A cable movie channel has struck a carriage agreement with a cable provider including digital and VOD rights.
Starz’s and Time Warner Cable’s long term agreement replaces a monthly one. The carriage agreement covers Starz’s 15 multiplex networks and expands Time Warner Cable’s opportunities for streaming movies and original shows in a TV Everywhere package. Viewers will be able to watch Starz programming on computers, mobile devices like iPhones and iPads, and Google Android-capable gadgets.
Many markets will also have on-demand bonus materials from the cable network’s original series like “Da Vinci’s Demons,” “Magic City” and “The White Queen.”
Terms, such as length of the renewal, of the deal were not disclosed.
DirecTV, Cox Communications, Verizon FiOS, AT&T U-verse TV, Comcast and Dish Network have all take Starz’s TV Everywhere services, though Comcast and Dish have rights to the content through their own portals.
“We are excited to provide our customers with access to these new innovative products and services through our agreement with Starz,” Susan Weinstein, Time Warner Cable’s group VP of content acquisition, said in a statement. “This is another example of our commitment to bring TV Everywhere to our customers.”
