Fueled by the return of “Power,” the STARZ App saw 110% more new and returning customers signing up over premiere weekend compared to previous period last year and 115% more streams of the “Power” season premiere episode v. season four on premiere day. All of this activity made the STARZ App the #1 entertainment app on IOS, ahead of Netflix, on Sunday, July 1. Strong performance on the App continued from Monday to Thursday following the premiere as well, with 84% higher customer adds than the same period last year, resulting in more than 2.8 million streams of the episode. The premiere episode of “Power” saw a 41% lift in Live +3, bringing it from a 4.31 in HH Live+SD coverage rating to a 6.06, and delivering total average audience of 2.1M viewers.
