How to Watch Starz in Australia

Whether you are sick of Netflix and want a change or just want to watch Starz in Australia to be up to date with Power and American Gods, fooling Starz is relatively simple. 

It just takes 2 steps that we’ll go over in this blog.

Sounds good? 

Let’s get into it then!

The Only Way to Watch Starz in Australia

There’s only one way to watch Starz in Australia.

It’s by making Starz think that you are in the US.

Luckily, Starz doesn’t complicate your life when it comes to that.

Most services? They will force you to have an American card and that vastly complicates things for you.

Starz doesn’t do that, though.

You just need to make it think that you are in the US.

And you do that with a VPN.


VPN services allow you to change your location virtually, and in this case, when you connect to an American PrivateVPN server, you will be in the US, virtually, while in, reality, being in Australia.

Is that in then? Just be connected to an American server, and you will be able to watch Starz in Australia? 


It’s Not as Simple as Just Using a VPN...

To watch Starz in Australia, the VPN needs to be able to trick Starz specifically.

It’s not as simple as connecting to the right region. If it was, then PrivateVPN wouldn’t support the most Netflix regions on the market as there’s a lot of VPN services that have more servers on paper. 

When it comes to unblocking entertainment, the quality of the servers you connect to is crucial, and PrivateVPN? It supports Starz just like it supports many other services like Hulu and ESPN+, to name a few.

PrivateVPNs American servers like Buffalo works with Starz.

Just create an account with our 7-day free-trial (no card required), download the app in your app store or from our Download site, provide your details, and connect to our server, and you are good to go.

Matter of fact, you are good to go on up to 6 devices at the same time so that you can hook up your entire family.

If someone wants to watch a different platform in a different region while you watch Starz in Australia, they can.

We mentioned there are 2 steps, though.

And that’s because depending on what device you are using, you might also want to download the Starz app, which isn’t right away available in Australia. 

We’ll walk you through this now.

Watching Starz in Australia with the app on your Apple Devices

  • Log out of your iCloud account.
  • Create a new account that is based in the US.
  • Download Starz.

Vital tip: DO NOT CHANGE YOUR REGION. You need to create a new account. Otherwise, you will lose everything!

Downloading the Starz App in Australia on Android Devices

  • Connect to a US location with PrivateVPN.
  • Press on the 3 bars on the top-left of the screen of the Google Play Store.
  • When the Google Play Store sees that you are connected to a US IP, it will show you an option to switch to that location with your Google Play Store.
  • Update your payment method to do so. For that, add a new card.

...Or search for "Starz.apk" on the internet and install it from there. Provided you download from a trusted site.

Watching Starz in Australia on your TV

Let’s face it. The best watching experience is on TV.

The issue with watching Starz in Australia on a TV? That not many TV platforms support VPN services.

You can forget about watching Starz on Apple TV, just like you can forget about watching Starz on the Chromecast and Roku.

The only options?

Android TV and the Amazon Fire TV devices.

And we’ll tell you; the Amazon Fire TV devices are incredible, which is why we recommend you get one and connect it to your TV.

The last alternative? To install a VPN on a router, The issue with that is that most routers aren’t powerful enough to run VPN services. 

Here’s how to install Starz on an Amazon Fire TV Device:

  1. Go to your current Amazon account in the web browser.
  2. Choose Accounts & Lists and then click on Manage Your Account and Content.
  3. Change your region to be in the US.
  4. Go to your Amazon Fire TV device.
  5. Click on Settings and then My Account.
  6. Deregister and sign back into your account.
  7. Download Starz.
