If you’re a Showtime subscriber and you regularly use its mobile applications to consume content on the go then you’re going to like the update that it has sent out today. Showtime apps for iOS and Android now have support for offline viewing, meaning that you can download content from its streaming catalog to watch even when there’s no internet connection.

I’m sure many can argue that the apps should have had this feature earlier given that in this day and age, even with internet connectivity never too far out of reach at least in developed countries, one still feels the need to have content on the device that doesn’t require an internet connection to play.

Showtime and Showtime Anytime apps for iOS and Android now have this feature. They will allow subscribers to download episodes of popular shows like Dexter, Homeland, and Shameless for offline viewing.

Users will now see a download button which will let them save movies and TV shows in both standard and high definition. Showtime doesn’t appear to be limiting the feature in any other way so the only thing users may have to be considerate about would be the amount of free storage on their device.
