The price is less than the $12 a month it costs to access Showtime's app on its own and would bring the price of Showtime plus Hulu Plus to $17 a month.

Showtime, owned by CBS Corp., has been pushing distribution of its service separate from traditional cable and satellite TV packages. Earlier this month, Showtime announced its app would be available on Roku streaming equipment and Sony's PlayStation Vue online TV service.
