May 5 it is for all those interested. This comes after The White Queen and The White Princess. It is strange to me these haven't gotten a over arching name and the season just been the different books. These follow the Tudor book series by Phillipa Gregory as does the movie The Other Boleyn Girl. The Spanish Princess will actually be a combination of the books The Constant Princess and The King's Curse and will tell the story of Catherine of Aragon, Henry VIII's first wife.
Today there are two great pieces of news for Outlander fans. First, Lionsgate teamed up with Amazon on the Starz expansion in Europe which means more areas of Europe will see the Starzplay channels. This includes Germany and much of the UK.
Lionsgate's chief executive officer John Feltheimer state Lionsgate plans to expand Starz into 15 more territories over the next 3 years. This means British and German viewers will be able to watch Outlander and other Starz shows along with the US viewers. The UK's access to Starz started yesterday which means you can opt-in now and watch everything along with your US fan friends.
And the second bit of good news is Starz will soon be in Canada for those Canadian fans who want the same perk. It is apparently going to take a little longer to with Bell to be finalized but it is happening and hopefully soon enough that Canadians can be watching the new season right along with the rest of us.
Bell Media has signed a multi-year content deal with Starz, the No. 2-ranked premium paid U.S. television platform.
As part of the deal, the channel The Movie Network Encore will get Starz branding next year.
Individual Starz shows have aired in Canada for years, including “Outlander,” which will remain on the Corus-owned specialty channel W in Canada, and “Black Sails.”
The brand new Starz spy thriller “Counterpart” launched Sunday on CraveTV. Starz has more on the way, including a new adaptation of “Howards End.”
