Description: The article is about the comparisons between two Apps using Apple TV. These are HBO Now and Showtime. It is a quick review. HBO and Showtime both offer platforms which are like Netflix where you pay a monthly fee to them.
I am going to do a quick review here with a bunch of extra App using an Apple TV. What we are going to review is the App HBO Now, which is Showtime Apps. These work on your phone or Roku and all different devices. I like the Apple TV personally. A lot of people do have the different preferences, but I like Apple TV.
I have Roku, and I also have Google chrome cast. Another one that I do not have is the Amazon Fire which I would like to try it eventually. They are the smart boxes on the whole in this subject.
We are going to review the HBO Now and Showtime Apps. I have got to zoom on my TV. HBO and Showtime both now offer platforms, which are like Netflix where you pay a monthly fee to them. You don’t have to have it to your cable company and you can watch the movies that they offer.
We have Netflix, Hulu and plus the other similar applications. Let me go over to HBO Now, and we will open that app up. When we open it up, it costs $14 a month. HBO has got a lot of great programs and I personally like HBO.
On this screen, there is watch list button, series button, and movies button. It is basically the same stuff that you have on all of the other platforms have.
It is $14.99 a month. It’s running slowly now, because I have got too many devices hooked to my router. It’ll catch up a second. I love the show ballets, so I have got it. Basically they are the same thing whether the name is HBO App or Netflix.
They are the same types of things. I had this one for a while, I have enjoyed it. I decided to go ahead and try the Showtime. Both of them offer a 30-day free trial. I suggest you download both for 30 days and see which one you like better.
The Showtime is cheaper per month. I do like the layout of Showtime better. It is faster response. The home page on Showtime is the same as that of the HBO.
Here is the cool thing with the Showtime, which has live TV feature. I like to fall asleep watching TV. Sometimes I like to turn something on to hear it. I don’t even have cable in my bedroom. I have cable TV in my front room I never ran an outlet into my bedroom, because I do not need it. I watch what I want. Sometimes I like to watch, and then fall asleep during watching shows.
The live TV feature personally I find is cool. I would like to show it up. Let us go back to live TV, which is showing what’s on now.
This is on Showtime East and it has got to schedule, what’s coming up throughout the day? Then you go back up, and you can go to Showtime West. This is what is showing on Showtime West now. There’s the schedule below, put it on to see what is going on.
Let us go back to Showtime East to turn something on and let it play. If you were watching Showtime on TV, you hit it and there it is. That is exactly what’s live on Showtime. You might not like that feature, but I think it’s cool. That’s a neat feature to have.
The layout on the Showtime Apps is better in my view. When you go to categories, you have your movies, sports, comedy, reality and documentaries. When you hit your movies, you’ve got your different genres on your left, it tells what you’re looking for. If you want to see all the movies, you can go up here and hit all movies. I like the way they’ve got it categorized. This is on the Apple TV layout, it may be different on some of the other devices.
If I go to HBO, this runs slowly. I do not know why it’s running slowly than the Showtime is. You’ve got your genre is up here at the top. We’ll go to comedy and then hit comedy and then there are your movies. That’s got a different layout of it .
These two platforms are both very good services. I like them both. What I like about the Showtime one is that it’s cheaper per month. It shows Thomas contents, and different than HBO. I like the live TV feature on Showtime. That is to run now between the two.
My suggestion is to try on both. They both have 30-day free trials and check them out to see what you think and then leave your comments below.
Let us know what you think which one you like better HBO now or a Showtime or both. I may keep them up for $25 a month . You are getting both platforms. I hope you enjoyed it.
