STARZ to Split OUTLANDER’s First Season, Release the Series Premiere Early

July 11, 2014 by  

STARZ will make the pilot for their new series, OUTLANDER, available on August 2nd via “multiple television and online platforms nationwide,” a full week before its official August 9th launch.

“We’ve heard from fans the world over who are anxiously awaiting to see how we’ve brought Claire and Jamie to life in what may possibly be the most highly anticipated series in Starz history,” said Starz CEO Chris Albrecht prior to the company’s presentation at the Summer Television Critics Association (TCA) Press Tour. “Our ‘Outlander’ sampling strategy serves the dual purpose of giving early access to the series premiere for those fans thirsting to watch it as soon as possible, as well as providing a vehicle that introduces the STARZ experience to prospective new subscribers who are eager to learn all about this great new series.”

Additionally, OUTLANDER’s 16-episode first season will be split into two parts: the first half of the season will air through September 27, and the second half is currently scheduled to air in early 2015.
