faith4vincera - App Review, Not Content (device iPad Pro)
First, the app content is good.
My issue/frustration is with the functionality of the app itself. My biggest pain point (and it’s a big one for me) is that the app times out quickly and the video closes, especially whenever my iPad screen times out. So, say I hit Pause on a video for more than a minute or two and/or step away from my iPad long enough for the screen to lock, when I return, I have to reopen STARZ, and re-navigate to the video I was watching from the STARZ home screen. This also occurs when I switch between apps. Whenever STARZ is temporarily moved to the background, I have to search all over again. This is the only app I’ve encountered that does this, making it especially noticeable. Also, other apps have the PIP “drawer” functionality where you can slide a video off screen and return to it. This is not the case in STARZ... the video disappears, and again, if it has been a significant amount of time, I have to re-navigate back. It’d be nice to have quicker access to the main menus, and to time out on the active content’s description screen (but keep the video window open if in PIP mode).
spatrickmartin - Possibly the easiest movie app ever made
STARZ app is awesome in so many aspects. It has TONS of great movies and a nice selection of very well done and unique series such as Attila and The White Queen. It's also the easiest to navigate by far of almost every app on my phone I use to view movies on. They have quite the selection for the money and it's something I don't see ever canceling unless things go downhill but I've had this subscription a good couple of years now or near enough. I can't recommend how good it is with something for everyone, including the children. With this price point I often wondered why I ever bothered with some of my other subscriptions but they all seem to have something to offer that's unique but if I could only have my pick of two or three, STARZ would definitely be in my top 3.
ajay1760 - App is terrible ( not a content review)
I don’t understand how this late in the game STARZ has such a terrible app. The interface isn’t good but the part that is most frustrating to me is that it’s nearly impossible to fast forward or rewind a show/movie. Dragging the bar at the bottom does not work to rewind/fast-forward, it just freezes the video then you have to hit pause then hit play for it to jump back to where you started from. I’ve had to use the 10-second jump feature to fast forward or rewind large parts of a video. And the best part is, when hitting the 10-second jump repeatedly, instead of rewinding/fast-forwarding 10-seconds, it only goes 6-seconds.
I’m not paying for a streaming app where the basic features don’t work. The ability to rewind/fast-forward is something I’ve always taken for granted because no other streaming service has a problem with this, it’s such a basic functionality. I just paid for the first month after a free trial, but this is not worth it and I’ll be cancelling. There’s way too many other options with good content out there to pay for an app that has a lazy, outdated interface and lacks basic functionality.
VIPER31415 - Does not allow the use of stars app
The description says that we can use the starz app but after signing up to the starz monthly app and tried to sign into the starz app I get a log in error. I have tried on all my devices iPad Pro, iPhone 7, apple tc 4K, Samsung 4K tv and non apple devices. I am locked to ONLY using the tv app (to watch starz content via the starz Apple TV channel).
I contacted starz and they said apple needs to release our credentials to them because as of now starz cannot see a subscription when signed up via the Apple TV channel.
I also contacted apple and after an hour of chatting they finally told me that starz monthly subscription is ONLY allowed for use with the tv app via apple devices or smart TVs with the tv app and NOT the starz app. I told the rep that the current description is misleading and should be revised to let us know that we CANNOT use the starz app with this subscription and we CANNOT use the starz monthly app with our current tv provider unless that’s still in the works and will be available soon and is so please let us know in the app description as well.
EcGwyn - Terribly glitchy app
Love STARZ content but the app is the worst I’ve experienced for any streaming service, paid or not.
-Sometimes buffering takes place mid-episode and takes several seconds despite having very high-speed internet.
-Sound goes out periodically then resumes later in the episode, sometimes multiple times (sometimes for a second or two a time, sometimes for several minutes). I’ve been using the app for 3 days and it’s happened at least 3 times on different episodes.
-Often an episode won’t play when highlighted from the series page, and the entire app freezes up. I have to exit and reopen the app then re-navigate, going to series, show, then selecting the episode from the relevant season and click through that way to “wake it up” instead of just selecting the most recently watched episode as soon as I open the app and resuming where I left off.
-Sometimes when resuming an episode, it spins the timer wheel indefinitely no matter what or how many times I try (even restarting Apple TV) until I first select and play a different episode before returning to the one I actually wanted to watch. Again, having to find a way to “wake it up” from a freeze.
Can’t believe there are this many issues with a paid premium channel app, it’s barely worth it to watch the content jumping through so many hoops to do so, and it certainly doesn’t encourage me to continue a subscription beyond the trial.
RBragantini - Enjoying the content, but removing ads for episodes (at least beyond the pilot) would be nice
Update: it seems like what I thought was another episode playing was actually a 30 second ad. It was difficult for me to tell the difference between the ad and a recap, so I thought the episodes were mixed up.
Original review: I’ve liked the stability of the app so far, but it seems like some episodes are mixed up. For example, episode 2 of The White Princess, “Hearts and Minds,” is actually missing. When I’ve tried to play the episode in the app, an episode from “The Spanish Princess” plays instead. I’ve tried this across devices, so it seems like a problem with the app itself, and not my access to it. It’s not a huge deal, but it did make me log off Starz and onto another streaming service to watch something else during my downtime.
WhyIsANickNameNecessary - Black Sails
I subscribed to STARZ to watch Black Sails after catching the first few episodes on Netflix overseas and got hooked. I loved this show. I love pirates and Treasure Island was one of my favorite books as a young boy. I was a bit disappointed this show only has 4 seasons, but it ended well. Definitely not Disney pirates. I plan to keep the app to evaluate for a bit. I have heard good things about some of the other series. I hope I find more shows as binge-worthy. The app itself works very well and I rarely had issues except with occasionally losing my place when moving devices, but this is a minor grievance and it worked well enough most of the time. I will continue to subscribe at least a few more months if I find some other series on here that I like.
cmm472 - Not renewing subscription
I had an annual subscription to Starz but I am not going to renew. First, you run a promo ad before every movie with no way to skip it, but a box with an “add to playlist” prompt. The auto play feature is awful and never matches my taste; I don’t want to watch Venom and I don’t like violent films. The ratings screen pops up at random. I would be happy to provide ratings but more consistently than a film a week. You have a recommendation list, but again it is nothing that matches my taste. Your movie library is pretty limited, and again you seem to show quite a few violent movies and TV shows. If you would improve the Roku app and the recommendation algorithm, I would probably keep my subscription, but currently the setup spoils the viewing experience. I contacted customer service quite a while ago (pre COVID) about my concerns and got a snarky response about how you had no plans to improve anything, so I guess I don’t need Starz anymore.
10thDoc.Who - App is fine I guess... service sucked though
Lately I’ve been having an issue with watching certain movies on the app. The following message that ‘this title is not provided by your provider’ appears. Even though I have a cable subscription to not only STARZ but it’s subsidiary channels (i.e. Encore). While I understand that most people choose to pay for individual services via the app; decidedly if I paid $4.99 a month for the streaming service and such I’d more than likely be allowed access to all the titles I wished to watch. But I have a so called ‘grandfathered package’ with my cable company which allows me access to basically ALL the so called premium channels for a significant discount.
My overall point being is that if you’re going provide a service to one customer and not the other over the difference of ‘service provider ‘ or whatever at least have the decency to have an app that wouldn’t bother to show me something I could not watch.
MonkeyBlue69 - Terrible App For IPhone
I have been using the STARZ app for iPhone and it CONSTANTLY at least 90% of the time, when I select something to watch, after the previews, there is NO sound for the movie. Just silence. I have to close out, reboot several times before sound starts playing for the movie. Tonight I haven’t been able to get a single movie to play with sound. Previews and their ads, plays no problem can hear everything, the moment the movie plays.... zero sound.
