STARZ is an American premium cable and satellite television network that is owned by Lions Gate Entertainment, and is the flagship property of parent subsidiary Starz Inc. Programming on Starz consists of theatrically released movies and first-run original television series.
Starz operates six 24-hour, linear multiplex channels, a traditional subscription video on demand service, and an over-the-top streaming platforms that both acts as a TV Everywhere offering for Starz's linear television subscribers and is sold directly to streaming-only users. Starz's programming has been licensed for use by a number of channels and platforms worldwide.
In 2016, Starz launched a new app and over-the-top subscription service to compete with HBO Now and Showtime's OTT subscription service. The new app, which replaced the previous StarzPlay service, allowed users to access Starz programming regardless of whether they had a TV package or not. The Starz app also includes offline playback functionality, allowing users to download and watch content without an Internet connection.
Starz is offered as add-on subscriptions by Amazon Video for their customers. The content deal between Amazon and Starz not only offers the channel's current and back catalog of programming, but also movies and classic TV series currently airing on Encore and its branded networks, as well as live East Coast feeds of the Starz-branded networks and Encore.
Stars is available online in browsers as well as on native apps for the devices with iOS and Android, Amazon devices (Kindle Fire tablets and phones), streaming media players (Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Fire Stick, Roku, Nexus, NVIDIA Shield), Xbox One and One S, selected Smart TVs as well as Windows and MacOS PCs and laptops.
Starz is an extremely popular service with millions of subscribers. The problem is that it is a geo-restricted channel and is only available within the US. Even if you have an active Starz subscription but you are an expat living outside the US, traveler or simply are living in Europe, Asia or Australia, your IP will be detected and the streaming will be blocked.
How to watch Starz outside US using Smart DNS
Getflix has come up with Smart DNS - a solution which makes it possible for you to stream Starz outside the US (along with other geo-restricted services supported by Getflix). Smart DNS reroutes the part of your Internet traffic which is responsible for revealing your location to a dedicated US-based server and, without changing your original IP, makes it appear as if it was actually coming from within the US.
The solution is very easy to configure (refer to our support section or ask for help if you come across any problems), doesn’t affect your connection speed, doesn’t change your IP (so you can still access your local websites at the same time) and keeps your traffic secure. You can either set up your individual device or your home router (so that all your home network devices may access Starz). The solution is available for a variety of operating systems and devices and you can find what you need in our setup section.
