We have had a long and fruitful relationship with Starz Media acquiring movies, series ('Onion News Network,' 'Martin Lawrence Presents 1st Amendment Stand-Up'), documentaries ('Starz Inside series'), and specials ('Independent Spirit Awards'), and we are very pleased to bring even more movies and this top series to our subscribers."
