As the popularity of Samsung's Tizen-based Smart TVs continues to increase, more and more developers continue to provide useful apps that bring more useful and entertaining contents to users right in their homes. Samsung's range of SmartTVs is now revealed to have gotten the Starz app specifically built for it. Starz made the announcement today that its STARZ app is now available for some Samsung Smart TVs in the U.S.
STARZ subscribers who enjoy the Startz app on compatible devices such as Amazon Fire TV, Xbox One, Apple TV, iPhones and iPads running iOS 8.0 or higher, Roku TV Box, Sony Android TV, as well as most Android phones, tablets etc, can now enjoy the rich content offered on the STARZ streaming channel. But right now, there won't be the need to connect to the STAR channel using a TV Box or other compatible device.
Some of the interesting series which would become available to subscribers on the STARZ channel includes “American Gods”, “The White Princess”, “Black Sails”, “The Missing,” “Outlander” and “Power”. There are also hundreds of movies and first-run films and Other Hit STARZ Original Series which the STARZ app brings to your home.
