Starz joins YouTube TV as a $9 per month premium add-onJune 20, 2018
Starz is coming to YouTube TV as a paid add-on option that will see the premium cable company’s channels come to the over-the-top streaming service for an extra $9 per month, via TechCrunch.
That price includes access to all 14 Starz and Starz Encore channels, making it the latest option to join YouTube TV’s premium extras (along with Showtime, Shudder, Sundance Now, and Fox Soccer Plus.) Those are all separate subscriptions on top of the $40 per month price tag for the base YouTube TV service.
Notably missing on that list is HBO, which according to a Bloomberg report is due to issues with Time Warner negotiations over Turner TV channels for YouTube TV, which lead to Time Warner instructing HBO to stop negotiating with YouTube.
Starz also offers its channels separately as an $8.99 over-the-top subscription, as well as through DirecTV Now, Sling TV, and Amazon Prime, making this more of a convenience for YouTube TV subscribers who want all their channels in one place.
