Don't get Showtime as part of your subscription package?
Well, you should! At least for tonight and tomorrow, anyway, because this is Showtimes "Free Preview Weekend," meaning you don't have to upgrade your cable package to witness history. And all you Canadians should be happy to hear about the last-minute deal that ensures Showtime will air on Super Channel (read more on that here).
Of course, you can call up your local cable and/or satellite provider (or you can click here), to add Showtime so that you can take advantage of the subscription benefits.
In particular, Showtime subscribers can access "Showtime Anytime" online, meaning you can catch all the action on your iPad, iPhone, Android or regular 'ole computer.
