TV Everywhere design and development experts Digiflare successfully completed a first-ever collaboration with Starz for the recent launch of STARZ PLAY on Xbox One®.
STARZ PLAY is the authenticated online TV Everywhere service for STARZ premium subscribers in the United States offering more than 400 monthly selections, including 300 movies comprising first-run and other great films from a wide selection of Hollywood studios and 100 episodes of exclusive STARZ Original series.
The other Starz authenticated online services, ENCORE PLAY and MOVIEPLEX PLAY, are progressing in Xbox One development and expected to launch by year-end 2014 with assistance from Digiflare.
Digiflare's expertise in both Xbox One design and development along with their long standing experience delivering TV Everywhere products proved to be a strong match with Starz's vision to deliver a high quality, premium experience for its PLAY services.
