STARZPLAY review

Introduction

The Starz channel joins the mainstream and launches a Netflix-like app, which offers you a variety of original TV shows and movies with a single subscription. Let’s take a look at whether this HBO and Netflix competitor is worth your hard-earned money.  

Features

You can start your free trial and check out all the functions and content for a month. This app can download for you full movies and TV shows so you can watch them offline.

If you already have a subscription, you can just download the app and enjoy it on your mobile device right away. 

Here are the features you get as a subscriber:

  • Full downloads of original series and movies; 
  • Starz original series;
  • The biggest box office smashes;
  • Weekly updates with new movies and original series;
  • A different genre for every mood or occasion.

Usability

The app is very well adapted to mobile devices, so we can’t complain about its performance. The StarzPlay experience reminds of HBO Now, though it has certain differences. 

The content is shown in a simple and effective waym, though the service presents them in the form of recommendations and rows, which is more similar to Netflix than to HBO Now. On mobile devices, the StarzPlay uses on-screen controls, where you can tap the screen during a show to pause it, move it in ten-second jumps, or seek with a slider. 

The app’s overall performance is great. HD programs are always in HD, loading time is short, and the interface is smooth and intuitive, so you can switch the screens really fast, searching for the movies and TV shows you’d like to watch. 

The major downside of the service is that it’s only accessible in the US. Here, it definitely loses to Netflix, which is available in 190 countries.

Good

The StarzPlay service offers a great variety of content and a pleasant user experience on Android and iOS devices. It’s a great option for fans of the channel’s original series, but in my opinion, it’s way overplayed by the competitor by this time. Netflix has a richer movie selection, and HBO has the best original series.
