Including docus, 150 films will be available on the site. All Showtime series can be accessed, as well as one or two former series, including “The Tudors.” There are discussions about adding shows such as “Brotherhood.”

Pay cabler is seeing healthy ratings returns for the fifth season of “Dexter” — most recent episode drew 1.9 million viewers, the most for the season — and “The Big C” will end its 13-episode first season Nov. 15.

The network will premiere Brit import “Shameless” and Matt LeBlanc starrer “Episodes” Jan. 9.
