STARZ App Review 4/5
The movies could be better but the original series are why I subscribed especially OUTLANDER. I support STARZ primarily to fund shows like OUTLANDER 5 stars for every aspect of this amazing show. That is also why I continue my subscription during the HUGE hiatus between seasons.
Needs improvement 1/5
Constantly crashes or freezes. The 10 second skip feature only skips 6 seconds.
FIX THE RANDOM CRASHES ON IPAD APP 1/5
Even after the most recent update (today). The App Continually Crashes in the middle of watching movies on my iPad. Maybe something that should be fixed. Hint hint. Nudge nudge. -.-
Like C’Mon Now
No thank you 5/5
I do not wish to write a review,
Won’t let me hit play 1/5
By going to hbo
Nothing has been fixed I still can’t hit play on the app. Is this a joke?
By current hater of starz
STARZ just randomly started blocking dishes access to 95 percent of the reasonably good content. I literally use this app for two shows POWER and AMERICAN GODS. This is just a poorly run company.
Static apps good job 5/5
I am looking for the apps called stars, I like it a lot keep up the good work put more good movie special Baywatch I like the movie a lot.
negative starzzzzz 1/5
been tryin to cancel the subscription. it wont let me cancel. doesnt even pop up on my "subscriptions". emailed and called starz, 30 minute wait just to try and talk to someone. whats up?!?!?
I used to love the app but now there’s some sort of glitch and can’t even log in. I subscribe through my cable company and the when I try to log on I select through cable provider and get a pop up about ok’ing adobe and still can’t log on. Adobe? Really? All I want is to be able to get back into the app again.
Good programming, bad app. 1/5
It seems that every time I open this app something goes south. This time, it refuses to play or download American Gods, Episode 201. I deleted the app, reloaded it, logged in with my tv provider, and got the same result. I have an iPad Pro, it works beautifully. Why pay for frustration?
Terrible first experience 1/5
I just downloaded the STARZ app on my phone so I could activate the app on my Samsung TV. Tried to play an episode on my TV. It took forever to load, then started playing without a picture, The picture showed up for a second before promptly booting me out. I rebooted my TV as instructed on Samsung help, but continued to have the same problem. Tried to download the app on my iPad and when I opened the app it says “stream overload, four devices at one time is the max. please stop playback on an active device and try again.” I only have the app on the TV, my phone, and now the iPad. That is three devices. None of which are playing anything! Very frustrating. I was excited to start watching my series tonight. Thank goodness it’s a free trial. I will not waste my money on this app.
Stole money from me 1/5
By Michelle Clara
They’ve been charging me $10 every month without notifying me in any way and I haven’t been even been using the app except for that one week when I first tried it a long time ago. 🤬😡😡😡😡😡
What is it with this app? 2/5
I have much the same problem as another reviewer using Apple TV and Starz. Today it refused to play a movie at all telling me that I had four devices running simultaneously. The same movie played fine the day before. Although I had downloaded at High res, the screen was pixelated most of the time. I don’t have this issue with Tubi and Apple TV.
Works great 5/5
I downloaded the app to watch “Outlanders.” It was quick to download, easy to sign in through my local cable provider and I’ve enjoyed several episodes without any problems.
Constant Playback Errors 1/5
By your friendly neighborhood bob
I am so frustrated with this app. I get frequent playback errors and the app stalls- alot. I have called customer support multiple times and have gone through all the steps-force close the app, switch wifi, uninstall and reinstall the app, etc etc. But a few minutes later I still can't play the content. I have the latest version of ios on my ipad, I checked to see if there is a Starz update available- I have tried everything. I even check to see if my internet is working by going to google or whatever, and Netflix/Amazon prime load and play content just fine. I hate the Starz app, it's complete garbage. I am cancelling and seeing if I get better luck going through Amazon Prime.
This app is terrible 1/5
It’s always freezing or taking too long too load closed captions do not work and what is the point in downloading if I still need a connection watch I will go back to Hulu with commercials for my shows so disappointed
Religious Slurs and Racist Degradation 1/5
Using this app and watching specifically its most popular show American Gods, I’ve come to realize that there is so much more at play than a media company. Do they produce quality entertainment? Yes, the lighting, camera angles, filters, and CG are all very well done. The acting on some accounts was a little lacking, but that’s forgivable. What struck me the most however is the continued push against Christianity. All Gods are made out to be real, except for Jesus. All religious afterlife’s are real, except for Heaven and Hell in the Christian Faith. Continual mocks and slurs are made against Jesus and against Christians who believe in “fairy tales” and “nonsense” and are continually shown in a sinister light as though being a Christian in and of itself makes you an evil person. And the people who believed in the ancient Egyptian god Anubis are seen as rewarded and cherished as though they followed the truth. I am a Christian, and so I doubt that my review will be received without the same criticism that is dealt to Christians in the show.
