A Showtime multi-platform streaming service has finally arrived — courtesy of a partnership with Hulu.
This deal marks the first premium channel for the Internet streaming service. Showtime will be available as both a standalone channel and as an add-on for Hulu's almost 9 million subscribers.
And a bonus: The package will cost $4 less than Showtime's competitor, HBO Now. The add-on will cost Hulu subscribers $8.99 — $2 less than the standalone channel.
