Re: Starz play

A quick query.

If I sign up to Starz Play via Virgin Media on Tivo, will I get a Starz Play account allowing me also to access Starz Play  content from other devices, eg via Amazon Prime? Or vice versa?

With Netflix you have a Netflix account with which you can access the service via other platforms.

Re: Starz play

Hi,

It will not allow me to upgrade to Starzplay through apps, just tells me I have to phone up, I assume I am not the only one.

This is the same for any upgrade in the past, its never allowed us to complete the process through the app option.

Not sure I can be bothered spending ages on the phone waiting to get through when I should be able to do it through the app easy and quick!

Re: Starz play

I have had the same screen come up since I tried from Wednesday and I have phoned VM twice and no one even knew what Starzplay was and both times thought I was talking about Starplus HD!

Re: Starz play

Moral of the story: if you have an Amazon Prime account sign up via that, forget about VM. It will also give you access through any connected device, not just Tivo/V6.

Re: Starz play

I subscribed to Starzplay at 20:00 and so far have not been able to watch either any of the films or tv series. I get the same infuriating message every single time, "This show is temporarily unavailable"

I've reset my Tivo too, it's driving me up the wall.

Re: Starz play

Although I've now got access to StarzPlay with VM, I'm struggling to see shows that are clearly being aired on Amazon Prime's equivalent. Most notably I'm talking about "American Gods".

Please tell me that this IS coming to the Virgin equivalent some time imminently?

If the content is indeed different, as I fear, this message may prevent others from making the same mistake

Re: Starz play

Starz and Prime are two different services, American Gods is a Prime program

As a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share my knowledge. I don't work for Virgin Media.
