Navigation
by HeatherRaeh on 2020/08/11 14:33
Please add in a skip intro button/option. Also navigating episodes in a tv series is much too difficult and clunky. It should be more streamlined and easier to use
Apple TV App
by I'm THE GingerBradMan on 2020/08/10 18:32
This review is for the Apple TV version of the STARZ app...while content is great, some “features” of the app are very frustrating. When watching a series, I understand the need to ask every few episodes if I am still watching, however, it is unnecessary to show me a commercial for other content each time I click continue. Also, I appreciate the ability to “skip” this commercial, however 9 times out of 10, just as I am pressing the button to “skip”, that button suddenly updates to “add to Playlist”. So, Then I have to go all the way out of whatever series I am watching, go into the playlist, remove whatever it was that I didn’t intend to add, return to the series and try to get to the current episode and continue my viewing. VERY disruptive and unnecessary steps. Please fix this in next update!
Shady
by helpwasgreat on 2020/08/10 16:07
This app is sneaky. It offers this trial rate but literally each time I enter an email it says “the account expired and needs to be reactivated at full price! I used 4 different emails to test it and it definitely seems like a trick because most people probably just pay the full amount. I’ve never had a subscription so I know it’s bologna. Byeeee starz
App is horrible
by juicykatt69 on 2020/08/10 06:25
Will not let me log in I canceled as soon as I subscribed smh
Can’t clear watching history?
by bbboy67 on 2020/08/10 05:17
My issue is why there is no way to delete the continue watching feature. A series ends and yet it remains there stuck on the last episode. A nice feature to have, but overlooked apparently unlike other apps.
App refuses to let me log in
by Branzaddy on 2020/08/10 02:11
I can not access my account. Every time I log in it says error: forbidden and will not let me in. What is the point of paying for the app if I can’t get on to watch my shows.
Can’t sign in with TV provider
by Juicejunky on 2020/08/10 01:25
Tried to sign in for 20 minutes with my TV provider with no luck at all. It’s very frustrating!! I ended up just deleting the app.
3 Months for $5
by cgvhbjj on 2020/08/09 20:33
I didnt get the 3 months. I was charged the $5.00 for 1 month and when it’s time to renew in September I will be Charged $8.99! Not Cool! Not Cool! NOW U CAN’T SEND A REVIEW BECAUSE EVERY NICKNAME IN THE WORLD HAS BEEN TAKEN! REALLY!!!! I will give it 5 STARS AND WATCH IT GO BUT THEY DONT DESERVE ANY.
No playback
by Yemaya@1 on 2020/08/09 17:03
App won’t play any videos even when I changed the settings
Picture quality is washed out and grey!!!
by avnyc11 on 2020/08/08 18:36
Still not fixed even with the latest update!!! I have an OLED screen on my iPhone and on my TV and images with lots of blacks appear washed out and grey instead of black. You can tell because when letter boxing occurs, which happens on a lot of movies, the black of the letter boxing is grey instead of black on my TV (LG OLED C6) and my iPhone (XS Max). With other streaming services such as HBO, Showtime, and Netflix, letterboxing bars are truly black and not grey. This needs to be addressed otherwise I'll cancel my service. I'm not risking ruining my TV and phone screens!
No sound
by Antonia7755. on 2020/08/08 14:22
Get it together STARZ you still don’t know bad boys for life has no sound?
Will not let me watch anything
by Tinasofrustated on 2020/08/07 19:17
I can’t watch anything and then it keeps telling me to sign in or get started if I can’t watch I want my money back period
Frustrating

Won’t let me log in with Hulu subscription
Everything is locked!
by Gretnagal on 2020/08/07 14:39
Just signed up for 3 months for 4.99 ea. Shows will play on my devices but everything on my Smart TV is Locked. It says, “To watch this title, upgrade your account. Call 800-675-1111.” However, the call doesn’t even go through. I can’t tell if it’s a fake number or just terrible customer service. And, Upgrade Your Account??? What’s that all about?
Stole my money
by brenda xiomae on 2020/08/07 00:32
This app stole my Money and none of the videos play on my phone !!
How is this app so bad?!
by i leave on star reviews on 2020/08/06 23:33
I’ve spent 30 minutes just trying to get logged in. It won’t even take me to AT&T U-Verses website to login, because it can’t even get pas authorization
Buffering constantly
by Mrrrmmm on 2020/08/04 02:44
The constant buffering and the app shutting down completely is unacceptable in a streaming app. I have Netflix and Amazon Prime, neither of which ever do this. Here’s an idea, fix it.
A lot of bugs
by Missodessa on 2020/08/03 05:46
Update 8/2/20 Auto play the next episode in a series I’m watching, cool...auto play a random show I didn’t ask for NO THANK YOU! There’s not setting that I can find to disable this which means every time I finish the last episode or end of a movie STARZ picks something they think I wanna watch to play 12 seconds after. If i don’t stop it before it plays I now have a random thing in my “continue playing” list...this is such an annoying design flaw. This app has consistently made watching starz a horrible experience. 1. Time out...if you watch and leave your device the app does not keep your place it reloads the app and you have to find the series you were watching again and then click on the episode which is very annoying. 2. When watching a series the next episodes does not automatically play I have to go back to the menu and select it. Also you can’t just click on the episode icon they add and extra step and you have to click the episode then select play at the top. I don’t understand the point of this at all. If these things were fixed I wouldn’t have any complaints but these 2 things making watching on the app very unenjoyable. So I’m just going to list my top issues. 1. App randomly stops playing video & it’s freezes forcing me to close it out and restart 2. Skip button appears on video but does not allow me to click it...seems to be non responsive 95% of the time 3. App randomly crashes This iPad app has been increasingly worse in the last few months. The last two updates have really been BAD. I’m not sure if I will continue my starz subscription since this is the primary place I watch starz on and these issues making watching anything unbearable I can’t get through more than an episode or two without an issue
Keyboard doesn't work... App messes with keyboard...
by CPLANAS1985 on 2020/08/03 05:12
I can't log in to my provider because it won't display my keyboard properly... (iPhone 7 SE, iOS 13.6)
Terrible recommendation algorithm
by cmm472 on 2020/08/02 03:00
The autoplay feature needs improvement or a way to disable it. The content that automatically shows never matches my taste and is never anything I want to watch, ditto for the recommendation algorithm. I thought Starz got new movies every month; I’ve subscribed for almost a year and rarely see new content. I got a great deal on my subscription but it really was a waste because I rarely watch and will not be renewing. One of the bigger companies needs to buy them out and merge the content (Disney?), or maybe Epix and Starz could combine. As it stands, Starz really doesn’t have much to offer.
Good app
by shutequation284 on 2020/08/02 01:15
It is a good but I would add mor anime like avatar last air bender all fast and furious moive but it is a good app plz add avatar last airbender
not voiceover friendly
by Dran666 on 2020/08/01 23:07
i was very disapponted to see that my voiceover was unable to recognise any of the titles. i can go into each one and find it in the info panel but doing so for every single title is not enough frankly. every other streaming app is completely accessable to the blind like myself. hulu, netflix, disney plus, and even apps like crunchy roll and funimation are all accessable. for sars not to be is not within industry standards anymore, they are the only one and it is a simple fix if they are willing. please fix this by labelling your titles with voiceover tags so the screen reader can read it. only then can i give a real review
Decent app
by J Schesny on 2020/08/01 22:12
Needs some improvement such as when you add titles to your playlist it should sync on your profiles on other devices. I have to add to playlist on my iPad, then to it to my Firestick. Also when the devices aren’t synced, it doesn’t keep series updated to what episode your now. Next suggestion have playlist as the first row.
STARZ
by DavidRuffin13 on 2020/08/01 17:14
Can I watch starz live ?
login through TV provide might not show
by wife’s tech support on 2020/08/01 12:25
I had some problem finding the “login through tv provider” at first but now it shows up. Strange...not sure why. But otherwise it’s good
Black Screen
by MiyaWilt on 2020/08/01 08:39
Dying to watch the seasons on Outlander not offered on Netflix so I made an account and downloaded the Starz app. I login just fine but I can’t play any of the outlander episodes. I click on one and I get a black screen. I’ve deleted the app, restarted by phone (newest iPhone), and reinstalled the app but nothing works. Can’t seem to find any real customer support either. No live chats or customer service email available, only a phone number with a number that’s “out of service”.
Can’t Log In
by AilingLlama1107 on 2020/07/31 03:13
Currently have access to STARZ through my Spectrum internet service but the app won’t allow me to log in - the few times I’m able to it crashes mid-episode and requires me to log in again.
MAKE IT ABLE TO DOWNLOAD ON PS4
by kdjfnrifnfnj on 2020/07/30 07:26
Unable to download the app on my ps4 and watch shows and movies on my tv. Only reason I unsubscribed.
Needs more movies
by b.p.29 on 2020/07/29 21:14
The selection of movies could be better
Disappointed
by Funny040500 on 2020/07/25 12:11
Doesn’t work with xfinity so the app is useless to many subscribers. I subscribe and pay for starz and can’t use the app. Very disappointed.
STARZ app buffering
by mf830 on 2020/07/24 21:56
Why is it that I cannot watch an episode in its entirety without freezing and/or buffering? In this day and age it should work seamlessly. I have Netflix, Hulu, Prime and HBOMax and I NEVER have problems. Fix it!!
App doesn’t work with my Spectrum account!
by Krellno on 2020/07/24 21:26
I pay monthly for my Spectrum service. It includes Starz. The Starz app on my devices worked well until it just went blank months ago. Starz won’t accept my passwords etc to get my app working. What’s wrong Starz? I can only give this one star,if they’re where zero stats I would rate it Accordingly! Frustrated and hurt.
Don’t work
by kiss mylips on 2020/07/22 03:55
When I click on a show it’s shows nothing but black it doesn’t show the movie are show your clicking on
Not what I expected...more like a scam!
by Supercrowingparrot on 2020/07/20 22:16
I thought I was going to be able to watch this through Hulu, but no you have to stream from phone or tablet and use up all your battery. Then they overcharged me and didn’t refund until I took it up with my credit card company. SCAM!
STARZ
by Trashelleeeeeeee on 2020/07/20 14:45
The app was working fine at first,but now it’s like you have to keep tapping the screen to keep it on the app freezes the movie won’t play you have to keep going back into the phone to restart the whole movie it’s messing up & not working I’m uninstalling and unsubscribing to it because it’s not working
Not working
by RDTye on 2020/07/20 14:44
Won’t load videos...worked fine the first 2 days and now even if I download the episode, won’t play. Trash app
Worst app
by Krys P on 2020/07/20 08:24
This app has so many issues with Samsung smart TVs. No matter what you do the app will not open. I tried watching a series on my iPhone and the app says the title is t offered by my provider. Makes no sense when I was just watching it yesterday. Save your money do not pay extra for STARZ. It rarely works
It’s not just the app, it’s the website too
by IceCreamBarbie on 2020/07/20 06:18
After reading all the comments about the functionality of the app, it’s not just the app, it’s Starz online presence itself. The website is just as dysfunctional as the app. I used my laptop to sign up for the free trial and the site wouldn’t let me navigate the home page or the browse page and in order to find anything to watch, I had to individually type all letters of the alphabet to find an interesting title. The only page that was visible was the schedule page that showed a list of the scheduled movies and shows to play on the Starz channel. I’m not sure if the reason it’s so dysfunctional is because it’s a free trial, but if it is then the marketing department at Starz needs to hire a new marketing director and adopt a better plan because I’m definitely not paying 8.99 for service that’s a pain in the ass to navigate. Also, I thought I canceled the free trial but apparently that didn’t go through and I was charged anyway and had to open a dispute which is taking 4 days to get my money back because their Tier 2 department is not open on the weekends and for some reason the customer service representatives do not have the authorization to issue refunds, nor do they have the technological capabilities to cancel your subscription from their end, so they ask you a bunch of questions that seem really trivial to the problem you’re having. Starz definitely missed the memo that the content AND the service have to be good.
Shameful...
by Lovingproby on 2020/07/20 03:03
U have “some” good content... But your start up is so SLOW and you force us to go through major trials to stop a Subscription!!! Worst.... You make it so hard to watch the shows. U make it seem like our WiFi / internet is SLOW or the Problem but for whatever reason its your APP!!!!! I’M SO DONE WITH YOU. YOUR CONTENT ISN’T THAT GREAT TO STAY ANYMORE!!! Can’t wait for my script to be up!!!
Starz needs to stop being greedy
by JoeyBones621 on 2020/07/19 21:04
I like that fact that other premium channels I pay for with my cable include their streaming app, like HBO Max, great content im sure but not worth double paying for it. GREEDY
How can an app be so bad?
by _keekdasneak on 2020/07/19 17:24
This app doesn’t work more often than it does. Whenever I try to connect it using the STARZ app on my Samsung smart TV, it takes so long to load the show I’m trying to watch. It’ll go through the normal loading circle but then freeze after a minute or so. I have to wait at least 3-5 minutes for it to unfreeze and play the video, but then the video plays without sound. I need to then turn off my TV completely and restart the process again. The sound will work the second time around but it’s a 10 minute process to play a video on my TV. This happens, without fail, every single time. I don’t even try to cast it from my phone or iPad because the video will just never play doing it that way. I just downloaded the app on my phone and it told me that because I’m not connected to wifi, I can’t stream the video and to change my settings. I have unlimited data, for context. I go to change my settings and turn on data for the app (because for some reason it was by default set to off), go back to the app, and it still tells me to change my settings because mobile data isn’t on for the app........... So i go back to the settings and check, everything’s good, go back to the app, but same message. I then go back to the settings and turn mobile data off, go back to the app and same message but in a different format. I go back to the settings and switch it on, off, then on, go back to the settings and same message as the first time. I close out the app completely, go back in, and same message. I even soft reset my phone and am still getting the same message. I’ve had issues with my TV app for months now so I know it’s just how the app works. My TV is brand new (bought just a few months ago) and plays all other apps perfectly, so I know it’s not my TV. The issue with the phone app just started today which is what really sent me over the edge. I literally only have a STARZ subscription to watch Outlander. If this show wasn’t the only place to stream the newer seasons, I would’ve gotten rid of it a long time ago. But here we are 🙂
The worst app ever
by Nikas876 on 2020/07/19 01:26
I just subscribe all I get preview of the shows want to watch. I don’t get it.