What is the point of paying for this monthly if I can’t watch anything I am paying for! 40mins of my night wasted trying to play something on this app. Very disappointed and if not fixed will be canceling. If you watch primarily on iPhone and iPad like I do, be expected for constant aggravation in trying to get anything to play correctly. How they have so many good reviews is beyond me. HBO Max came out and it’s all messed up but at least everything I select to watch plays. Maybe I will just stick with them moving forward.
nashville jules - The constant ads are maddening
They have 2-3 standout series right now, but when you’re binging a show, they have a forced ad for their other content that u can’t fast forward through. They’re the same 3 ads, they’re all for shows and movies that are 10-15 yrs old. Anytime u watch a bts extra feature that’s 4 mins long, you have to watch a forced ad for the first minute. Let ME search your app and find your content instead of shoving it down my throat. Even though I love power and outlander the ads are almost more than I can take. None of my other subscription services inflict these in this way, in this quantity. The 60 second one that’s playing right now has graphic horror movies featured and I dont watch that kind of content bc it scares me. So bc I can’t ff I have to avert my eyes from my own tv for the 30 seconds that it’s playing. When I’m forced to have it on my screen before every episode that plays almost??? It’s too much. If they don’t stop soon, I’ll be cancelling my service.
huhuhll - LEGAL SCAM DONT FALL FOR IT
I was on my 3rd day of my (7 day day FREE trial) as with any subscription even if you get a free trial you have to CANCEL it before the trial ends so you don’t get charged. THIS APP makes it ALMOST impossible to UNSUBSCRIBE. The Number on the website is an ACTUAL scam that doesn’t work. I’m on IPHONE and the robot/instructions tell you to go to SETTINGS/ITUNES/APPLE ID/ SUB.. ETC the app doesn’t show up there not just for me FOR EVERYONE. you have to go to where ever you Subscribed from ( which for one is DUMB but obviously it’s to make it harder FOR ANYONE TO CANCEL) I figured it out because I’m 18 years old and I have my ways with technology but I’m sure even the younger people would have trouble canceling. AS FOR older people never in ONE HUNDRED YEARS would they find a way to cancel. The APP charges you $8 and then when you finally see it in your bank account you’re able to unsubscribe. A LEGAL SCAM is what this is. YOU SHOULD ALL BE ASHAMED OF THIS COMPANY. ( ALSO don’t get fooled by the TEXT colors when trying to cancel they also use that to fool you.
from the Pen of the Archer - Outlander on film
Beautifully done! I’m amazed how so many of the original story lines have been twisted around to fit the screen. I am pleased with the selection of the characters in the story. In my imagination I pictured the characters a little different but as the story continues I can’t imagine anyone else having the ability to portray Jamie and Claire as does Catriona and Sam! Very pleased to be watching this series and Bravo to Diana Gabaldon because although I’ve always been entranced by the the stories of the Highlanders, ( from Karen Marie Moning too), I never knew the history of the Scotts and the history that followed the battle of Culloden. The service of indentured soldiers and bondsmen were a mystery to me. I have a greater appreciation of History as the story unfolds. Thank you STARZ!
dramadonthurt - Great Service, Some Terrible App Functionality
I’ve really been enjoying my STARZ subscription. The content and selection are great. Playback and menus all function well!
However, I take issue with a few things:
The Autoplay feature: When movies end this NEEDS to be optional. I cannot figure out how to turn this off. I understand auto-playing the next episode of a show immediately after one ends, but a movie? Why would I want some random unrelated content to start on it’s own? Not only do I like to choose what I watch next myself, but sometimes (shocker) I also like to watch the credits. (A lot of people worked hard to get their names up there and I have respect for that.) 15 seconds is not always enough time to get to the remote to cancel the autoplay.
Continue Watching feed: This always seems to include movies that I’ve already finished, even if I do manage to watch to the very end of the credits. It also invites me to continue watching the shows and movies that started up of their own accord when I did not cancel the autoplay fast enough. I have no intention of ever watching some of those titles, so their presence in my queue just gums the works and makes it harder to find the content I AM trying to resume. I would love to be able to hide these from the feed.
Apo11os - Log in with TV provider
At 8:15 this morning I downloaded the Starz App for the umpteenth time hoping the issue with the App not functioning properly would be repaired. I began signing in at 8:15. At 8:22 after going through the various steps I was finally signed in. Seven minutes? Can you imagine if it took 7 minutes to sign into every app? But that’s how it has been on my iPad Pro since October 2018. Once signed in I was able to watch about 50 seconds of programing before the App took me back to the sign in process to start all over again. Since Adobe became involved in this process signing into the App with your TV provider has become impossible. If Starz doesn’t want me to use my TV provider to utilize the App remove the option. This is beyond frustrating. I used to love this App but it is worthless now.
BeccaRabbit42 - Unimpressed so far
The free trial just ended and I’m hoping maybe now that they’re getting money out of me it will work better. I only downloaded the app because it was either that or spend over $100 to purchase the box set of the show I want to watch.
When the app opens it sometimes takes a minute or two to go to the home screen. Half the time it crashes before it even gets to that point. Most of the time that it doesn’t crash it just sits on the home screen, frozen. I’ve let it sit for a few minutes and come back and it still won’t let me navigate to the show I want to watch. It doesn’t seem to make a difference if I’m using WiFi or not. I also have the issue that someone else mentioned; any time you leave the app for more than a few seconds it restarts itself and you have to go through the whole process again.
The few times it does let me navigate it’s a pain to get to the show. It would make more sense to have your playlist accessible from the home screen. There is a “continue watching” section on the home screen, but so far every time I’ve tried using it it starts playing an episode I’ve already watched, making it fairly useless.
Currently attempting the download to play feature while connected to reliable WiFi. So far seems to be working, although it’s going about as fast as a herd of turtles stampeding through peanut butter.
Raesunshine321 - Low rating is for the platform only, the content is great
The app has so many issues it makes it too frustrating to watch. It constantly freezes and often won’t save where you are in the movie/show. It automatically starts another movie when the last ends and I am not sure what their formula is for the movie they chose to start but it’s nothing I would want to see. The title of the movie isn’t listed anywhere when you are watching the film so even if a movie starts that you end up liking, there is no way to know what movie it is. This is just the start of the issues with the platform itself and I have used my phone, an ipad and a Firestick...
All of this said they have a lot of really good movies and a few excellent shows. But I get so annoyed most of the time that I give up. I suggested it to 2 other people because of the content but they gave up too because good movies don’t really matter if you can’t actually watch them.
out8bux - Not so easy to cancel
The app worked fine but when it came time to cancel, it became a nightmare. The app didn’t show up in iTunes as a subscription, so couldn’t cancel the way their instructions said to. Tried to login on the website, but on the iPad, the site forces you to open the app. The app says cancel on iTunes or on website. This was a maddening circle until I was finally able to login to the site via a computer. When I clicked the link to cancel, it kept prompting me to keep trying the service and cancel the cancellation, which, I believe, is purposely worded to confuse someone into canceling the cancellation rather than canceling the service. Tried to cancel before the free trial expired but since it wasn’t on my list of subscriptions in iTunes, thought I wouldn’t be billed. Don’t be fooled like I was. If you want to cancel, make sure you find the right link on the website, don’t assume you won’t be billed just cause the app doesn’t appear in iTunes.
