Stan signs huge deal with Showtime

Australian streaming service, Stan, has announced that it has signed a long-term, exclusive licensing agreement with Showtime.

The deal goes live this week and gives Australians access to all future Showtime series as well as many of their existing titles.

Showtime’s newest show, Billions,  premiered this week on Stan with the first episode also screening on Channel 9. The deal also means Twin Peaks fans will be able to watch the highly anticipated season return on Stan in 2017.

Existing shows coming to the service include House of Lies, The Affair, Weeds, Penny Dreadful, Ray Donovan, Dexter and Californication.

In addition to Showtime content, Stan will also have access to content from Showtime’s parent company CBS, with several shows coming to the service, including Madam Secretary, Limitless, Elementary, Scorpion, Under the Dome, Extant, Beauty and the Beast and Reign. Every episode of every Star Trek television series will also be available on Stan.

The Showtime deal gives premium content for Stan to fight against Netflix’s Originals and Presto’s HBO shows.
