Beverly Hills, Calif. - Feb. 7, 2017 -- Starz announced the successful launch of its STARZ and STARZ ENCORE services on the AT&T streaming service, DIRECTV NOW. Priced at only $8/month, STARZ on DIRECTV NOW provides subscribers with access to the largest premium pay TV television and movie library*.

"With today's launch on DIRECTV NOW, Starz is continuing to extend the reach of its flagship STARZ products in the marketplace. The DIRECTV NOW offering is a terrific service for our collection of STARZ Originals and quality feature film programming, which has proven to be very successful for the unmatched quality at an affordable price point," said Jeffrey Hirsch, Chief Operating Officer at Starz. "With DIRECTV NOW, AT&T is opening up barriers to entry that prevented a wide swath of audience from accessing our groundbreaking slate of originals and we are thrilled to work with them."

"With the addition of STARZ, we're continuing to broaden the appeal of DIRECTV NOW, creating an unmatched entertainment experience," said Dan York, chief content officer for AT&T.

STARZ ENCORE in DIRECTV Now's "Gotta Have It" package features streaming of all 8 STARZ ENCORE premium channels in addition to the STARZ ENCORE ON DEMAND offerings.
