Note: To search for a video/channel/playlist, you have to write with an EXTERNAL keyboard what you want in the box on Showtime’s homepage (with a magnifying glass icon).

The plugin does not handle how a video is played, it is the work of Showtime, if in the middle of the video playback it fails, the audio is synched off or other, please report it to andoma.

If by any reason when navigating feeds, your ps3 crashes it is because the memory of ps3 is extremely limited, and because of that navigating extremely fast will crash Showtme itself. There have been efforts to improve the plugin since the Beta version was released so it wouldn’t need so much memory.

Short answer NO. You need CFW and will get banned if you play online.

Hi everyone, I'm new to play station 3 but I love online gaming, I also love watching movies but what I want to know is. Can I install showtime/navi-x on my ps3 slim & still be able to receive updates from playstation, access psn & online gaming? I don't want to install showtime/navi-x & lose the ability to upgrade & play online.

Please let me know. Thank you.

I always have issues with Showtime. Some upgrades ago I lost the tiled view and I got the list view with no icons for everything, besides all the channels I pinned down in the home page disappeared.

This last update was great at first, I received a notification for a new version from inside the application, it downloaded and installed fine and all the bugs went away: the change views option returned and I got the lost channels back.

It is an excellent version... but after close it, every time I try to launch Showtime again I receive an error message. It runs fine from inside Multiman. I will try to delete it an reinstall it from scratch.
