STARZ Launches OTT Service for Android TV

STARZ recently launched their own OTT service. The monthly fee of $8.99 gave users access to all of STARZ’s movies and shows, and those of its children companies Encore and Movieplex. While it has only been available to mobile users for the past month, it made a lot of sense for the app to move to TVs.

That day has finally come. Just before I/O, their OTT app launched for TVs in the Play Store.


The launch marks the most recent successful deployment for the STARZ App that provides STARZ streaming subscriptions directly to consumers and offers the first-ever download capabilities from a premium pay TV streaming service. Launched last month, the STARZ app is offered on a variety of devices such as: Chromecast, Apple TV (4th gen and newer), iPhones and iPads running iOS 7.0 or higher, Google Nexus Player, Sony Android TV, as well as most Android phones, tablets and TV devices.

This update consolidates all of their mobile and TV offerings into a single app, making it a lot easier to get users to install the right app. It’s free to get started, with a 7-day free trial. After that, you’ll be asked to start subscribing.