Poor Connection
by Reanna 110907 on 2020/07/15 02:16
For whatever reason, STARZ is the only app on my smart TV that I cannot watch an episode to its entirety... it always freezes and glitches... doesn’t matter if I restart it reboot it or anything it’s soo freaking annoying.. especially in the middle of a good series
Awesome app
by strangerthingsfan00012 on 2020/07/15 00:00
The app is awesome it has all of my favorite movies and shows like I use it everyday the only problem is that it has a problem with volume that’s all
Junk
by fehdjenc on 2020/07/14 04:12
It asks you to make an account and then it goes to a black screen
Am I missing something?
by JayDun79 on 2020/07/14 02:16
Every thing is good. Except the fact that a series has to be started over for every new episode , would rather make sense to have it continuously run ....idk . Just my opinion
App is glitchy
by Joshicus on 2020/07/13 21:10
I keep the app up to date but it is full of bug issues. I’ll click on my show and it won’t load. I frequently have to restart the app. Sometimes the show will lose its sound or the speaking becomes slowed down like on “slow mo”-
Update needed
by jhut107 on 2020/07/13 19:23
I do love this app. I watch a ton of movies from it. It needs to be updated because I can not get the app on my iPad! It tells me that my TV provider does not support it which it does. Then it takes me to sign in but I can not pull up my keyboard!
Constant Timing Out That Developers Know About
by ZomBie_RocKer on 2020/07/13 01:16
I love being able to watch my favorite shows from the STARZ app. However, it’s not worth the frustration. It takes me hours to get through single episodes because the app is constantly timing out. Sometimes just minutes into an episode, the show will pause to buffer. Instead of buffering, the whole app just shuts down. When I go to start again, the app doesn’t remember where I am in the episode and I have to skip back and forth trying to find my place. Looking at other reviews, it seems that this has been an issue for YEARS that developers have either been unable to fix or are ignoring.
I get home sick with startz!!! 😍
by mary7410 on 2020/07/13 01:08
The mos hot series and updated movies and anything keep you coming back again and again.. just love ❤️ it!!!
Can’t log in with my TV Provider
by Aglaiaminx on 2020/07/13 01:04
The app has asked me to log in with my TV provide about a dozen times now. I DO SO. And then it kicks me to the “Sign up for a 7-day Free Trial” screen instead of logging me on. The app is useless, and I’m done spending an entire evening just trying to log on. Useless.
Verizon FiOS Customer
by Ciji3 on 2020/07/12 23:49
I have STARZ on my Verizon plan so why do I have to pay to see STARZ on my iPad?
Seriously?!!!
by Lo Deva on 2020/07/12 23:05
I subscribe to this app for a specific reason for a specific show only to be bombarded with the fact that I cannot login and I’m still subscribed like please refund my money as soon as possible like now
App issue
by TreC4 on 2020/07/11 16:31
I’m on the Starz app and trying to creat a account and use the free subscription but it keeps saying it’s forbidden for me and I uninstalled the app and downloaded it again and I tried to create another account to use it just sends me a black screen.
Almost a great app
by MD Miller on 2020/07/11 14:25
I enjoy using the app, especially on Apple TV, but I do have one minor issue with it. I don’t understand why before every program I want to watch I have to skip an ad for another program on Starz. I’m already on the app and I know how to browse and find programs and the extra step of skipping an ad is just annoying. It’s a minor issue, I know, but ads of any kind annoy me which is why I use apps like this in the first place. Please consider removing this pointless waste of time. Starz is the service I use the most anyway so there’s no need to show me ads for other stuff.
👎
by X manx on 2020/07/11 14:13
My only problem with the starz app is with some programs i’m getting a message to upgrade my account in order to watch it when i’m already paying for premium service, i should have access to all of your content but i don’t.
Useless
by Floyd Scenard on 2020/07/11 04:13
Can’t ever log in Tells me my subscription has expired but I purchased a years subscription. No support. Nobody answers or responds to emails.
It’s upsetting I wouldn’t recommend...
by •Soft.Cloudz• on 2020/07/09 10:31
:( first of all I wish we didn’t have to pay... I know nothings free but like I’m a kid I don’t have money nor a job I’m still in school and I can’t tv at my house so I watch it on my phone I was really exited for this app but then I had to pay :/ it was unexpected- I really really wished I didn’t have to pay there is an app that is free but it doesn’t have the movies I want to watch I would love this app even more and share it to my friends family and more if it would be free and we didn’t have to do a subscription if it does however it does get fixed I would give it 5 stars but for now sorry but I thought it was free :(
Glitchy
by christina.elle on 2020/07/09 00:18
This app is terrible. So slow and glitchy-crashing constantly and won’t download anything!
Bad App, Good content
by sophia irias on 2020/07/07 02:56
Though video freezes CONSTANTLY. All my other apps work perfectly, and my wifi is good, so I know that’s not the problem. I don’t want to pay for an app that doesn’t even work, but I’m upset because all the seasons of Outlander are only offered on this service. Please fix this!!
No sound
by shzdEri on 2020/07/06 19:51
After watching a couple of minutes into “Power” the sound completely went out. My speakers and headphones totally work fine. It’s the app itself . Disappointed.
Issue
by Vee.V on 2020/07/06 00:03
The app is constantly reloading, freezing and the picture becomes blurry once and a while. No, I don’t a vision problem. It’s annoying. The shows and movies picks are good. Please fix the issue.
Log in failures.
by mabuserex on 2020/07/05 05:43
Riddled with log in issues. Not sure why why it needs to share my log in info with Adobe.

Ojalá y att algún día pusiera el servicio de internet aqui solo cuento con el servicio de celular 😩
No subtitles
by Shorooon on 2020/07/04 01:29
Overall a good App. My only complaint is that not one show/movie I watched had options for subtitles. For that reason I won’t subscribe.
Cancelled my subscription before time was up
by Jules emy on 2020/07/03 03:45
I wanted to finish the last episode of the series i was watching. I didn’t have much left. They wouldn’t even let me access the site before midnight eastern standard time.
3 month subscription didn’t last 3 months
by sweetcheeks101 on 2020/07/02 04:13
I signed up for a 3 month subscription and was charged after the first month. Sent a note to Apple about it and they refunded me but then turned off my subscription. I still have until the middle of July before it ends and yet no accessibility to the app without paying for another month. Why offer a service when you don’t back it up?
Hate the changes
by Sassytxgirl on 2020/07/01 23:46
Wish you would put back the search functionality by genre. I don’t need all your stupid recommendations and sub groups u have does me no good.
Repeatedly logs out and won’t accept provider or login credentials

The app constantly logs me out, same day within minutes of using the app. I have a Starz subscription through Directv. When attempting to log back in, the app states my provider is not on the list. When I select Directv from the approved list, the app asks to use Adobe.com to sign in. Despite not wanting to give my info to a third party, I do and then receive an external error message. I’ve deleted the app, restarted my iPad, reinstalled the app to no avail. It’s asinine to have to jump through so many hoops and then it still doesn’t work.

Stupid movie list
by Ukwildcatfan1959 on 2020/06/23 01:25
Why list movies as ones STARZ is offering, when they are not available to view, one example, “Fools Rush In.” Crazy!!!
Videos not playing

Disappointed

I have been trying to access my subscription for about 3 weeks now without any success. Can’t even access the application help link in the App Store.
Power

Power is the bomb. The best. Love all episodes
Gripes
by marldon120& on 2020/06/21 00:33
I really like the STARZ app but it doesn’t give you the option to manage the devices on your account from the app or website, you literally have to call in and talk to someone to do so. Very tome consuming and unnecessary.
App on IPad
by hartjan@64 on 2020/06/20 13:36
When I first subscribed to Starz, I was able to watch on my IPad or IPhone as well as my Roku TV. Suddenly the app stopped working on my iPad but I could still get it on my phone. Now I cannot get it on my phone. I use many streaming services and this one is the only one that is no longer compatible. I will be unsubscribing.
I was charged for something I already pay for
by Itzme_ann on 2020/06/19 12:50
I have starz through my tv provider so I am confused as to why I was charged $9.79 for an app that I am already paying for. It clearly says free if you already have starz. Then it renewed even after I unsubscribed.
Can’t watch what you pay for
by Prvtjokr on 2020/06/18 00:20
This app has a significant issue. You can get a message that says you’re only allowed to watch from 4 devices at a time, even when only one is logged in. Please fix.
Frustrating
by Pulpill0 on 2020/06/17 02:08
Every time I try to download a show or movie the app freezes. It is basically useless for me!
Chromecasting
by Sam Blakk on 2020/06/16 03:42
After each episode of a show I have to click the next episode for it to play. The next episode does not play on its own. I am not sure if this is my Chromecast device malfunctioning or a hiccup with the app but it hasn’t always happened. This just started happening within the last 2-3 months.
Doesn’t work!
by customer bakler on 2020/06/15 04:26
This app is useless. I’m very upset. Paying for this app for nothing! Hope someone would send me an email or would let me know who I can reach out to to file a complaint and compensate me for it.

App is whack

Why can’t I stream?!? For $8.99 a month I have to download? Why even have a play button if you can’t stream?
Airplay not Working
by SteveK77 on 2020/06/13 04:10
Airplay plays about a few seconds, then stop forever. What junk is this! I'll cancel the service.
Can’t Login
by HBrocka on 2020/06/12 21:38
The “Login With TV Provider” option breaks the app. I choose login with provider, then I just get a perpetual loading spinner. Close and reopen app, no change. Then actually quitting the app from the app switcher makes it worse - when I reopen the app, it just brings me to the STARZ logo with a perpetual loading spinner, won’t even let me get back to the login screen. Then, when I go into the app store for app support, it just links me to their website with no support to be found. Thanks, guys. Real helpful.
Great app but...
by jillyltch on 2020/06/12 17:24
Would be so much better if the app remembered “last episode watched”
false advertising
by eonzj on 2020/06/11 21:34
i would give it a lesser star rating if possible. caveats should be included. this app does NOT work on my iphone even though i have cell data turned on. i don’t have wifi. i do have unlimited data w att. it is very difficult to cancel. i am at the app store and the instructions regarding canceling are NOT working. calling the phone number listed i was informed would take 20 minutes. after an hour of holding i received another call and the call to starz dropped. i have spent a lot of time trying to use this app then trying to drop it. they have my debit info so maybe i will go to my bank and cancel this card. I learned a big lesson.

