Encore Reaches 25M Mark


Starz Entertainment Group LLC’s Encore reached a milestone.

The network now has 25 million subscribers, the programmer said Tuesday.

“This milestone demonstrates the continuing power of movies to draw audiences,” Starz Entertainment CEO Robert B. Clasen said in a prepared statement. “Encore has evolved from a channel with favorite older movies to the destination for a wide range of movies, from Driving Miss Daisy and Weird Science to the 2004 Academy Award-winner for Best Picture, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.”
