How to Watch STARZ Without Cable
You’re used to streaming movies online using Netflix and Amazon Prime, but they don’t have all the latest releases in their collections, which is why cable still has a bit of an edge over them, especially with channels like STARZ. But what if we told you STARZ and other movie channels are now available online? That’s exactly what a skinny bundle delivers: It gives you live TV channels that you can customize to your heart's content. Forget about being saddled with hundreds of channels you don’t ever watch; with a skinny bundle, less is more.
If STARZ is the channel you’re after, you can find it on these streaming services: DIRECTV STREAM, Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, Philo, fuboTV, and YouTube TV. Find out more about these streaming services below.
Hulu + Live TV is another excellent option. Hulu has an impressive library that includes on-demand programming. You can watch “The Handmaid’s Tale” and STARZ all in one convenient place.

Still not sure of the answer. I do not have cable or satellite TV. I have a standard antenna. Can I get STARS? I recently bought the Amazon Firestick but I am getting ‘buffering’. I started the 7 days free trial of STARS.
If you’re getting buffering, then either your Internet Service Provider (ISP) has too slow a speed or your streaming device is using wifi as the input source instead of wired (either Ethernet or a MoCa network [Google it], the latter of which uses existing coax in your home to produce Ethernet speeds to any coax outlet in the home).
If your Internet speed is slow (e.g., even on your computer when hooked up to your router w/Ethernet), try to get a faster plan from your ISP or switch to a better ISP (e.g., switch from DSL to Cable/Fiber Optic). You should try to have at least 8 Mb/second speed reliably to do streaming, but more is better (e.g., 15-25 Mb/second). If your household is using multiple devices on the same network at the same time, you’ll need more speed to start with coming into your home (e.g., probably at least 15-25 Mb/second, but more is better).
If your internet speed is good enough, then check your home’s network/LAN speed. If using wifi, it may be too slow.
If your model of Fire TV Stick allows an Ethernet adapter (sold separately by Amazon), you could hook it up via Ethernet to either your router or a MoCa adapter if wifi is too slow. If you’re using MoCa, you’ll need two MoCa adapters, one hooked to your ethernet adapter on the Fire stick, and one hooked to your router.
