The special offer won’t be available long, so take advantage while you can!

In addition to excellent movies — like Bad Boys for Life, Spiral: From the Book of Saw, The Equalizer 2, Matilda, Bloodshot, and many others — you can also catch a host of high-production, obsessable TV shows on Starz. Exclusives include the Power series, Heels, Blindspotting, P-Valley, American Gods, High Town, and beyond. In fact, Starz is one of the best streaming services for lovers of both movies and TV shows, original productions notwithstanding. We’ve even put together some lists to help you find the best shows on Starz, as well as the best movies on Starz, all streaming now.

Starz is available for streaming on nearly all devices, from computers, tablets, and smartphones to smart TVs and streaming devices. The list of support devices is quite long, and even includes game consoles like the Xbox One and Xbox Series. That also makes it incredibly easy to gift as you don’t have to worry about your family, or friends, not having a compatible device.

What’s more, being able to watch all those movies and TV shows on the go will be a super-convenient and enjoyable experience if you’re traveling for the holidays. Whether you’re taking a long road trip, bus ride, or flying, you’ll always have something to watch. Thanks to the new deal, which drops the price of your first three months, there’s no reason not to subscribe. Head on over to Starz and sign up now. You can always see your next billing date from your account in the Starz app or website — under My Subscription — so it’s easy to change anytime.

When computer company Apple announced that it was getting into the streaming TV game, there were plenty of people who were skeptical about the company's ability to pull it off. Why would the tech giant, which is most known for the Macintosh and the iPhone, have any credibility in making television shows? It doesn't seem the two ideas would mesh in any meaningful way, but in the years since Apple TV Plus launched, the company has come up with some pretty impressive original shows, and it picked up a Best Picture Oscar on top of that.
What's even more impressive is that these Apple TV shows and movies run the gamut from comedy to drama, and are all set in wildly different and imaginative places. Apple may be best known for making great phones, but it turns out it knows how to tell pretty interesting stories, too. These Apple TV movies and shows are the cream of the crop and the best on this streaming service.

What does ‘No Contest’ mean in UFC? A simple explanation
ufc 271 channel adesanya vs whittaker head to

A no contest decision in UFC fighting can seem fairly confusing if you don't know how things can play out. Simply put, a no contest ruling means that neither of the fighters can be declared the winner. This may sound initially unfair, but like many rules in sports it will once you know the basics. We thought we'd help you out by providing some insight into what it means and how it affects the outcome. While a UFC bout can end via submission, technical knockout, knockout, forfeit, judges' decision, and disqualification, no contest can also happen once in a while.
What is a UFC 'No Contest' decision?
Effectively, a no contest tends to happen due to reasons which are outside of at least one of the fighter's control. This can include an accidental illegal strike that results in an injury such as a mistaken eye poke which can force a competitor to withdraw from the fight. If that happens, neither fighter wins and the bout ends. However, if it is found that the illegal strike was intentional then the bout ends with a forfeit and a loss against the person who inflicted the injury.

A no contest can also be due to a fighter sustaining an injury in the middle of the fight due to an accidental foul. This decision is up to the referee who must decide on the severity of the injury at the time. The referee also plays a role in the case of double knockouts, ring issues, and third-party interventions in the bout, and can also be forced to rule the fight as a no contest in these cases.

This is what would happen if an asteroid hit Earth
Watch this scary video simulation of an asteroid's impact on earth
Earth as seen from outer space

You've seen the scenario in movies and TV shows: There's an asteroid headed for the planet, and it's threatening to wipe out all life on the planet. Of all the mysteries of what's out there in space, there's something uniquely terrifying about the prospect of a chunk of rock heading toward us fast enough to smash into Earth. Now you can enjoy a lovingly rendered video showing the destruction that might occur if such an impact were ever to happen.
Watch what would happen if an asteroid collided with Earth
A now-removed viral post on the Absolute Units subreddit shows what would happen to the planet if the largest known asteroid were to collide with the planet. Unsurprisingly, the 338-mile/545-kilometer-wide space rock would totally annihilate every living thing on Earth, destroying vast landscapes and covering the planet in smoke and fire. You can also view the full video (set to Pink Floyd’s “The Great Gig in the Sky.”)

Massive destruction
An asteroid hitting Earth is called an impact event. And while these are rare, the effects of one would be massively damaging to all life on the planet—and the asteroid wouldn’t need to be 338 miles across to do so. Even smaller asteroids can cause incredible destruction.
