STARZ has both live content and on-demand content.

How Can you download Starz content?

If you ever want to make use of your subscription without access to a stable internet connection, you can download content to your device.

Most movies and series are available for download at Tap the download icon, which looks like an arrow pointing to an inbox, and you’re all set. Downloaded files and download progress bars will appear in your “My List” tab. If you don’t see a download icon, it’s because the title you want isn’t available, usually due to licensing agreements.

While you can watch downloaded titles at your convenience, some restrictions apply. Some international viewing restrictions will limit where you can watch outside the US. And downloads will autodelete after two weeks or if the title goes out of its licensing window.
