Starz Play now available on Roku

http://www.multichannel.com/news/con...rz-play/393396

Just announced today. Good news.

If you subscribe to Starz it's user authenticated of course.

Much more user friendly for me than firing up the Xbox 360 to watch Starz content.

With Ash vs Evil Dead premiering in October, those of you who don't subscribe can now leach off a friend's log-in than download torrents.

Unfortunately Starz isn't like HBO or Showtime and doesn't have a self contained non-cable streaming service.

Re: Starz Play now available on Roku


Starz will launch its TV Everywhere service Starz Play on Roku players, the network said Tuesday. The deal allows consumers with Roku Players and Roku TV models the ability to access Starz Play who are authenticated Starz premium subscribers, said network officials. Roku customers can find Starz Play in the “Movies & TV” category within the Roku Channel Store, said network officials. “Starz is pleased to launch Starz Play on Roku devices, expanding the reach of Starz Play to millions of Roku customers,” said Scott Barton, Senior Vice President of Branded Digital Content and Products for Starz in a statement. “The Roku platform is a significant addition for our TV Everywhere service and we’re proud to give subscribers another option to watch our critically-acclaimed STARZ Original series and premium movies.” - See more at: http://www.multichannel.com/news/con....7q9FznqF.dpuf

Too bad Dish isn't a participating provider.

Needs authenticated?? The new trend is allowing subscriptions on Roku or whatever, stand alone, like HBO and many others are doing now. Starz is a little behind the times....

Re: Starz Play now available on Roku

The free episodes are in 5.1 Dolby Digital Plus, and looks like a decent selection of movies for subscribers. With Netflix pissing me off, I'd pay for this if I could get it without a cable subscription.

I let Netflix lapse myself.

Crappy app. The audio doesn't work. Sucks since I need it to get episode 2.7 of Power which for whatever reason DTV doesn't offer in it's VOD.

I never had much luck getting their iPad app to work well.

I had that problem too. You need to change your Roku main audio setting to stereo and then it will work.
