Starz joins Verizon’s +play

January 6, 2023

Verizon has announced Starz as the latest streaming service to join +play beta.

The +play beta serves as a content hub exclusive to Verizon customers to help them discover savings on select services and manage their subscriptions from entertainment, news, lifestyle, gaming and more – all in one place.

“We’re building +play to not only solve for our customers’ common pain points, but to give them value and savings they can’t get anywhere else,” said Erin McPherson, Verizon Chief Content Officer. “Adding Starz to the entertainment services available through +play beta gives our customers even more choice when it comes to accessing the content they love, and we’re thrilled to have them aboard.”

“We are excited to partner with Verizon for its +play platform making our premium original programming and robust movie library available in a seamless environment,” said Alison Hoffman, STARZ President of Domestic Networks. “Our fan favourite titles, including the Power Universe series, Outlander, P-Valley and the highly anticipated sophomore season of BMF that debuts [on January 6th], are just a few examples of the bold storytelling we are thrilled to make easily available to Verizon customers on their new content hub.”

With Starz on +play, Verizon customers can subscribe to the Starz app that offers the ability to stream or download Starz premium content, as well as the flagship domestic Starz service, including Starz encore, 17 premium pay-TV channels, and the associated on-demand and online services.

The platform builds on the content Verizon already offers through leading providers including Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+, discovery+ and AMC+, all of which are featured in the new service, and introduces new subscription service partners, like NFL+, NBA League Pass, HBO Max, Netflix, Peloton, A+E Networks (Lifetime Movie Club, HISTORY Vault, and A&E Crime Central), The Athletic, Calm and Duolingo, among many others – with more to come later this year.
