Showtime is an American over-the-top video on demand service which, unlike its competitors, doesn’t require to have a cable or satellite subscription. It allows its users an instant and unlimited access to past and present original Showtime series together with a long list of feature-length movies, exciting documentaries, comedies, sports events and other popular entertainment content.
But most importantly – you don’t need to sit in front of your TV to enjoy all of this. Showtime is available on many devices: computers, tablets, smartphones, game consoles, Roku, Amazon, Apple TV and many more.
Unfortunately, due to certain media content licensing agreements, Showtime streaming services are only available for U.S residents. So if you are abroad on your vacation or business trip, there is a high chance you won’t be able to access the content you are used to watch at home. Actually, it can be quite frustrating not being able to use what you pay for.
This is why more and more users turn to NordVPN services for secure and unrestricted access to their favorite streaming content.
Like all other websites with geo-restrictions, Showtime is blocked by denying users’ access based on their IP address. When you connect to the Internet, your device is assigned an IP address, revealing the country you are currently in. Meaning that all Internet restrictions valid there would be applied to you as well.
NordVPN allows connecting to more than 200 U.S servers making your IP address look like you are located in that country. This allows you to stream Showtime content and stay secure at the same time. NordVPN directs your Internet traffic through an encrypted tunnel and has strict no-logs policy meaning that your Internet activities can not be monitored or censored.
