1. What is Starz & what can I stream on it?

Starz started as a channel on cable television, but because streaming has become more and more popular, they’ve made it into a streaming service that you can subscribe to.

They’ve got big-ticket movies like Spider-Man: Homecoming, Venom, and This is the End and popular TV shows like Heels, P-Valley, and Spartacus that you can instantly stream.


2. Why should I pay for an annual Starz Movies subscription?

If you’re interested in a long-term relationship with your Starz Movie subscription, pay annually instead of monthly to get a big discount.

When you pay the $8.99/month, it ends up costing you $107.88 for a year. But an annual subscription, where you pay for all 12 months at once, will cost you $74.99, which is 30.5% less!

Starz sometimes gives discounts on their monthly subscription. Here are a few of the discounts that they’ve given in the past:

  • September 2022: $5/month for the first three months
  • August 2022: $3/month for the first six months
  • January 2022: 6-month Starz subscription for $19.95
