Starz Subscription Price Dropping: How to Stream The Serpent Queen Season 2 Cheaper

Just as Sony announced the PlayStation Plus subscription is getting a lot more expensive, another streaming service actually cut costs – are they an unicorn today or what?

Starz announced they’re lowering the price of the annual Starz subscription which, paired with how cheap this streaming app is, can only be great news for our already-stretched budgets.

A smaller player in the crowded streaming market, Starz is owned by Lionsgate and when they were bought back in 2016, it was a huge deal. Lionsgate bought Starz Inc. for $4.4 billion in cash and stock and it’s fortunate that they did, because they have a lot of great content. 

Scroll on to see how much Starz is and if you can get a free trial, then see some of the best movies and series on Starz that really make that subscription pay off.

Starz subscription price

Starting with their next billing cycle, Starz subscribers will see the price they have to pay for the streaming service going from $74.99 to $69.99. 

It’s not a huge deal for Starz customers but how rare is it to see something like this going down in price instead of up?
Hopefully, this move doesn’t mean Starz is having financial trouble, as, even though it’s not as huge as Netflix, it used to be one of our favorite streaming apps. It certainly is confusing, because the price of a Starz subscription per month recently went up from $8.99 to $9.99.

Fortunately, there are plenty of deals to be had, including a Starz free trial.

Depending on where you go, you can get a Starz free trial for 7 days on Amazon Prime, and then switch to a paid $9.99 subscription.

Another way to enjoy their content is to check out the latest Starz deals.

Earlier this year, Starz subscriptions came with a promo for $5/mo for 3 months. Then, they ran a legit special offer of $3/month for 3 months. Basically, if you want a deal on Starz, shop around a bit and you’ll definitely pay less than the regular price.

If you weren’t convinced and want to cancel your Starz trial, it’s as easy as signing up in the first place.

Starz: how to cancel subscription your subscription

To cancel your Starz subscription is a straightforward process.

To cancel  your Starz trial or subscription, go to your account settings, then select the “BILLING PLAN & INFORMATION” option.

What to watch: the best movies on Starz

Despite being a lesser-known streaming service, Starz has some blockbusters in their portfolio. Spider-Man: No Way Home, Zero Dark Thirty,  Independence Day, Home Alone, Jumanji: The Next Level, are just a few of them but, if you’re wanting some more cerebral movies, Starz has plenty.

If you’re wondering what to stream on Starz, here are a few movie suggestions:

You can stream Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood on Starz, if you missed Tarantino’s masterpiece.

If you loved Colin Farrell in Banshees of Inisherin, you can stream on Starz Roman J. Israel, Esq, an excellent drama featuring him as a supporting actor to the always superb Denzel Washington.

Speaking of Banshees of Inisherin, you can stream on Starz In Bruges, the other incredible story written by Martin McDonagh and featuring both Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, as well as Ralph Fiennes in the most quotable role ever.

Another great heartfelt story is Never Let Me Go from 2010, featuring Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan, and Andrew Garfield before he became the superhero we all know and love.

What to watch: the best series on Starz

Undoubtedly, one of the best series on Starz and indeed the show that put Starz on people’s map is Spartacus.

For fans of historical drama however, Starz has plenty more.

We recommend streaming Outlander, if you haven’t already, for a taste of historical Scotland, but the true gem really is The Serpent Queen.

Few people have watched it  but this is a series so good, you’ll join everyone in the hype for The Serpent Queen season 2.

The Serpent Queen: trailer and details

If you’re trying to convince your friends to give it a chance, do consider showing them the trailer instead of waving your arms about and explaining how it’s historical but NOT boring. 

Unlike most trailers who focus on epic music and empty lines said with a pompous tone, The Serpent Queen trailer is a great way to get an idea about what you missed. Samantha Morton, who plays Catherin De’ Medici, looking dramatically into your eyes, then narrating a truly wild ride.

What is The Serpent Queen about? If you missed one of the best series on Starz, here’s what the synopsis says.

“The Serpent Queen” tells the story of Catherine de Medici (Samantha Morton) who, against all odds, became one of the most powerful and longest-serving rulers in French history. Catherine’s tale unfolds through flashbacks as she defends her actions and imparts the lessons she’s learned to her new servant girl, Rahima (Sennia Nanua). At 14, the young, orphaned Catherine (Liv Hill) marries into the 16th-century French court. Despite her commoner status, her uncle Pope Clement (Charles Dance), has negotiated a large dowry and a geopolitical alliance in return for the union, and with it comes the expectation of many heirs. However, on her wedding night, Catherine learns that her new husband is in love with Diane de Poitiers (Ludivine Sagnier), a beautiful lady-in-waiting twice his age. With her future suddenly uncertain and with little hope of conceiving, Catherine must quickly learn who she can trust – both within her personal entourage of courtiers and the members of the royal court – while outmaneuvering anyone who underestimates her determination to survive at any cost.”

The Serpent Queen season 2 was greenlit almost a year ago, on October 2022, immediately after the first season launched.

Described by Kathryn Busby, President of Originals at Starz as “distinctly modern, darkly comedic, and completely unexpected”, this is one historical series that’s almost irreverent in its playfulness.

The Serpent Queen season 2 release date wasn’t yet published and many expected it to show up in September 2023. However, with the prolonged strikes in Hollywood from actors and writers demanding fair treatment, season 2 of The Serpent Queen could see delays.

Still, you can watch some of the best TV series on Starz if you take a look around.

We particularly like their documentary selection.

2020’s Seduced: Inside the NXIVM cult was a troubling look into the seedy side of Hollywood. Last year’s Who Is Ghislaine Maxwell will also cast some light on some of the most devious individuals in entertainment.

So, what do you think? Is a Starz yearly subscription worth it for this content or will you take it on a month-by-month basis?

Personally, I think American Gods on Starz justifies most recurring payments on my card – what a beautiful and flawed and beautifully flawed series!
