schedule" menu to see what's coming up or to switch between the two feeds. Subscribers will continue to have unlimited on demand access to current and past seasons of award-winning SHOWTIME original series including DEXTER®, RAY DONOVAN, HOMELAND, CALIFORNICATION, HOUSE OF LIES, WEB THERAPY, EPISODES and NURSE JACKIE, along with hit movies, sports, specials and much more.
