Starz App Review: Movies and Originals Are a Good Alternative to Netflix Burnout

7 July, 2023

Starz launched in 1994 as a premium cable channel, but it is now known for its streaming service, too. The company has invested heavily in original productions with the ever-expanding Power universe and series such as The Serpent Queen, a strategy that has paid off with audiences. Fans -- including me -- enjoy P-Valley (which holds a 100% rating with Rotten Tomatoes critics), year-round Power spinoffs and the critically acclaimed Outlander. And you can stream Starz without any commercials. While Starz may not have a large stable of content like Netflix, Disney Plus and Hulu, the company is locked in a deal with Universal to air films following their theatrical releases. It's also the place to watch Lionsgate films. You can count on it to watch major features including John Wick 4, and it's the exclusive streaming home of Sony's Spider-Man: No Way Home, Venom: Let There Be Carnage and Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
