Watch STARZ programs via Amazon Video's new streaming service!



Great news for OUTLANDER fans in the US:  You can now watch STARZ programming via a new streaming service from Amazon Video!

From the announcement in Variety:
It’s the first time that Starz is available to consumers outside of a traditional pay TV bundle; Starz CEO Chris Albrecht has in the past talked about embracing OTT, but the premium network has trailed its competitors HBO and Showtime in launching a standalone service. Albrecht said in a statement that he was excited to be an Amazon launch partner, adding: “This is a terrific product for customers to conveniently navigate their entertainment options quickly, easily and anywhere.”
This new streaming video service is being offered as an "add-on" to the regular Amazon Prime membership, at a cost of $8.99/month.  You can sign up for a free trial to access the STARZ programming here.

My understanding is that if you sign up for this new service, you will be able to access all of the OUTLANDER Season 1 episodes immediately via Amazon Video, and future episodes will be available via this streaming service as soon as they are broadcast.

IMPORTANT: This service is only available to viewers in the US who have an Amazon Prime membership, which costs $99/year.  You can sign up for Amazon Prime here.
