ADD EPIX channel

New Poster

Programing ?

Last night for the first time I saw an Epix program, "Berlin Station".  Will this program continue to be shown?  It was my understanding that Comcast did not carry any Epix programs.  BTW, I enjoyed Berlin Station very much.

People have been asking you, Comcast, to add Epix for three years now.

Why don’t you add it? I’m tired of people telling me how great Berlin Station is. I watch TV on one of my TVs and have no interest in watching on a phone, tablet, or laptop.

Am I going to have to switch to Verizon FiOS just to get a network that people have been requesting from you for three years?

Comcast obviously has access to EPIX because shows are available On Demand for a 

fee.

Re: Epix

If Comcast did add Epix would it be considered a "Premium" channel like HBO, Showtime, Starz??? Just sent my request feedback form to have this channel added to Garden State, NJ line up.

Most likely since it's a subscription service like HBO, Showtime and Starz.

Re: Epix

I guess this is off topic but  I feel sure EPIX would be by subscription since Dog TV is $4.99 a month. LOVEanimals but not going to pay for them to watch tv.

Re: Epix

It looks like we are finally getting the premium channel Epix!

MGM (fully owner of Epix) and Comcast has hammered out a new distribution deal. The channel should be available early 2018.

So does this mean it would be at additional cost like HBO,etc?

Of course. It will probably be an add-on. Kind of like how The Movie Channel ($13) is at the moment. Or they could include it in current or new tiers but at an additional cost.

 

I’m sure one of the Xfinity team members on this forum will update this topic with additional info.

Well I am not going to add it if it costs although it seems like a good channel to have. I am going to say quietly (ha ha) that the Movie Channel has come back to us for free more than once. We lost it for a long time and then it magically appeared again and I just checked and yep we have it and I tuned to it and voila!

Re: Epix

It looks like this is only for X1 customers. This seems to imply it will use IP instead of regular linear cable for distribution.

I have X1 and top tier channel lineup. Do you mean it will only be over the internet and not on the cable channel lineup? I ask that because to me IP means Internet Protocol.

Re: Epix

“They're defying all odds to launch a bold service, called Epix, that hopes to break into the premium TV business long dominated by HBO, Showtime and Starz.”

If Epix is indeed considered a “premium“ channel, that means we will have to pay extra to get it on Xfinity.

Since I pay almost $200 a month already to Comcast, that is not going to happen for me. Berlin Station just isn’t worth it.
