Universal has signed another licensing deal – this time bringing Universal’s live action films in the U.S to Starz, following their previously announced Pay-One windows. The deal will start with the 2022 theatrical slate.

Under the new agreement, Starz will have access to titles including the newest installment of the Jurassic World franchise, Jurassic World: Dominion; The 355; and Ambulance.

“This agreement with UFEG allows STARZ to continue deepening our premium content offering for our subscribers with Universal’s award-winning and critically-acclaimed film slate that complements our existing extensive film library and original programming,” said Jeffrey Hirsch, President and CEO of STARZ. “This windowing strategy builds value to our subscribers and partners while expanding our deep roster of premium movies for fans of all genres.”

Universal has previously announced that after its current deal with HBO comes to an end at the end of this year, its films will be exclusively available to stream on Peacock after theatrical debuts. Just after that announcement, Amazon shared that films will be available on Prime Video after the exclusive window on Peacock. Netflix also announced this week that they will be the home of Universal’s animated films. We now know that the live action titles will move to Starz.

“We’re thrilled to partner with STARZ as they continue to build a comprehensive film offering with content that appeals to its broad consumer base with compelling new releases and iconic library titles,” said Peter Levinsohn, Vice Chairman and Chief Distribution Officer, UFEG. “This agreement reflects UFEG’s commitment to flexibility in building value through our distribution capabilities and constantly refreshing our content across multiple platform partners.”
