Starz, a Lionsgate subsidiary, on Oct. 23 announced that its app is now available on Hulu, including the online TV service “Hulu with Live TV.”
Hulu, which is co-owned by 20th Century Fox, The Walt Disney Co., Comcast and WarnerMedia, said its 20+ million subscribers can now add the Starz app (for $8.99 monthly fee) and gain access to the network’s live Starz and Starz Encore pay-TV channels, in addition to on-demand current and past seasons of original series “Outlander,” “Power,” “Vida,” “Counterpart,” and “American Gods,” among others.
Movies include Sony Pictures Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Spider-Man: Homecoming, among others.
Hulu with Live TV ($39.99) includes live and on-demand programming from more than 50 sports, news, entertainment and kids’ channels, including CNN, Fox News, ESPN, TBS and local ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC channels.
In a previously announced deal, Hulu has been the exclusive subscription streaming home to past seasons of Starz original series “Power.” Since “Power” launched on Hulu last year, subscribers have streamed nearly 50 million hours of the series.
All past episodes of the drama series through season four are currently available on-demand to all Hulu subs, and now with the Starz app, users can watch all episodes of “Power” – including season five – on supported devices.
Starz joins HBO and Cinemax as premium add-on apps available to Hulu subs. Hulu subscription plans include its $7.99 per month “limited commercials” plan; $11.99 per month “no commercials” plan and the Hulu with Live TV plan.
