With a record-breaking box office and huge fanfare, Starz Entertainment’s Starz: The Complete Movie Collection is finally getting an official release on Blu-ray and DVD.
The streaming service launched Starz, the first and only standalone, subscription service in the U.S. with a focus on family entertainment, on January 1.
Since then, the service has seen its subscriber base explode, with Starz TV now being available for a third of the U:$7.99 monthly fee.
Starz Entertainment is also one of the first subscription services to offer over-the-top (OTT) streaming.
With the launch of Starz’s OTT service, the company was able to provide over-time access to all of its movies, plus the most popular shows from the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and HBO GO.
Starz also made an offer to stream the Starz Originals series on the platform.
That means you can now watch any Starz Original movie with no subscription fee, including the first five episodes of Star Z, Star Z: Origins, and Star Z Supernova.
All in all, it was a good time to be a Starz subscriber.
Despite its growing subscriber base, the subscriber numbers haven’t been as strong as Starz had hoped.
Although Starz has now added a third show, StarZ: Origins and the upcoming Star Z franchise, the overall subscriber numbers are still down significantly from the launch.
However, it’s not all bad news for Starz.
While the company has been seeing some tough times lately, its subscriber growth has continued to accelerate.
Starz is now one of few streaming services that have an OTT offering.
In 2017, Starzz had 5 million subscribers and is now estimated to have about 10 million subscribers.
Starza Entertainment, a streaming media startup, is another Starz success story.
It offers Starz content, but it has been able to maintain its subscriber numbers thanks to its subscription-based model.
On its website, Starza said it currently has more than 6 million subscribers, with more than 10 million paying subscribers.
Unlike other streaming services, Starzi has also managed to retain its audience over time, as it has continued its subscription model.
The company has maintained its subscriber number of 10 million, while StarzTV has seen a subscriber growth of 10% since its launch.
In 2017 alone, Starzone had 1,500,000 subscribers, and had just over 500,000 paying subscribers at the time of its first quarter.