Momma flaten - Made me happy
I was watching Outlander on my iPad. Suddenly I started getting a pop up saying playback error. I’d hit OK and it took me back to the episode selection where I’d hit resume and continue watching. It did it a dozen times in the course of one episode. DISH tech support can’t figure it out. I deleted the app and the iPad itself, then restarted everything. That was the last best idea I was given. I was getting frustrated! Finally got the idea to look for a STARZ app. It’s been smooth sailing ever since I started using the app instead of DISH Anywhere. Your app is easier to navigate and has better picture quality too. If you’ve seen Outlander, you’ll know how happy I was to continue half way thru season 3. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Ticked off confused costomer - I still get charged with "free" subscription even tho I quit
On a whim I signed up for a free trial to watch only 2 movies and be done with it. Empahsis on FREE TRIAL. The app itself was bad because it never worked properly but again, I needed to watch 2 things on a whim and be done with it. For free. After I was done, ended my free trial, and deleted the apps, I was still charged by STARZ, now monthly. Going on their website on my ipad, iphone, and laptop and following their instructing on how to deleted my suppose free trial, but because it was a free trial NONE of my devices seem to recognise the subscription and I cannot delete anything, file a report on apple, or even get decent help and explanation on why I supposedly now have a monthly paid subscription AND while the "cancel subscription" button is mysteriously gone from all three of my devices on my account. I want help and I don't want to pay for STARZ anymore when it was never meant to be my intention to be a subscribed member.
ExBritinUSA - The very Best adaptation of the series of books
I've read and reread Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series of books since they were first published in the early 90's.
Initially I was curious as to how close the STARZ series would come to them. While the books hold more detail, this series is EXCELLENT! The selection of the cast, the work of the crew, the writing of the scripts and the direction is superior. I also enjoy the discussions at the end if each episode.
I continue to reread the books and rewatch the previous seasons before each season and I am never disappointed.
I'm not a purist, in that every utterance in the book is captured on screen - that’s impossible. So thank you for such brilliant interpretation and entertainment.
Desgazon - App Never Works Properly
I have an iPhone and I recently became a subscriber to STARZ and everything seem to be working just fine. When it was time to renew my subscription and I paid it, then I was not able to watch any movies at all. I am not very happy that my money was taken and I cannot even watch anything. I was on the phone for almost 40 minutes trying to speak to a customer service representative and this issue still has not been rectified. “Power”has to be the number one show watched right now and I cannot even watch it, I wonder how much money the actors/producers are losing by people not being able to watch through the app. If this is able to be fixed soon I may renew my subscription for November if not I guess I will not be watching it anymore, because I do not have time to go through this every single time when I can watch another app that will give me the service that I deserve.
AmandaDee86 - App is terrible for steaming (not content review)
This app is not very functional with streaming and navigating compared to other apps like it. The design of Starz streaming service is far behind other streaming services on the market.
Most streaming services will allow the user to pick up where you leave off. If I watch part of a movie and want to come back to finish watching it tomorrow, I have to manually navigate to the movie and find the location I left off. I enjoy a particular series, but I have to remember what season I’m on and manually navigate to the episode. Watching multiple episodes of the same series requires the user to manually select to watch the next, rather than auto-playing like most streaming services, with no option to skip recaps or opening credits. Navigation is hugely inconvenient especially when casting to a Smart TV.
Spartacus, the True Leader - Spartacus-Blood & Sand
Third time I've watched this show, but still missing a lot of episodes, thru my own fault!!! I absolutely LOVE these types of shows. When Kirk Douglas acted in the role, he did not know our History, very well!!! It was like I lost interest in watching more of bad rotten like sequels!!!
Andy was wonderful as Spartacus, and it was so sad to see him and assume that he was in a dangerous fight of his own personal life. I'm sure all the other fans felt and still feel the sorrow of his demise!!!
Thank you for reading my feelings in this first Spartacus and assume that he was coming back at the beginning of this great movie!!!
I'm not sure of the new Spartacus, and how he will fill wonderful,l Andy's shoes or make that sandals. Well, that's about all I can say on this movie and the new actor that has taken Andy's place.
Thank you for your attention on reading this and of Andy taking care of his failing, and keep this program going on. Thanks again, Nick Donvito, a true FAN!!!😎😎😎😇😇😇🚔🚔🚔🚓🚓🚓👮👮👮!!! I hope al the sequels do very well also!!!
Good night (or morning) and I'm so glad to see so many other fans!!!
KingPenn13 - Frustrating
The content is fine, the functionality is not. The app doesn’t work a lot of the time. It freezes up on the main menu as soon as I open it. If I’m downloading something, it locks up. Sometimes, if I pause what I’m watching, or have to close the app to do something else, the show or movie I was watching will reset back to the beginning, and when I try to set it back to where I left off, it will automatically reset to the start. It does this two or three times before finally playing where I move it back to where it is supposed to be. These problems are on my iPhone X. It works fine on my Roku boxes, and one of my Samsung TVs. But another one of my Samsung TVs, it lags pretty bad and won’t even play most of the time. And WiFi signal is not an issue.
S537rhdgk - Beware. These people are crooks
They received cancellation (through Apple) of my services well within the service month. On the date the services were set to “expire”, they took the next months payment out of my account. Services were cancelled and money for the month was taken as well. After waiting on hold for 55 minutes to speak with a representative yesterday, I was told that I would be given a refund. Today I received an email blaming me and the bank. According to STARZ, you must cancel the service with them and notify the bank not to make the payment. Really STARZ? Does that seem reasonable or logical?! So pay 25-35 dollars for the bank to stop payment on a bonafide cancelled service?! Really?! I don’t even want them on my regular cable plan anymore because of this. I ONLY got the app to finish the season of Power. So you got double for that month. And you greedily take more?!
Most Satisfied Sue - Outlander Season Three
I just rewatched the first four episodes of season three. The writers are to be applauded; you had a difficult task capturing all of the most heart-wrenching and important parts of Diana’s outstanding novels. To all of the actors, BRAVO! I sat mesmerized and almost in tears at the end of each episode. You have truly done an amazing job bringing this story to the screen. to all of the crew, directors, and everyone involved in the making of this most excellent production, my utmost gratitude. You have given the Outlander fans quite a treat. and hopefully, new viewers will delight in this story as well. Forge on in the making of upcoming episodes and know that you are all truly appreciated! Sue Schelvan, Huntington Beach, Ca.
Lisa Renfro - Fan of the Outlander Series
I have read all the Outlander books as they were written. I was so excited when they made the series. I read them when first published, so I got new copies and read them again to catch up on what happens when. The series is very close to the books. I could not wait to see Fergus and Ian grown up. I told my sister and daughter in law what a good series it was and we have been watching together. I can hardly wait for each week to pass to watch it play out. Such a wonderful blend of history, romance, drama and science fiction. I keep wishing there would be a book 9. Thanks for doing such a wonderful job being true to these iconic characters.
SheSheSoFyne - App won’t allow me or play movies
I’ve always had this app and used it to watch Power last season. Tonight while trying to watch the new season of Power the play icon is there but it will NOT play the show!!!! I’m beyond bummed because I’ve always used my iPad in the past to watch. Somebody PLEASE fix this issue, what’s the purpose of having an app that you can’t watch if the play icon is a bust. Hopefully you can fix this before the season is over. To be clear the play icon doesn’t work for anything. I reinstalled app and everything. PLEASE HELP AND FIX. I’d love to give y’all a higher rating but it doesn’t work. Ugh!
Kevin.Watts - Constantly being logged out...
The app seems to have updates often but I still consistently run into the logged out issue which is quite annoying. If I minimize (using my ipad) the app or do not use the app for more than an hour I get logged out or run into an error message. Thank goodness I have cellular on my ipad because when logging back in if I am on wifi, Adobe will not recognize the server and will not allow me to log in. Using adobe to log in is weird enough, It is repetitive and extremely annoying. Luckily my iCloud Keychain works after I type in my email address but after I’m done with American Gods i’ll be more than happy to delete this app because of too many issues. I also linked it to my AppleTv account but when it switches over, the same issue occurs...buckets of fun.
