Starz (STRZA) had been barred from holding sales talks for a year after being spun off by Liberty Media (LMCA), according to sources, but with the company set to mark one year as a standalone company next week there has been renewed gossip about whether it will seek a suitor this year, said the New York Post. The most obvious suitor for Starz is Cablevision (CVC) CEO James Dolan, who also controls AMC Networks (AMCX), but other potential partners that "continually crop up" include CBS (CBS), Viacom (VIA) and 21st Century Fox (FOXA), according to the report.
