Starz (originally "Starz!", it dropped the exclamation point in 2005) is a U.S. pay cable television channel that features mainly first-run motion pictures. It was founded in 1994 and it is owned by Liberty Starz. Starz and Encore are considered the flagship channels of Starz Entertainment. Encore, its sister channel, was launched three years earlier.
As of December 2008, Starz's programming is available to 17.7 million subscribers in the United States.
Starz was launched on February 1, 1994, primarily on TCI cable systems (both it and Liberty Media were controlled by John Malone) before expanding to more than 90% of all American cable systems in the United States by the early 2000s. The channel focused more on recent hit movies than sister channel Encore, which originally aired movies made primarily in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s before adding recent fare as well in 1999.
Starz! originally carried the "Encore 8" moniker. Within two years of the channel's launch, Starz began being separated from the Encore brand (though "Encore 8" remained until 2002) and launching multiplex channels: Starz! 2 (launched 1996, renamed Starz! Theater in 1999 and Starz Edge in 2005), BET Movies: Starz! (launched 1997, renamed Black Starz! in 2001 after BET came under common ownership with Showtime, and renamed Starz inBlack in 2005), Starz! Cinema (launched 1999), Starz! Family (launched in 2000), and Starz! Kids (launched 2004).
Starz! Family and Starz! Kids later merged into Starz Kids & Family in 2005, with Starz Comedy taking Starz! Kids's channel space at the same time. An HD feed was started in 2004.
While the majority of Starz's programming consists of movies, Starz does offer original programming pertaining to the behind the camera aspects of movies as well as entertainment news programming some of which also air on Encore.
In the late 1990s, the corporate entity behind Starz and Encore was renamed Encore Media Group (now Starz Entertainment). While sister channel Encore is separate from Starz, cable systems usually offer the Encore services on a separate digital cable tier from Starz and some cable systems do not sell and bundle Encore separately from Starz.
What is unusual about Starz is despite the fact that it launched three years after Encore, Starz is the flagship channel of the Starz Entertainment channels. Starz and Encore are the only successful premium movie channels since The Movie Channel and Cinemax launched in 1979 and 1980, respectively. Starz and Encore succeeded where Home Theater Network and Spotlight failed. Unlike HBO and Showtime, the Starz channels neither have international premium channels nor have international cable channels using the Starz or Encore brands.
On November 19, 2009 Liberty Media spun off Starz and Encore into a new company named Liberty Starz.
On January 1, 2010, former HBO President Chris Albrecht joined Starz, LLC as its President and CEO. He will oversee all of the Starz entities, including Starz Entertainment, Overture Films, Anchor Bay Entertainment and Film Roman
Starz operates six multiplex channels, a high-definfition simulcast of all six channels, and a video-on-demand service.
* Starz: Hit movies & first-run films from Hollywood blockbusters to indie flicks and international pictures.
* Starz Cinema: Destination for movies with enduring themes, films outside the mainstream cinema, arthouse films.
* Starz Comedy: Lighthearted flicks and movies that make you laugh as well as the original series Stand Up or Shut Up. Took over the channel space from Starz! Kids in 2005.
* Starz Edge: films for the new generation, originally known as Starz! 2 and later Starz! Theater
* Starz In Black: Dedicated to showcasing the best in black cinema and urban entertainment; including first-run hits, classical films, Pan-African films and original productions. Starz in Black was previously known as BET Movies: Starz! (when it was co-owned with BET), then renamed Black Starz, when BET was opted out of the venture and purchased by Viacom.
* Starz Kids & Family: All Family movies, always commercial-free, from action & adventure movies to comedies to family treasures. This channel previously was two services: Starz! Kids & Starz! Family, but merged into one channel in 2005.
Starz also packages the Eastern and Pacific feeds of the main Starz service and all multiplex channels together, allowing viewers a second chance to watch the same movie/program three hours earlier or later depending on their geographic location.
