    No, actually you cannot. They have improved that product significantly. Not that you would know...

    Agree wholeheartedly.

    Have access to Epix via (ISP) and Roku Trial that has never expired.

    I wouldn't be offended if Epix was offered by DTV but I can think of a multitude of channels that would be better options than Epix for me singularly and DirecTV in General.

    I'm a little late to the game but I just want to point out, this is NOT the case here. I have Charter for Internet(and phone) only and they have an agreement with Epix that gives us a full subscription to Epix streaming for just being a Charter internet subscriber only. I do not have to be subscribed to the Epix Premium channel.

    Just want to point out the channels all have different start times on the showings, which is good for someone like me who doesn't have On Demand. More options on when I can watch a showing of the movie, instead of waiting 2 hours if there was only one channel showing it.

    Well, they did at least get extended rental periods. Now it's 24, 48 or 72, whereas before it was only 24. I've found most seem to be 48. It's made it a bit easier for me personally having the longer rental periods.

    Hoosier only states facts. He is a fact dropping machine. If you question anything he says you are just questioning the truth. I thought we've already went over this?

    That's cool. I am not so lucky. Blue Ridge cable doesn't even offer epix yet. Last I heard its in talks. So maybe with just having their Internet I may get epix.

    Let's not forget "Hot Tub Time Machine" a while back:D Seriously, not trying to be a smart ass, I really wanted to see it!, EPIX had it. I finally saw the movie on Comedy Central...

    The movie I missed most because of it being on Epix only was Star Trek. Obviously, given their affiliation with their founding studios, there are other movies that won't show up on HBO/CineMax/Showtime/TMC etc. until the 2nd or 3rd round--many years later.

    I don't know any details, but obviously it would seem that perceived value differs between DIRECTV and Epix. Until those are closer, DIRECTV likely won't carry it. Bummer. :)

    Peace,
    Tom

    I don't think five people arguing over the value of a channel will override the analysis directv relies on.

    In what ways did they improve DIRECTV Cinema?

    More starting times of the same movies for those without DVRs?

    Not only have they expanded the content, but they improved the user-end experience and the delivery. You wouldn't be aware of that as a Dish sub of course.
