DIRECTV Now has added two new Starz channels — Starz and Starz Kids & Family.
The live streaming service included Starz Encore in its $70-a-month ‘Gotta’ Have It’ package when DIRECTV Now debuted on November 30.
But now all three Starz channels are available as a separate package for $8 a month. which is $1 less per month than what Starz normally charges for its online edition.
The offering of the Starz channels for $8 a month was first disclosed last week in an e-mail sent by DIRECTV to former DIRECTV Now subscribers.
In addition to the three live Starz channels, DIRECTV Now subscribers can access more than 2,500 movies and TV shows via a Starz On Demand service.
Starz’ lineup includes such movies as Star Wars: The Force Awakens; Inside Out; and Avengers: Age of Ultron, and original TV shows such as Power and Outlander (see picture above.).