I was also greatly disturbed by the poor portrayal of white Americans. And the continual continual portrayal of the “poor and downtrodden” black community. They compare slaves of the past to the blacks today. They say that they have it just as hard, or that blacks are somehow suppressed in modern days due to their skin color. Leaving emotions aside, if the statistics are read and due research made, it’s very clear that no one is any longer judged by the color of their skin so much as the content of their character. If a black person decides to embody the persona of a underprivileged American, he will act upon those those beliefs. Blaming his circumstances on the “privileged whites” or “upper class”. If one embodies the identity of true American ideology, they will act accordingly. That anyone can achieve anything, bc this is the land of the free. We are free to change our circumstances. We are free to pull ourselves out of the mud. We are free to do everything as we please, so long as we abide by the law. The idea that any one person cannot change their situation is not only degrading to that class, but it borders on the dangerous ideology of racism. Dividing people according to race and color. Choosing whites over blacks, either with jobs acceptances or school acceptances or house loans etc is wrong. That is undeniable. But to go in the opposite direction and demand that people offer certain privileges to certain classes because their skin is black or dark is also wrong. And it’s degrading. To give a black a lower entrance score into a school is degrading. To say that a black man rarely can afford to buy a house because of his position is degrading. And to promote on television to thousands of Americans everywhere that you cannot do anything, you cannot change anything, you cannot rise up because of the color of your skin is degrading and it is morally wrong. I am upset, not angry, but deeply saddened by how much this show pretends to champion the “minorities” and yet it strives so hard to solidify their position in society so they cannot and will not rise above. America is the land of the free, the land of opportunity, and if this kind of racism and religious hate continues, I am sorry to see where our country is headed. God bless America, and God have mercy on our souls.
Worth it 5/5
Love it...I’m a big critic about show/apps. STARZ has been on the best! Love watching Outlander through this verses the directTV app.
App crashes regularly 1/5
As others have noted, the app hangs and crashes, even though I have the latest updates for ipad, and the app is the current version. I've tried deleting and reinstalling, but it still doesn't work. This makes the app impossible to use. I don’t have this issue with other streaming services. Fix this please.
Does it ever work? 1/5
App opens very slowly, then finally allows you to navigate but won’t download or watch movies or shows. Just locks up the screen on three different iPhones, iPads and Firestick. When signing in through DirecTv, sends you into endless loop of logging in. Close login screen and you are logged in even though it repeatedly says your subscription is not found. But shows you are logged in. All the other apps we use seem to work fine, STARZ only allows you to see what they have but won’t let you watch anything. Doesn’t appear to be hardware issue, subscription works on satellite also. Just not on the app.
NO XFINITY????? 1/5
Why not xfinity???? Once I can use the app with my xfinity account I’ll give it a higher rating
Need to support DirecTV NOW 3/5
There is no login for DirecTV NOW. Other than that, app is good
Awful app. 1/5
I have been unable to play the new episode of American gods that aired Sunday, every time I click on the play button nothing happens. The xbox app freezes and doesn’t open, and now this version doesn’t work properly either. You’d think STARZ would’ve hired better developers.
By website and app are terrible
I’ve had STARZ through ATT for years and have continuously had issues with the app. For the past two days I have tried to log in (frustratingly) over and over again and it keeps taking me back to home screen, no logging in. Contacted STARZ directly and received a response saying that my ticket had been closed... but no solution was offered or provided. Will be cancelling my subscription since I am not able to use this!
Just deleted 1/5
I am unable to login with my tv provider but my password work on the computer. Something is wrong with this app
Would give zero stars but can’t. It freezes a lot if you pause it for to long the screen goes black and you have to restart the whole app again. Doesn’t work with WiFi apparently. Just the worse app that I’ve ever dealt for watch movies and shows. Waste of time, patience, and money. Don’t download you won’t even be able to watch anything on it. Netflix is better.
Great site, easy to use! Lots of good shows!
