STARZ Offers A Jump On The Outlander Season – You Can Watch 2 Days Early

If you’ve been starting to twitch as you wait for more Outlander, there’s good news. You’re going to have the chance to check out the first episode a little early… though that makes the wait for the second episode worse… or something.

STARZ just launched their standalone streaming App, and while that’s news enough for fans of their shows, they didn’t wait long to throw in a little bonus. The second season stars on April 9th at 9pm, but you can get a jump on things two days early via the streaming App, or online, or via many On Demand/Online partners.

If you aren’t already a fan, you don’t have long to catch up with the show that fans voted Most Bingeworthy at this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards.

As fans already know, this season is going to look rather different, and require some wardrobe adjustments for the stars. It’s going to be a great ride, and you might as well jump in early.







Starz announced today that the premiere episode of the second installment to STARZ’s hit series “Outlander” will be available starting Thursday, April 7th exclusively to STARZ subscribers on the new streaming STARZ app and as well as on multiple television on-demand and online platforms.

“Outlander” fans may enjoy the first full episode of the Golden Globe®-nominated series two days in advance of its official premiere on Saturday, April 9th at 9:00 pm ET/PT.

The eagerly-awaited second installment of “Outlander” is based upon the second of eight books in Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling Outlander series, entitled Dragonfly in Amber. The series is executive produced by Ronald D. Moore (“Battlestar Galactica,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation”).

The standalone STARZ streaming service launched today, offering the first-ever download capabilities from a premium pay TV streaming service. STARZ subscribers from cable, satellite and telco partners can also authenticate and view STARZ in the new, easy-to-use app.

The 13-episode second installment of “Outlander” begins as Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) arrive in France, hell-bent on infiltrating the Jacobite rebellion led by Prince Charles Stuart, and stopping the battle of Culloden. With the help of his cousin Jared, a local wine merchant, Jamie and Claire are thrown into the lavish world of French society, where intrigue and parties are abundant, but political gain proves far less fruitful. Altering the course of history presents challenges that begin to weigh on the very fabric of their relationship. However, armed with the knowledge of what lies ahead, Claire and Jamie must race to prevent a doomed Highland uprising and the extinction of Scottish life as they know it.
