App is horrible, playback is always getting interrupted 1/5
Playback is stopping in the middle of the show despite the high internet speed. Actually it just stopped right now, and that’s why I’m here writing this review! Waiting … still waiting … still waiting ..
Canceling my subscription.
Some kinks 3/5
By Ibn Fulaan
It’d be nice if streaming apps would get on the same page. STARZ is on of the lesser streaming apps. I have more stoppages and things take longer to load on STARZ than other streaming apps. Also, when transferring from Wi-Fi to cellular it completely stops while others will continue. Other than that I suppose it’s fine.
No skip feature 3/5
By Love bomb
No skip feature, and there’s not a lot to choose from on their movie list. Also, like HBO Max, there’s a lot of lagging with this app.
Cannot log in! 1/5
It is utterly ridiculous, that with the latest update, I am no longer able to log in with my usual TV provider, DirecTv. HBO, and all other Cable channels's apps, I have no problem with.
App won’t go past Adobe screen 1/5
Tried updating, tried downgrading. I try to sign in Through Verizon Fios Tv provider, and the app gets stuck on the Adobe screen. No matter how many times I refresh, I get nothing
Best show I’ve ever seen 5/5
I have rewatched this tv show more that 10 times. I find new things I love about it each time. I can’t get enough of the love and the hardships and the overcoming!. I’ve never in my life time have seen anything better than this. I’m completely In love with and connected with the cast. This is a must see and rewatch This will always be my tv show!.
Best ever 5/5
I love stars all the ethnic shows as long as American movies it’s what’s up now
Good shows, bad app. 2/5
I’m quite shocked that 2021 is here and this app is still so god awful. Some of the shows they have are absolutely stellar, but the whole functionality of the app just kills it for me. On my iPhone, the app likes to forget where I left off, leaving me to scroll through and find my place. (Or sometimes browse through episodes because it doesn’t even remember what episode I left off on.) Scrolling, fast forwarding, and rewinding are also simple, yet difficult things to do because this app is garbage. Once an episode ends, it stops and doesn’t auto-play if I’m watching it while using other apps. You pay monthly for it yet you’re forced to watch ads before your content comes on.
I also find it very strange that the app on iPhones only ever wants you to watch while connected to wifi, cause if you’re not then it’ll warn you that watching while using data might give you an extra charge on your phone bill. Super strange that this notification pops up every time I watch a show on my phone. When I first watched stars on my smart tv, it took me a hot minute to just figure out how to pause my show, cause pressing pause on my remote won’t pause it. You actually have to use the down button on the remote to go to the subtitle settings for the show to pause, which is so annoying. There’s also no option to skip the intros either, which is really just me being selfish, but honestly this app is so bad I might as well add that in there too. My two star rating is purely because some of the content is pretty good and some of my favorite shows are on Stars, but that’s honestly the only thing keeping it at that rating. Not worth the money to me.
Has a lot of potential 4/5
There should be a better movie selection like hbo max!!! There should be a movie premiere that shows in the theaters big screen and stars at the same release date like hbo max!! Has so much potential!! Also needs a sports section!!! Also needs documentaries
Content is amazing app is horrible? 3/5
I’m under 40 so I watch everything on my phone through the app. I will watch a show on the STARZ app; I’m 15-minutes into an episode. Then I will have to pause it just to check something really quick. If I stay paused too long it totally clears the show out. When I’m done with what I’m doing and go back to the app—- I’ve been put back at the stars main page.🙄 Shockingly - there is NO quick access thumbnails of my recently viewed shows listed on the main page. So I have to scroll and search for my show again. Once I click on it. It starts the entire show episode over 🥴😳🙄sooooo I think.🥱 It’s actually playing the PREVIOUS episode i watched and it’s starting it from the beginning!!!😳😳. Like even Before the previews/ advertisements. Then it starts playing and in order to get to the next episode you have to fast forward all the way through that episode. the app makes the entire experience very unappealing to go back to watch a show when it puts you back At The beginning previous episode? It’s like why even bother. I quit my trial. Any company who this innovative and progressive in the content it provides but doesn’t bother putting any effort into the manner in which the content is delivered because they assume(Wrongly) that most are watching this on TV when the fact of the matter is statistically most Americans are watching this on the telephone. Therefore the app working is vital. Netflix knows that, HBO knows that, and so should STARZ.
