Starz (formerly Fizz TV) is a digital satellite TV channel, owned by Cloud Television One Limited. It is available through Sky within the United Kingdom and Ireland on channel 371.

The output of the station is music videos from a range of genres that are currently popular in the charts. This is unlike its sister channel Channel AKA, which is more focused on Grime and UK hip hop. The channel also has a heavy interactive texting element, through the viewers being able to send in text messages and pictures to show on screen. After 10pm, Starz TV broadcasts Full on Starz where viewers are allowed to send in explicit pictures and the channel is allowed to play explicit videos.

The parent company of Channel U and Fizz TV went into voluntary liquidation at the beginning of February 2009, before being purchased by Mushroom TV. When purchasing the two channels, Mushroom TV agreed that Channel U and Fizz TV should be rebranded. The two channels were rebranded as Channel AKA and Starz TV on 16 March 2009.

On 22 June 2012, Mushroom TV entered liquidation.[1] Ofcom's television broadcast licensing update for May 2012, indicates that Starz TV was sold to Cloud Television One Limited.[2]
