Offline Viewing

The best Showtime content on-the-go — no Internet required.



Lead experience designer for the launch of downloads for iOS and Android apps for Showtime. Collaborated with product management to create the ideal experience for a minimum viable product launch.  Proposed new interaction patterns to help facilitate transition of current subscribers. Continue to collaborate on improvements and iterations.

See it live on the SHOWTIME and Showtime Anytime iOS App, the Android App and on Amazon Fire Tablets.


"When I am getting ready to travel, I want to download content quickly, so I can watch my favorite series without an internet connection."

During the design process, we created job stories to define core use cases. These stories helped to define priorities for a minimum viable product. Initial launch added download actions on the homepage assets (above, left) and a future iteration will include improvements to the series page experience that promotes simplified bulk downloading (above, right).


Intuitive Feedback 

Simple and effective messaging provide valuable system feedback to the user as they interact with the download feature. Several download states needed to be address, including: downloading, waiting, paused, completed, and removal.
