  • Enjoying this app


    By Debbie Coffman
    I started the STARZ streaming app free trial, after watching the first two seasons of Outlander on Netflix, so I could continue watching the remaining two seasons and it has been well worth it. I could hardly sleep, trying to get them all watched before the seven days. When I discovered outlander was picked up for another two seasons, I wasn’t about to stop STARZ when the free trial was over. It’s a wonderful series, they found the perfect actors for each character, who truly do give their all as well as going above and beyond their talent with such intimacy that truly pulls you in as they bring their characters to life, making you actually get to know and love or love to hate each and every one of them. I’m keeping STARZ, I can watch it anywhere I’m able to get on Wi-Fi. It’s perfect for me, there’s much you can watch weather hits movies or series.
  • App is terrible ( not a content review)


    By ajay1760
    I don’t understand how this late in the game STARZ has such a terrible app. The interface isn’t good but the part that is most frustrating to me is that it’s nearly impossible to fast forward or rewind a show/movie. Dragging the bar at the bottom does not work to rewind/fast-forward, it just freezes the video then you have to hit pause then hit play for it to jump back to where you started from. I’ve had to use the 10-second jump feature to fast forward or rewind large parts of a video. And the best part is, when hitting the 10-second jump repeatedly, instead of rewinding/fast-forwarding 10-seconds, it only goes 6-seconds. I’m not paying for a streaming app where the basic features don’t work. The ability to rewind/fast-forward is something I’ve always taken for granted because no other streaming service has a problem with this, it’s such a basic functionality. I just paid for the first month after a free trial, but this is not worth it and I’ll be cancelling. There’s way too many other options with good content out there to pay for an app that has a lazy, outdated interface and lacks basic functionality.
  • Possibly the easiest movie app ever made


    By spatrickmartin
    STARZ app is awesome in so many aspects. It has TONS of great movies and a nice selection of very well done and unique series such as Attila and The White Queen. It's also the easiest to navigate by far of almost every app on my phone I use to view movies on. They have quite the selection for the money and it's something I don't see ever canceling unless things go downhill but I've had this subscription a good couple of years now or near enough. I can't recommend how good it is with something for everyone, including the children. With this price point I often wondered why I ever bothered with some of my other subscriptions but they all seem to have something to offer that's unique but if I could only have my pick of two or three, STARZ would definitely be in my top 3.
  • Does not allow the use of stars app


    By VIPER31415
    The description says that we can use the starz app but after signing up to the starz monthly app and tried to sign into the starz app I get a log in error. I have tried on all my devices iPad Pro, iPhone 7, apple tc 4K, Samsung 4K tv and non apple devices. I am locked to ONLY using the tv app (to watch starz content via the starz Apple TV channel). I contacted starz and they said apple needs to release our credentials to them because as of now starz cannot see a subscription when signed up via the Apple TV channel. I also contacted apple and after an hour of chatting they finally told me that starz monthly subscription is ONLY allowed for use with the tv app via apple devices or smart TVs with the tv app and NOT the starz app. I told the rep that the current description is misleading and should be revised to let us know that we CANNOT use the starz app with this subscription and we CANNOT use the starz monthly app with our current tv provider unless that’s still in the works and will be available soon and is so please let us know in the app description as well.
  • Terribly glitchy app


    By EcGwyn
    Love STARZ content but the app is the worst I’ve experienced for any streaming service, paid or not. -Sometimes buffering takes place mid-episode and takes several seconds despite having very high-speed internet. -Sound goes out periodically then resumes later in the episode, sometimes multiple times (sometimes for a second or two a time, sometimes for several minutes). I’ve been using the app for 3 days and it’s happened at least 3 times on different episodes. -Often an episode won’t play when highlighted from the series page, and the entire app freezes up. I have to exit and reopen the app then re-navigate, going to series, show, then selecting the episode from the relevant season and click through that way to “wake it up” instead of just selecting the most recently watched episode as soon as I open the app and resuming where I left off. -Sometimes when resuming an episode, it spins the timer wheel indefinitely no matter what or how many times I try (even restarting Apple TV) until I first select and play a different episode before returning to the one I actually wanted to watch. Again, having to find a way to “wake it up” from a freeze. Can’t believe there are this many issues with a paid premium channel app, it’s barely worth it to watch the content jumping through so many hoops to do so, and it certainly doesn’t encourage me to continue a subscription beyond the trial.
  • Enjoying the content, but removing ads for episodes (at least beyond the pilot) would be nice


