Starz scored a multi-year distribution deal for Optimum and Suddenlink. The premium network was removed from the Altice USA systems on January 1.

The deal allows Altice USA to offer the full suite of Starz and Starz Encore linear and HD channels as well as on demand and online services. It also gives Altice USA the right to sell the Starz App to customers and broader digital rights including TV Everywhere. The deal also expands Starz’s packaging position.
