Starz Officially Launches in Canada

Starz Picks Up Horror Comedy Pilot Shining Vale

STARZ has officially launched in Canada, delivering its programming that has already established the channel as one of the leading pay television services in the United States. STARZ is now the Canadian home of all new STARZ original programming, select library titles, and classic films from all eras, including the new millennial comedy series Now Apocalypse from acclaimed filmmaker Gregg Araki who’s behind such indie hits as Kaboom, the winner of the first-ever Queer Palm Award at the Cannes Film Festival in 2010.

Available as an add-on to Crave for $5.99/month and as two linear channels (following last week’s rebrand of Encore), Canadians now have access to a lineup of buzz-worthy STARZ originals that also includes the highly anticipated spy-thriller The Rook premiering this summer; past seasons of popular titles such as Power, Party Down, and The Girlfriend Experience; critical darlings Vida and Sweetbitter; hundreds of fan-favorite movies, and more.