By sean palacios
Okay so I read that they had all Spider Man films and I am a huge fan of the Garfield movies and I don’t like how you guys singled out the Amazing Spider Man 2 I think if I’m paying you money per month to see all the films that you should include every film especially the Amazing spider man 2 come on guys peacocks gonna top you
Keep your eye on your account 1/5
I canceled my subscription with them and they told me they would give me the app for three dollars a month for six months so I agreed to that on the six month instead of canceling it or notifying or anything like that they charging my account full price which I never agreed for them to take full price out of my account. keep your eye on these guys. Not to mention there one good show is not enough to keep this app I would’ve gave you five stars but not when you steal from me if I can give you a zero you would have it
Yes love ! 5/5
Excellent to music entertainment as actor’sDefiantly thee best
downloading to 10 hrs to Vac trip Maui worth my special 6 month for 25! Thanks again
IOS Compatibility 1/5
My iPhone 6 runs IOS 12. When I subscribed to Starz the app ran fine on my phone. Now the app has automatically updated and requires IOS 14, which my phone doesn’t support. The Starz site still states that it supports IOS 10. Do I have to now cancel my subscription?
Does not work with USB DAC 1/5
I have a Sybasonic USB DAC that outputs to headphones. It works with the Lossless Apple Music Codec, 44.1kHz, 48kHz, and 96kHz, up to 24 bit. It works with whatever Youtube puts out. However, with the Starz app, shows won’t play with the USB DAC plugged in :( . The 30 second advertisement before the show plays just fine, but Starz refuses to play the show or film. If I start Starz with the USB DAC unplugged, the show plays. As soon as I plug in the DAC, the show stops playing. So I have to change to bluetooth just to watch Starz :( . I hope they fix this soon.
Great shows 5/5
Autoplay ruins the experience 4/5
I really like the content on STARZ but the app on the TV platforms (Roku, Apple) is very annoying. There is supposed to be an option in settings to turn off the auto play feature but it doesn’t and continues to force feed movies at random. I want to watch what I have chosen and added to my list, not what STARZ chooses for me. Please fix the app so that the feature can be turned off. The option to turn off the tracking cookies is also buried in settings. I subscribed to this service for a year because there was a price break. The content is really good but I don’t watch much because of the autoplay.
Somewhat a happy customer 4/5
I wish i can fast forward the previews from when i initially pick a film. Be like hbomax!
Shows are okay at best. One star because $0.99 for 3 moths of STARZ promo can’t be applied through app and I’m not putting my CC in through the web. Sorry but not worth $8.99 a month.
Love this show the very best
Promotion not valid 1/5
By trying to hangin there
I responded to the email offering Starz 99 cents for 3 months but each time I try to access get a different price. I do not want any of the subscription offers.
I never review apps but im really impressed with starz 5/5
I love the mini player feature and you can change the size of the mini player and even minimize it entirely while listening to the audio. The only complaint is the airplay feature bugs out when i lock my phone and i wish there was an intro skip feature for shows but its one of the better media streaming apps.
Best series… manly…my mam 5/5
I can’t get enough 4 x watched thru-in-thru
Use to love it 2/5
IDK what’s going on and why all of a sudden the app is supported by my tv provider when I have the channel and I always watched my shows on the app. Now it’s not supported. That’s bull.
Why the ads? 1/5
Why does an pop up before EVERY episode I want to watch? At least Hulu allows you to pay more and opt out of them. What a joke. After I finish watches my my show I will be canceling.
Good content… poor delivery 3/5
By Hungry shark evo lover
The shows are great, but the app doesn’t hold your place and you have to search for where you left off.
Good, but I have a suggestion 4/5
By Jamie Lee Bree
This app is alright, but I wish it was as user friendly as Netflix. With Netflix’s app, when you want to fast forward or rewind to a certain scene, you can see it; a small image pops up when you move the cursor forward or backward which shows each scene as you move it. With this app, though, I have to try and guess where the part was that I want to see, and it can be tedious.
