Why Starz will make you love winter

Why Starz will make you love winter

Brrr… it’s a bit chilly out there. To quote a certain king, winter is coming – and that means it’s time to slip into your snuggly pyjamas, chuck some popcorn in the microwave, and get cozy with a loved one on the sofa…

It’s binge-watching season, folks.

And we’ve got the perfect antidote to the winter blues: Starz Play.

Starz Play is the streaming service from Starz, creator of such iconic original shows as Golden Globe® nominated Outlander, swashbuckling pirate adventure Black Sails, and the blood-spattered Roman drama Spartacus.


Having joined the streaming set fairly late in the game, Starz has already outdone Netflix with some of the most critically-acclaimed shows around. According to this report from Cut Cable Today, Starz original content is among the highest rated on Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic – beating even that of its euphemism-spawning rival – making it a solid choice for an evening’s entertainment.

Starz has a long history of showing the best movies. It started in 1994 with Scent of a Woman and the harrowing, multi-award winning drama, The Crying Game. Today, it shows hundreds of box office hits such as Inferno, Passengers, and Don’t Breathe, as well as classics like Ghostbusters, Top Gun, and Mrs Doubtfire.

And let’s face it: going to the cinema is pretty expensive nowadays – especially once you’ve bought that stale popcorn and a litre of soda you’ll need to pee out halfway through the film. Not to mention the queues, noisy patrons, and ads at the beginning (what the heck happened to just showing movie trailers?).

Why brave all that (and the rain) when Starz provides your own stockpile of awesome movies and TV shows for just $8.99 a month? That’s less than the cost of a movie ticket.

There are over 1,000 TV shows and movies to enjoy, with new content every week, so you’ll always have something fun and exciting to watch, whatever mood you’re in. Starz covers all genres – from horror to romantic comedy – so you’re guaranteed to find something your friends will love for your next movie night.

And that price gives you unlimited streaming, anywhere. The Starz Play app lets you download movies and TV shows so you can take them with you wherever you go – meaning your morning commute just got a helluva lot more fun.

Better yet, Starz are offering a 7-day free trial. That’s a whole week to decide if you want to subscribe, or just go on a marathon binge for free – either way, you win. So as the nights draw in and the weather changes, invite your friends and family over to enjoy the best movies and TV shows from Starz.