Warning do not pay
by noandroidhere on 2020/06/10 22:12
Most of the content you can see here you can see it in netflix or hulu they mostly have antic movies and a couple of new movies just so they can make you pay also it takes a long time to download a movie is like you using 3g when your using wifi high speed internet.
App Review, Not Content (device iPad Pro)
by faith4vincera on 2018/05/16 20:03
First, the app content is good. My issue/frustration is with the functionality of the app itself. My biggest pain point (and it’s a big one for me) is that the app times out quickly and the video closes, especially whenever my iPad screen times out. So, say I hit Pause on a video for more than a minute or two and/or step away from my iPad long enough for the screen to lock, when I return, I have to reopen STARZ, and re-navigate to the video I was watching from the STARZ home screen. This also occurs when I switch between apps. Whenever STARZ is temporarily moved to the background, I have to search all over again. This is the only app I’ve encountered that does this, making it especially noticeable. Also, other apps have the PIP “drawer” functionality where you can slide a video off screen and return to it. This is not the case in STARZ... the video disappears, and again, if it has been a significant amount of time, I have to re-navigate back. It’d be nice to have quicker access to the main menus, and to time out on the active content’s description screen (but keep the video window open if in PIP mode).
Enjoying this app
by Debbie Coffman on 2019/09/03 18:12
I started the STARZ streaming app free trial, after watching the first two seasons of Outlander on Netflix, so I could continue watching the remaining two seasons and it has been well worth it. I could hardly sleep, trying to get them all watched before the seven days. When I discovered outlander was picked up for another two seasons, I wasn’t about to stop STARZ when the free trial was over. It’s a wonderful series, they found the perfect actors for each character, who truly do give their all as well as going above and beyond their talent with such intimacy that truly pulls you in as they bring their characters to life, making you actually get to know and love or love to hate each and every one of them. I’m keeping STARZ, I can watch it anywhere I’m able to get on Wi-Fi. It’s perfect for me, there’s much you can watch weather hits movies or series.
App is terrible ( not a content review)
by ajay1760 on 2019/12/01 02:41
I don’t understand how this late in the game STARZ has such a terrible app. The interface isn’t good but the part that is most frustrating to me is that it’s nearly impossible to fast forward or rewind a show/movie. Dragging the bar at the bottom does not work to rewind/fast-forward, it just freezes the video then you have to hit pause then hit play for it to jump back to where you started from. I’ve had to use the 10-second jump feature to fast forward or rewind large parts of a video. And the best part is, when hitting the 10-second jump repeatedly, instead of rewinding/fast-forwarding 10-seconds, it only goes 6-seconds. I’m not paying for a streaming app where the basic features don’t work. The ability to rewind/fast-forward is something I’ve always taken for granted because no other streaming service has a problem with this, it’s such a basic functionality. I just paid for the first month after a free trial, but this is not worth it and I’ll be cancelling. There’s way too many other options with good content out there to pay for an app that has a lazy, outdated interface and lacks basic functionality.
Possibly the easiest movie app ever made
by spatrickmartin on 2017/11/03 06:36
STARZ app is awesome in so many aspects. It has TONS of great movies and a nice selection of very well done and unique series such as Attila and The White Queen. It's also the easiest to navigate by far of almost every app on my phone I use to view movies on. They have quite the selection for the money and it's something I don't see ever canceling unless things go downhill but I've had this subscription a good couple of years now or near enough. I can't recommend how good it is with something for everyone, including the children. With this price point I often wondered why I ever bothered with some of my other subscriptions but they all seem to have something to offer that's unique but if I could only have my pick of two or three, STARZ would definitely be in my top 3.
Does not allow the use of stars app
by VIPER31415 on 2019/06/30 12:43
The description says that we can use the starz app but after signing up to the starz monthly app and tried to sign into the starz app I get a log in error. I have tried on all my devices iPad Pro, iPhone 7, apple tc 4K, Samsung 4K tv and non apple devices. I am locked to ONLY using the tv app (to watch starz content via the starz Apple TV channel). I contacted starz and they said apple needs to release our credentials to them because as of now starz cannot see a subscription when signed up via the Apple TV channel. I also contacted apple and after an hour of chatting they finally told me that starz monthly subscription is ONLY allowed for use with the tv app via apple devices or smart TVs with the tv app and NOT the starz app. I told the rep that the current description is misleading and should be revised to let us know that we CANNOT use the starz app with this subscription and we CANNOT use the starz monthly app with our current tv provider unless that’s still in the works and will be available soon and is so please let us know in the app description as well.
Terribly glitchy app
by EcGwyn on 2019/02/16 20:35
Love STARZ content but the app is the worst I’ve experienced for any streaming service, paid or not. -Sometimes buffering takes place mid-episode and takes several seconds despite having very high-speed internet. -Sound goes out periodically then resumes later in the episode, sometimes multiple times (sometimes for a second or two a time, sometimes for several minutes). I’ve been using the app for 3 days and it’s happened at least 3 times on different episodes. -Often an episode won’t play when highlighted from the series page, and the entire app freezes up. I have to exit and reopen the app then re-navigate, going to series, show, then selecting the episode from the relevant season and click through that way to “wake it up” instead of just selecting the most recently watched episode as soon as I open the app and resuming where I left off. -Sometimes when resuming an episode, it spins the timer wheel indefinitely no matter what or how many times I try (even restarting Apple TV) until I first select and play a different episode before returning to the one I actually wanted to watch. Again, having to find a way to “wake it up” from a freeze. Can’t believe there are this many issues with a paid premium channel app, it’s barely worth it to watch the content jumping through so many hoops to do so, and it certainly doesn’t encourage me to continue a subscription beyond the trial.
Enjoying the content, but removing ads for episodes (at least beyond the pilot) would be nice
by RBragantini on 2019/06/15 19:48
Update: it seems like what I thought was another episode playing was actually a 30 second ad. It was difficult for me to tell the difference between the ad and a recap, so I thought the episodes were mixed up. Original review: I’ve liked the stability of the app so far, but it seems like some episodes are mixed up. For example, episode 2 of The White Princess, “Hearts and Minds,” is actually missing. When I’ve tried to play the episode in the app, an episode from “The Spanish Princess” plays instead. I’ve tried this across devices, so it seems like a problem with the app itself, and not my access to it. It’s not a huge deal, but it did make me log off Starz and onto another streaming service to watch something else during my downtime.
Black Sails
by WhyIsANickNameNecessary on 2017/10/24 04:11
I subscribed to STARZ to watch Black Sails after catching the first few episodes on Netflix overseas and got hooked. I loved this show. I love pirates and Treasure Island was one of my favorite books as a young boy. I was a bit disappointed this show only has 4 seasons, but it ended well. Definitely not Disney pirates. I plan to keep the app to evaluate for a bit. I have heard good things about some of the other series. I hope I find more shows as binge-worthy. The app itself works very well and I rarely had issues except with occasionally losing my place when moving devices, but this is a minor grievance and it worked well enough most of the time. I will continue to subscribe at least a few more months if I find some other series on here that I like.
App is fine I guess... service sucked though
by 10thDoc.Who on 2020/03/11 06:26
Lately I’ve been having an issue with watching certain movies on the app. The following message that ‘this title is not provided by your provider’ appears. Even though I have a cable subscription to not only STARZ but it’s subsidiary channels (i.e. Encore). While I understand that most people choose to pay for individual services via the app; decidedly if I paid $4.99 a month for the streaming service and such I’d more than likely be allowed access to all the titles I wished to watch. But I have a so called ‘grandfathered package’ with my cable company which allows me access to basically ALL the so called premium channels for a significant discount. My overall point being is that if you’re going provide a service to one customer and not the other over the difference of ‘service provider ‘ or whatever at least have the decency to have an app that wouldn’t bother to show me something I could not watch.
The constant ads are maddening
by nashville jules on 2018/11/22 07:55
They have 2-3 standout series right now, but when you’re binging a show, they have a forced ad for their other content that u can’t fast forward through. They’re the same 3 ads, they’re all for shows and movies that are 10-15 yrs old. Anytime u watch a bts extra feature that’s 4 mins long, you have to watch a forced ad for the first minute. Let ME search your app and find your content instead of shoving it down my throat. Even though I love power and outlander the ads are almost more than I can take. None of my other subscription services inflict these in this way, in this quantity. The 60 second one that’s playing right now has graphic horror movies featured and I dont watch that kind of content bc it scares me. So bc I can’t ff I have to avert my eyes from my own tv for the 30 seconds that it’s playing. When I’m forced to have it on my screen before every episode that plays almost??? It’s too much. If they don’t stop soon, I’ll be cancelling my service.
Terrible App For IPhone
by MonkeyBlue69 on 2020/06/09 02:41
I have been using the STARZ app for iPhone and it CONSTANTLY at least 90% of the time, when I select something to watch, after the previews, there is NO sound for the movie. Just silence. I have to close out, reboot several times before sound starts playing for the movie. Tonight I haven’t been able to get a single movie to play with sound. Previews and their ads, plays no problem can hear everything, the moment the movie plays.... zero sound. What is the point of paying for this monthly if I can’t watch anything I am paying for! 40mins of my night wasted trying to play something on this app. Very disappointed and if not fixed will be canceling. If you watch primarily on iPhone and iPad like I do, be expected for constant aggravation in trying to get anything to play correctly. How they have so many good reviews is beyond me. HBO Max came out and it’s all messed up but at least everything I select to watch plays. Maybe I will just stick with them moving forward.
LEGAL SCAM DONT FALL FOR IT
by huhuhll on 2019/12/03 23:49
I was on my 3rd day of my (7 day day FREE trial) as with any subscription even if you get a free trial you have to CANCEL it before the trial ends so you don’t get charged. THIS APP makes it ALMOST impossible to UNSUBSCRIBE. The Number on the website is an ACTUAL scam that doesn’t work. I’m on IPHONE and the robot/instructions tell you to go to SETTINGS/ITUNES/APPLE ID/ SUB.. ETC the app doesn’t show up there not just for me FOR EVERYONE. you have to go to where ever you Subscribed from ( which for one is DUMB but obviously it’s to make it harder FOR ANYONE TO CANCEL) I figured it out because I’m 18 years old and I have my ways with technology but I’m sure even the younger people would have trouble canceling. AS FOR older people never in ONE HUNDRED YEARS would they find a way to cancel. The APP charges you $8 and then when you finally see it in your bank account you’re able to unsubscribe. A LEGAL SCAM is what this is. YOU SHOULD ALL BE ASHAMED OF THIS COMPANY. ( ALSO don’t get fooled by the TEXT colors when trying to cancel they also use that to fool you.
Outlander on film
by from the Pen of the Archer on 2017/12/03 20:09
Beautifully done! I’m amazed how so many of the original story lines have been twisted around to fit the screen. I am pleased with the selection of the characters in the story. In my imagination I pictured the characters a little different but as the story continues I can’t imagine anyone else having the ability to portray Jamie and Claire as does Catriona and Sam! Very pleased to be watching this series and Bravo to Diana Gabaldon because although I’ve always been entranced by the the stories of the Highlanders, ( from Karen Marie Moning too), I never knew the history of the Scotts and the history that followed the battle of Culloden. The service of indentured soldiers and bondsmen were a mystery to me. I have a greater appreciation of History as the story unfolds. Thank you STARZ!
Great Service, Some Terrible App Functionality
by dramadonthurt on 2020/04/05 03:05
I’ve really been enjoying my STARZ subscription. The content and selection are great. Playback and menus all function well! However, I take issue with a few things: The Autoplay feature: When movies end this NEEDS to be optional. I cannot figure out how to turn this off. I understand auto-playing the next episode of a show immediately after one ends, but a movie? Why would I want some random unrelated content to start on it’s own? Not only do I like to choose what I watch next myself, but sometimes (shocker) I also like to watch the credits. (A lot of people worked hard to get their names up there and I have respect for that.) 15 seconds is not always enough time to get to the remote to cancel the autoplay. Continue Watching feed: This always seems to include movies that I’ve already finished, even if I do manage to watch to the very end of the credits. It also invites me to continue watching the shows and movies that started up of their own accord when I did not cancel the autoplay fast enough. I have no intention of ever watching some of those titles, so their presence in my queue just gums the works and makes it harder to find the content I AM trying to resume. I would love to be able to hide these from the feed.
Log in with TV provider
by Apo11os on 2019/04/26 12:36
At 8:15 this morning I downloaded the Starz App for the umpteenth time hoping the issue with the App not functioning properly would be repaired. I began signing in at 8:15. At 8:22 after going through the various steps I was finally signed in. Seven minutes? Can you imagine if it took 7 minutes to sign into every app? But that’s how it has been on my iPad Pro since October 2018. Once signed in I was able to watch about 50 seconds of programing before the App took me back to the sign in process to start all over again. Since Adobe became involved in this process signing into the App with your TV provider has become impossible. If Starz doesn’t want me to use my TV provider to utilize the App remove the option. This is beyond frustrating. I used to love this App but it is worthless now.
Unimpressed so far
by BeccaRabbit42 on 2020/01/14 21:47
The free trial just ended and I’m hoping maybe now that they’re getting money out of me it will work better. I only downloaded the app because it was either that or spend over $100 to purchase the box set of the show I want to watch. When the app opens it sometimes takes a minute or two to go to the home screen. Half the time it crashes before it even gets to that point. Most of the time that it doesn’t crash it just sits on the home screen, frozen. I’ve let it sit for a few minutes and come back and it still won’t let me navigate to the show I want to watch. It doesn’t seem to make a difference if I’m using WiFi or not. I also have the issue that someone else mentioned; any time you leave the app for more than a few seconds it restarts itself and you have to go through the whole process again. The few times it does let me navigate it’s a pain to get to the show. It would make more sense to have your playlist accessible from the home screen. There is a “continue watching” section on the home screen, but so far every time I’ve tried using it it starts playing an episode I’ve already watched, making it fairly useless. Currently attempting the download to play feature while connected to reliable WiFi. So far seems to be working, although it’s going about as fast as a herd of turtles stampeding through peanut butter.
Low rating is for the platform only, the content is great
by Raesunshine321 on 2020/04/25 01:22
The app has so many issues it makes it too frustrating to watch. It constantly freezes and often won’t save where you are in the movie/show. It automatically starts another movie when the last ends and I am not sure what their formula is for the movie they chose to start but it’s nothing I would want to see. The title of the movie isn’t listed anywhere when you are watching the film so even if a movie starts that you end up liking, there is no way to know what movie it is. This is just the start of the issues with the platform itself and I have used my phone, an ipad and a Firestick... All of this said they have a lot of really good movies and a few excellent shows. But I get so annoyed most of the time that I give up. I suggested it to 2 other people because of the content but they gave up too because good movies don’t really matter if you can’t actually watch them.
Not so easy to cancel
by out8bux on 2018/06/09 13:37
The app worked fine but when it came time to cancel, it became a nightmare. The app didn’t show up in iTunes as a subscription, so couldn’t cancel the way their instructions said to. Tried to login on the website, but on the iPad, the site forces you to open the app. The app says cancel on iTunes or on website. This was a maddening circle until I was finally able to login to the site via a computer. When I clicked the link to cancel, it kept prompting me to keep trying the service and cancel the cancellation, which, I believe, is purposely worded to confuse someone into canceling the cancellation rather than canceling the service. Tried to cancel before the free trial expired but since it wasn’t on my list of subscriptions in iTunes, thought I wouldn’t be billed. Don’t be fooled like I was. If you want to cancel, make sure you find the right link on the website, don’t assume you won’t be billed just cause the app doesn’t appear in iTunes.
Made me happy
by Momma flaten on 2018/02/08 06:52
I was watching Outlander on my iPad. Suddenly I started getting a pop up saying playback error. I’d hit OK and it took me back to the episode selection where I’d hit resume and continue watching. It did it a dozen times in the course of one episode. DISH tech support can’t figure it out. I deleted the app and the iPad itself, then restarted everything. That was the last best idea I was given. I was getting frustrated! Finally got the idea to look for a STARZ app. It’s been smooth sailing ever since I started using the app instead of DISH Anywhere. Your app is easier to navigate and has better picture quality too. If you’ve seen Outlander, you’ll know how happy I was to continue half way thru season 3. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I still get charged with "free" subscription even tho I quit
by Ticked off confused costomer on 2018/11/16 05:43
On a whim I signed up for a free trial to watch only 2 movies and be done with it. Empahsis on FREE TRIAL. The app itself was bad because it never worked properly but again, I needed to watch 2 things on a whim and be done with it. For free. After I was done, ended my free trial, and deleted the apps, I was still charged by STARZ, now monthly. Going on their website on my ipad, iphone, and laptop and following their instructing on how to deleted my suppose free trial, but because it was a free trial NONE of my devices seem to recognise the subscription and I cannot delete anything, file a report on apple, or even get decent help and explanation on why I supposedly now have a monthly paid subscription AND while the "cancel subscription" button is mysteriously gone from all three of my devices on my account. I want help and I don't want to pay for STARZ anymore when it was never meant to be my intention to be a subscribed member.
The very Best adaptation of the series of books
by ExBritinUSA on 2018/05/30 17:22
I've read and reread Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series of books since they were first published in the early 90's. Initially I was curious as to how close the STARZ series would come to them. While the books hold more detail, this series is EXCELLENT! The selection of the cast, the work of the crew, the writing of the scripts and the direction is superior. I also enjoy the discussions at the end if each episode. I continue to reread the books and rewatch the previous seasons before each season and I am never disappointed. I'm not a purist, in that every utterance in the book is captured on screen - that’s impossible. So thank you for such brilliant interpretation and entertainment.
App Never Works Properly
by Desgazon on 2019/10/14 17:05
I have an iPhone and I recently became a subscriber to STARZ and everything seem to be working just fine. When it was time to renew my subscription and I paid it, then I was not able to watch any movies at all. I am not very happy that my money was taken and I cannot even watch anything. I was on the phone for almost 40 minutes trying to speak to a customer service representative and this issue still has not been rectified. “Power”has to be the number one show watched right now and I cannot even watch it, I wonder how much money the actors/producers are losing by people not being able to watch through the app. If this is able to be fixed soon I may renew my subscription for November if not I guess I will not be watching it anymore, because I do not have time to go through this every single time when I can watch another app that will give me the service that I deserve.
