Todd Hoy was promoted to Vice President, Business & Legal Affairs – Distribution for Starz from his previous position as Senior Counsel.  Hoy is responsible for supporting business and legal affairs with affiliates for all of Starz' linear, on-demand and online authenticated services, including STARZ ON DEMAND and STARZ PLAY.  Prior to joining Starz in 2011, Hoy served as corporate counsel for DISH, supporting business and legal affairs for programming, including linear, pay-per-view, video-on-demand, online authentication, interactive television and advertising sales.

Beabout commented, "Kevin has been a strong leader in the Business & Legal Affairs group and demonstrated a keen understanding of the respective Starz business and the legal matters affecting their operations during this aggressive period of growth and new activity. Similarly, Todd has proven to be an invaluable contributor for the core Starz pay TV business, with a great understanding of business matters for our respective distribution agreements and relations. I congratulate both on their well-deserved promotions."
