I am a current and longtime subscriber to Showtime (now Paramount+ with Showtime). When I go online and look at my account, Showtime does not show up but I can still watch it and it's still a line item on my last bill. When I search online for premium channels and select Paramount/Showtime, I get "We apologize, but this service is not currently available to add to your account."

Is anyone else who subscribes to this seeing the same thing? Is it an online account problem?

YES I am having the same issue! The website is a mess! I haven’t had anything show up when I look for programming offers! It’s been blank for months! I just assumed they got tired of me taking advantage of them! 🤷‍♂️

If you were a Showtime subscriber, you got transfered to Paramount+/Showtime automatically on 4/30/24. It's probably saying it's unavailable because you already. have it. I checked (not having either linear sub) and could have added it.
 
There are so many things that are wrong with the website right now...for example, if you go to any channel that is in the Top 200 or Top 250 package, the website says it is no longer a part of it. Here is NFL Network as an example: MyDISH There is no reference to the Top 200 or 250 package anywhere. When you go to the website to look at If you go to the Top 200 or 250 page, it says no channels are included: MyDISH and the compare packages is completely broken. There is something wrong with the website in general - what you are describing I saw with the Dish Movie Pack back when I had it a couple of weeks ago.
 
Well when I had Showtime recently it would not show up on the website that I had it or when you looked at your programming by checking your bill etc using the Hopper. Also when your signed into your account and you try to change your programming using the Hopper you get an error that says call Dish to change programming. It's almost like the team that worked on this stuff is no longer on the clock. I was able to sign up for the 6.99 off netflix for 2 years by talking to a rep on the phone. One more thing I am getting Channel 165 GAC in my AT 200 package and I see it's nowhere written that it's in free preview.

OK, I get that, but the other premium packages I have (Starz and Movie Pack), show up. If I select them, they say I am subscribed with the 50% off and when that offer will expire. It seems Dish is behind in fixing their website. Of course I just read that Paramount is being acquired by another company.

I am considering taking them up on the Netflix deal as well, but it seems the only way is to call them. Can't do it online.

As for channel they should work if you subscribed too, if dont work after day I would call dish
