Can I watch subscriptions I buy on Roku (like Showtime) on other devices like Fire Stick?

Jump to solution

I purchased a subscription to Showtime on Roku but only have that device in one room. I have Roku installed on other devices (like fire stick) but the app only plays Roku programs.  Now I would like to watch my showtime subscription on my fire stick in another room. How do I do that?

Hi @Icaninvent,

Welcome to the Roku Community!

Please be noted that Premium Subscriptions like Showtime on The Roku Channel are not currently available on Samsung TVs or Amazon Fire TV devices.

For full information on this, you can take a look at this link: How do I get The Roku® Channel? | Official Roku Support  

Let me know if you have any other questions, and have a good day!

Cancel your subscription through Roku and take out a subscription directly with Showtime.  Then you will be able to watch on any device for which a Showtime app is available.
