I think you're asking is there any way to get Sho for free on your Tivo. No, there isn't.

You can get Sho for free via various illegal apps on Android and an Android streaming device. But not only is that wrong, but the quality is bad, and you constantly have to look for new sources on shady websites. I don't recommend it.

The cheapest legal way is to get a Spotify student account. For $5/month you get Spotify, Hulu and Showtime. Watch on any streaming device (Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, etc.). Fire Sticks will probably be $20 in a couple of weeks. And the cheapest Roku is always $25. If switching sources is too confusing, then get a cheap universal remote.

If you can't get the student deal or know a student willing to share a login, then you'll need to get it one of the ways you listed or through Hulu (same price as Amazon add-on).

I've had Showtime for years (still do) yet have watched it maybe twice. I just don't see anything worth watching on it. I've tried to watch Sacha Baron Cohen, and while he approaches brilliance, he always goes too far and is too gross to watch.

We've been buying my son the Spotify student subscription for a few years now and were happy to see them add Hulu but I didn't realize it also gave access to Showtime. The Showtime access would be through the Showtime app on whatever platforms support it or is it through Hulu?

Yeah, you definitely need to upgrade. It's free. Works only on the regular Showtime app, not through Hulu and not through Showtime Anytime. Kind of weird, as I would have expected it to work inside Hulu, but it doesn't.
