STARZ premieres subscription streaming app for iOS devices and the Apple TV

Cord-cutters, take note. STARZ has launched its “STARZ” digital retail service, providing STARZ streaming subscriptions directly to consumers and offering what the company says is the first-ever download capabilities from a premium pay TV streaming service.

For $8.99 per month, you can have access to more than 2,400 selections each month, including STARZ series ranging from “Outlander,” “Power” and the upcoming “American Gods” and other TV content, to Hollywood hits and movies including Avengers: Age of Ultron and, later this year, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In celebration of the launch of the new STARZ app, the second installment premiere episode of the STARZ hit series, “Outlander,” will be made available beginning April 7 for streaming and download in advance of its official premiere on STARZ on April 9 at 9PM ET/PT.

The standalone “STARZ” service allows for up to four users to watch simultaneously and virtually unlimited downloads. STARZ is available today through the Apple Appe Store for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple TV, with the app supporting universal search through the Siri Remote. The new STARZ app is also available through the Google Play Store on a wide range of Android supported devices.

STARZ subscribers from cable, satellite and telco partners can also authenticate and view STARZ in the new app. Users can purchase a subscription or authenticate STARZ directly in-app or on their Mac/PC and watch every episode of every season of the best of STARZ’s original programming, as well as the service’s movie library of all the premium subscription networks in the U.S.