JosieJo86 - App doesn’t open after update
I started my 7 day free trial yesterday. I watched 5 minutes of a movie and shut it off because I had to leave for work. This morning I opened app and it kept saying my internet wasn’t connected. In which it most certainly was connected. I went to App Store it stated that it needed an update. So I updated. Now it won’t even open. Every other app on my device has no problems opening. I even deleted apps I no longer use thinking it was a space issue. No... nothing. So I will like to cancel my subscription. Because I’m pretty sure after my 7 days is up it will miraculously open. If I can’t enjoy it for 7 days then why would I want to invest in a long term subscription? Sorry but I’m out. CANCEL this PLEASE. The App support will not open. So tell me how to get out of this. I hate to take drastic measures and cancel my card information on my App Store.
SaMo1969 - It’s not the programming, it’s the app functionality...
The content and programs are very good. I pay the subscription with no issues... I am not satisfied with the application functionality. I use the app mostly in my iPad and in my iPhone. First, it is slow in opening the app. It takes a while to open, sometimes giving an error and me having to try again. Second, it does not “remembers” the last time you used it, so you have to look for the correct chapter to continue viewing where you left it. Third, it opens in the incorrect chapter, and in order to be able to browse other chapters I have to go home, search for series, then the series I am looking for, and then all other available chapters. Please do something...
Zapping - Horrible for travel
Works ok if you are at home on decent WiFi to watch a show. However major issues if you travel and are on public hotspots. I downloaded a bunch of episodes for a work trip. Went to play in my hotel only to be told it couldn’t play because I was on a VPN (I guess they don’t like customer security). Went to airplane mode, downloaded shows still wouldn’t play. Only could get them to play by connecting without VPN. And that was domestic US travel. On another international trip tried the same thing, but once I connected without vpn and it saw I was in Europe it corrupted all of the downloaded files. Support says this is a feature, not a bug. I understand they have legal obligations on where their films can be accessed, but this app puts those well above customer security and usability. Other apps don’t seem to have as big of issues.
Never works properly!! - Never works properly!!
This is the worst tv network app I’ve ever had the misfortune of having to download. Lucky for STARZ, they have content I want to watch, otherwise I would never, ever use this terrible app. I’m forced to delete it and re-download it every time I watch something because it never works properly.
It asks me time and time again to enter an “optional” email address only to have a message pop up to enter a name. There is no field to enter a name! And if I enter a name into the “optional” email field or just try to move on from that page all together, a message pops up saying I must enter a valid email!
Whenever I want to play something, I hit play or download and nothing happens FOR HOURS. I have to keep hitting play all day until finally the show or movie actually plays. The other buttons, such as “share” or “more info” work fine!
And then, sometimes, it will start a video only to have a message pop saying the content can’t be played on my device (iPhone X), even though other videos have played all the way through, and the video will no longer play.
I’ve tried to look up solutions to this but there seems to be very little info online. (If anyone has any tips to deal with this TERRIBLE app please share!)
Prometheus88 - Great content, terrible interface
There’s a lot of movies I enjoy here. The frustrating part is finding movies I like, the interface just shows me the exact same content over and over again. Even when I watch more movies the system never changes, same “recommendations”. It also does not know when you’re finished watching a movie it thinks you need to finish. The captions option is not obvious to find. Also, why can I not have the option to skip previews? I am paying for a service that I don’t care to watch previews on. If I wanted commercials I would pay for cable tv. Please work on this app because there is potential, but if I have to struggle to find content I like I will not keep my subscription.
carfl - A cut above the rest
I have both the STARZ and HBO now apps. STARZ allows you to download many movies and shows from series so that when I am on a plane, traveling as passenger in a car or elsewhere, or just having WiFi issues, I can still watch my downloaded movies or series without issue. I’d be so much happier if HBO now offeredthe same. On top of that, STARZ has a good mix of oldies but goodies (from the 80’s and 90’s) as well as new releases. It’s also under $10 per month, where HBO now is $15. STARZ has been great, I never have issues with it in my apple iPad mini v 2 AND 4, and no issues on my iPhones. Highly recommend.
I'm THE GingerBradMan - Apple TV App
This review is for the Apple TV version of the STARZ app...while content is great, some “features” of the app are very frustrating. When watching a series, I understand the need to ask every few episodes if I am still watching, however, it is unnecessary to show me a commercial for other content each time I click continue. Also, I appreciate the ability to “skip” this commercial, however 9 times out of 10, just as I am pressing the button to “skip”, that button suddenly updates to “add to Playlist”. So, Then I have to go all the way out of whatever series I am watching, go into the playlist, remove whatever it was that I didn’t intend to add, return to the series and try to get to the current episode and continue my viewing. VERY disruptive and unnecessary steps. Please fix this in next update!
Sam Stigler - The Apple TV app: Very buggy
The Apple TV app is a mixed bag: Most if it works fine, except when it doesn’t. In that past week I’ve run into two bugs:
1. More frequent: App becomes completely unresponsive to user input; only fixed after force-quitting the app — perhaps multiple times.
2. Only happened once thus far: The audio for the show I was watching earlier resumed playing as soon as I reentered (foregrounded) the app, despite the app not actually being on the player screen. When I went back to the player screen and resumed it from the user interface, the audio that had been playing previously kept playing at the same time as (and out-of-sync with) the correct audio for the playhead at which I had resumed the video via the UI.
Starz: Please fix your tvOS app!!!
Billie1979 - Who made your application?!! A 7-year-old?!
Ok I love the content that STARZ offers, if ONLY the app worked good enough to WATCH CONTENT!
Every single time I go into the STARZ app on my Apple device I have to log in to my cable provider. EVERY TIME. And NOW it will only play about a minute worth of what I’m watching before it logs me back out AGAIN. I’ve always had similar issues with STARZ and I feel like whoever makes apps that WORK for other networks that’s what STARZ needs to do! They are making money but their application is beyond subpar. I’m disgusted from going through this time after time and I usually don’t bother writing bad reviews but this is how frustrated this makes me. It makes me not want anything to do with STARZ. Get ur crap together!
Sam______A - Good luck trying to Cancel your Subscription
I downloaded this through the website witch led me to the AppStore and once I got all signed up FOR THE FREE TRIAL, I watched one movie! I wanted to cancel straight after so I wouldn’t get charged but I thought oh wait it’s just a free subscription they’ll send me an email saying I’m close to ending my free trial. Right?! WRONG! No email. No heads up! Nothing! They proceeded to charge me 8 bucks and change which is no big deal but when I wanted to follow the instructions to cancel, it wouldn’t even show up on my subscriptions! But I know I’m subscribed because it charged me 8 bucks just yesterday! So I’m calling them and trying to find a way to cancel but I’m spending an hour on the phone and still no one is answering. Please think twice about purchasing this app and signing up for a free trial. It is NOT WORTH IT!
Nikiola12 - Impossible to Use
This review is merely for the app, not the service itself. The app is dysfunctional and, frankly, getting on my last nerve. I can see that this is a new 3.13.4 version from 22hrs ago so perhaps that’s why I’ve been having problems.
I was watching a show and anytime I exited the app, even if only for a minute, there would be a tiny padlock symbol in the corner of the icon to resume my show. If I tried to play it, I received the following message:
FIRST: A QUICK PIECE OF BUSINESS While you now have access to tons of your favorite stuff, this title isn't offered by your provider. We're confident that you will find more of the obsessable series and movies that you crave.
This was weird considering that I should be able to watch whatever I want with my provider. I tried turning my phone off and on again, logging out and then back in, etc. until I just logged out, deleted the app, and turned my phone off. When I turned my phone back on and re-downloaded the app, it wouldn’t let me log on.
