AT&T extends TV affiliation agreement with Starz Entertainment

AT&T (NYSE: T) U-verse customers will continue to get more from their dollar as the telco has signed a multiyear extension of its TV affiliation agreement with Starz Entertainment.

Although the terms of the agreement were not revealed, it covers all of Starz Entertainment's premium channels, HD, on-demand, and authenticated online services. 

In addition, the new agreement plays into the mobile nature of the user by extending the Starz Online, Encore Online, and newly launched Movieplex Online authenticated online advanced services for AT&T subscribers to watch premium movies and original content on PCs, Macs, tablets and portable devices via U-verse TV, U-verse Online, U-verse Tablet and U-verse Mobile.

The ability to watch and access content from multiple devices is a key feature for AT&T as it helps its users carry their content across the wireline and wireless domains.

Last October, AT&T struck a deal with both Starz and Encore to extend their content to their U-verse Online subscribers.

Of course, AT&T is not the only service provider Starz is working to realign their relationship with as its deal with Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX) will also expire at the end of this month.
