– The TV network is the primary topic. The disambiguation page, to be titled "Starz (disambiguation)," would serve as an appropriate and sufficient hatnote. Wikipedical (talk) 21:22, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Oppose sorry the evidence of the dab page is that there is no primary. In ictu oculi (talk) 22:27, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
    • What evidence are you referring to? In terms of pageviews:
  • Starz Inc. has been viewed 5976 times in the last 90 days.
  • Starz (TV channel) has been viewed 28755 times in the last 90 days.
  • Starz (TV network) has been viewed 37807 times in the last 90 days.
  • Starz Distribution has been viewed 2535 times in the last 90 days.
  • Starz TV has been viewed 3360 times in the last 90 days.
  • Starz (band) has been viewed 5215 times in the last 90 days.
  • Starz (magazine) has been viewed 249 times in the last 90 days.
  • Starz (album) has been viewed 1173 times in the last 90 days.
The pageviews are on the side of the TV network as the primary topic. I would also argue that it easily has the greatest enduring notability and educational value than the others as it is the flagship channel of Starz Inc., and the band and magazine aren't widely known. If someone is referring to "Starz," would you really argue there's confusion? I would also look at Google results, as Starz the network is the overwhelming primary topic. -- Wikipedical (talk) 03:09, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
I'm just referring to the fact that the way articles are split up indicates no primary. Looks from results as if (TV channel) is helping readers find it as well. In ictu oculi (talk) 03:15, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Support, Starz (TV network) is clearly the primary topic here. Starz Inc. (a brief, mergeable stub about the company owning the network) and Starz Distribution (the relevant production company) are related but secondary, they don't reach the level of notability and coverage the TV channel has in its own. In terms of pageviews, the official title Starz (TV network) has been viewed 37807 times in the last 90 days, while the redirect Starz (TV channel) 28755 times, the redirect STARZ! 2020 times plus several hundreds came from the other redirect terms. Our readers are clearly saying which is the primary topic. Checking "Starz" on Google, the first result is the TV channel's official site, and the second is the WP article Starz (TV network), significantly above the WP dab page. Using the search engine of Wikipedia, when I write "Starz" it appears Starz (TV network) as first suggestion. "Starz Inc." has less than 100 incoming links, "Starz Distribution" lass than 50, "Starz (TV network)" has about one thousand. Cavarrone 06:00, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Support. Starz Inc., Starz (TV channel), Starz (TV network), and Starz Distribution are not separate topics, but are subtopics of one specific topic, a single company with various subsidiaries. Those links collectively amount to about 75,000 views in the last 90 days, while all the rest combine to add up to only about 10,000, a fraction of the total. I agree that Starz Inc. and Starz (TV network) can be merged into a single clear primary topic at Starz. bd2412 T 17:08, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