Listen, I have like 3 episodes left of this show I’m watching and I’d really like to just finish it, assuming I’ll ever be able to log back on. After that, I’ll probably never touch this app again.
cgk245 - App quits while watching for a couple of minutes
Unlike other apps, this app is most annoying. When I start to watch an episode, it quits after a few minutes and I have to reboot the app again. It's so frustrating, I thought it might be the show I was watching, but it did it on others as well. I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times. I downloaded episodes, thinking this was the problem. To no avail, this app needs repair. I have no issues on the NBC or other apps. Fix it, I like some of your shows. It's not my IPad, it's your app!
Britton A - Money grab
I had starz before and never had an issue. I canceled my subscription when I ran out of things to watch. Now there’s new content I want to watch so I tried to renew through the app. It let me log in and I assumed everything was fine... for three days now I’ve been trying to watch movies and ever time I click play I get a renew subscription alert. So, I click it. It pulls up the disclaimer saying is 8.99 a month, I click renew again. The screen goes back to the movies, I click a movie and play again and go through all of it again. I received an email from apple saying that I’m now being billed again. So I know it should be accessible. I’ve tried closing out the app and reopening, no effect. I’ve updated the app and closed it, no effect. I’ve deleted the app and re installed, no effect. What’s the deal starz?
favshow - Twist & turns
The Outlander series is a history lesson and love story. The characters face adversity with such strong conviction of over coming the strife of daily life in the 1700’s. Survival of the fittest was never more prevalent and yet they manage to live, and thrive in very precarious times. Disease, wild animals, scoundrels, native Americans are constantly crossing their paths. The family unit is central to these folks. Extended family they bond with makes them stronger. I am so pleasantly surprised and admire the amazing acting skills of this cast! I’m looking forward to the next season. Well done and thank you all for such an amazing season again! Deborah McDonald NY
enily m - Outlander
I can’t say enough about this series. It’s undoubtedly the best story I’ve ever seen and the books are equally as good. Diana Galbaldon is brilliant and I can’t put the books down.. I’ve probably watched the series ten times at least and see something I’ve missed each time I watch it. The love story is beautiful and Jamie and Claire do a wonderful job of making it so , very, very real. I’m at series number five now and I can’t wait for Sunday to get here I wish it would neyver end. Thanks so much for the outstanding job you’ve all done. It should certainly win all kinds of awards.
Tara MT - Cannot access app content
I cannot seem to log in. I signed up for the free trial, but when I went to log in I got a warning about a token. Since I figured I would want to watch outlander anyways, I went ahead and signed up for 1 month thinking it was an issue with the trial. It still didn’t work. When I tried to say change password, it said that it doesn’t recognize my email address, but I cannot get to the screen to set up a new account. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app, cancelled and reapplied the subscription and basically tried everything I can think of the clear up this glitch. I recently downloaded the new iOS, so I don’t know if that could be the issue... anyways, if this can’t be cleared up I hope I will be refunded as I have not benefited from this service at all.
playa_mar_cielo - I love Starz
I purchased the app to watch American Gods, which I love! I've now discovered other original shows by Starz, like the pirate drama Black Sails, that I'm looking forward to getting into. White Queen is next with a little trip down Memory Lane in the form of Good Times and Sanford and Son after that. Did you know they have vintage TV shows on this app? They do.
The app itself is easy to use with a beautiful and intuitive user interface. Their equivalent of the hourglass and spinning rainbow disc is a lovely and neat little graphic.
Okay, back to Black Sails. Starz, what do you think about adding Chico and the Man?
Pisces0828 - Buffers too much
My main grip with this app is navigating - when I go to the Resume Menu for instance and I want to watch Outlander Blade may cover a quarter of the Outlander box when I click on Outlander I get Blade also there are no pictures of the show in the boxes so I go to the Series Menu where there are also no pictures but no double boxes. The app buffers a lot. - I always have my phone or iPad at my side to pass the time when I start the app when I go to a movie when I start a movie because anytime you go to another it buffers.I have three other streaming services they do buffer when you first go into it but it’s for two or seconds this app can really stand some improvements - I don’t plan on keeping it for a long period of time
sandra946 - Advertisements despite paying ??!
Before Starz, I had Netflix. It loaded quickly and each episode started immediately, plus you could jump to the next episode by the end of the previous one.
Watching Outlander now with starz can be rather annoying. Each episode starts with an advertisement of a movie,... loading takes quite a while and after every episode you have to go back two pages and look for the next episode to click on, instead of being played smoothly after the other. I don’t like paying for watching a movie and having to listen and watch the same advertisement over and over again .. fix that please as well as offering the next episode at the end ... would only make sense . Take Netflix as an example...
Jaidhe - Terrible first experience
I just downloaded the STARZ app on my phone so I could activate the app on my Samsung TV. Tried to play an episode on my TV. It took forever to load, then started playing without a picture, The picture showed up for a second before promptly booting me out. I rebooted my TV as instructed on Samsung help, but continued to have the same problem. Tried to download the app on my iPad and when I opened the app it says “stream overload, four devices at one time is the max. please stop playback on an active device and try again.” I only have the app on the TV, my phone, and now the iPad. That is three devices. None of which are playing anything! Very frustrating. I was excited to start watching my series tonight. Thank goodness it’s a free trial. I will not waste my money on this app.

sassenach traveler - Love Outlander
I own and have the books since I bought the first one at a 7-11 in the late eighties. The books transport one to a beautiful love story with an entirely engaging plot. When I learned of the series on STARZ I eagerly anticipated each season. Though some details are changed ( Mistress Abernathy/ Geillis was a fat momma on the island in the book) most of my favorite scenes are spot on. I am a Visual Art Specialist/ artist and the visuals ( scenery , costumes, sets) are stunningly beautiful in each episode. I applaud the work especially of the actors who bring Claire and Jamie to life. Kudos to you all . So when will Season Four air, please?
DB reader - Problems connecting
Today I went to use the app and it wanted me to sign into my cable provider AGAIN! I entered the information and it came back to the same screen... to login with cable provider. I separately (on safari) logged into my cable provider to verify my password and my account being up to date. It was all okay but the STARZ app is not accepting this anymore so I can’t gain access. I’ve enjoyed this app for years now and disappointed that with every update I have to login again and frequently have problems.
SCoutour - Won’t play Power!
I got this app because I wanted to watch the new season of power but for some reason it won’t play the series on my 2016 model Samsung smart tv! That was the whole reason for paying for this app and I can’t even use it for what I needed it for. It actually played the series 2 times but now it just won’t load at all plus it’s extremely slow on this tv as well. I can actually watch the other series on the app but power and other series just won’t play. It’s so annoying! I don’t know if the app works properly with this particular tv or what because it seems to work with my kids newer model Samsung TVs and they don’t even have the app selection on my 2016 model Vizo tv at all. So for me it’s just a waste of money because I can’t even watch it
Matty4224 - Excellent Content, Horrible Functionality
As I mainly get to watch videos during my commute - with spotty wifi- I tend to download videos before watching them. Although the app would seem to have this feature, it is completely useless. Nine times out of ten, a downloaded video won’t play, even if you have wifi. At all. Won’t even start. And if it ever does start, it’s so touchy that if your device switches to a new wifi area, or you need to pause and leave the app for a minute, it will cut off and not start.
This has been an ongoing issue for literally years. I tried and gave up on the app 2-3 years ago. I tried again now because I really wanted to watch a few shows, but life is too short.
I want my tabs - It won't let me play DOWNLOADED episodes?!
