StarzPlay is the streaming side of the Starz TV network in the USA; however, it has a host of content in certain regions outside the United States.
StarzPlay can be accessed by a wide range of devices, including phones, tablets, Roku, PCs, Android TV, certain Smart TVs, and consoles. You can download the StarzPlay app watch via your browser through the website. StarzPlay costs £4.99 per month, and you get a 7-day free trial to new subscribers.

Anyone in the UK can add StarzPlay to an Amazon Prime account and still get the trial once you add the service together with your plan.
