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.

"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.

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.