It won't let me play DOWNLOADED episodes?! I was using it earlier today and watched two episodes just fine, but when I went to watch a third all I get is a black screen. And that's AFTER having to weirdly navigate through the app. I initially just went to click on the episode but it had a notification that I was using data to stream it even though I KNOW I have it downloaded. I had to go to the show, click on the episode, and THEN click downloaded because if I just hit play then it says it uses data. After clicking on downloaded it takes me to all the downloaded episodes and I then have to click on the episode again and then it DOESN'T PLAY THE EPISODE. This is the worst designed streaming app I've ever used.
AngCor20 - Awful App
First off, the app has not been saving my progress when I watch shows. It resets itself and does not even show up under “continue watching”. I then have to try to remember what episode I was on and where I was at. Very frustrating to say the least. Next, the app doesn’t even work half the time. It logs me out and when I try to log back in a box pops up that says “error forbidden”. Like what does that even mean? And when I try to use my internet browser to log in, it tells me multiple times my subscription needs renewed and it sure doesn’t. I have to hit log in repeatedly for it to log me in. Once it does I can’t even watch anything because it redirects me back to the app which is just a black screen. Terrible. Absolutely hate this app.
chiptimber - App Issues
The episodes don’t automatically play after another like a Netflix which wouldn’t be a bother but, the app doesn’t accurately keep track of where you left off and where you need to pick up. It has some episode showing as fully viewers, some episodes half viewed and it never leaves me on the right episode. I have to guess on where I’m at if I don’t pay attention. Maybe it’s because I’m casting from my phone to my TV but still it should be able to keep up and accurately save where I left off. Very irritating. I wish they would fix that and I’d probably keep the app. Only downloaded the app to watch Outlander. Best show ever.
Your average writer - Everything is perfect!
I logged in with ease and so far I’ve had no issue watching or finding the shows I want to watch. It is easy to pick and choose which episode of Outlander I want to watch and it’s easy to navigate through the app. I also love that I can choose to skip 10 secs ahead rather than just manually skipping through the episode. It lets me skip the intro and recap easily and it doesn’t take me forever to see the actual show. I haven’t had a single ad or anything and I’m really happy with the app as a whole.
MD Miller - Almost a great app
I enjoy using the app, especially on Apple TV, but I do have one minor issue with it. I don’t understand why before every program I want to watch I have to skip an ad for another program on Starz. I’m already on the app and I know how to browse and find programs and the extra step of skipping an ad is just annoying. It’s a minor issue, I know, but ads of any kind annoy me which is why I use apps like this in the first place. Please consider removing this pointless waste of time. Starz is the service I use the most anyway so there’s no need to show me ads for other stuff.
lodilly - My review
Power is the bomb even tho I feel they have ghosts tangled up in too much to come out of this mess that’s created , every single person on the show has beef against him the girl from the beginning. Tate , taressi. Stein tommy low key Angela Tasha Silva Jason Dre. It’s to unbelievable. Something has to give faithful watchers will get frustrated I did. But ! on the flip 50 is a genius he has many talents! and has a hand in other things continued blessings to him I’m very proud of him. Yahweh bless and keep you Mr Curtis Jackson.
P.s I would like to see tryeek end up being his son on the show.
Grayling Hunter - App is buggy
Starz has been a good addition to our streaming services but the app is not up to speed. For the movies it’s fine but if you are watching a series the app will not let you do several things. Fast forwarding through the intro is almost impossible. I don’t mind watching the intro a few times but not for every episode. There has been several times I have come back to a show only to have it start from the beginning even though I was half way through the episode. Buffering seems to be an issue even with my robust connection. This app might be a deal breaker when I make the choice of keep or dump Starz.
That s*** Kraynik - Needs a lot of work :/
I like STARZ but this app is so far behind all the other streaming apps. It’s slow, episode and movie downloads are slow and fail most of the time unless the app is open. App freezes way too often, doesn’t remember where episode or movie last left off and will restart a lot, fast-forward function is glitchy and ten second fast-forward is very slow. When you watch a downloaded episode without WiFi it still has a lot of trouble just playing the video. It just feels like there are so many bugs despite the updates. Only works well if you watch an episode all the way through in one sitting and on moderately fast wifi.
wolves1619 - Terrible and no help at all
I subscribed to this because of the wide variety of movies and shows. But i cant watch any of them. On my roku it is always buffering. On my phone I can only watch if I am not connected to wifi. Forget downloading movies because it never works. I called and emailed at least three times. The first I uninstalled, checked wifi speed, and logged in again which is what i was told to do. It changed nothing at all. The next two times I tried to reach out I was completely ignored. When I went to cancel they offered me three months for .99 a month only to never change the billing. I am done. I dont usually write reviews but this is so terrible I had. Thank you for 8 movies I got to watch and the 10 episodes of Luther.
Glo0421 - Cannot open the application
I subscribed to STARZ application like a week ago because they offered some tv series that I am interested in.
The problem that I have is that I have been unable to open the application on my iPad and is an aggravation because I watch all my movie on it. I have to watch my programs on my phone to be able to see them. Unacceptable!!!! My iPad is the latest version and is up to date. Stated that I don´t have internet connection which I do have. I sent an email to the company and it seems like they don’t care about my issue.
As soon as I finished watching what I want will be cancelling the subscription. 🤬
Rosebandanas - Outlander
I am a reader of the books first and have loved Starz and Ron Moore’s production of Outlander. Every episode of every season to date has been marvelous. The characters, places, events have been brought to the screen in such a wonderful manner. The actors, creators, designers, and all those involved in bringing Outlander to life have exceeded all my expectations. Great job everyone, I love you all for your hard work. There is nothing better and I appreciate how you have all worked to bring my favorite books to life on my tv. Thank you Starz!
honestjane08 - Huge disappointment
I have awful internet where I live so I subscribed to their monthly app, downloaded it and then went somewhere with good free WiFi to download episodes of the shows I want to watch and they are not working at all! I can stream the episodes (while I was still at the coffee shop) but when I try to watch the downloaded episodes they just sit there and do nothing the play button doesn’t do anything and the screen just goes back from inactivity I’ve reached out to STARZ via email and twitter and have gotten no reply. Really irritated the app doesn’t do what they say. I am running the latest software on my iPhone 6+ and the latest update of the app as well. I have plenty of storage on my phone as well. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!!!!!!!
airtravel2018 - Cannot watch downloads offline
EDIT: This issue is fixed now. 5 stars.
My main intended use of the app is to download shows to watch on flights. When it shows my list of downloads the app interrupts itself to show me the “hey there’s no network” message. If I click really quickly I can get my show to start but then the full screen pop up comes a split second later and no more show.
Fix the network notification; if I can watch downloads offline the one star will go up.
1070HVM - Took some getting used to.
On episodes that have been downloaded there frequently is short periods of blurryness. Sometimes it's not all over the whole screen at one time. I think I like the former way the videos were placed on the page. I watch a lot on my iPad and if I happen to interrupt the show by hitting the home button it will not let me go back to my saved episodes I have to watch on a simultaneous download and viewing which can be slowed when others are using band width.
Lescoats - Great Shows. Terrible App.
Starz shows are fantastic. I love Black Sails and Outlander. But the app is terrible. It works okay if I’m streaming over LTE, but it will not consistently connect to Google Chromecast. Sometimes it will connect and a show or movie will play, but then it glitches. The show will keep playing on the television but the app freezes. I’m still not sure how this works because sometimes it will continue to play after I’ve closed all my apps. This may not seem like a problem except there is no way to pause or rewind a show once this has happened. It also won’t download shows. The percentage complete will go to 99% then jump back down to a much lower completion % over and over.
