Showtime Streams Billions S2 Premiere Early

As it did for season three of The Affair and season six of Homeland, Showtime is showing the season two premiere of Billions early on the many Net TV services where the premium channel can be streamed.

The drama, which stars Paul Giamatti as a Manhattan District Attorney determined to take down a shady hedge fund manager (Damian Lewis), will not air its season two debut on the pay TV Showtime until February 19.

However, the first episode of the new season is now available on the online edition of Showtime.

In addition to the early online premiere, the pay TV Showtime will offer a free preview of the channel to more than 73 million households from February 17 through February 19. This will allow pay TV customers to watch the season two debut of Billions as well as the entire weekend of Showtime programming.
