Pros: A lot of channels to choose from.
Cons: Terrible programming, movies from the early '90's and bad original programming running all day long.
I got Showtime a few days ago. And I cancelled it after 3 days, even though I was getting a good pricing for a premium package with 8 Showtime channels in it. However, I was extremely dissapointed! The only 2 new movies which I saw were Superstar and Election, and Election isnt that new. Plus, both of those movies are not worth the time anyways.
The only other programming I saw on the 8 channels was terrible original programming with nude penises everywhere.
Don't forget the terrible 30 minute porn specials. If you want softcore porn, then get Cinemax. Showtime, even with 8 channels, lacks good softcore porn and extremely lacks in good new movies. Showtime is diffinetly not worth it. And I haven't seen a good boxing event expected to be televised on Showtime for many many months.
