Get The Facts

For STARZ to deliver continued programming to your home, we must negotiate agreements with service providers like Altice, the parent company of Optimum.

We know situations like this can be confusing. Below, we’ve tried to clarify some key points. If you have additional questions, you may contact Optimum at 844-71-STARZ.

Optimum has chosen to let their contract with STARZ expire.

That means, if you have Optimum cable service from Altice, you're affected.

Altice is the parent company of Optimum.

Altice purchased Cablevision in 2016. As the parent company that provides the Optimum cable television service, Altice ultimately controls what channels are broadcast to Optimum customers.

Optimum has chosen to drop all STARZ channels, rather than make a good faith effort to work towards an agreement that would keep STARZ on the air for Optimum customers.

STARZ is committed to developing strong, mutually beneficial relationships with our distribution partners, but doing so requires good faith efforts from all parties. So far in contract negotiations, Altice continues to insist on unreasonable and extreme deal terms. STARZ continues to make every effort to reach a new deal with Optimum.

You can make sure Optimum brings back STARZ.

Make your voice heard! Call Altice, your Optimum provider at 844-71-STARZ or send them a message on social media. Just click on the Facebook and Twitter icons on this page, and you can leave your provider a message right now.

You’ve lost more than just STARZ.

That includes STARZ, STARZ Edge, STARZ In Black, STARZ Comedy, STARZ Cinema, STARZ Kids & Family, STARZENCORE, STARZENCORE Action, STARZENCORE Classic, STARZENCORE Black, STARZENCORE Family, STARZENCORE Suspense, STARZENCORE Westerns, STARZENCORE Español and Movie Plex channels.
