Starz Play and du have signed a partnership that will allow the operator’s customers to access thousands of hours of HD content from Starz Play for a monthly subscription fee of just AED49, billed directly through their du prepaid or postpaid line.
du customers can download the Starz Play app and subscribe directly via their mobile phones. “This form of billing makes the transaction secure, as payment details will not be shared, while customers without credit cards are given the convenience of using the paid-for service,” states the operator.
During the launch period, customers subscribing to the service via du mobile billing will receive a two-month free trial period.
Fahad Al Hassawi, chief commercial officer at du, said: “By keeping our valued customers at the very core of our decision making process, we are able to continue delighting them with offers that make their lives easier. With the convergence of screens and content, it is our responsibility to ensure that our customers have the choice of the very best in content, when and where they want it, and on the screen of their choice.