Disappointed Outlander Fan - Good luck using your free trial
Was excited to try the Starz App to watch the new season of Outlander, but taking advantage of my 7-day Free Trial has been frustrating. I entered an email and attempted to create a password, but when I tried to submit this information nothing happened. Now, when I bring up the App it asks if I want to login or start a free trial. When I click on free trial it says that there is a problem with my account and I need to login. However, I don't have login credentials so I can't access the app at all. I sent the notification that I received from starz confirming my free trial to their Help Desk but received only an automated reply with instructions on how to cancel my trial. I wrote back to them yesterday asking for help but have yet to receive a response.
Chilly Consad - Loved the app, but sign in issues with latest update.
Version 3.10.1 introduces mandatory email attribution to sign in. I don’t like it, but fine. Next step seems to be prioritized for stand alone accounts, ok. I have service through Verizon FiOS, so I’m attempting to use those credentials. Unfortunately, login fails on iPad Pro and iPhone XS Max at verification. Confirmed with two separate FiOS accounts. All was fine yesterday before the update. I hope this gets sorted out soon. Aside from other occasional login problems that are usually resolved by deleting and reinstalling the app and the time out issue raised in other reviews, the STARZ app is solid. I’ll give it 4 stars when login bugs are worked out.
equirox - Problems after Changing Apple ID email
I set up a subscription with starz and love the app! Unfortunately I had to change my Apple ID email and the app doesn’t recognize me anymore. I tried to restore my purchase through iTunes several times and I keep getting a message that my account isn’t valid. I contacted apple and starz because I’m not sure who needs to fix what. I’m currently still waiting to hear back from both. It seems like it should be a simple fix but it’s taking a long time. This is frustrating when you use it every day.
thurstons kid - Very good app for the iPhone but terrible on my TV
I subscribe to stars and have been able to watch it on my phone on my little screen but have been very unhappy watching it on my television. Very slow in downloading and now also wishes for me to upgrade on my TV and won’t allow me to watch anymore Of the series on my TV. 30 minute wait time at least when I had to set it up to receive it on my TV where I’m already paying for it. Too much hassle. I’ll finish my series and cancel my account.
phil5-0 - Problems with STARZ please read
I have used STARZ for 10 years it’s been good up until now. Since that time, I’ve had multiple problems as my subscription is through Direct TV. In each case I have selected my provider and now have to reregister all over again, plus I’ve lost my profile. I have contacted STARZ tech support via phone call and email sent pictures of the problem waiting to have it fixed. I told STARZ if the issue isn’t fixed I’ll contact Direct TV and cancel. It’s very frustrating.
Sal 37506472 - Terrible app
No issues with the content, but the app is terrible and frustrating to use on iPhone and iPad. You cannot fast forward using the the scroll bar, the video will freeze. When you hit play button, it will resume from where you were before. I’ve seen the developer responded to this issue in previous posts( last year) , but it still has not been fixed. Another issue I have Is there is no preview when scrolling forward or back, minor inconvenience, but would love to have it. For unknown reasons, the app freezes before starting to play the video, forcing you to restart and rewatch the ads!
Again, no issues with content- I highly recommend Black Sails, Power, Outlander and Vida great shows!
Joelle12 - Worst app ever!!!
Can’t trust this app. Last night I downloaded several episodes of the series Power because I knew I would be flying for over 3 hours. Once in the air I tried to access my downloads to no avail. The episodes would simply not play. Got to the hotel and tried to log in the app. Received the message “error - login failed”.
Talk about a frustrating experience. I was told Starz does not play in hotels. Hmmmm.... does not play in the air either?
I never had this problem with my Netflix downloads.
Chrstig - Outlander series
Please continue to bring Outlander I have been enjoying the past seasons and looking forward to season 4 and will be thrilled to see the entire series of Diana Gabaldons books brought to Starz. The Outlander series was my reason for subscribing to Starz originally I will continue for future seasons I want to see the entire story if Jamie and Claire lives with the promise of book 9 & 10 we have a long way to go. I re-read the books and re-watch each season. This is Entertainment at it's finest!!
dmbd55 - I’ve given up on this app
I am beyond frustrated with this app. It began with the play button not working when I’d click so I would exit the app and reopen it for it to finally allow me to play the show. Then there were times the app crashed and took me to my home screen. There was a brief moment I was able to navigate through the app and watch my shows. However, now every time I open the app I have to login with my tv provider. Then once I think I’ve been logged in and I go to push play, the button suddenly doesn’t work. I then exit the app, open it again only to be asked to login in again and it’s the same process over and over again. The app is absolutely useless to me at this point.
Burt Jenkins - Always crashing
Love that I get to see some of my favorite movies and interesting shows on here- but... seems like 80% of the time I’m having to close out and restart the app just so I can hit play again.
Also it’d be nice to have my movie play where I last left off, instead of having to start from beginning and scroll to where I was.
Was going to tolerate it. Rarely write reviews, but it’s too much now. Also sometimes when I download a movie it just doesn’t play. I have to delete and redownload. Another option that would be nice to have is playing stuff offline. I know it has that feature but again. Crash. Crashes crashes crashes.
Jhoda12 - I am paying for this and can’t watch anything!!
I like the app, but it was a pain every time I launched the app it asked for email, accept terms and conditions and enter name and avatar.
I did all that 1000 and at least I was able to see my content.
Now it logged me out, can’t re sign in with tv provider because it just closes the view and nothing happens, So now I’m paying for a service that I can’t use, very frustrating!!
I hate to give bad reviews, but there isn’t a customer support link anywhere in the app that I can use to directly reach out, so I hope someone reaches out to me and help me figure out how to have access to the content I’m paying for.
CoCo Levison - Never trust people you didn’t t grow up with
When I tell you this episode was a great episode. Keep them coming unbelievable. Tommy starting loving his father all the way to the end of his life. Tommy mom was right. Proctor, I don't know about him. Outstanding kept me on my seat all night long. The last two episodes made me cry. Sad but good. See Kanan loved Tyric thats why he did nit kill him. Trying to teach him loyalty. We will see what the future holds for the family will they remain loyal to each other or turn.
blueoysterdvp - WON’T LET ME LOGIN : UPDATE!
Used to be a great app. Has a glitch right now. Got logged out either through an update or some other reason. When choosing TV PROVIDERS the square in the middle just spins and then stops with NO TV PROVIDERS TO CHOOSE FROM. I’ve been a STARZ customer for YEARS. I’m sure this will work out and then I’ll give it the 5 stars it USED TO BE. Since I can’t get ANYTHING ON THE APP it should really be 0 STARZ. I haven’t tried the app on my Apple TV Yet.
WORKS AGAIN! Quirky app now. NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH IT BEFORE. Gets its 5 STARZ BACK! Still have to check the Apple TV app.
bæ.05 - PLZ READ IF YOU WANT TO CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION
hey y’all so at first I was really stressed and upset bc I couldn’t cancel my subscription!!
so on the app I went to settings and the hit “contact us”. Then, I typed “how do you cancel your subscription” in the space provided and after that I hit the submit button. Later, I logged into the email that I used to sign up for starz and I saw that I got an email from them. It turned out that the email was them replying to what I submitted earlier. The email gave me all the steps on how to cancel my subscription. So I recommend that if you are in the same boat that I was in that you contact them or even call them if you need. I hope that this helped anyone that was having trouble with canceling their account:))
Liz1yaeger - Does the job
The app doesn’t offer as much as Netflix or Hulu’s apps but it gets the job done and what can you do until the makers adjust. Seems to buffer some on less than super fast internet and it crashed the app on my outdated iPad once but started back up and played as normal. STARZ seems to have a great selection, and had some of the series that I wanted to watch, hence, why I got a subscription. Overall I’m fairly happy but would love the app to get things like episode searching while a series is open and a little better user friendliness.
Belari15 - App isn’t working properly.