App is terrible for steaming (not content review)
by AmandaDee86 on 2020/03/23 01:58
This app is not very functional with streaming and navigating compared to other apps like it. The design of Starz streaming service is far behind other streaming services on the market. Most streaming services will allow the user to pick up where you leave off. If I watch part of a movie and want to come back to finish watching it tomorrow, I have to manually navigate to the movie and find the location I left off. I enjoy a particular series, but I have to remember what season I’m on and manually navigate to the episode. Watching multiple episodes of the same series requires the user to manually select to watch the next, rather than auto-playing like most streaming services, with no option to skip recaps or opening credits. Navigation is hugely inconvenient especially when casting to a Smart TV.
Spartacus-Blood & Sand
by Spartacus, the True Leader on 2018/12/03 07:00
Third time I've watched this show, but still missing a lot of episodes, thru my own fault!!! I absolutely LOVE these types of shows. When Kirk Douglas acted in the role, he did not know our History, very well!!! It was like I lost interest in watching more of bad rotten like sequels!!! Andy was wonderful as Spartacus, and it was so sad to see him and assume that he was in a dangerous fight of his own personal life. I'm sure all the other fans felt and still feel the sorrow of his demise!!! Thank you for reading my feelings in this first Spartacus and assume that he was coming back at the beginning of this great movie!!! I'm not sure of the new Spartacus, and how he will fill wonderful,l Andy's shoes or make that sandals. Well, that's about all I can say on this movie and the new actor that has taken Andy's place. Thank you for your attention on reading this and of Andy taking care of his failing, and keep this program going on. Thanks again, Nick Donvito, a true FAN!!!😎😎😎😇😇😇🚔🚔🚔🚓🚓🚓👮👮👮!!! I hope al the sequels do very well also!!! Good night (or morning) and I'm so glad to see so many other fans!!!
Frustrating
by KingPenn13 on 2020/02/24 22:42
The content is fine, the functionality is not. The app doesn’t work a lot of the time. It freezes up on the main menu as soon as I open it. If I’m downloading something, it locks up. Sometimes, if I pause what I’m watching, or have to close the app to do something else, the show or movie I was watching will reset back to the beginning, and when I try to set it back to where I left off, it will automatically reset to the start. It does this two or three times before finally playing where I move it back to where it is supposed to be. These problems are on my iPhone X. It works fine on my Roku boxes, and one of my Samsung TVs. But another one of my Samsung TVs, it lags pretty bad and won’t even play most of the time. And WiFi signal is not an issue.
Beware. These people are crooks
by S537rhdgk on 2020/02/27 19:44
They received cancellation (through Apple) of my services well within the service month. On the date the services were set to “expire”, they took the next months payment out of my account. Services were cancelled and money for the month was taken as well. After waiting on hold for 55 minutes to speak with a representative yesterday, I was told that I would be given a refund. Today I received an email blaming me and the bank. According to STARZ, you must cancel the service with them and notify the bank not to make the payment. Really STARZ? Does that seem reasonable or logical?! So pay 25-35 dollars for the bank to stop payment on a bonafide cancelled service?! Really?! I don’t even want them on my regular cable plan anymore because of this. I ONLY got the app to finish the season of Power. So you got double for that month. And you greedily take more?! People beware.
Outlander Season Three
by Most Satisfied Sue on 2018/01/30 03:49
I just rewatched the first four episodes of season three. The writers are to be applauded; you had a difficult task capturing all of the most heart-wrenching and important parts of Diana’s outstanding novels. To all of the actors, BRAVO! I sat mesmerized and almost in tears at the end of each episode. You have truly done an amazing job bringing this story to the screen. to all of the crew, directors, and everyone involved in the making of this most excellent production, my utmost gratitude. You have given the Outlander fans quite a treat. and hopefully, new viewers will delight in this story as well. Forge on in the making of upcoming episodes and know that you are all truly appreciated! Sue Schelvan, Huntington Beach, Ca.
Fan of the Outlander Series
by Lisa Renfro on 2017/10/22 06:36
I have read all the Outlander books as they were written. I was so excited when they made the series. I read them when first published, so I got new copies and read them again to catch up on what happens when. The series is very close to the books. I could not wait to see Fergus and Ian grown up. I told my sister and daughter in law what a good series it was and we have been watching together. I can hardly wait for each week to pass to watch it play out. Such a wonderful blend of history, romance, drama and science fiction. I keep wishing there would be a book 9. Thanks for doing such a wonderful job being true to these iconic characters.
App won’t allow me or play movies
by SheSheSoFyne on 2019/08/25 04:33
I’ve always had this app and used it to watch Power last season. Tonight while trying to watch the new season of Power the play icon is there but it will NOT play the show!!!! I’m beyond bummed because I’ve always used my iPad in the past to watch. Somebody PLEASE fix this issue, what’s the purpose of having an app that you can’t watch if the play icon is a bust. Hopefully you can fix this before the season is over. To be clear the play icon doesn’t work for anything. I reinstalled app and everything. PLEASE HELP AND FIX. I’d love to give y’all a higher rating but it doesn’t work. Ugh!
Constantly being logged out...
by Kevin.Watts on 2020/02/11 13:47
The app seems to have updates often but I still consistently run into the logged out issue which is quite annoying. If I minimize (using my ipad) the app or do not use the app for more than an hour I get logged out or run into an error message. Thank goodness I have cellular on my ipad because when logging back in if I am on wifi, Adobe will not recognize the server and will not allow me to log in. Using adobe to log in is weird enough, It is repetitive and extremely annoying. Luckily my iCloud Keychain works after I type in my email address but after I’m done with American Gods i’ll be more than happy to delete this app because of too many issues. I also linked it to my AppleTv account but when it switches over, the same issue occurs...buckets of fun.
App doesn’t open after update
by JosieJo86 on 2019/11/05 16:03
I started my 7 day free trial yesterday. I watched 5 minutes of a movie and shut it off because I had to leave for work. This morning I opened app and it kept saying my internet wasn’t connected. In which it most certainly was connected. I went to App Store it stated that it needed an update. So I updated. Now it won’t even open. Every other app on my device has no problems opening. I even deleted apps I no longer use thinking it was a space issue. No... nothing. So I will like to cancel my subscription. Because I’m pretty sure after my 7 days is up it will miraculously open. If I can’t enjoy it for 7 days then why would I want to invest in a long term subscription? Sorry but I’m out. CANCEL this PLEASE. The App support will not open. So tell me how to get out of this. I hate to take drastic measures and cancel my card information on my App Store.
It’s not the programming, it’s the app functionality...
by SaMo1969 on 2017/10/13 02:47
The content and programs are very good. I pay the subscription with no issues... I am not satisfied with the application functionality. I use the app mostly in my iPad and in my iPhone. First, it is slow in opening the app. It takes a while to open, sometimes giving an error and me having to try again. Second, it does not “remembers” the last time you used it, so you have to look for the correct chapter to continue viewing where you left it. Third, it opens in the incorrect chapter, and in order to be able to browse other chapters I have to go home, search for series, then the series I am looking for, and then all other available chapters. Please do something...
Never works properly!!
by Never works properly!! on 2018/11/14 17:33
This is the worst tv network app I’ve ever had the misfortune of having to download. Lucky for STARZ, they have content I want to watch, otherwise I would never, ever use this terrible app. I’m forced to delete it and re-download it every time I watch something because it never works properly. It asks me time and time again to enter an “optional” email address only to have a message pop up to enter a name. There is no field to enter a name! And if I enter a name into the “optional” email field or just try to move on from that page all together, a message pops up saying I must enter a valid email! Whenever I want to play something, I hit play or download and nothing happens FOR HOURS. I have to keep hitting play all day until finally the show or movie actually plays. The other buttons, such as “share” or “more info” work fine! And then, sometimes, it will start a video only to have a message pop saying the content can’t be played on my device (iPhone X), even though other videos have played all the way through, and the video will no longer play. I’ve tried to look up solutions to this but there seems to be very little info online. (If anyone has any tips to deal with this TERRIBLE app please share!)
Great content, terrible interface
by Prometheus88 on 2020/05/08 21:52
There’s a lot of movies I enjoy here. The frustrating part is finding movies I like, the interface just shows me the exact same content over and over again. Even when I watch more movies the system never changes, same “recommendations”. It also does not know when you’re finished watching a movie it thinks you need to finish. The captions option is not obvious to find. Also, why can I not have the option to skip previews? I am paying for a service that I don’t care to watch previews on. If I wanted commercials I would pay for cable tv. Please work on this app because there is potential, but if I have to struggle to find content I like I will not keep my subscription.
Horrible for travel
by Zapping on 2019/08/29 10:36
Works ok if you are at home on decent WiFi to watch a show. However major issues if you travel and are on public hotspots. I downloaded a bunch of episodes for a work trip. Went to play in my hotel only to be told it couldn’t play because I was on a VPN (I guess they don’t like customer security). Went to airplane mode, downloaded shows still wouldn’t play. Only could get them to play by connecting without VPN. And that was domestic US travel. On another international trip tried the same thing, but once I connected without vpn and it saw I was in Europe it corrupted all of the downloaded files. Support says this is a feature, not a bug. I understand they have legal obligations on where their films can be accessed, but this app puts those well above customer security and usability. Other apps don’t seem to have as big of issues.
A cut above the rest
by carfl on 2019/02/17 07:31
I have both the STARZ and HBO now apps. STARZ allows you to download many movies and shows from series so that when I am on a plane, traveling as passenger in a car or elsewhere, or just having WiFi issues, I can still watch my downloaded movies or series without issue. I’d be so much happier if HBO now offeredthe same. On top of that, STARZ has a good mix of oldies but goodies (from the 80’s and 90’s) as well as new releases. It’s also under $10 per month, where HBO now is $15. STARZ has been great, I never have issues with it in my apple iPad mini v 2 AND 4, and no issues on my iPhones. Highly recommend.
Apple TV App
by I'm THE GingerBradMan on 2020/08/10 18:32
This review is for the Apple TV version of the STARZ app...while content is great, some “features” of the app are very frustrating. When watching a series, I understand the need to ask every few episodes if I am still watching, however, it is unnecessary to show me a commercial for other content each time I click continue. Also, I appreciate the ability to “skip” this commercial, however 9 times out of 10, just as I am pressing the button to “skip”, that button suddenly updates to “add to Playlist”. So, Then I have to go all the way out of whatever series I am watching, go into the playlist, remove whatever it was that I didn’t intend to add, return to the series and try to get to the current episode and continue my viewing. VERY disruptive and unnecessary steps. Please fix this in next update!
The Apple TV app: Very buggy
by Sam Stigler on 2019/03/01 05:23
The Apple TV app is a mixed bag: Most if it works fine, except when it doesn’t. In that past week I’ve run into two bugs: 1. More frequent: App becomes completely unresponsive to user input; only fixed after force-quitting the app — perhaps multiple times. 2. Only happened once thus far: The audio for the show I was watching earlier resumed playing as soon as I reentered (foregrounded) the app, despite the app not actually being on the player screen. When I went back to the player screen and resumed it from the user interface, the audio that had been playing previously kept playing at the same time as (and out-of-sync with) the correct audio for the playhead at which I had resumed the video via the UI. Starz: Please fix your tvOS app!!!
Who made your application?!! A 7-year-old?!
by Billie1979 on 2019/01/27 13:42
Ok I love the content that STARZ offers, if ONLY the app worked good enough to WATCH CONTENT! Every single time I go into the STARZ app on my Apple device I have to log in to my cable provider. EVERY TIME. And NOW it will only play about a minute worth of what I’m watching before it logs me back out AGAIN. I’ve always had similar issues with STARZ and I feel like whoever makes apps that WORK for other networks that’s what STARZ needs to do! They are making money but their application is beyond subpar. I’m disgusted from going through this time after time and I usually don’t bother writing bad reviews but this is how frustrated this makes me. It makes me not want anything to do with STARZ. Get ur crap together!
Good luck trying to Cancel your Subscription
by Sam______A on 2019/10/02 19:16
I downloaded this through the website witch led me to the AppStore and once I got all signed up FOR THE FREE TRIAL, I watched one movie! I wanted to cancel straight after so I wouldn’t get charged but I thought oh wait it’s just a free subscription they’ll send me an email saying I’m close to ending my free trial. Right?! WRONG! No email. No heads up! Nothing! They proceeded to charge me 8 bucks and change which is no big deal but when I wanted to follow the instructions to cancel, it wouldn’t even show up on my subscriptions! But I know I’m subscribed because it charged me 8 bucks just yesterday! So I’m calling them and trying to find a way to cancel but I’m spending an hour on the phone and still no one is answering. Please think twice about purchasing this app and signing up for a free trial. It is NOT WORTH IT!
Impossible to Use
by Nikiola12 on 2019/07/16 22:55
This review is merely for the app, not the service itself. The app is dysfunctional and, frankly, getting on my last nerve. I can see that this is a new 3.13.4 version from 22hrs ago so perhaps that’s why I’ve been having problems. I was watching a show and anytime I exited the app, even if only for a minute, there would be a tiny padlock symbol in the corner of the icon to resume my show. If I tried to play it, I received the following message: FIRST: A QUICK PIECE OF BUSINESS While you now have access to tons of your favorite stuff, this title isn't offered by your provider. We're confident that you will find more of the obsessable series and movies that you crave. This was weird considering that I should be able to watch whatever I want with my provider. I tried turning my phone off and on again, logging out and then back in, etc. until I just logged out, deleted the app, and turned my phone off. When I turned my phone back on and re-downloaded the app, it wouldn’t let me log on. Listen, I have like 3 episodes left of this show I’m watching and I’d really like to just finish it, assuming I’ll ever be able to log back on. After that, I’ll probably never touch this app again.
Money grab
by Britton A on 2018/11/26 07:42
I had starz before and never had an issue. I canceled my subscription when I ran out of things to watch. Now there’s new content I want to watch so I tried to renew through the app. It let me log in and I assumed everything was fine... for three days now I’ve been trying to watch movies and ever time I click play I get a renew subscription alert. So, I click it. It pulls up the disclaimer saying is 8.99 a month, I click renew again. The screen goes back to the movies, I click a movie and play again and go through all of it again. I received an email from apple saying that I’m now being billed again. So I know it should be accessible. I’ve tried closing out the app and reopening, no effect. I’ve updated the app and closed it, no effect. I’ve deleted the app and re installed, no effect. What’s the deal starz?
App quits while watching for a couple of minutes
by cgk245 on 2018/08/03 20:29
Unlike other apps, this app is most annoying. When I start to watch an episode, it quits after a few minutes and I have to reboot the app again. It's so frustrating, I thought it might be the show I was watching, but it did it on others as well. I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times. I downloaded episodes, thinking this was the problem. To no avail, this app needs repair. I have no issues on the NBC or other apps. Fix it, I like some of your shows. It's not my IPad, it's your app!
Twist & turns
by favshow on 2019/01/11 04:38
The Outlander series is a history lesson and love story. The characters face adversity with such strong conviction of over coming the strife of daily life in the 1700’s. Survival of the fittest was never more prevalent and yet they manage to live, and thrive in very precarious times. Disease, wild animals, scoundrels, native Americans are constantly crossing their paths. The family unit is central to these folks. Extended family they bond with makes them stronger. I am so pleasantly surprised and admire the amazing acting skills of this cast! I’m looking forward to the next season. Well done and thank you all for such an amazing season again! Deborah McDonald NY
Outlander
by enily m on 2020/03/06 08:27
I can’t say enough about this series. It’s undoubtedly the best story I’ve ever seen and the books are equally as good. Diana Galbaldon is brilliant and I can’t put the books down.. I’ve probably watched the series ten times at least and see something I’ve missed each time I watch it. The love story is beautiful and Jamie and Claire do a wonderful job of making it so , very, very real. I’m at series number five now and I can’t wait for Sunday to get here I wish it would neyver end. Thanks so much for the outstanding job you’ve all done. It should certainly win all kinds of awards.
I love Starz
by playa_mar_cielo on 2017/10/12 12:59
I purchased the app to watch American Gods, which I love! I've now discovered other original shows by Starz, like the pirate drama Black Sails, that I'm looking forward to getting into. White Queen is next with a little trip down Memory Lane in the form of Good Times and Sanford and Son after that. Did you know they have vintage TV shows on this app? They do. The app itself is easy to use with a beautiful and intuitive user interface. Their equivalent of the hourglass and spinning rainbow disc is a lovely and neat little graphic. Okay, back to Black Sails. Starz, what do you think about adding Chico and the Man?
Cannot access app content
by Tara MT on 2017/10/03 11:31
I cannot seem to log in. I signed up for the free trial, but when I went to log in I got a warning about a token. Since I figured I would want to watch outlander anyways, I went ahead and signed up for 1 month thinking it was an issue with the trial. It still didn’t work. When I tried to say change password, it said that it doesn’t recognize my email address, but I cannot get to the screen to set up a new account. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app, cancelled and reapplied the subscription and basically tried everything I can think of the clear up this glitch. I recently downloaded the new iOS, so I don’t know if that could be the issue... anyways, if this can’t be cleared up I hope I will be refunded as I have not benefited from this service at all.
Buffers too much
by Pisces0828 on 2018/05/15 04:49
My main grip with this app is navigating - when I go to the Resume Menu for instance and I want to watch Outlander Blade may cover a quarter of the Outlander box when I click on Outlander I get Blade also there are no pictures of the show in the boxes so I go to the Series Menu where there are also no pictures but no double boxes. The app buffers a lot. - I always have my phone or iPad at my side to pass the time when I start the app when I go to a movie when I start a movie because anytime you go to another it buffers.I have three other streaming services they do buffer when you first go into it but it’s for two or seconds this app can really stand some improvements - I don’t plan on keeping it for a long period of time
Terrible first experience
by Jaidhe on 2019/03/16 02:17
I just downloaded the STARZ app on my phone so I could activate the app on my Samsung TV. Tried to play an episode on my TV. It took forever to load, then started playing without a picture, The picture showed up for a second before promptly booting me out. I rebooted my TV as instructed on Samsung help, but continued to have the same problem. Tried to download the app on my iPad and when I opened the app it says “stream overload, four devices at one time is the max. please stop playback on an active device and try again.” I only have the app on the TV, my phone, and now the iPad. That is three devices. None of which are playing anything! Very frustrating. I was excited to start watching my series tonight. Thank goodness it’s a free trial. I will not waste my money on this app.

