It’s coming. Apps as channels on your iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. The latest is Starz. Hilary Lewis:
The app costs $8.99 a month and is available for download from Apple’s app store — for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Apple TV — and Google’s play store, for Android devices.
The app allows up to four users to watch simultaneously and offers virtually unlimited downloads, a first for a premium cable channel app.
Starz joins CBS, HBO, and Showtime with digital subscriptions and others will follow. When you add up all the apps as channels you’d watch I suspect the monthly price tag will be about the same as Cable TV.
