Starz launches $8.99/mo. streaming app for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV with unlimited downloads

“Starz has launched a standalone subscription streaming app,” Hilary Lewis reports for The Hollywood Reporter. “The app costs $8.99 a month and is available for download from Apple’s app store — for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Apple TV.”

“The app allows up to four users to watch simultaneously and offers virtually unlimited downloads, a first for a premium cable channel app,” Lewis reports. “Existing Starz subscribers can authenticate and view Starz programming through the app as well.”

Lewis reports, “The service will give users access to more than 2,400 selections a month, including Starz series like Outlander and movies from Disney and Sony, including, later this year, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

    1. Bought TFA on Day One from iTunes…..along with nearly everyone else. 3X the normal download time but feeding Apple’s burgeoning annuity engine.

  1. I never see the reason why people use these mediocre movie services. I get all my movies FREE (less taxes and support) from my public LIBRARY! I have seen every movie I have ever wanted to see. I log in, select the movie I want, and go pick it up (or in some places download).