It’s taking forever to go into the app.
It is definitely not my wifi that is slow because I can get into every other app that uses wifi faster than starz.
Doesn’t work anywhere 1/5
Can’t stream on Apple TV or on iPhone. iPhone won’t allow me to play any content even though I have a subscription thru my TV provider while my Apple TV tells me “You don’t have STARZ through your TV Provider” without even letting me log in. You have one job, STARZ.
Logging in 1/5
So after subscribing, all I get is not able to login. My $8
Not playing movies 1/5
Come on!!!! Not able to download or play movies. I have already uninstalled the app and tried it again.... still nothing.
Load time 3/5
The app takes entirely too long to launch. Otherwise great app.
Signing into TV provider keeps me in continuous loop 1/5
I cannot sign in using my TV provider. I sign into spectrum it all goes well But then I’m ultimately just taken right back to the choose your provider page. Over and over and over. It’s a continuous loop I can’t get out of despite the login information working. Your provider login does not work.
Does not work consistently with an iPad 1/5
You have to reset, restore remember every blame password. Then you still have to shake it and pray hard and you might get one episode if you are lucky. Why do I pay for this stuff?
Plan on downloading a movie or two for offline viewing?
You’ll download a couple of movies before a flight, and while you’re up in the air getting ready to watch the show, you’ll open the app, try to play a downloaded movie and see:
“Error. Content is not currently available. Please try again later”.
It’s on my iPhone taking up GBs of space - How is the content not available and how will this change if I try again later?
This app 5/5
Better than expected
Loving American Gods - so much to learn 5/5
App keeps crashing 1/5
App crashes every 10 minutes on the iPad. It's been like this for months.
Just updated now can’t stream!!?? 1/5
The STARZ app on my Samsung tv has always had issues with freezing up and not loading properly but I could at least stream from my phone to the chrome cast. I just updated the app and now the ability to stream is gone!!! I guess it’s time to cancel my monthly subscription.
Horrible service! 1/5
I wouldn’t even give this app a star rating due to the lack of assistance I’ve received. I subscribed to the app 2018 I decided to cancel in December, which it expired, Dec. 2nd of 2018! It is now March of 2019 and I’m still being charged. I went on the help portion I’ve wrote emails and I am NOW on a call which I’ve been on hold for 30minutes! This is ridiculous I wouldn’t recommend the subscription EVER! I’d like my money back as I’m not even using the app. Anytime I try logging in to see if my account is still activated it says user doesn’t exist SO WHY AM I STILL BEING CHARGED
Love that my shows is on this app. But the app is so laggy most of the time and just irritating.
Trying to cancel 1/5
Have been trying to cancel this subscription, but cannot. Have followed every instruction to manage my subscription, but no luck. Keep getting billed monthly for something I no longer want with no way to cancel.
A lot of bugs 2/5
1. Time out...if you watch and leave your device the app does not keep your place it reloads the app and you have to find the series you were watching again and then click on the episode which is very annoying.
2. When watching a series the next episodes does not automatically play I have to go back to the menu and select it. Also you can’t just click on the episode icon they add and extra step and you have to click the episode then select play at the top. I don’t understand the point of this at all.
If these things were fixed I wouldn’t have any complaints but these 2 things making watching on the app very unenjoyable.
So I’m just going to list my top issues.
1. App randomly stops playing video & it’s freezes forcing me to close it out and restart
2. Skip button appears on video but does not allow me to click it...seems to be non responsive 95% of the time
3. App randomly crashes
This iPad app has been increasingly worse in the last few months. The last two updates have really been BAD. I’m not sure if I will continue my starz subscription since this is the primary place I watch starz on and these issues making watching anything unbearable I can’t get through more than an episode or two without an issue
Classic Shows 1/5
What happened to the full episode listings of classic shows like the A-Team and Magnum, P.I.????
App never works 1/5
By mrs. caroli
Only occasionally works on my smart TV and not working on my iPhone. On the tv I get sound and no picture. On the phone it won’t even start a movie. It works on the iPad ...
Can’t binge 4/5
Needs a feature to start next episode as soon as the credits roll. Also could have a feature to skip the intro. Don’t need to watch that every time if you watch multiple episodes in a row.
By All sum
It takes an extremely long time to load when you try to open this app. I downloaded a movie to be able to watch at a later time without WiFi, and the movie will not load.
I tried to click a movie It would not work when I tried