Navigation
by HeatherRaeh on 2020/08/11 14:33
Please add in a skip intro button/option. Also navigating episodes in a tv series is much too difficult and clunky. It should be more streamlined and easier to use

Shady
by helpwasgreat on 2020/08/10 16:07
This app is sneaky. It offers this trial rate but literally each time I enter an email it says “the account expired and needs to be reactivated at full price! I used 4 different emails to test it and it definitely seems like a trick because most people probably just pay the full amount. I’ve never had a subscription so I know it’s bologna. Byeeee starz

Can’t clear watching history?
by bbboy67 on 2020/08/10 05:17
My issue is why there is no way to delete the continue watching feature. A series ends and yet it remains there stuck on the last episode. A nice feature to have, but overlooked apparently unlike other apps.
App refuses to let me log in
by Branzaddy on 2020/08/10 02:11
I can not access my account. Every time I log in it says error: forbidden and will not let me in. What is the point of paying for the app if I can’t get on to watch my shows.
Can’t sign in with TV provider

NOW U CAN’T SEND A REVIEW BECAUSE EVERY NICKNAME IN THE WORLD HAS BEEN TAKEN! REALLY!!!! I will give it 5 STARS AND WATCH IT GO BUT THEY DONT DESERVE ANY.
No playback
by Yemaya@1 on 2020/08/09 17:03
App won’t play any videos even when I changed the settings
Picture quality is washed out and grey!!!
by avnyc11 on 2020/08/08 18:36
Still not fixed even with the latest update!!! I have an OLED screen on my iPhone and on my TV and images with lots of blacks appear washed out and grey instead of black. You can tell because when letter boxing occurs, which happens on a lot of movies, the black of the letter boxing is grey instead of black on my TV (LG OLED C6) and my iPhone (XS Max). With other streaming services such as HBO, Showtime, and Netflix, letterboxing bars are truly black and not grey. This needs to be addressed otherwise I'll cancel my service. I'm not risking ruining my TV and phone screens!
No sound

by Gretnagal on 2020/08/07 14:39
Just signed up for 3 months for 4.99 ea. Shows will play on my devices but everything on my Smart TV is Locked. It says, “To watch this title, upgrade your account. Call 800-675-1111.” However, the call doesn’t even go through. I can’t tell if it’s a fake number or just terrible customer service. And, Upgrade Your Account??? What’s that all about?
Stole my money
by brenda xiomae on 2020/08/07 00:32
This app stole my Money and none of the videos play on my phone !!
How is this app so bad?!
by i leave on star reviews on 2020/08/06 23:33
I’ve spent 30 minutes just trying to get logged in. It won’t even take me to AT&T U-Verses website to login, because it can’t even get pas authorization
Buffering constantly
by Mrrrmmm on 2020/08/04 02:44
The constant buffering and the app shutting down completely is unacceptable in a streaming app. I have Netflix and Amazon Prime, neither of which ever do this. Here’s an idea, fix it.
A lot of bugs
by Missodessa on 2020/08/03 05:46
Update 8/2/20 Auto play the next episode in a series I’m watching, cool...auto play a random show I didn’t ask for NO THANK YOU! There’s not setting that I can find to disable this which means every time I finish the last episode or end of a movie STARZ picks something they think I wanna watch to play 12 seconds after. If i don’t stop it before it plays I now have a random thing in my “continue playing” list...this is such an annoying design flaw. This app has consistently made watching starz a horrible experience. 1. Time out...if you watch and leave your device the app does not keep your place it reloads the app and you have to find the series you were watching again and then click on the episode which is very annoying. 2. When watching a series the next episodes does not automatically play I have to go back to the menu and select it. Also you can’t just click on the episode icon they add and extra step and you have to click the episode then select play at the top. I don’t understand the point of this at all. If these things were fixed I wouldn’t have any complaints but these 2 things making watching on the app very unenjoyable. So I’m just going to list my top issues. 1. App randomly stops playing video & it’s freezes forcing me to close it out and restart 2. Skip button appears on video but does not allow me to click it...seems to be non responsive 95% of the time 3. App randomly crashes This iPad app has been increasingly worse in the last few months. The last two updates have really been BAD. I’m not sure if I will continue my starz subscription since this is the primary place I watch starz on and these issues making watching anything unbearable I can’t get through more than an episode or two without an issue
Keyboard doesn't work... App messes with keyboard...
by CPLANAS1985 on 2020/08/03 05:12
I can't log in to my provider because it won't display my keyboard properly... (iPhone 7 SE, iOS 13.6)
Terrible recommendation algorithm
by cmm472 on 2020/08/02 03:00
The autoplay feature needs improvement or a way to disable it. The content that automatically shows never matches my taste and is never anything I want to watch, ditto for the recommendation algorithm. I thought Starz got new movies every month; I’ve subscribed for almost a year and rarely see new content. I got a great deal on my subscription but it really was a waste because I rarely watch and will not be renewing. One of the bigger companies needs to buy them out and merge the content (Disney?), or maybe Epix and Starz could combine. As it stands, Starz really doesn’t have much to offer.
Good app
by shutequation284 on 2020/08/02 01:15
It is a good but I would add mor anime like avatar last air bender all fast and furious moive but it is a good app plz add avatar last airbender
not voiceover friendly
by Dran666 on 2020/08/01 23:07
i was very disapponted to see that my voiceover was unable to recognise any of the titles. i can go into each one and find it in the info panel but doing so for every single title is not enough frankly. every other streaming app is completely accessable to the blind like myself. hulu, netflix, disney plus, and even apps like crunchy roll and funimation are all accessable. for sars not to be is not within industry standards anymore, they are the only one and it is a simple fix if they are willing. please fix this by labelling your titles with voiceover tags so the screen reader can read it. only then can i give a real review
Decent app
by J Schesny on 2020/08/01 22:12
Needs some improvement such as when you add titles to your playlist it should sync on your profiles on other devices. I have to add to playlist on my iPad, then to it to my Firestick. Also when the devices aren’t synced, it doesn’t keep series updated to what episode your now. Next suggestion have playlist as the first row.
STARZ
by DavidRuffin13 on 2020/08/01 17:14
Can I watch starz live ?
login through TV provide might not show
by wife’s tech support on 2020/08/01 12:25
I had some problem finding the “login through tv provider” at first but now it shows up. Strange...not sure why. But otherwise it’s good
Black Screen
by MiyaWilt on 2020/08/01 08:39
Dying to watch the seasons on Outlander not offered on Netflix so I made an account and downloaded the Starz app. I login just fine but I can’t play any of the outlander episodes. I click on one and I get a black screen. I’ve deleted the app, restarted by phone (newest iPhone), and reinstalled the app but nothing works. Can’t seem to find any real customer support either. No live chats or customer service email available, only a phone number with a number that’s “out of service”.
Can’t Log In
by AilingLlama1107 on 2020/07/31 03:13
Currently have access to STARZ through my Spectrum internet service but the app won’t allow me to log in - the few times I’m able to it crashes mid-episode and requires me to log in again.
MAKE IT ABLE TO DOWNLOAD ON PS4
by kdjfnrifnfnj on 2020/07/30 07:26
Unable to download the app on my ps4 and watch shows and movies on my tv. Only reason I unsubscribed.
Needs more movies
by b.p.29 on 2020/07/29 21:14
The selection of movies could be better
Disappointed
by Funny040500 on 2020/07/25 12:11
Doesn’t work with xfinity so the app is useless to many subscribers. I subscribe and pay for starz and can’t use the app. Very disappointed.
STARZ app buffering
by mf830 on 2020/07/24 21:56
Why is it that I cannot watch an episode in its entirety without freezing and/or buffering? In this day and age it should work seamlessly. I have Netflix, Hulu, Prime and HBOMax and I NEVER have problems. Fix it!!
App doesn’t work with my Spectrum account!
by Krellno on 2020/07/24 21:26
I pay monthly for my Spectrum service. It includes Starz. The Starz app on my devices worked well until it just went blank months ago. Starz won’t accept my passwords etc to get my app working. What’s wrong Starz? I can only give this one star,if they’re where zero stats I would rate it Accordingly! Frustrated and hurt.
Don’t work
by kiss mylips on 2020/07/22 03:55
When I click on a show it’s shows nothing but black it doesn’t show the movie are show your clicking on
Not what I expected...more like a scam!
by Supercrowingparrot on 2020/07/20 22:16
I thought I was going to be able to watch this through Hulu, but no you have to stream from phone or tablet and use up all your battery. Then they overcharged me and didn’t refund until I took it up with my credit card company. SCAM!
STARZ
by Trashelleeeeeeee on 2020/07/20 14:45
The app was working fine at first,but now it’s like you have to keep tapping the screen to keep it on the app freezes the movie won’t play you have to keep going back into the phone to restart the whole movie it’s messing up & not working I’m uninstalling and unsubscribing to it because it’s not working
Not working
by RDTye on 2020/07/20 14:44
Won’t load videos...worked fine the first 2 days and now even if I download the episode, won’t play. Trash app
Worst app
by Krys P on 2020/07/20 08:24
This app has so many issues with Samsung smart TVs. No matter what you do the app will not open. I tried watching a series on my iPhone and the app says the title is t offered by my provider. Makes no sense when I was just watching it yesterday. Save your money do not pay extra for STARZ. It rarely works
It’s not just the app, it’s the website too
by IceCreamBarbie on 2020/07/20 06:18
After reading all the comments about the functionality of the app, it’s not just the app, it’s Starz online presence itself. The website is just as dysfunctional as the app. I used my laptop to sign up for the free trial and the site wouldn’t let me navigate the home page or the browse page and in order to find anything to watch, I had to individually type all letters of the alphabet to find an interesting title. The only page that was visible was the schedule page that showed a list of the scheduled movies and shows to play on the Starz channel. I’m not sure if the reason it’s so dysfunctional is because it’s a free trial, but if it is then the marketing department at Starz needs to hire a new marketing director and adopt a better plan because I’m definitely not paying 8.99 for service that’s a pain in the ass to navigate. Also, I thought I canceled the free trial but apparently that didn’t go through and I was charged anyway and had to open a dispute which is taking 4 days to get my money back because their Tier 2 department is not open on the weekends and for some reason the customer service representatives do not have the authorization to issue refunds, nor do they have the technological capabilities to cancel your subscription from their end, so they ask you a bunch of questions that seem really trivial to the problem you’re having. Starz definitely missed the memo that the content AND the service have to be good.
Shameful...
by Lovingproby on 2020/07/20 03:03
U have “some” good content... But your start up is so SLOW and you force us to go through major trials to stop a Subscription!!! Worst.... You make it so hard to watch the shows. U make it seem like our WiFi / internet is SLOW or the Problem but for whatever reason its your APP!!!!! I’M SO DONE WITH YOU. YOUR CONTENT ISN’T THAT GREAT TO STAY ANYMORE!!! Can’t wait for my script to be up!!!
Starz needs to stop being greedy
by JoeyBones621 on 2020/07/19 21:04
I like that fact that other premium channels I pay for with my cable include their streaming app, like HBO Max, great content im sure but not worth double paying for it. GREEDY
How can an app be so bad?
by _keekdasneak on 2020/07/19 17:24
This app doesn’t work more often than it does. Whenever I try to connect it using the STARZ app on my Samsung smart TV, it takes so long to load the show I’m trying to watch. It’ll go through the normal loading circle but then freeze after a minute or so. I have to wait at least 3-5 minutes for it to unfreeze and play the video, but then the video plays without sound. I need to then turn off my TV completely and restart the process again. The sound will work the second time around but it’s a 10 minute process to play a video on my TV. This happens, without fail, every single time. I don’t even try to cast it from my phone or iPad because the video will just never play doing it that way. I just downloaded the app on my phone and it told me that because I’m not connected to wifi, I can’t stream the video and to change my settings. I have unlimited data, for context. I go to change my settings and turn on data for the app (because for some reason it was by default set to off), go back to the app, and it still tells me to change my settings because mobile data isn’t on for the app........... So i go back to the settings and check, everything’s good, go back to the app, but same message. I then go back to the settings and turn mobile data off, go back to the app and same message but in a different format. I go back to the settings and switch it on, off, then on, go back to the settings and same message as the first time. I close out the app completely, go back in, and same message. I even soft reset my phone and am still getting the same message. I’ve had issues with my TV app for months now so I know it’s just how the app works. My TV is brand new (bought just a few months ago) and plays all other apps perfectly, so I know it’s not my TV. The issue with the phone app just started today which is what really sent me over the edge. I literally only have a STARZ subscription to watch Outlander. If this show wasn’t the only place to stream the newer seasons, I would’ve gotten rid of it a long time ago. But here we are 🙂
The worst app ever
by Nikas876 on 2020/07/19 01:26
I just subscribe all I get preview of the shows want to watch. I don’t get it.

