Showtime lags behind its rivals, HBO/Creator/{{Cinemax}} and Creator/{{Starz}}/Encore, primarily due to the other networks' stronger movie offerings. It may have lost the film libraries of its largest providers, Creator/{{Paramount}} Pictures (which was its corporate cousin from 1994 to 2005) (not counting those that are aired on ''Creator/ABCFamily''), MetroGoldwynMayer (not counting those that are aired on ''Creator/ABCFamily'') and Creator/LionsGate, to their own Epix in 2009, but it hasn't been hurt by this at all (meanwhile, Epix toils in MyNetworkTV-esque obscurity, as several major providers refuse to carry it); indeed, thanks to Lionsgate's acquisition of Starz in 2016, plus rumors of a re-merger between Viacom and CBS (with Viacom bringing the then-discontinued everGirl website back online), not to mention the carriage issues, have pretty much left the fate of Epix sealed (and the relaunch of boyzChannel/girlzChannel). Besides that, Showtime does hold the rights to the ''{{Twilight}}'' film franchise, which they air [[AdoredByTheNetwork plenty of times]].

A pay channel in the model of {{Creator/HBO}}, Showtime debuted on the market in 1976. Originally based in California, the network expanded to national markets two years later. Its original owner was the first incarnation of {{Viacom}}, which is now known as Creator/{{CBS}} Corporation, and has the Smithsonian Channel as a sister network as part of a unique deal with that institution for rights to programming involving Smithsonian exhibits and properties (You can blame this for why you see [[NetworkDecay programs like]] Series/{{Ice Road Truckers}} on Creator/{{The History Channel}}).
