"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.
