The Starzplay premium streaming service will offer Starz series all in one place, with future Originals launching exclusively on Starzplay on the same day as the US, including season two of Counterpart starring Academy Award-winner J.K. Simmons.
Starzplay features series such as Vida, Sweetbitter, The White Princess and Mr. Mercedes as well as a movie library featuring favourites like The Hunger Games for £4.99 a month.
“The partnership with Virgin Media is an exciting next step in the rollout of the Starzplay platform, expanding the audience for our wide range of Starz Originals, TV series and movies exclusively available on Starzplay to a whole new and expansive customer base,” said Chris Albrecht, President and CEO of Starz.
David Bouchier, Chief Digital Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media said, “The launch of Starzplay on Virgin TV will give our customers access to even more brilliant box-sets, amazing movies and gripping TV series such as ‘The White Princess’ and ‘Mr. Mercedes.’ This exciting addition to our platform means Virgin TV customers will be able to enjoy new Starz content as it launches in the US.”
Starzplay is now available on Virgin Media in the UK and Amazon Prime Video Channels in the UK and Germany, as well as in Canada under the Starz brand with upcoming launches in France, Italy and Spain.
