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?

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.

Guess I shouldn't complain, it was a free one month subscription.
