There are several streaming video services for premium pay channels such as HBO and Cinemax that have been available for a while. The catch with these authenticated streaming services is that you have to be a participating provider and have subscription to the normal networks. Starz Play and Encore Play are two such authenticated streaming services.
Both of these authenticated streaming services are now available for subscribers to Cox cable. That means that with a few details from your Cox account and a subscription to both of the networks using your cable provider, you can now stream and catch up on programs you like from the networks. This is good news if you’re a fan of Spartacus that missed episodes.
The streaming services are available online and through dedicated apps for iOS. There will be individual offerings for both networks. A third service called MoviePlex Play will be offered in the future, as will Android apps. For now, only Cox customers can access the services.
