    I Was looking around the netflix website on my MacBook and ran across the starz live tv option. Of course being on a MacBook without bootcamp installed I wasn't able to view it. Is anyone familiar with this? Is it actually the same live starz that would be on cable at that moment? The reason I am mentioning in it here in the apple tv section is I was curious to know if people thought that this option would be something that will eventually make it's way to apple tv or not in the future.

    I believe Starz live is what they call the movies on netflix that are a part of the starz network.

    No, it's something separate. I can go to the starz section and watch movies, but I can't with starz live.

    Edit: just found it, it is for fact a live starz channel feed. To use on a Mac you have to use firefox browser. Now that I know for fact what it is, does anyone feel like this will come to apple tv??

    Apparently it's PC only, I never even knew this was available and I've had Netflix for years

    What are the system requirements for the Starz TV channel?

    To watch the Starz TV channel, you need a PC with the following minimum requirements:

    * Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or higher, or Windows Vista
    * Internet Explorer version 6 or higher
    * Windows Media Player version 11 (DRM version 5145) or later
    * An active broadband connection to the Internet
    * 1.0 GHz processor
    * 512 MB RAM
    * 3 GB free hard disk drive space
