Cox Communications Launches The Full MOVIEPLEX Multi-Platform Experience -- MOVIEPLEX + MOVIEPLEX ON DEMAND + MOVIEPLEX PLAY

Now Offers All Three Starz Authenticated Online Services for Cox Advanced TV Subscribers - STARZ PLAY, ENCORE PLAY, and MOVIEPLEX PLAY

ATLANTA and BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., April 29, 2013 -- Cox Communications has launched the full suite of MOVIEPLEX premium movie services from Starz. Cox subscribers now enjoy MOVIEPLEX, MOVIEPLEX ON DEMAND, and the MOVIEPLEX PLAY authenticated online TV Everywhere service as part of their Cox Advanced TV package.

"Movies are consistently popular with Cox subscribers and we are very pleased to be able to add the MOVIEPLEX channel and on-demand and online offerings to our lineup," said Len Barlik, executive vice president of product management and development for Cox Communications. "MOVIEPLEX PLAY is a great addition to STARZ PLAY and ENCORE PLAY for Cox. These TV Everywhere premium services further increase the value of what we offer Cox TV Online (www.cox.com/tv) and Cox High Speed Internet Bundle customers. Now, they can watch even more of their favorite premium movies anytime, anywhere, as part of the Cox Bundle."

"Cox has done a terrific job in aggressively launching our new TV Everywhere PLAY services, and we are delighted to expand our offerings with them and provide even greater movie content for its subscribers with MOVIEPLEX," said Ed Huguez, President of Affiliate Distribution for Starz. "MOVIEPLEX represents a great value for our distributors and a terrific variety of popular quality movie programming."

The MOVIEPLEX PLAY app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch is available as a free download from the App Store. The MOVIEPLEX PLAY PC/Mac(R) interface is available at www.movieplexplay.com.

MOVIEPLEX PLAY offers robust online access to the best of the quality movie content offered on MOVIEPLEX.

Resume functionality allows the user to seamlessly pick up from where they left off in watching a great movie or TV show on any registered device in the account.

Easy set-up of parental controls provides families with options for limiting content accessibility.
