Time Warner Cable subscribers will get unprecedented access to online content and video-on-demand services starting within the next month, thanks to a new agreement with Starz.
The arrangement includes access to Starz and Encore programs via PCs and Macs, iOS devices such as the iPhone and iPad, and select Android and other mobile devices, plus Movieplex, Retroplex and Indieplex.
Expanded VOD services include bonus material for Starz Original series on Starz On Demand, including “Da Vinci’s Demons,” the second season of “Magic City” (premieres June 14) and “The White Queen” (premieres Aug. 10).
“Starz and Encore are great services offering blockbuster Hollywood movies as well as an impressive commitment to original series programming,” said Susan Weinstein, Time Warner Cable’s group VP of content acquisition. “This is another example of our commitment to bring TV Everywhere to our customers.”
