Starz Streaming App Available on Roku13 Jul, 2016 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Starz, the pay-TV network recently acquired by Lionsgate, July 13 announced its standalone subscription-streaming app is now available on the Roku platform, including streaming media devices and branded televisions.
Launched in April, the free Starz app gives subscribers ($8.99 month) access to more than 2,700 titles every 30 days, including original Starz series “Outlander,” “Power” and the upcoming “American Gods.” Movies include Disney’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and, later this year, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Roku users can sign up for the Starz service directly via the app on a Roku device.
Other original series include: “Black Sails,” “The Girlfriend Experience,” “Survivor’s Remorse,” “Blunt Talk” and “Ash vs Evil Dead,” and the first Starz original movie, The Dresser.
Third-party movies include: Inside Out, Pixels, Concussion, The Good Dinosaur, Ricki and the Flash, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, Cinderella, Tomorrowland, The Wedding Ringer and Ant-Man, among others.
The Starz app on Roku is also a single destination for all subscribers who want to stream Starz content. Indeed, subscribers to Starz sister networks Starz Encore and Movieplex can also use the app for access to streaming.
