Verizon seeing Starz


The new Starz Play broadband video service from Starz Entertainment will make its debut on the Verizon FiOS system. The new subscription service will allow customers to watch live Starz programming and to download and view movies and videos an unlimited number of times at no additional charge.

The two companies also announced an extension and expansion of their current FiOS TV affiliation agreement, which was signed in April 2005. The new agreement secures delivery of all 16 Starz, Encore and MoviePlex premium commercial-free movie channels, the company’s HD channels, and the associated Starz Entertainment subscription VOD offerings: Starz On Demand, Starz HD On Demand, Encore On Demand and Encore HD On Demand.
