Starz/Encore flexview

Saw an ad on the tv the other night that Verizon now offers Starz/Encore flexview on mobile devices. Is there an app I need to download for an android phone? (didn't see one)

Verizon Media Manager supports Starz/Encore Flexview streaming. Verizon MM is available in the Google Play Store.

There is Encore EPIX has a website that allows you to use your VZ logon to see movies. There are iPad apps for HBOgo and SHO Anytime.

I would prefer a Roku channel and/or app for my Samsung TV instead of trying to watch a movie on my smart phone.

It looks like the Android app will not let you view Starz/Encore if your device is rooted, similar to Amazon streaming video, because of DRM restrictions. It won't let you "authorize" the device.

Can't blame verizon for that as the MPAA agreement with providers requires it. Hollywood once again shows they would rather have people pirate their movies then pay for it.

Pretty sure there is (or will soon be) a FiOS Flex View app for Samsung Smart TV.