Poor Connection
by Reanna 110907 on 2020/07/15 02:16
For whatever reason, STARZ is the only app on my smart TV that I cannot watch an episode to its entirety... it always freezes and glitches... doesn’t matter if I restart it reboot it or anything it’s soo freaking annoying.. especially in the middle of a good series
Awesome app
by strangerthingsfan00012 on 2020/07/15 00:00
The app is awesome it has all of my favorite movies and shows like I use it everyday the only problem is that it has a problem with volume that’s all
Junk
by fehdjenc on 2020/07/14 04:12
It asks you to make an account and then it goes to a black screen
Am I missing something?
by JayDun79 on 2020/07/14 02:16
Every thing is good. Except the fact that a series has to be started over for every new episode , would rather make sense to have it continuously run ....idk . Just my opinion
App is glitchy
by Joshicus on 2020/07/13 21:10
I keep the app up to date but it is full of bug issues. I’ll click on my show and it won’t load. I frequently have to restart the app. Sometimes the show will lose its sound or the speaking becomes slowed down like on “slow mo”-
Update needed
by jhut107 on 2020/07/13 19:23
I do love this app. I watch a ton of movies from it. It needs to be updated because I can not get the app on my iPad! It tells me that my TV provider does not support it which it does. Then it takes me to sign in but I can not pull up my keyboard!
Constant Timing Out That Developers Know About
by ZomBie_RocKer on 2020/07/13 01:16
I love being able to watch my favorite shows from the STARZ app. However, it’s not worth the frustration. It takes me hours to get through single episodes because the app is constantly timing out. Sometimes just minutes into an episode, the show will pause to buffer. Instead of buffering, the whole app just shuts down. When I go to start again, the app doesn’t remember where I am in the episode and I have to skip back and forth trying to find my place. Looking at other reviews, it seems that this has been an issue for YEARS that developers have either been unable to fix or are ignoring.
I get home sick with startz!!! 😍
by mary7410 on 2020/07/13 01:08
The mos hot series and updated movies and anything keep you coming back again and again.. just love ❤️ it!!!
Can’t log in with my TV Provider
by Aglaiaminx on 2020/07/13 01:04
The app has asked me to log in with my TV provide about a dozen times now. I DO SO. And then it kicks me to the “Sign up for a 7-day Free Trial” screen instead of logging me on. The app is useless, and I’m done spending an entire evening just trying to log on. Useless.
Verizon FiOS Customer
by Ciji3 on 2020/07/12 23:49
I have STARZ on my Verizon plan so why do I have to pay to see STARZ on my iPad?
Seriously?!!!
by Lo Deva on 2020/07/12 23:05
I subscribe to this app for a specific reason for a specific show only to be bombarded with the fact that I cannot login and I’m still subscribed like please refund my money as soon as possible like now
App issue
by TreC4 on 2020/07/11 16:31
I’m on the Starz app and trying to creat a account and use the free subscription but it keeps saying it’s forbidden for me and I uninstalled the app and downloaded it again and I tried to create another account to use it just sends me a black screen.
Almost a great app
by MD Miller on 2020/07/11 14:25
I enjoy using the app, especially on Apple TV, but I do have one minor issue with it. I don’t understand why before every program I want to watch I have to skip an ad for another program on Starz. I’m already on the app and I know how to browse and find programs and the extra step of skipping an ad is just annoying. It’s a minor issue, I know, but ads of any kind annoy me which is why I use apps like this in the first place. Please consider removing this pointless waste of time. Starz is the service I use the most anyway so there’s no need to show me ads for other stuff.
👎
by X manx on 2020/07/11 14:13
My only problem with the starz app is with some programs i’m getting a message to upgrade my account in order to watch it when i’m already paying for premium service, i should have access to all of your content but i don’t.
Useless
by Floyd Scenard on 2020/07/11 04:13
Can’t ever log in Tells me my subscription has expired but I purchased a years subscription. No support. Nobody answers or responds to emails.
It’s upsetting I wouldn’t recommend...
by •Soft.Cloudz• on 2020/07/09 10:31
:( first of all I wish we didn’t have to pay... I know nothings free but like I’m a kid I don’t have money nor a job I’m still in school and I can’t tv at my house so I watch it on my phone I was really exited for this app but then I had to pay :/ it was unexpected- I really really wished I didn’t have to pay there is an app that is free but it doesn’t have the movies I want to watch I would love this app even more and share it to my friends family and more if it would be free and we didn’t have to do a subscription if it does however it does get fixed I would give it 5 stars but for now sorry but I thought it was free :(
Glitchy
by christina.elle on 2020/07/09 00:18
This app is terrible. So slow and glitchy-crashing constantly and won’t download anything!
Bad App, Good content
by sophia irias on 2020/07/07 02:56
Though video freezes CONSTANTLY. All my other apps work perfectly, and my wifi is good, so I know that’s not the problem. I don’t want to pay for an app that doesn’t even work, but I’m upset because all the seasons of Outlander are only offered on this service. Please fix this!!
No sound
by shzdEri on 2020/07/06 19:51
After watching a couple of minutes into “Power” the sound completely went out. My speakers and headphones totally work fine. It’s the app itself . Disappointed.
Issue
by Vee.V on 2020/07/06 00:03
The app is constantly reloading, freezing and the picture becomes blurry once and a while. No, I don’t a vision problem. It’s annoying. The shows and movies picks are good. Please fix the issue.
Log in failures.
by mabuserex on 2020/07/05 05:43
Riddled with log in issues. Not sure why why it needs to share my log in info with Adobe.
si me gusta pero 😩
by Tapatia 19 on 2020/07/04 17:52
No la puedo duplicar en apple tv Lo qué pasa esque no tengo servicio de internet en mi domicilio porque estoy fuera del area y cuando uso mis datos de hotspot se gastan muy rápido. Porque no la ponen como Pluto tv en esa si se duplica la pantalla y no tengo que usar mis datos de hotspot los cuales uso en mi computadora para hacer mis pagos. Ojalá y att algún día pusiera el servicio de internet aqui solo cuento con el servicio de celular 😩
No subtitles
by Shorooon on 2020/07/04 01:29
Overall a good App. My only complaint is that not one show/movie I watched had options for subtitles. For that reason I won’t subscribe.
Cancelled my subscription before time was up
by Jules emy on 2020/07/03 03:45
I wanted to finish the last episode of the series i was watching. I didn’t have much left. They wouldn’t even let me access the site before midnight eastern standard time.
3 month subscription didn’t last 3 months
by sweetcheeks101 on 2020/07/02 04:13
I signed up for a 3 month subscription and was charged after the first month. Sent a note to Apple about it and they refunded me but then turned off my subscription. I still have until the middle of July before it ends and yet no accessibility to the app without paying for another month. Why offer a service when you don’t back it up?
Hate the changes
by Sassytxgirl on 2020/07/01 23:46
Wish you would put back the search functionality by genre. I don’t need all your stupid recommendations and sub groups u have does me no good.
Repeatedly logs out and won’t accept provider or login credentials
by AnnDamntastic on 2020/06/29 22:49
The app constantly logs me out, same day within minutes of using the app. I have a Starz subscription through Directv. When attempting to log back in, the app states my provider is not on the list. When I select Directv from the approved list, the app asks to use Adobe.com to sign in. Despite not wanting to give my info to a third party, I do and then receive an external error message. I’ve deleted the app, restarted my iPad, reinstalled the app to no avail. It’s asinine to have to jump through so many hoops and then it still doesn’t work.
Sluggish
by IamRedKarma on 2020/06/28 14:20
Just wish it was better. It works well on my phone and IPad but my tv it’s like fighting with my ex-wives extremely combative.

Stupid movie list
by Ukwildcatfan1959 on 2020/06/23 01:25
Why list movies as ones STARZ is offering, when they are not available to view, one example, “Fools Rush In.” Crazy!!!
Videos not playing
by spiffy.ke$ on 2020/06/21 04:56
The movies are nit playing currently
Disappointed
by Deadeye5915 on 2020/06/21 02:39
I have been trying to access my subscription for about 3 weeks now without any success. Can’t even access the application help link in the App Store.
Power
by Opal Renee Davis on 2020/06/21 02:27
Power is the bomb. The best. Love all episodes
Gripes
by marldon120& on 2020/06/21 00:33
I really like the STARZ app but it doesn’t give you the option to manage the devices on your account from the app or website, you literally have to call in and talk to someone to do so. Very tome consuming and unnecessary.
App on IPad
by hartjan@64 on 2020/06/20 13:36
When I first subscribed to Starz, I was able to watch on my IPad or IPhone as well as my Roku TV. Suddenly the app stopped working on my iPad but I could still get it on my phone. Now I cannot get it on my phone. I use many streaming services and this one is the only one that is no longer compatible. I will be unsubscribing.
I was charged for something I already pay for
by Itzme_ann on 2020/06/19 12:50
I have starz through my tv provider so I am confused as to why I was charged $9.79 for an app that I am already paying for. It clearly says free if you already have starz. Then it renewed even after I unsubscribed.
Can’t watch what you pay for
by Prvtjokr on 2020/06/18 00:20
This app has a significant issue. You can get a message that says you’re only allowed to watch from 4 devices at a time, even when only one is logged in. Please fix.
Frustrating
by Pulpill0 on 2020/06/17 02:08
Every time I try to download a show or movie the app freezes. It is basically useless for me!
Chromecasting
by Sam Blakk on 2020/06/16 03:42
After each episode of a show I have to click the next episode for it to play. The next episode does not play on its own. I am not sure if this is my Chromecast device malfunctioning or a hiccup with the app but it hasn’t always happened. This just started happening within the last 2-3 months.
Doesn’t work!
by customer bakler on 2020/06/15 04:26
This app is useless. I’m very upset. Paying for this app for nothing! Hope someone would send me an email or would let me know who I can reach out to to file a complaint and compensate me for it.
Will not open app
by customer111777 on 2020/06/14 19:55
This app stopped working and will not open
App is whack
by eyerollwastaken on 2020/06/14 02:36
Why can’t I stream?!? For $8.99 a month I have to download? Why even have a play button if you can’t stream?
Airplay not Working
by SteveK77 on 2020/06/13 04:10
Airplay plays about a few seconds, then stop forever. What junk is this! I'll cancel the service.
Can’t Login
by HBrocka on 2020/06/12 21:38
The “Login With TV Provider” option breaks the app. I choose login with provider, then I just get a perpetual loading spinner. Close and reopen app, no change. Then actually quitting the app from the app switcher makes it worse - when I reopen the app, it just brings me to the STARZ logo with a perpetual loading spinner, won’t even let me get back to the login screen. Then, when I go into the app store for app support, it just links me to their website with no support to be found. Thanks, guys. Real helpful.
Great app but...
by jillyltch on 2020/06/12 17:24
Would be so much better if the app remembered “last episode watched”
false advertising
by eonzj on 2020/06/11 21:34
i would give it a lesser star rating if possible. caveats should be included. this app does NOT work on my iphone even though i have cell data turned on. i don’t have wifi. i do have unlimited data w att. it is very difficult to cancel. i am at the app store and the instructions regarding canceling are NOT working. calling the phone number listed i was informed would take 20 minutes. after an hour of holding i received another call and the call to starz dropped. i have spent a lot of time trying to use this app then trying to drop it. they have my debit info so maybe i will go to my bank and cancel this card. I learned a big lesson.
SCAM
by puma👑👑 on 2020/06/11 02:25

by noandroidhere on 2020/06/10 22:12
Most of the content you can see here you can see it in netflix or hulu they mostly have antic movies and a couple of new movies just so they can make you pay also it takes a long time to download a movie is like you using 3g when your using wifi high speed internet.

