Premium TV network Starz recently launched a new app that allows users to stream the network's content on all of their devices. Starz is already one of the largest premium TV networks in the US and now its standalone app helps it expand its reach to include consumers who are no longer willing to pay for satellite or cable.
The new Starz app is a standalone streaming service available for all iOS, Android and Apple TV devices. The service costs just $9 per month and users are not required to purchase a cable or satellite subscription. Despite the low price, users will have access to more than 2,400 videos and television series, including original programming and blockbuster hits. Additionally, Starz users will have the option to download nearly any program to view offline later.
The app serves as direct competition to similar standalone streaming services aimed at millennials and other cord-cutting consumers.
