Lionsgate-owned Starz announced that its premium streaming service STARZPLAY will launch on Virgin Media in the UK on Nov. 29.
The STARZPLAY premium streaming service will give Virgin TV customers in the UK the opportunity to watch STARZ series all in one place, with future STARZ 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 offers access to TV content such as “Vida”, “Sweetbitter”, “The White Princess” and “Mr. Mercedes” as well as films such as “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,” Starz President and CEO Chris Albrecht said.
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.
