| 09 November 2018

The STARZPLAY premium streaming service is to arrive on the UK’s cable TV provider, Virgin Media.

STARZPLAY offers access to a library of content including popular series such as Vida, Sweetbitter, The White Princess and Mr. Mercedes as well as a film library featuring favourites such as The Hunger Games. The addition will also give Virgin TV customers the opportunity to watch content from STARZ all in one place, in particular existing series with future STARZ Originals launching exclusively on STARZPLAY on the same day as the US, including season two of Counterpart starring Academy Award-winner J K Simmons.

“The partnership with Virgin Media is an exciting next step in the rollout of the STARZPLAY platform, expanding the audience for our wide range of STARZ Originals, TV series and movies exclusively available on STARZPLAY to a whole new and expansive customer base,” said Starz CEO and president Chris Albrecht.

Added Virgin Media chief digital entertainment officer David Bouchier: “The launch of STARZPLAY on Virgin TV will give our customers access to even more brilliant box-sets, amazing movies and gripping TV series such as The White Princess and Mr. Mercedes. This exciting addition to our platform means Virgin TV customers will be able to enjoy new STARZ content as it launches in the US.”
