Not just HBO: Starz wants to launch a streaming service for cord cutters as well

Next up to jump on the unbundling bandwagon may be Starz: The premium cable channel is planning to launch an online-only subscription service in international markets over the coming months, and Starz CEO Chris Albrecht suggested during the company’s earnings call Thursday that it will likely do the same in the U.S. “I don’t think it cannibalizes the existing business. It is a way to innovate and create real value,” he said, according to Variety. Albrecht’s remarks come after HBO, CBS and Univision all announced their own unbundling plans.