by faith4vincera on 2018/05/16 20:03
First, the app content is good. My issue/frustration is with the functionality of the app itself. My biggest pain point (and it’s a big one for me) is that the app times out quickly and the video closes, especially whenever my iPad screen times out. So, say I hit Pause on a video for more than a minute or two and/or step away from my iPad long enough for the screen to lock, when I return, I have to reopen STARZ, and re-navigate to the video I was watching from the STARZ home screen. This also occurs when I switch between apps. Whenever STARZ is temporarily moved to the background, I have to search all over again. This is the only app I’ve encountered that does this, making it especially noticeable. Also, other apps have the PIP “drawer” functionality where you can slide a video off screen and return to it. This is not the case in STARZ... the video disappears, and again, if it has been a significant amount of time, I have to re-navigate back. It’d be nice to have quicker access to the main menus, and to time out on the active content’s description screen (but keep the video window open if in PIP mode).
Enjoying this app
by Debbie Coffman on 2019/09/03 18:12
I started the STARZ streaming app free trial, after watching the first two seasons of Outlander on Netflix, so I could continue watching the remaining two seasons and it has been well worth it. I could hardly sleep, trying to get them all watched before the seven days. When I discovered outlander was picked up for another two seasons, I wasn’t about to stop STARZ when the free trial was over. It’s a wonderful series, they found the perfect actors for each character, who truly do give their all as well as going above and beyond their talent with such intimacy that truly pulls you in as they bring their characters to life, making you actually get to know and love or love to hate each and every one of them. I’m keeping STARZ, I can watch it anywhere I’m able to get on Wi-Fi. It’s perfect for me, there’s much you can watch weather hits movies or series.
App is terrible ( not a content review)
by ajay1760 on 2019/12/01 02:41
I don’t understand how this late in the game STARZ has such a terrible app. The interface isn’t good but the part that is most frustrating to me is that it’s nearly impossible to fast forward or rewind a show/movie. Dragging the bar at the bottom does not work to rewind/fast-forward, it just freezes the video then you have to hit pause then hit play for it to jump back to where you started from. I’ve had to use the 10-second jump feature to fast forward or rewind large parts of a video. And the best part is, when hitting the 10-second jump repeatedly, instead of rewinding/fast-forwarding 10-seconds, it only goes 6-seconds. I’m not paying for a streaming app where the basic features don’t work. The ability to rewind/fast-forward is something I’ve always taken for granted because no other streaming service has a problem with this, it’s such a basic functionality. I just paid for the first month after a free trial, but this is not worth it and I’ll be cancelling. There’s way too many other options with good content out there to pay for an app that has a lazy, outdated interface and lacks basic functionality.
Possibly the easiest movie app ever made
by spatrickmartin on 2017/11/03 06:36
STARZ app is awesome in so many aspects. It has TONS of great movies and a nice selection of very well done and unique series such as Attila and The White Queen. It's also the easiest to navigate by far of almost every app on my phone I use to view movies on. They have quite the selection for the money and it's something I don't see ever canceling unless things go downhill but I've had this subscription a good couple of years now or near enough. I can't recommend how good it is with something for everyone, including the children. With this price point I often wondered why I ever bothered with some of my other subscriptions but they all seem to have something to offer that's unique but if I could only have my pick of two or three, STARZ would definitely be in my top 3.
Does not allow the use of stars app
by VIPER31415 on 2019/06/30 12:43
The description says that we can use the starz app but after signing up to the starz monthly app and tried to sign into the starz app I get a log in error. I have tried on all my devices iPad Pro, iPhone 7, apple tc 4K, Samsung 4K tv and non apple devices. I am locked to ONLY using the tv app (to watch starz content via the starz Apple TV channel). I contacted starz and they said apple needs to release our credentials to them because as of now starz cannot see a subscription when signed up via the Apple TV channel. I also contacted apple and after an hour of chatting they finally told me that starz monthly subscription is ONLY allowed for use with the tv app via apple devices or smart TVs with the tv app and NOT the starz app. I told the rep that the current description is misleading and should be revised to let us know that we CANNOT use the starz app with this subscription and we CANNOT use the starz monthly app with our current tv provider unless that’s still in the works and will be available soon and is so please let us know in the app description as well.
Terribly glitchy app
by EcGwyn on 2019/02/16 20:35
Love STARZ content but the app is the worst I’ve experienced for any streaming service, paid or not. -Sometimes buffering takes place mid-episode and takes several seconds despite having very high-speed internet. -Sound goes out periodically then resumes later in the episode, sometimes multiple times (sometimes for a second or two a time, sometimes for several minutes). I’ve been using the app for 3 days and it’s happened at least 3 times on different episodes. -Often an episode won’t play when highlighted from the series page, and the entire app freezes up. I have to exit and reopen the app then re-navigate, going to series, show, then selecting the episode from the relevant season and click through that way to “wake it up” instead of just selecting the most recently watched episode as soon as I open the app and resuming where I left off. -Sometimes when resuming an episode, it spins the timer wheel indefinitely no matter what or how many times I try (even restarting Apple TV) until I first select and play a different episode before returning to the one I actually wanted to watch. Again, having to find a way to “wake it up” from a freeze. Can’t believe there are this many issues with a paid premium channel app, it’s barely worth it to watch the content jumping through so many hoops to do so, and it certainly doesn’t encourage me to continue a subscription beyond the trial.
Enjoying the content, but removing ads for episodes (at least beyond the pilot) would be nice
by RBragantini on 2019/06/15 19:48
Update: it seems like what I thought was another episode playing was actually a 30 second ad. It was difficult for me to tell the difference between the ad and a recap, so I thought the episodes were mixed up. Original review: I’ve liked the stability of the app so far, but it seems like some episodes are mixed up. For example, episode 2 of The White Princess, “Hearts and Minds,” is actually missing. When I’ve tried to play the episode in the app, an episode from “The Spanish Princess” plays instead. I’ve tried this across devices, so it seems like a problem with the app itself, and not my access to it. It’s not a huge deal, but it did make me log off Starz and onto another streaming service to watch something else during my downtime.
Black Sails
by WhyIsANickNameNecessary on 2017/10/24 04:11
I subscribed to STARZ to watch Black Sails after catching the first few episodes on Netflix overseas and got hooked. I loved this show. I love pirates and Treasure Island was one of my favorite books as a young boy. I was a bit disappointed this show only has 4 seasons, but it ended well. Definitely not Disney pirates. I plan to keep the app to evaluate for a bit. I have heard good things about some of the other series. I hope I find more shows as binge-worthy. The app itself works very well and I rarely had issues except with occasionally losing my place when moving devices, but this is a minor grievance and it worked well enough most of the time. I will continue to subscribe at least a few more months if I find some other series on here that I like.
App is fine I guess... service sucked though
by 10thDoc.Who on 2020/03/11 06:26
Lately I’ve been having an issue with watching certain movies on the app. The following message that ‘this title is not provided by your provider’ appears. Even though I have a cable subscription to not only STARZ but it’s subsidiary channels (i.e. Encore). While I understand that most people choose to pay for individual services via the app; decidedly if I paid $4.99 a month for the streaming service and such I’d more than likely be allowed access to all the titles I wished to watch. But I have a so called ‘grandfathered package’ with my cable company which allows me access to basically ALL the so called premium channels for a significant discount. My overall point being is that if you’re going provide a service to one customer and not the other over the difference of ‘service provider ‘ or whatever at least have the decency to have an app that wouldn’t bother to show me something I could not watch.
The constant ads are maddening
by nashville jules on 2018/11/22 07:55
They have 2-3 standout series right now, but when you’re binging a show, they have a forced ad for their other content that u can’t fast forward through. They’re the same 3 ads, they’re all for shows and movies that are 10-15 yrs old. Anytime u watch a bts extra feature that’s 4 mins long, you have to watch a forced ad for the first minute. Let ME search your app and find your content instead of shoving it down my throat. Even though I love power and outlander the ads are almost more than I can take. None of my other subscription services inflict these in this way, in this quantity. The 60 second one that’s playing right now has graphic horror movies featured and I dont watch that kind of content bc it scares me. So bc I can’t ff I have to avert my eyes from my own tv for the 30 seconds that it’s playing. When I’m forced to have it on my screen before every episode that plays almost??? It’s too much. If they don’t stop soon, I’ll be cancelling my service.
Terrible App For IPhone
by MonkeyBlue69 on 2020/06/09 02:41
I have been using the STARZ app for iPhone and it CONSTANTLY at least 90% of the time, when I select something to watch, after the previews, there is NO sound for the movie. Just silence. I have to close out, reboot several times before sound starts playing for the movie. Tonight I haven’t been able to get a single movie to play with sound. Previews and their ads, plays no problem can hear everything, the moment the movie plays.... zero sound. What is the point of paying for this monthly if I can’t watch anything I am paying for! 40mins of my night wasted trying to play something on this app. Very disappointed and if not fixed will be canceling. If you watch primarily on iPhone and iPad like I do, be expected for constant aggravation in trying to get anything to play correctly. How they have so many good reviews is beyond me. HBO Max came out and it’s all messed up but at least everything I select to watch plays. Maybe I will just stick with them moving forward.
LEGAL SCAM DONT FALL FOR IT
by huhuhll on 2019/12/03 23:49
I was on my 3rd day of my (7 day day FREE trial) as with any subscription even if you get a free trial you have to CANCEL it before the trial ends so you don’t get charged. THIS APP makes it ALMOST impossible to UNSUBSCRIBE. The Number on the website is an ACTUAL scam that doesn’t work. I’m on IPHONE and the robot/instructions tell you to go to SETTINGS/ITUNES/APPLE ID/ SUB.. ETC the app doesn’t show up there not just for me FOR EVERYONE. you have to go to where ever you Subscribed from ( which for one is DUMB but obviously it’s to make it harder FOR ANYONE TO CANCEL) I figured it out because I’m 18 years old and I have my ways with technology but I’m sure even the younger people would have trouble canceling. AS FOR older people never in ONE HUNDRED YEARS would they find a way to cancel. The APP charges you $8 and then when you finally see it in your bank account you’re able to unsubscribe. A LEGAL SCAM is what this is. YOU SHOULD ALL BE ASHAMED OF THIS COMPANY. ( ALSO don’t get fooled by the TEXT colors when trying to cancel they also use that to fool you.
Outlander on film
by from the Pen of the Archer on 2017/12/03 20:09
Beautifully done! I’m amazed how so many of the original story lines have been twisted around to fit the screen. I am pleased with the selection of the characters in the story. In my imagination I pictured the characters a little different but as the story continues I can’t imagine anyone else having the ability to portray Jamie and Claire as does Catriona and Sam! Very pleased to be watching this series and Bravo to Diana Gabaldon because although I’ve always been entranced by the the stories of the Highlanders, ( from Karen Marie Moning too), I never knew the history of the Scotts and the history that followed the battle of Culloden. The service of indentured soldiers and bondsmen were a mystery to me. I have a greater appreciation of History as the story unfolds. Thank you STARZ!
Great Service, Some Terrible App Functionality
by dramadonthurt on 2020/04/05 03:05
I’ve really been enjoying my STARZ subscription. The content and selection are great. Playback and menus all function well! However, I take issue with a few things: The Autoplay feature: When movies end this NEEDS to be optional. I cannot figure out how to turn this off. I understand auto-playing the next episode of a show immediately after one ends, but a movie? Why would I want some random unrelated content to start on it’s own? Not only do I like to choose what I watch next myself, but sometimes (shocker) I also like to watch the credits. (A lot of people worked hard to get their names up there and I have respect for that.) 15 seconds is not always enough time to get to the remote to cancel the autoplay. Continue Watching feed: This always seems to include movies that I’ve already finished, even if I do manage to watch to the very end of the credits. It also invites me to continue watching the shows and movies that started up of their own accord when I did not cancel the autoplay fast enough. I have no intention of ever watching some of those titles, so their presence in my queue just gums the works and makes it harder to find the content I AM trying to resume. I would love to be able to hide these from the feed.
Log in with TV provider
by Apo11os on 2019/04/26 12:36
At 8:15 this morning I downloaded the Starz App for the umpteenth time hoping the issue with the App not functioning properly would be repaired. I began signing in at 8:15. At 8:22 after going through the various steps I was finally signed in. Seven minutes? Can you imagine if it took 7 minutes to sign into every app? But that’s how it has been on my iPad Pro since October 2018. Once signed in I was able to watch about 50 seconds of programing before the App took me back to the sign in process to start all over again. Since Adobe became involved in this process signing into the App with your TV provider has become impossible. If Starz doesn’t want me to use my TV provider to utilize the App remove the option. This is beyond frustrating. I used to love this App but it is worthless now.
Unimpressed so far
by BeccaRabbit42 on 2020/01/14 21:47
The free trial just ended and I’m hoping maybe now that they’re getting money out of me it will work better. I only downloaded the app because it was either that or spend over $100 to purchase the box set of the show I want to watch. When the app opens it sometimes takes a minute or two to go to the home screen. Half the time it crashes before it even gets to that point. Most of the time that it doesn’t crash it just sits on the home screen, frozen. I’ve let it sit for a few minutes and come back and it still won’t let me navigate to the show I want to watch. It doesn’t seem to make a difference if I’m using WiFi or not. I also have the issue that someone else mentioned; any time you leave the app for more than a few seconds it restarts itself and you have to go through the whole process again. The few times it does let me navigate it’s a pain to get to the show. It would make more sense to have your playlist accessible from the home screen. There is a “continue watching” section on the home screen, but so far every time I’ve tried using it it starts playing an episode I’ve already watched, making it fairly useless. Currently attempting the download to play feature while connected to reliable WiFi. So far seems to be working, although it’s going about as fast as a herd of turtles stampeding through peanut butter.
Low rating is for the platform only, the content is great
by Raesunshine321 on 2020/04/25 01:22
The app has so many issues it makes it too frustrating to watch. It constantly freezes and often won’t save where you are in the movie/show. It automatically starts another movie when the last ends and I am not sure what their formula is for the movie they chose to start but it’s nothing I would want to see. The title of the movie isn’t listed anywhere when you are watching the film so even if a movie starts that you end up liking, there is no way to know what movie it is. This is just the start of the issues with the platform itself and I have used my phone, an ipad and a Firestick... All of this said they have a lot of really good movies and a few excellent shows. But I get so annoyed most of the time that I give up. I suggested it to 2 other people because of the content but they gave up too because good movies don’t really matter if you can’t actually watch them.
Not so easy to cancel
by out8bux on 2018/06/09 13:37
The app worked fine but when it came time to cancel, it became a nightmare. The app didn’t show up in iTunes as a subscription, so couldn’t cancel the way their instructions said to. Tried to login on the website, but on the iPad, the site forces you to open the app. The app says cancel on iTunes or on website. This was a maddening circle until I was finally able to login to the site via a computer. When I clicked the link to cancel, it kept prompting me to keep trying the service and cancel the cancellation, which, I believe, is purposely worded to confuse someone into canceling the cancellation rather than canceling the service. Tried to cancel before the free trial expired but since it wasn’t on my list of subscriptions in iTunes, thought I wouldn’t be billed. Don’t be fooled like I was. If you want to cancel, make sure you find the right link on the website, don’t assume you won’t be billed just cause the app doesn’t appear in iTunes.
Made me happy
by Momma flaten on 2018/02/08 06:52
I was watching Outlander on my iPad. Suddenly I started getting a pop up saying playback error. I’d hit OK and it took me back to the episode selection where I’d hit resume and continue watching. It did it a dozen times in the course of one episode. DISH tech support can’t figure it out. I deleted the app and the iPad itself, then restarted everything. That was the last best idea I was given. I was getting frustrated! Finally got the idea to look for a STARZ app. It’s been smooth sailing ever since I started using the app instead of DISH Anywhere. Your app is easier to navigate and has better picture quality too. If you’ve seen Outlander, you’ll know how happy I was to continue half way thru season 3. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I still get charged with "free" subscription even tho I quit
by Ticked off confused costomer on 2018/11/16 05:43
On a whim I signed up for a free trial to watch only 2 movies and be done with it. Empahsis on FREE TRIAL. The app itself was bad because it never worked properly but again, I needed to watch 2 things on a whim and be done with it. For free. After I was done, ended my free trial, and deleted the apps, I was still charged by STARZ, now monthly. Going on their website on my ipad, iphone, and laptop and following their instructing on how to deleted my suppose free trial, but because it was a free trial NONE of my devices seem to recognise the subscription and I cannot delete anything, file a report on apple, or even get decent help and explanation on why I supposedly now have a monthly paid subscription AND while the "cancel subscription" button is mysteriously gone from all three of my devices on my account. I want help and I don't want to pay for STARZ anymore when it was never meant to be my intention to be a subscribed member.
The very Best adaptation of the series of books
by ExBritinUSA on 2018/05/30 17:22
I've read and reread Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series of books since they were first published in the early 90's. Initially I was curious as to how close the STARZ series would come to them. While the books hold more detail, this series is EXCELLENT! The selection of the cast, the work of the crew, the writing of the scripts and the direction is superior. I also enjoy the discussions at the end if each episode. I continue to reread the books and rewatch the previous seasons before each season and I am never disappointed. I'm not a purist, in that every utterance in the book is captured on screen - that’s impossible. So thank you for such brilliant interpretation and entertainment.
App Never Works Properly
by Desgazon on 2019/10/14 17:05
I have an iPhone and I recently became a subscriber to STARZ and everything seem to be working just fine. When it was time to renew my subscription and I paid it, then I was not able to watch any movies at all. I am not very happy that my money was taken and I cannot even watch anything. I was on the phone for almost 40 minutes trying to speak to a customer service representative and this issue still has not been rectified. “Power”has to be the number one show watched right now and I cannot even watch it, I wonder how much money the actors/producers are losing by people not being able to watch through the app. If this is able to be fixed soon I may renew my subscription for November if not I guess I will not be watching it anymore, because I do not have time to go through this every single time when I can watch another app that will give me the service that I deserve.
App is terrible for steaming (not content review)
by AmandaDee86 on 2020/03/23 01:58
This app is not very functional with streaming and navigating compared to other apps like it. The design of Starz streaming service is far behind other streaming services on the market. Most streaming services will allow the user to pick up where you leave off. If I watch part of a movie and want to come back to finish watching it tomorrow, I have to manually navigate to the movie and find the location I left off. I enjoy a particular series, but I have to remember what season I’m on and manually navigate to the episode. Watching multiple episodes of the same series requires the user to manually select to watch the next, rather than auto-playing like most streaming services, with no option to skip recaps or opening credits. Navigation is hugely inconvenient especially when casting to a Smart TV.
Spartacus-Blood & Sand
by Spartacus, the True Leader on 2018/12/03 07:00
Third time I've watched this show, but still missing a lot of episodes, thru my own fault!!! I absolutely LOVE these types of shows. When Kirk Douglas acted in the role, he did not know our History, very well!!! It was like I lost interest in watching more of bad rotten like sequels!!! Andy was wonderful as Spartacus, and it was so sad to see him and assume that he was in a dangerous fight of his own personal life. I'm sure all the other fans felt and still feel the sorrow of his demise!!! Thank you for reading my feelings in this first Spartacus and assume that he was coming back at the beginning of this great movie!!! I'm not sure of the new Spartacus, and how he will fill wonderful,l Andy's shoes or make that sandals. Well, that's about all I can say on this movie and the new actor that has taken Andy's place. Thank you for your attention on reading this and of Andy taking care of his failing, and keep this program going on. Thanks again, Nick Donvito, a true FAN!!!😎😎😎😇😇😇🚔🚔🚔🚓🚓🚓👮👮👮!!! I hope al the sequels do very well also!!! Good night (or morning) and I'm so glad to see so many other fans!!!
Frustrating
by KingPenn13 on 2020/02/24 22:42
The content is fine, the functionality is not. The app doesn’t work a lot of the time. It freezes up on the main menu as soon as I open it. If I’m downloading something, it locks up. Sometimes, if I pause what I’m watching, or have to close the app to do something else, the show or movie I was watching will reset back to the beginning, and when I try to set it back to where I left off, it will automatically reset to the start. It does this two or three times before finally playing where I move it back to where it is supposed to be. These problems are on my iPhone X. It works fine on my Roku boxes, and one of my Samsung TVs. But another one of my Samsung TVs, it lags pretty bad and won’t even play most of the time. And WiFi signal is not an issue.
Beware. These people are crooks
by S537rhdgk on 2020/02/27 19:44
They received cancellation (through Apple) of my services well within the service month. On the date the services were set to “expire”, they took the next months payment out of my account. Services were cancelled and money for the month was taken as well. After waiting on hold for 55 minutes to speak with a representative yesterday, I was told that I would be given a refund. Today I received an email blaming me and the bank. According to STARZ, you must cancel the service with them and notify the bank not to make the payment. Really STARZ? Does that seem reasonable or logical?! So pay 25-35 dollars for the bank to stop payment on a bonafide cancelled service?! Really?! I don’t even want them on my regular cable plan anymore because of this. I ONLY got the app to finish the season of Power. So you got double for that month. And you greedily take more?! People beware.
Outlander Season Three
by Most Satisfied Sue on 2018/01/30 03:49
I just rewatched the first four episodes of season three. The writers are to be applauded; you had a difficult task capturing all of the most heart-wrenching and important parts of Diana’s outstanding novels. To all of the actors, BRAVO! I sat mesmerized and almost in tears at the end of each episode. You have truly done an amazing job bringing this story to the screen. to all of the crew, directors, and everyone involved in the making of this most excellent production, my utmost gratitude. You have given the Outlander fans quite a treat. and hopefully, new viewers will delight in this story as well. Forge on in the making of upcoming episodes and know that you are all truly appreciated! Sue Schelvan, Huntington Beach, Ca.
Fan of the Outlander Series
by Lisa Renfro on 2017/10/22 06:36
I have read all the Outlander books as they were written. I was so excited when they made the series. I read them when first published, so I got new copies and read them again to catch up on what happens when. The series is very close to the books. I could not wait to see Fergus and Ian grown up. I told my sister and daughter in law what a good series it was and we have been watching together. I can hardly wait for each week to pass to watch it play out. Such a wonderful blend of history, romance, drama and science fiction. I keep wishing there would be a book 9. Thanks for doing such a wonderful job being true to these iconic characters.
App won’t allow me or play movies
by SheSheSoFyne on 2019/08/25 04:33
I’ve always had this app and used it to watch Power last season. Tonight while trying to watch the new season of Power the play icon is there but it will NOT play the show!!!! I’m beyond bummed because I’ve always used my iPad in the past to watch. Somebody PLEASE fix this issue, what’s the purpose of having an app that you can’t watch if the play icon is a bust. Hopefully you can fix this before the season is over. To be clear the play icon doesn’t work for anything. I reinstalled app and everything. PLEASE HELP AND FIX. I’d love to give y’all a higher rating but it doesn’t work. Ugh!
Constantly being logged out...
by Kevin.Watts on 2020/02/11 13:47
The app seems to have updates often but I still consistently run into the logged out issue which is quite annoying. If I minimize (using my ipad) the app or do not use the app for more than an hour I get logged out or run into an error message. Thank goodness I have cellular on my ipad because when logging back in if I am on wifi, Adobe will not recognize the server and will not allow me to log in. Using adobe to log in is weird enough, It is repetitive and extremely annoying. Luckily my iCloud Keychain works after I type in my email address but after I’m done with American Gods i’ll be more than happy to delete this app because of too many issues. I also linked it to my AppleTv account but when it switches over, the same issue occurs...buckets of fun.
App doesn’t open after update
by JosieJo86 on 2019/11/05 16:03
I started my 7 day free trial yesterday. I watched 5 minutes of a movie and shut it off because I had to leave for work. This morning I opened app and it kept saying my internet wasn’t connected. In which it most certainly was connected. I went to App Store it stated that it needed an update. So I updated. Now it won’t even open. Every other app on my device has no problems opening. I even deleted apps I no longer use thinking it was a space issue. No... nothing. So I will like to cancel my subscription. Because I’m pretty sure after my 7 days is up it will miraculously open. If I can’t enjoy it for 7 days then why would I want to invest in a long term subscription? Sorry but I’m out. CANCEL this PLEASE. The App support will not open. So tell me how to get out of this. I hate to take drastic measures and cancel my card information on my App Store.
It’s not the programming, it’s the app functionality...
by SaMo1969 on 2017/10/13 02:47
The content and programs are very good. I pay the subscription with no issues... I am not satisfied with the application functionality. I use the app mostly in my iPad and in my iPhone. First, it is slow in opening the app. It takes a while to open, sometimes giving an error and me having to try again. Second, it does not “remembers” the last time you used it, so you have to look for the correct chapter to continue viewing where you left it. Third, it opens in the incorrect chapter, and in order to be able to browse other chapters I have to go home, search for series, then the series I am looking for, and then all other available chapters. Please do something...
Never works properly!!
by Never works properly!! on 2018/11/14 17:33
This is the worst tv network app I’ve ever had the misfortune of having to download. Lucky for STARZ, they have content I want to watch, otherwise I would never, ever use this terrible app. I’m forced to delete it and re-download it every time I watch something because it never works properly. It asks me time and time again to enter an “optional” email address only to have a message pop up to enter a name. There is no field to enter a name! And if I enter a name into the “optional” email field or just try to move on from that page all together, a message pops up saying I must enter a valid email! Whenever I want to play something, I hit play or download and nothing happens FOR HOURS. I have to keep hitting play all day until finally the show or movie actually plays. The other buttons, such as “share” or “more info” work fine! And then, sometimes, it will start a video only to have a message pop saying the content can’t be played on my device (iPhone X), even though other videos have played all the way through, and the video will no longer play. I’ve tried to look up solutions to this but there seems to be very little info online. (If anyone has any tips to deal with this TERRIBLE app please share!)
Great content, terrible interface
by Prometheus88 on 2020/05/08 21:52
There’s a lot of movies I enjoy here. The frustrating part is finding movies I like, the interface just shows me the exact same content over and over again. Even when I watch more movies the system never changes, same “recommendations”. It also does not know when you’re finished watching a movie it thinks you need to finish. The captions option is not obvious to find. Also, why can I not have the option to skip previews? I am paying for a service that I don’t care to watch previews on. If I wanted commercials I would pay for cable tv. Please work on this app because there is potential, but if I have to struggle to find content I like I will not keep my subscription.
Horrible for travel
by Zapping on 2019/08/29 10:36
Works ok if you are at home on decent WiFi to watch a show. However major issues if you travel and are on public hotspots. I downloaded a bunch of episodes for a work trip. Went to play in my hotel only to be told it couldn’t play because I was on a VPN (I guess they don’t like customer security). Went to airplane mode, downloaded shows still wouldn’t play. Only could get them to play by connecting without VPN. And that was domestic US travel. On another international trip tried the same thing, but once I connected without vpn and it saw I was in Europe it corrupted all of the downloaded files. Support says this is a feature, not a bug. I understand they have legal obligations on where their films can be accessed, but this app puts those well above customer security and usability. Other apps don’t seem to have as big of issues.
A cut above the rest
by carfl on 2019/02/17 07:31
I have both the STARZ and HBO now apps. STARZ allows you to download many movies and shows from series so that when I am on a plane, traveling as passenger in a car or elsewhere, or just having WiFi issues, I can still watch my downloaded movies or series without issue. I’d be so much happier if HBO now offeredthe same. On top of that, STARZ has a good mix of oldies but goodies (from the 80’s and 90’s) as well as new releases. It’s also under $10 per month, where HBO now is $15. STARZ has been great, I never have issues with it in my apple iPad mini v 2 AND 4, and no issues on my iPhones. Highly recommend.
Apple TV App
by I'm THE GingerBradMan on 2020/08/10 18:32
This review is for the Apple TV version of the STARZ app...while content is great, some “features” of the app are very frustrating. When watching a series, I understand the need to ask every few episodes if I am still watching, however, it is unnecessary to show me a commercial for other content each time I click continue. Also, I appreciate the ability to “skip” this commercial, however 9 times out of 10, just as I am pressing the button to “skip”, that button suddenly updates to “add to Playlist”. So, Then I have to go all the way out of whatever series I am watching, go into the playlist, remove whatever it was that I didn’t intend to add, return to the series and try to get to the current episode and continue my viewing. VERY disruptive and unnecessary steps. Please fix this in next update!
The Apple TV app: Very buggy
by Sam Stigler on 2019/03/01 05:23
The Apple TV app is a mixed bag: Most if it works fine, except when it doesn’t. In that past week I’ve run into two bugs: 1. More frequent: App becomes completely unresponsive to user input; only fixed after force-quitting the app — perhaps multiple times. 2. Only happened once thus far: The audio for the show I was watching earlier resumed playing as soon as I reentered (foregrounded) the app, despite the app not actually being on the player screen. When I went back to the player screen and resumed it from the user interface, the audio that had been playing previously kept playing at the same time as (and out-of-sync with) the correct audio for the playhead at which I had resumed the video via the UI. Starz: Please fix your tvOS app!!!
Who made your application?!! A 7-year-old?!
by Billie1979 on 2019/01/27 13:42
Ok I love the content that STARZ offers, if ONLY the app worked good enough to WATCH CONTENT! Every single time I go into the STARZ app on my Apple device I have to log in to my cable provider. EVERY TIME. And NOW it will only play about a minute worth of what I’m watching before it logs me back out AGAIN. I’ve always had similar issues with STARZ and I feel like whoever makes apps that WORK for other networks that’s what STARZ needs to do! They are making money but their application is beyond subpar. I’m disgusted from going through this time after time and I usually don’t bother writing bad reviews but this is how frustrated this makes me. It makes me not want anything to do with STARZ. Get ur crap together!
Good luck trying to Cancel your Subscription
by Sam______A on 2019/10/02 19:16
I downloaded this through the website witch led me to the AppStore and once I got all signed up FOR THE FREE TRIAL, I watched one movie! I wanted to cancel straight after so I wouldn’t get charged but I thought oh wait it’s just a free subscription they’ll send me an email saying I’m close to ending my free trial. Right?! WRONG! No email. No heads up! Nothing! They proceeded to charge me 8 bucks and change which is no big deal but when I wanted to follow the instructions to cancel, it wouldn’t even show up on my subscriptions! But I know I’m subscribed because it charged me 8 bucks just yesterday! So I’m calling them and trying to find a way to cancel but I’m spending an hour on the phone and still no one is answering. Please think twice about purchasing this app and signing up for a free trial. It is NOT WORTH IT!
Impossible to Use
by Nikiola12 on 2019/07/16 22:55
This review is merely for the app, not the service itself. The app is dysfunctional and, frankly, getting on my last nerve. I can see that this is a new 3.13.4 version from 22hrs ago so perhaps that’s why I’ve been having problems. I was watching a show and anytime I exited the app, even if only for a minute, there would be a tiny padlock symbol in the corner of the icon to resume my show. If I tried to play it, I received the following message: FIRST: A QUICK PIECE OF BUSINESS While you now have access to tons of your favorite stuff, this title isn't offered by your provider. We're confident that you will find more of the obsessable series and movies that you crave. This was weird considering that I should be able to watch whatever I want with my provider. I tried turning my phone off and on again, logging out and then back in, etc. until I just logged out, deleted the app, and turned my phone off. When I turned my phone back on and re-downloaded the app, it wouldn’t let me log on. Listen, I have like 3 episodes left of this show I’m watching and I’d really like to just finish it, assuming I’ll ever be able to log back on. After that, I’ll probably never touch this app again.
Money grab
by Britton A on 2018/11/26 07:42
I had starz before and never had an issue. I canceled my subscription when I ran out of things to watch. Now there’s new content I want to watch so I tried to renew through the app. It let me log in and I assumed everything was fine... for three days now I’ve been trying to watch movies and ever time I click play I get a renew subscription alert. So, I click it. It pulls up the disclaimer saying is 8.99 a month, I click renew again. The screen goes back to the movies, I click a movie and play again and go through all of it again. I received an email from apple saying that I’m now being billed again. So I know it should be accessible. I’ve tried closing out the app and reopening, no effect. I’ve updated the app and closed it, no effect. I’ve deleted the app and re installed, no effect. What’s the deal starz?
App quits while watching for a couple of minutes
by cgk245 on 2018/08/03 20:29
Unlike other apps, this app is most annoying. When I start to watch an episode, it quits after a few minutes and I have to reboot the app again. It's so frustrating, I thought it might be the show I was watching, but it did it on others as well. I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times. I downloaded episodes, thinking this was the problem. To no avail, this app needs repair. I have no issues on the NBC or other apps. Fix it, I like some of your shows. It's not my IPad, it's your app!
Twist & turns
by favshow on 2019/01/11 04:38
The Outlander series is a history lesson and love story. The characters face adversity with such strong conviction of over coming the strife of daily life in the 1700’s. Survival of the fittest was never more prevalent and yet they manage to live, and thrive in very precarious times. Disease, wild animals, scoundrels, native Americans are constantly crossing their paths. The family unit is central to these folks. Extended family they bond with makes them stronger. I am so pleasantly surprised and admire the amazing acting skills of this cast! I’m looking forward to the next season. Well done and thank you all for such an amazing season again!

