Streaming video service FandangoNow has added Showtime’s original programming to its catalog.

Users can now purchase individual episodes or full seasons of Showtime originals from FandangoNow.

“Showtime’s award-winning original series and documentaries have delighted audiences for years and we are thrilled to offer their premium programming on FandangoNOW," said Adam Rockmore, chief marketing officer for FandangoNow, in a statement. "We are kicking off the relationship with the launch of ‘Billions,’ just in time for a summer ‘Billions’ binge.”

Fandango last year bought M-GO and rebranded it as FandangoNow. The transactional video service competes with services like iTunes and Walmart’s Vudu. M-GO was launched in 2012 as a joint venture between Technicolor and DreamWorks Animation.

Fandango is owned by NBCUniversal.

For Showtime, the deal with FandangoNow helps expand digital distribution for the premium network, which could be close to 1.5 million subscribers for its standalone OTT product.

Last month, Showtime, along with parent company CBS, signed a distribution deal with streaming TV service FuboTV.
