Starz Bumps Up End to ‘Droughtlander’

Starz Promo Aug 2014


In a press release circulated today, Starz announced that Outlander fans subscribing to the premium cable network or with access to its new streaming service (now available here) can put an end to Droughtlander in Two. More. Days.

That’s right! Adios, Saturday and hello, Thursday!


“Outlander” fans may enjoy the first full episode of the Golden Globe®-nominated series two days in advance of its official premiere on Saturday, April 9th at 9:00 pm ET/PT.

The standalone STARZ streaming service launched today, offering the first-ever download capabilities from a premium pay TV streaming service. STARZ subscribers from cable, satellite and telco partners can also authenticate and view STARZ in the new, easy-to-use app.

    So basically, all US customers who aren’t illegally watching Starz can watch the show early? Why are they showing it on Saturday then? Why not just show it on Thursday nights?

      Apparently so – I just signed into the app with my TV provider for STARZ and it works just fine without additional purchase. Just wish that it was on the big-screen rather than my tablet.

        If you have a Chromecast, I know that the Starz app will cast to that.

    I was going to do the add-on feature to my Prime account on Amazon… do those people get this bonus too? The price seems the same but can I stream it through my PS3… Wow, I’ve never written anything before on the internet that comes off so #FirstWorldProblems as what I just did…

      Yes, apparently Prime members can as well. Also, if you have a smart phone or tablet, you can download the Starz app and watch it there as well. There is an option for streaming service users to access the show from the app.

    Ok, wasn’t sure where else to put this and I promise not to be a spoil-sport but 1st episode back: AMAZING!! So good!!

    Ok, I’ll stop now.

    But really, so, so GOOD!

    I’ve heard the first episode gives us a pathetic excuse for Jamie and an overblown and of course heroic FRAAAAAAAAAAANK. Blech, why didn’t I cancel Starz?