Outlander
by enily m on 2020/03/06 08:27
I can’t say enough about this series. It’s undoubtedly the best story I’ve ever seen and the books are equally as good. Diana Galbaldon is brilliant and I can’t put the books down.. I’ve probably watched the series ten times at least and see something I’ve missed each time I watch it. The love story is beautiful and Jamie and Claire do a wonderful job of making it so , very, very real. I’m at series number five now and I can’t wait for Sunday to get here I wish it would neyver end. Thanks so much for the outstanding job you’ve all done. It should certainly win all kinds of awards.
I love Starz
by playa_mar_cielo on 2017/10/12 12:59
I purchased the app to watch American Gods, which I love! I've now discovered other original shows by Starz, like the pirate drama Black Sails, that I'm looking forward to getting into. White Queen is next with a little trip down Memory Lane in the form of Good Times and Sanford and Son after that. Did you know they have vintage TV shows on this app? They do. The app itself is easy to use with a beautiful and intuitive user interface. Their equivalent of the hourglass and spinning rainbow disc is a lovely and neat little graphic. Okay, back to Black Sails. Starz, what do you think about adding Chico and the Man?
Cannot access app content
by Tara MT on 2017/10/03 11:31
I cannot seem to log in. I signed up for the free trial, but when I went to log in I got a warning about a token. Since I figured I would want to watch outlander anyways, I went ahead and signed up for 1 month thinking it was an issue with the trial. It still didn’t work. When I tried to say change password, it said that it doesn’t recognize my email address, but I cannot get to the screen to set up a new account. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app, cancelled and reapplied the subscription and basically tried everything I can think of the clear up this glitch. I recently downloaded the new iOS, so I don’t know if that could be the issue... anyways, if this can’t be cleared up I hope I will be refunded as I have not benefited from this service at all.
Buffers too much
by Pisces0828 on 2018/05/15 04:49
My main grip with this app is navigating - when I go to the Resume Menu for instance and I want to watch Outlander Blade may cover a quarter of the Outlander box when I click on Outlander I get Blade also there are no pictures of the show in the boxes so I go to the Series Menu where there are also no pictures but no double boxes. The app buffers a lot. - I always have my phone or iPad at my side to pass the time when I start the app when I go to a movie when I start a movie because anytime you go to another it buffers.I have three other streaming services they do buffer when you first go into it but it’s for two or seconds this app can really stand some improvements - I don’t plan on keeping it for a long period of time
Terrible first experience
by Jaidhe on 2019/03/16 02:17
I just downloaded the STARZ app on my phone so I could activate the app on my Samsung TV. Tried to play an episode on my TV. It took forever to load, then started playing without a picture, The picture showed up for a second before promptly booting me out. I rebooted my TV as instructed on Samsung help, but continued to have the same problem. Tried to download the app on my iPad and when I opened the app it says “stream overload, four devices at one time is the max. please stop playback on an active device and try again.” I only have the app on the TV, my phone, and now the iPad. That is three devices. None of which are playing anything! Very frustrating. I was excited to start watching my series tonight. Thank goodness it’s a free trial. I will not waste my money on this app.