I’ve used the starz app for about two years or so now and I have no complaints: the movie options are awesome and the t.v shows...well let’s just say my wife had to bring me back to reality when I kept talking about the shows I’ve watched and she knew nothing about. But currently The app is only playing the starz commercials and not the shows or movies when I click on them.
It keeps saying “error” or “ operation could not be completed”.
ChelliSage - Playlist should play what’s on it
Great app, sketchy promotional viewing algorithm. When I pick a movie from my playlist, or even randomly, it would be great if the next movie was chosen from that playlist, or at least a movie genre that I watch most. Currently it sometimes picks movies, or series and shows that i would not want to see, ever. This is especially important for kids’ playlists and profiles. The algorithm is showing kid’s profiles content that is not appropriate for all kids, even if the movie snuck by with pg13 it doesn’t mean it’s appropriate.
Böhme417 - Fix login issues!
I have the same login issues I’ve had for several versions of the app. The first one is that I’m constantly being asked to sign in. Why can’t the app stay logged in? Second, it’s a mess trying to log in. It always tells me that my provider doesn’t offer Starz or something like that, which is nonsense; I’m subscribed through directv. I have to repeatedly try to log in with my directv credentials until it finally decides to work. Then we get to repeat the whole process over again the next time I open the app and it has logged me out. Why is this so difficult?
11rat - Fix the app omg!!!!
Do you love waiting 10 minutes for something to load and then fiddling around to fix the constant glitches every single time you reopen the app or pause the movie? Yes? Then this will be the perfect app for you :)
And uh yeah my wifi clocks at 12 mbps, perfectly fine, so don’t blame it on that plz :))) yeah no the app is just plenty glitchy! Doesn’t play the first time you click—have to click in and out to get it to start. If you pause for a while or click out to use a different app, you have to wait or sometimes restart the app to continue. If you finish a video it will not register as finished (or even accurately remember where you left off). so don’t play y’all know it’s nice and glitchy!
Kadedraann94 - Bad customer service
The movies are fun and fresh. However, the customer service people are rude and the free trail service is a scam. They’re gonna charge you rather or not you cancel on time or not. If you’re looking to just try it out and not spend any money, don’t. I signed up for the free trail, canceled in a timely manner, and was still charged for the month. Unfortunately, my cancellation only took affect after my trail ended and after the money was taken from my account.
Refunds are not available so it just seems like a way to steal from people while offering subpar movies.
Don’t waste your time.
RogueFalcon123 - Wouldn’t use this app if it was FREE
Starz app on any device is so bad I would compare to the work of a beta test that was published and never changed or fixed or updated in any way. Every developer should be fired for this piece of trash work. Crashes constantly. Won’t load video most of the time even on 250mb/s which I’m currently running. Who cares what shows you have when you can’t watch them. Pathetic. No live fast forward or rewind. Doesn’t save where you last watched so you have to figure out which episode you’re on and what part you watched last. You should sell your company to someone who can actually provide a quality streaming service. A child could create a better streaming app.
Rrowz - Worst Customer Service Possible
I couldn’t get logged into my Starz account so I tried calling but the wait time was in excess of 20 minutes so I sent an email. This is the list of things they want me answer:
Is this the email address you registered with?
Are you within the US?
Are you using a VPN or Proxy?
Are you using a public Wi-Fi/hotspot?
What device are you using (including make and model)?
Or if you are using a computer, what browsers have you tried?
If you are using a computer, phone, or tablet what operating system is on your device?
If you are on a phone, tablet, or TV connected device have you, logged out of the app, deleted it, rebooted, reinstalled, and tried again (in that order)?
If you are on a computer have you cleared out your cookies and cache and tried a different browser?
Can you provide us with the exact language of the error message or a screenshot of the problem?
Would you please run a speed test from the affected device and send us the results?
Are they kidding? My subscription would expire before I got all that done.
ashdubs02 - Closed Caption Issue
I’ve never left a review before but this was the only way I could think of fixing the closed caption issue that’s happening on my iPad (standard size from 2017). I think your app is great generally, but unfortunately the English audio captions for your shows cuts out after about 15 seconds, and for some reason are not easy to turn on on my Samsung Smart TV. I’ve tried deleting and reloading the app but the issue still persists. Not sure if I’m the only one but just in case I’m not, there you have it! Thanks.
Edgaromero - Needs improvement
This review is for the app itself and not necessarily Starz the company per say. What I mean is the way the app work for us the consumers, my biggest problem with the app is the non existent search bar, if there’s a show or movie you know they have, you can’t just search it by name, but rather you have to find it under the right section.
Second thing is while watching a series with multiple episodes, every time a episode ends you have to go back to the main menu search for the show and select manually the next episode. Very frustrating.
ᴡᴏʟғ - Great App.
So I realized that I had this app on my tablet, I signed up, got the subscription and was totally blown away. This app is great. My main reason I love it is that it’s super easy to use and FREE movies that aren’t even on Netflix! (At least I don’t think they’re on Netflix) but the only troubles I had were it was kind of funky signing up and I can’t pause/play when I connect to the T.V. Although it might just be me. Other that that though, is app is fabulous! I highly recommend getting this app!
Bo704 - Great on the Go
I work in overnight security so having an app where I can watch movies and original series is great during down times. There is usually a larger enough selection that I can find new and interesting content daily. The reason I downloaded the app was because I cancelled cable to go with internet streaming services but still wanted to watch power the original series which I love. Power is is the real reason i stick with STARZ and haven’t jumped to Netflix.
57 and crazy about it! - Power
I have loved Power from season 1! It has everything that keeps me wanting more. I live with my son now due to medical reasons and he doesn't subscribe to any premium channels. I was so disappointed thinking I was going to miss this season:(
But then today I discovered the STARZ app and I immediately started watching this season and did not stop until I saw every episode I had missed! I love it and again I can't wait to see what happens next, even if it's only on my iPhone screen:).
Eatravis - App is alright for streaming but could be improved
We don’t have cable and use several devices and apps for streaming. This is my least favorite compared to more popular streaming apps. It’s slow to load and not well organized. Also frequently loses my place if I have to stop watching and come back to it. They have a special so are trying to get a bigger viewing audience via streaming but don’t seem to have streamlined their app for this.
OldSchoolNewSchool2017 - It's all about Power
I enjoy the STARZ app mainly because of the series Power. It's an excellently written show. Last weeks episode left me feeling they'd lost their way and ran out of scenarios. But this week the three brothers are back together, Tariq is officially a G now, the slug from Ray Ray's wall will match FBI forensics that was done on Tascha's gun when they ran it for the Greg Knox murder and Tommy's family is about to be onboard and part of the show. It's went from the first bland episode to one of the most significant. Awesome show guys keep it going!!!
V8zspeed - Downloads need work
I live in an area with limited internet. I thought this would be great as i can download the content and watch later as can’t stream. Easier said than done. If there Any interruption in the download, it restarts from the beginning So downloading is very frustrating. Why can’t the downloads work similar to P2P where they are small packets and combined at the end. So if one fails or the connection gets interrupted you pick up where it left off. Especially on a service where you get limited data. You waste data on failed downloads.
Once you get the file even on medium quality the video is good.
meeplot - Good content, awful app
App crashes constantly and every. single. time you reopen you have to watch the same previews before you’re able to access your chosen show. Doesn’t save your progress either. I’ve watched the opening of outlander four times in the past half hour and this is common. Scared to move forward to where I left off cuz it buffers forever and then crashes again so there’s no point. If you restart your device it doesn’t clear your old stream and tells you you’re streaming too many devices at once. Too bad this is the only way to get new outlander cuz I would NEVER use it otherwise. Garbage.

Am I doing well financially if I didn’t notice Amazon was taking $10 a month all year for STARZ of all things? Here I was thinking it was free this whole time
