Starz is offering all 16 first-season episodes of its Outlander series free through April 10, giving new and return viewers a chance to catch up before the April 9 debut of Season 2. The free Season 1 sampling is available via Starz linear, on-demand and/or online with select cable, satellite and telco affiliates, as well as Starz.com, Starz On Demand and the Starz Play app in the U.S.
The promotion is part of the Starz “Obsessable” marketing campaign featuring a new on-air/online logo and graphic identity. The 13-episode Second 2 of the time-tripping action tale kicks off at 9 PM Saturday, April 9, on Starz. The new season picks up after the events of Season 1, with Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) arriving in France, intent on infiltrating the Jacobite rebellion led by Prince Charles Stuart and stopping the battle of Culloden.
The program is adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s book series and executive produced by Ronald D. Moore (Star Trek: The Next Generation).