    By RBragantini
    Update: it seems like what I thought was another episode playing was actually a 30 second ad. It was difficult for me to tell the difference between the ad and a recap, so I thought the episodes were mixed up. Original review: I’ve liked the stability of the app so far, but it seems like some episodes are mixed up. For example, episode 2 of The White Princess, “Hearts and Minds,” is actually missing. When I’ve tried to play the episode in the app, an episode from “The Spanish Princess” plays instead. I’ve tried this across devices, so it seems like a problem with the app itself, and not my access to it. It’s not a huge deal, but it did make me log off Starz and onto another streaming service to watch something else during my downtime.
  • Black Sails


    By WhyIsANickNameNecessary
    I subscribed to STARZ to watch Black Sails after catching the first few episodes on Netflix overseas and got hooked. I loved this show. I love pirates and Treasure Island was one of my favorite books as a young boy. I was a bit disappointed this show only has 4 seasons, but it ended well. Definitely not Disney pirates. I plan to keep the app to evaluate for a bit. I have heard good things about some of the other series. I hope I find more shows as binge-worthy. The app itself works very well and I rarely had issues except with occasionally losing my place when moving devices, but this is a minor grievance and it worked well enough most of the time. I will continue to subscribe at least a few more months if I find some other series on here that I like.
  • Not renewing subscription


    By cmm472
    I had an annual subscription to Starz but I am not going to renew. First, you run a promo ad before every movie with no way to skip it, but a box with an “add to playlist” prompt. The auto play feature is awful and never matches my taste; I don’t want to watch Venom and I don’t like violent films. The ratings screen pops up at random. I would be happy to provide ratings but more consistently than a film a week. You have a recommendation list, but again it is nothing that matches my taste. Your movie library is pretty limited, and again you seem to show quite a few violent movies and TV shows. If you would improve the Roku app and the recommendation algorithm, I would probably keep my subscription, but currently the setup spoils the viewing experience. I contacted customer service quite a while ago (pre COVID) about my concerns and got a snarky response about how you had no plans to improve anything, so I guess I don’t need Starz anymore.
  • App is fine I guess... service sucked though


    By 10thDoc.Who
    Lately I’ve been having an issue with watching certain movies on the app. The following message that ‘this title is not provided by your provider’ appears. Even though I have a cable subscription to not only STARZ but it’s subsidiary channels (i.e. Encore). While I understand that most people choose to pay for individual services via the app; decidedly if I paid $4.99 a month for the streaming service and such I’d more than likely be allowed access to all the titles I wished to watch. But I have a so called ‘grandfathered package’ with my cable company which allows me access to basically ALL the so called premium channels for a significant discount. My overall point being is that if you’re going provide a service to one customer and not the other over the difference of ‘service provider ‘ or whatever at least have the decency to have an app that wouldn’t bother to show me something I could not watch.
  • The constant ads are maddening


    By nashville jules
    They have 2-3 standout series right now, but when you’re binging a show, they have a forced ad for their other content that u can’t fast forward through. They’re the same 3 ads, they’re all for shows and movies that are 10-15 yrs old. Anytime u watch a bts extra feature that’s 4 mins long, you have to watch a forced ad for the first minute. Let ME search your app and find your content instead of shoving it down my throat. Even though I love power and outlander the ads are almost more than I can take. None of my other subscription services inflict these in this way, in this quantity. The 60 second one that’s playing right now has graphic horror movies featured and I dont watch that kind of content bc it scares me. So bc I can’t ff I have to avert my eyes from my own tv for the 30 seconds that it’s playing. When I’m forced to have it on my screen before every episode that plays almost??? It’s too much. If they don’t stop soon, I’ll be cancelling my service.
