The quick answer to your question:
- Yes, Unlocator does unblock Starz Play
Starz is a US cable and satellite television network that operates on a subscription basis. Starz Play on the other hand is the official app of the channel which allows you to stream their library of popular films and original television series. You can gain access to the likes of Spartacus, Ash vs Evil Dead, Da Vinci’s Demons, Flesh and Bone, and so many more. However, although it has a couple million subscribers, Starz Play remains geo-blocked outside the US. If you want to stream the channel abroad, you must make use of Unlocator VPN or Smart DNS.
How to Watch Starz Play Outside the US Using Unlocator Smart DNS
Despite having a valid subscription, access to Starz outside the US will only result in the following geo-error message
“Starz is Not Available. Unfortunately, you are not able to purchase STARZ outside the United States or Puerto Rico.”
Even their official website states that the channel is not available for streaming overseas:
” Sadly, fans of our shows and movies in other countries, other planets and distant galaxies cannot access STARZ Play. You must be in the United States or a US Territory to watch.”
Unlocator Smart DNS helps you bypass the regional restrictions imposed on the channel with ease. It redirects part of your internet traffic in which you seem to be browsing elsewhere. In this case, the US. All you have to do is sign up for a free Unlocator trial and configure the DNS settings by following these setup guides based on the platform your operating. Once done, you’ll be able to watch Starz anywhere in the world.
Unlocator Smart DNS doesn’t encrypt your traffic nor change your IP address. Therefore, your internet speed remains untampered with and you’ll still have access to your local channels while streaming Starz Play at the same time.
Unblock Starz Play Abroad With Unlocator VPN
Unlocator VPN approaches the issue differently. You will end up unblocking the channel wherever you are in addition to securing your device with the latest military encryptions. VPN works by redireting your whole traffic through one of its remote servers in a country of your choosing. Starz is an American channel, which means that a US server is required. Upon connecting, you’ll receive a US IP address and direct access to all US-based geo-restricted channels.
Now, all you have to do is create a free Unlocator account, install the application on your Android, iOS, Mac or Windows, connect to an American server, and you’ll have Starz Play regardless of where you might be located.
Remember, Unlocator only circumvents geo-restrictions. This means that you’ll still need a valid subscription to tap into Starz Play’s content library.
