Yep I just read about it they are still trying to fix the log in issue can not log in tells me I need to subscribe to Showtime when I am already. Now how about HBO Go for Apple TV and the guide update for CISCO DVRs in SoCal area promised since last month, hmmm....

Yeah, got the e-mail about this, even though I am not a showtime subscriber. They have the info on everyone's account, so, why bother sending e-mail about something I could care less about ?

I rather see e-mails that actually apply to me, like future upgrades in my area.

That is what WeWantToKnow

guide update for CISCO DVRs in SoCal area

The Guide is in BETA test, SoCal is not the only area with SA/CISCO converters, the guide will cover all platforms on both Moto and CISCO it is a cloud based soution with all the data remotely stored at the Head End, you will interact with still mpeg. images. So it is fairly complex, would you rather have a guide that works but is a little outdated or one that looks great but has a ton of bugs? I'll wait for the bug free version. meanwhile i can use the new guide via the Charter app on my IPAD and it is interactive with my DVRs as long as i am in my LAN. If i'm away from home i still can program dvr to record my programs.

Not the cloud guide the Passport one that is showing up on Charter's Youtube where you can auto tune your lower channels to HD instead. In my area we were suppose to get the Passport guide 4 years ago but we never did instead we still got that crappy SA Guide.

The Auto Tune feature will be officially launched with Spectrum. so when your area goes all digital and the 60Mbps upgrade is complete.

Oh okay see this is not explained anywhere I would have known that even on Charter website about Charter Spectrum the explanation of what to expect is not explained very well, such as about what will be Grandfathered as in your bill or your internet speed where you will not get a download speed of 60 and not sure what they mean by upgrade. I already get everything from Charter such as every cable channel and internet 30 download but not the land line phone service since I have no need for it.

And as for Charter Spectrum in my area most likely during summer or end of the year I doubt it will be sooner even though Charter is huge in my area.

Trying to get this back on topic... I tried to login to Showtime Anytime last night and could get through the Charter login process... but when it passed the information back to Showtime, it said I wasn't a subscriber to Showtime.... but I am. Has anyone else gotten through yet?

Thanks!

Yes I know that and others also know we are not dumb but it still does not work I still get the message saying I need to subscribe to Showtime. When I am also signing into the Charter App too same issue that keeps telling me to upgrade when I have everything they offer clearly their tech team are bunch of idiots as always.

Trying to get this post back on topic.... I tried again last night with the Showtime Anytime App on iOS. Wasn't able to get verified (although Charter's login seemed to work). Has anyone else got it to work?

Yep I have I chatted with them online for an hour I even called them and told them the problem and still they can not find the solution and I just got the latest version updated no changes. The first version of the Charter app that was released had zero issues.

I really like the Roku app, it works excellent for me however I authenticate with DirecTV with the bandwidth going over Charter Internet.

For those having trouble I do remember one thing when I was attempting to access the EPIXHD.com content that's included with the Internet, you had to have a @charter.net email address setup (even if you do not plan to use it) and login with that each time for EPIX; anyway it might be the same issue here for those having issues with SHO Anytime. You can create one at »www.myaccount.charter.com (Online Tools > Email > Add New Email) and make sure it's the Head of Household email account (if you have multiples) that you use to login to SHO Anytime.

No, the problem exists despite signing in with the appropriate email account.

Okay, I just thought I would throw that out as a possibility. Thanks for confirming, sounds like its definitely a Charter issue for sure.

Works for me as of yesterday. Doubt I'll ever use it though until they allow Airplay on it. When I also tried it out on my Mac, the video resolution kind of looked like crap, too. Certainly not what HBO Go or Netflix look like.

Okay it is finally working and wow the streaming quality is a joke compared to Epix, Cinemax Go and HBO Go. You have to also install some other plugin to stream on your Mac or PC I guess they are supposedly streaming HTML I doubt it since quality fails and barely anything is on showtime anytime benefit is for series.

I am still trying to remember the last time I saw any good movies on Showtime it least Django is coming on April 9 and the same with Starz. I remember the days when Starz also had Anime movies like Vampire Hunter D, so much has changed.
