STARZ to launch on DIRECTV NOW

Starz (NASDAQ: STRZA, STRZB) and STARZ ENCORE premium pay TV channels and services will be available on the new AT&T streaming service DIRECTV NOW, the company said.

When DIRECTV NOW launches later this month, the service will feature 8 STARZ ENCORE channels, with more STARZ channels to be added at a later date, including the full STARZ and STARZ ENCORE VOD catalogs, including both current and past seasons of STARZ Original series.

The addition of the Starz channels and services to the forthcoming DIRECTV NOW platform was part of a recently completed comprehensive multi-year agreement that extended Starz´ longtime relationships with AT&T/DIRECTV.

Starz is an integrated global media and entertainment company with operating units that provide premium subscription video programming on domestic US pay television networks (Starz Networks) and global content distribution (Starz Distribution).
