How Can I Watch Starz With My Prime Video Subscription?
If you’ve already subscribed to Prime Video, then you can add a Starz subscription to your account for an extra $8.99/month. Although the price is the same as if you’d gotten it without the Prime Video membership, and the features are basically identical, the benefit is that you’ll get shows and movies from both streaming services on the same platform, so you won’t have to keep switching back and forth when you’re looking for something to watch.
What Is There To Watch On Starz?
Having started out as a premium cable channel back in the early 90’s, Starz now operates as a streaming service offering a top selection of movies, shows and Starz originals.
Starz launched its own original programming in 2005, and since then they’ve expanded to offer a handful of hit shows like Outlander, The Girlfriend Experience and Hightown.
In terms of on-demand content, you’ll find 1,400 TV shows and movies to choose from with your subscription, as well as 17 genre-specific channels boasting premium content. On the STARZ Cinema channel for example, you’ll find a great selection of indie films. STARZ Edge appeals to young adults aged 18-35, STARZ in Black targets black audiences and focuses on the black film industry, and STARZ Kids & Family airs tons of great children’s programming.
Is It Worth Getting Starz With My Prime Video Subscription?
In short, it depends on what you’re looking for out of your TV watching experience. If you’re looking for quantity, Prime Video has a ton more content than Starz. That said, Starz has some great programming that isn’t available anywhere else. It also offers 1080p quality with most of its programming, with a select few in 4K, which is still better than many other more affordable streaming services.
That said, your best bet is to subscribe to the 7-day free trial and try Starz out for yourself to see if it’s worth it.
Can I Watch Starz And Prime Video For Free?
Yes. Amazon Prime Video offers a 30-day free trial, and Starz offers a 7-day free trial, so you can try out both streaming services for free. You can even trial them both together on Amazon Prime Video to get a feel of what it’s like to have access to their shared collections of content, but this feature is only available if you’re already a paying Amazon Prime Video subscriber.
Do Other Streaming Services Offer This Feature?
Yes. You can also add Starz through various add-on package offerings on Sling TV, fuboTV, Hulu + Live TV and YouTube TV. So if you’ve already subscribed to one of those streaming services or think one of them would be the better option for you, adding Starz onto your subscription will always be an easy, seamless process.
