Monday, Jun 22, 2015

Starz has launched a version of Starz Play, its authenticated TV Everywhere app, for the Amazon Fire TV box and Fire TV Stick.   

In addition to the Fire TV and browsers, Starz has also built and launched Starz Play apps for iOS and Android mobile devices, Kindle Fire and Nook tablets, and the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. It has also optimized the app to run on the Chromecast, Google’s streaming adapter.   

Starz said the app currently offers more than 450 monthly selections, including about 300 movies and more than 150 episodes from originals such as Power, Outlander, Survivor’s Remorse, Black Sails and Spartacus.   

The premium programmer also announced that has begun to offer a live, linear feed of the flagshp Starz channel via Starz Play on PCs and Macs. Starz has not announced when it might bring live feeds to its other TVE platforms.   

The programmer’s two other TVE apps – Encore Play and Movieplex Play  – are offered on Web browsers, iOS and Android devices, the Kindle Fire, Nook tablets, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and via the Chromecast.   

Amazon’s Fire TV platform supports several other TVE apps, including HBO Go, Showtime Anytime and WatchESPN, among others.
