Starz, following in the footprints of other streaming giants, has become one of the more popular movies and TV shows streaming platforms out there. The services provided by Starz is available to a total of 19 countries and for both Android and iOS users. This
Starz has some pretty awesome content and there’s no denying it. The channel offers a library of hundreds of movies and TV shows with over 10K hours of blockbuster Hollywood movies, TV shows, documentaries, cartoons and even same-day-as-the-US series. Plus, Starz has content all the way from the Middle East and India as well so fans of Arabic or Bollywood TV shows and movies are in for a treat as well.
All content available of Stars is in high definition (HD) and in ultra high definition (4K). The app also allows subscribers to access it and stream content on multiple devices simultaneously.
The app is a consolidation of Starz Play, Encore Play and Movie Plex all for $9 subscription charges per month. This is slightly higher than both Netflix and Hulu but is similar to channels like HBO Now and Showtime. With popular content like Ant-Man, The Girlfriend Experience, Inside Out and hundreds more, the subscription charges are pretty decent.
Previously people had to subscribe separately to Starz and Encore through their cable providers but this handy app makes it a lot easier now. People who have already subscribed on the cable can also use the same subscription details to log on to the app with their cable login.
Perhaps the best thing about Starz is that once you subscribe to the platform, there are literally no advertisements. The $9 price on it is therefore justified as the non-commercial versions of Netflix and Hulu are around the same price as the basic no-ad subscription charges of Starz.
New users can also avail a 30 day period of completely free content without subscription charges. All you need to do is register your account and you can begin your free trial instantly.
The payment process has also been made easier. There are two basic ways you can pay for your subscription. One way is to bill directly through your credit card. You can also pay through your mobile operator or SIM card but the latter may not be the most convenient way to go about for many users especially those in the Middle East and North Africa.
Starz can connect with your smart TV as well. You can view all your content on Chromecast, Apple TV and more simply by connecting your phone app with your TV. This way the entire household can enjoy content on a big HD screen.
Starz also allows users to download content and watch it when they are offline. This essentially one of the best features any streaming platform can offer. Since internet might not be available all the time, this offline watching option can come quite handy. Other features offered by this versatile streaming channel include active subbing and dubbing of content. This feature is obviously not available for every movie or TV show in the library but a decent number of movies and TV shows can be dubbed or subbed simply by the tap of a finger. Arabic subtitles and dubs are available. You can also watch select content with French dubs as well. Despite the awesome features and content Starz has to offer, it’s surprising to see so many negative user comments and reviews for the app. Perhaps it’s because many people compare it to the leading streaming platform Netflix or maybe there are actual problems with the app some users face. Users have complained of connectivity issues with the app, poor payment policies and low quality of the downloaded content.
