In 2012, Liberty Media announced that Starz would spin-off Liberty Starz into a separate company, and rename the company to Starz. The spin-off completed in January 2013.


Starz 2016

Starz rebranded its logo in April 2016 alongside Starz HD, Starz Comedy, Starz Kids & Family, Starz Distribution, Starz Entertainment, Starz in Black and Starz Cinema, and the star was removed for the first time. As a result, Starz even changed the Encore channels and renamed them Starz Encore. In addition, the text had been reverted back to using uppercase letters for the first time since 2005, when the 1994 logo (which had used all caps) got retired.

In December 2016, the company was accquired by Lions Gate Entertainment, and was eventually folded into its parent company in February 2019, which was subsequently renamed SLG Inc.
