Showtime Media Player Being Renamed

Andreas Ă–man is renaming Showtime to Movian, this is mainly due to the name Showtime already being used by a long running US cable/Satellite network, here is a quote from the source:

Showtime Media Player Being Renamed

I have decided to give this project a new name. This was not an easy decision but still a necessary one.

The new name will be Movian

The reasons for this is mainly that the name Showtime is used by a big US TV network. Thus it is currently hard to find Showtime by just googling it. Also, as I plan to release Showtime in various app stores in near future it may result in naming conflicts or even rejections.

The transition will be gradual with changes both to the application itself and this website which will eventually be migrated into

Hopefully it should be as transparent and painless as possible for the users.

More updates will follow as the migration continues.
