AT&T and STARZ have agreed to a multi-year content carriage agreement which will see AT&T’s customers having more options in terms of content and value.
The new deal permits AT&T to offer content from STARZ and STARZ Encore premium linear and HD channels, On-Demand, HD On-Demand, and online services to their DIRECTV, AT&T TV, and U-verse customers.
The news came after Comcast recently said that they will drop STARZ from the cable service by the end of the year. Comcast and STARZ have had a rough history with the former being one of the only cable providers not to offer integration with the STARZ app.
The terms of the multi-year renewal were not disclosed. In their August 29 announcement, the companies said that they “regret the inconvenience incurred by customers, viewers, and advertisers.”
