What’s coming soon to STARZPLAY UK in February 2021?
Staff Reporter | On 07, Feb 2021
As one of the smaller streaming platforms in the UK, STARZPLAY struggles when it comes to having a large enough library to compete with Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. It has to therefore focus on quality over quantity, and 2020 has been a promising proof of that strategy’s success, with Doom Patrol joined by Stephen King’s Castle Rock and Jimmi Simpson noir thriller Perpetual Grace Ltd.
February continues the weekly run of Stephen King’s The Stand, but it’s the new debuts that really stand out from the crowd, including Batman prequel Pennyworth, the entertaining and timely film Bombshell and all four seasons of Black Sails.
Here’s what’s coming soon to STARZPLAY in February 2021:
