However, when the two combine in the form of streaming services offering shows normally on TV cable only, a good synthesis of shows is born. Therefore, TV is far from dead, and these Starz shows can be streamed through Hulu and Amazon Prime as of now. Additionally, for our Hulu picks, visit: Hulu Originals- Best 11 Shows
