Roku has announced the arrival of the STARZ subscription streaming service on its devices. The standalone STARZ channel offers STARZ online streaming without the need for a traditional cable or satellite package.
The STARZ streaming service provides access to more than 2,700 titles each month, including STARZ original series like 'Outlander,' 'Power,' 'The Girlfriend Experience,' and the upcoming 'American Gods,' as well as popular movies including 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' and, later this year, 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens.' Likewise, subscribers can also watch content from STARZ sister networks STARZ ENCORE and MOVIEPLEX .The service lets up to four users watch programming simultaneously along with support for virtually unlimited downloads. In addition to Roku media players and Roku TVs, STARZ is also available for Chromecast, Apple TV (4th gen and newer), iPhones and iPads running iOS 7.0 or higher, Google Nexus Player, Sony Android TV, and most Android phones, tablets and TV devices.
Customers can subscribe to the STARZ digital service in-app from their supported devices or through PCs and MACs. Likewise, current STARZ cable and satellite subscribers can also use the app by authenticating their memberships. The service costs $9 per month and new users can receive a free 7 day trial.
Outside of STARZ, HBO also offers its own standalone streaming service, HBO Now, for $15 per month; Showtime has a subscription app for $11 per month; CBS offers its CBS All Access service for $6 per month; NBC has its Seeso comedy platform for $4 per month; Lionsgate offers several streaming platforms including Tribeca Shortlist, Comic-Con HQ, and the upcoming Laugh Out Loud; and Criterion and TCM are readying their own FilmStruck streaming service for independent, art-house, international, and contemporary cinema.
