Starz also develops, produces and acquires entertainment content and distributes this content to consumers in a wide variety of formats in the United States and throughout the world.

ANLBC faces competition from many alternative forms of leisure entertainment. ANLBC competes with other sporting and live events for game day attendance, which is integral to ANLBC's ticket, concession and souvenir sales revenue. TruePosition faces competition from Commscope and smaller providers, which provide similar location-based product and services to TrueProsition. SIRIUS XM faces significant competition for both listeners and advertisers. In addition to pre-recorded entertainment purchased or playing in cars, homes and using portable players, SIRIUS XM competes with numerous other providers of radio or other audio services. Providers of internet, telephony and satellite service are subject to varying degrees of regulation in the United States by the Federal Communications Commission and other entities and in foreign countries by similar regulators.
