EPIX Channel

With the EPIX channel being made available today, is it included in any packages or does it require an additional $5.99 a month to everyone if they want it?

According to the notice given in a recent billing statement, it's $5.99/Mo.  Separate Fee.

Not sure if this is the way it is for now or if the plan is to add the other 3 Epix channels to the cable lineup eventually, but I noticed the stream app has Epix ,Epix 2, Epix Drive-In and the other one.

Re: EPIX Channel

So i guess its not included in any packages then?  I have the highest package available and i still can't get the channel without paying an extrra $5.99?  No thanks.

Re: EPIX Channel

I also don't see the channel listed on the stream app.  Did it get removed?

Re: EPIX Channel

That is crazy! When I had Verizon Fios Epix was included in the complete package. Since I've had Xfinity, I've had less HD channels and pay 240 a month for the "complete" package that doesn't include everything. They should change the name to the "sort of complete" package. I guess I will have to rethink my cable provider.

Re: EPIX Channel

Totally agree. Why should someone have the top tier package that includes every channel if it doesn’t actually include every channel?

Re: EPIX Channel

I just had a very long and tedious chat with comcast about this issue. I pay for the "digital premium" package which is supposed to include all the movie channels, but it apparently doesn't include epix unless I want to pay another $70 a year. I got some nonsense explanation about comcast not being able to control what they charge, because "Broadcast" determines the charge. Yet, on my bill, I am already charged for "Broadcast". 

 

Did you all know that Comcast is not really in charge? "Broadcast" is in charge! I guess being a $70 billion company isn't enough. "Broadcast" must be even more valuable.

 

Very disappointed in this. Oh well. Time to start looking for other options!

Re: EPIX Channel

If you are making it an "A la carte" (which is really dumb given that a lot of people pay a very high amount for the "premium" package which apparently is not premium enough), then please remove it from the channel lineup, and please remove the movies that are on it from the searches and listings of most popular movies and critics choice movies.

 

This was very poorly conceived. Better to just not offer the channel.

Re: EPIX Channel

I'm not concerned about paying Comcast another dime for EPIX and don't want it anyway!  But, what I am concerned about, as are others (see TCM (Turner Classic Movies)  website now owned by AT & T Time Warner IS FACT TCM ON DEMAND DOES NOT OFFER MOVIES AFTER AIRING. THEY INCLUDE A MINIMAL FEW  AND NOT ALL IN SD AND HD.  BUT, SOME IN SD ONLY AND SOME IN HD ONLY.  IF COMCAST CAN'T UNDERSTAND AND RESOLVE WITH TCM ----------- IT WILL BE GOODBYE COMCAST AS I WILL BE FORCED TO USE AT & t'S DIRECT TV THAT HAS ALL TCM MOVIES AFTER AIRING.  POINT, BEING WHEN ALL TITLES WERE IN ON DEMAND THEY COULD  BE WATCHED AT CONVENIENT TIME ---NOT AT 3:00 AM OR OTHER TIMES WHEN AIRED.  I PAY A HEFTY FEE MONTHLY TO COMCAST/XFINITY FOR ACCESS TO TCM. 

 

CAN OR WILL COMCAST RESOLVE THIS WITH TCM OR NOT?  I'VE POSTED THIS SUBJECT IN ON DEMAND COMCAST SITE. AM FED UP WITH COMCAST RAISING RATES BUT DROPPING SERVICES I.E. TCM ON DEMAND.

Re: I doubt Comcast could care less!

FYI. I doubt Comcast could care less!

The Maltese Falcon was aired yesterday but, of course, not in On DEMAND. However, if you use SEARCH and enter Maltese Falcon -------------- there it is for RENT at $3.99 to $12.99 HD and SD.

 

So again, what will Comcast do about this?

The agreement was made to make the channel separate when the channel was added.

I wouldn't even pay 59 Cents (plus taxes and Comcast fees).    Should be in  my Premier  Package I already pay a fortune  for.