Great Content, Terrible App 3/5
I love the content I find on the STARZ network. I am eternally frustrated with the app and it’s video playback capabilities. I have often done an A/B test with other video apps to ensure it is in fact the video player native to the STARZ app and not some issue with my connection. Over a cellular connection, Amazon will play back, YouTube works, Netflix runs like a champ… STARZ will give me fits over and over. This app doesn’t like playing through a rock connector either. Other annoying things are like when service does drop out, the app closes the video window and make you start from scratch. On every other platform I use the video screen would remain and would pickup where it was interrupted, with stars I have to completely reload the video. I’ve never had internet at my home, it’s never been an option.. I’ve never had a problem relying on my cellular connection to stream videos either on my phone or through a dock connector to my TV. STARZ is the app that gives me fits. It’s like it gets overwhelmed and glitches out. I would imagine the playback issues have a lot to do with the design of the STARZ app compared to others. It’s the only thing that makes sense seeing as I don’t have an issue on other services when I have issues with STARZ. Anyways, amazing content!! Fingers crossed that the app will one day function in kind.
How does one cancel? 2/5
This app shows no place to cancel.
STARZ no me permite entrar habiendo recibido el aviso de mi suscripción. 5/5
Luego de recibir el aviso de que todo está registrado traté de entrar a la aplicación y no me lo permite. Favor de cotejar ya que me daré de baja si no funciona.
App constantly closes 2/5
Content isn’t the problem, the viewing experience is. App closes itself constantly. Doesn’t seem to be any pattern, sometime can get 20 minutes viewed, sometimes just a couple of minutes. More often than not, once it starts, it happens every few minutes. Really frustrating for paid subscription.
Monster Hunter 5/5
By jayjay aka jdog
I like this movie so much I wish it was a part2
Love this show! It has all of the drama that anyone could want to see! Actors are on point and I’m sad that there isn’t a third season!!
Loving it!! 5/5
STARZ continuously brings the best shows on television hands down. STARZ hasn’t disappointed me yet.
Enjoying opportunity to see series 5 and hopefully 6 very soon.
Why I Like STARZ. 5/5
By Spider- Hero
I like STARZ because I like kids stuff they had on their, for example: frozen, big hero 6, planes, planes fire and rescue, dr Seuss the cat in the hat live action, and mostly my favorite: The Invisible Man from 1933. That was the best classic movie I had ever saw on you STARZ. So that is my review. And p.s. I really you can put at the Disney movies, and my favorite classic movie back. Thank You. Gene III.
Great stories 5/5
Love it so much! I almost quit the subscription but found ANOTHER amazing show!!
Just awesome! 5/5
By High water! My fix!
Awesome, awesome, awesome!
Their app is the worst streaming app 1/5
They can’t even save your place when you’re watching something soon as you turn off the app or stop watching it for any amount of time you have to remember where you were at fast forward it to that point it’s a horrible app
FOR DAD L.C. BLACK 5/5
By Annlee Israel
I love watching Sanford and Son this were one of my dad favorite show what a good memories the laughter of my dad L.C. BLACK (RIP) Rest In Power
Stop becoming BET 1/5
Has only a few good shows, need more shows, seems like Starz is becoming BET only.
New shows 4/5
By Smooth Watching
I like shows like run the world that are fresh and exciting all at the same time keep it going
Sunday Entertainment 5/5
I really only downloaded it for one reason “Run The World” ...besides that I’m truly enjoying other movies on this app as well & I’m glad I did!!! 😎
As an app it ran well and I liked that you can browse the movies from the newest to the oldest. What movies I did watch were quality but for me most of the movies were mediocre and not really worthy the subscription compared to HBO Max.
Just ok 2/5
This is the only streaming app that gives me connection issues constantly and has given me the too many viewers watching when I’m the only one with the login info so idk what’s up with the technical issues but it’s happening more than once so for that a 2 star rating but Run the World is an amazing show the movie selection is ok for the most part
This show stole my heart I will be watching all seasons all over again I can’t believe it took me this ling to watch I wish more people will think more with their hearts as much a Jamie does the other day I was having a family issue and I said to myself what would Jamie do? And at that moment I realized how much this show has influence my day to day life I’m glad I’m all caught up because for over a month I literally had no life!! Season 5 here income thank you STARZ ❤️❤️❤️
Running the World! 5/5
By RL Foxy
I love when a show is full of quality and creative content, and Run The World is a masterpiece!
No interest in Starz anymore 3/5
By virginian fan
The only interest I had in Starz was the Virginian and it’s gone. Used to watch every evening and was able to watch any episode I wanted anytime on the app. I do like Laramie and Cheyenne but without the Virginian I’m not spending my money on it
App does not work 1/5
Since the last update I cannot log into the starz app on my iPad , keeps saying log in error
