Verizon FIOS will be showing a free preview of Starz April 17th to April 23rd.

The movie Zombieland: Double Tap has just gotten its premiere on Starz so you could catch that during this free preview.

Thank you, Cary, Kristen, and Ellen, for letting us know about this free preview! If you know about a free preview please let us know about it!

  1. Thanks, we don’t get STARZ very often so I will be looking forward to this

  2. Just checked and it’s not showing up

  3. No Starz preview in NJ, as of 9 am Friday 4/17; the channels are still blocked. I’ll keep checking through the weekend….

    1. Never mind, I rebooted my set-top box and the channels are working now!

  4. Verizon FiOS just cut off access 24 hours too soon … AGAIN!

    WTF is wrong with them??

    Curious: What is the source of the end date given here? I’d like to cite the source and while this is a great clearinghouse, what’s the source for this preview info?

    1. So, I called, finally got someone competent and finally got resolution on “WTF is wrong with them.”

      Reportedly, while Verizon controls the channel content, the On-Demand content/permissions come from the providers (in this case, Starz). “Kelly” @ Verizon reports that providers consistently cut off their On-Demand services at midnight starting the last day of the free preview, while Verizon allows the customer to keep the channel-based content for the remainder of that last day.

      So, while that sucks, at least I can expect that behavior for the future and plan accordingly.

  5. So, does that mean if I have Verizon, I can watch Starz today, 4/23 or not? I am having trouble figuring this out.

    1. Hi Patricia, apologies for this late reply, the short answer is yes, the longer answer is; Take a look at the end of WiiGame’s reply above yours: “Verizon allows the customer to keep the channel-based content for the remainder of that last day.”.
