STARZ Apple TV app has elevated black levels and this hasn’t been fixed in over a year!

Almost a year ago I was watching the STARZ originals show Power when I noticed that the video didnt look quite right on my OLED TV.

The STARZ intro sequence and the video overall looked like it had a gray haze over it.

To watch the show as it is intended to look I ended up watching it by using the STARZ app built into the LG OLED TV.

Now, almost a year later I watched the premiere of Highlander and to my suprise – The issue still isnt fixed!

Luckily, there is a workaround.

Apple TV has what are called Apple TV channels – These use thier own content (STARZ gives Apple the video file, Apple uploads it) and the STARZ Apple TV channel does not have the elevated black level. Here’s a quick comparison between the two.

I wonder how many people are watching shows on the STARZ app without even knowing they are seeing incorrect video.
