App doesn’t allow you to do anything
Just downloaded this app signed up and signed in to there site with my direct tv subscription and everything seemed fine until I tried to press the play button it did nothing it’s almost like someone is playing a joke on you it’s good for two things. First thing you can view a huge catalog of shows that starz would allow you to watch if you find out how to play the video (probably just a glitch but I’m on the newest iPad Pro on the latest software and everything). The second thing this app is good for is sharing the videos that your not able to play to people who know about what ever secret play button that’s obviously just hidden really hope they can fix this I’ve never had a problem with any other streaming service maybe there just not ready to roll with the big dogs maybe Netflix will sent you the way of blockbuster and we can hear about you in museums in another 50 years

Thank you for your feedback and enthusiasm for STARZ. We have addressed many issues with the latest release 3.11.0. Please update to the latest version and lets us know how it goes.
App Review, Not Content (device iPad Pro)
First, the app content is good.
My issue/frustration is with the functionality of the app itself. My biggest pain point (and it’s a big one for me) is that the app times out quickly and the video closes, especially whenever my iPad screen times out. So, say I hit Pause on a video for more than a minute or two and/or step away from my iPad long enough for the screen to lock, when I return, I have to reopen STARZ, and re-navigate to the video I was watching from the STARZ home screen. This also occurs when I switch between apps. Whenever STARZ is temporarily moved to the background, I have to search all over again. This is the only app I’ve encountered that does this, making it especially noticeable. Also, other apps have the PIP “drawer” functionality where you can slide a video off screen and return to it. This is not the case in STARZ... the video disappears, and again, if it has been a significant amount of time, I have to re-navigate back.
It’d be nice to have quicker access to the main menus, and to time out on the active content’s description screen (but keep the video window open if in PIP mode).

Thank you for your great feedback. We will take it into consideration for future enhancements.
Good variety of programs
I have used Starz for quite a while, through my TV provider and also with the streaming app, which I like because it puts all the content in one place. There are recent movies as well as older TV series and original programs, it’s pretty easy to find titles and they make recommendations based on what you’ve watched and they seem to rotate titles through fairly regularly. I’ve used the app on Roku as well as Apple TV and have never had any buffering or freezing issues. To the people who say they can’t cancel, if you subscribe through your cable provider, you have to do it through them, otherwise it’s pretty easy in the App Store. There are good deals on subscriptions through the App Store or the Starz website if you pay for a year up front. Starz shows movies you don’t always see on the other services and for that reason alone it’s worth the price of a subscription.
