Starz to launch HBO Go-like web service next year Starz CEO Chris Albrecht has said today that the company is looking to starting an online version of its TV and movie channel that will operate just like HBO Go.
The streaming service, available for free to paying subscribers, will offer the ability to watch the company's premium programming via the Internet, on-demand.

Starz currently has 52 million subscribers.

Additionally, the company could also launch a stand-alone version of the service for subscribers who don't want the channels on their TV (or don't have TV).

Albrecht believes the service "would help reduce customer losses, increase availability beyond the home and attract younger subscribers."
