They only had it offered as an addition at a cost. They declined. That's what was reported. Saying they got the right to it makes it sound as if something changed. Epix has been available since it launched and DirecTV has never agreed to carry it. Epix started out as overpriced and then shot themselves in the foot with their Netflix deal which watered down their value to providers.
They have an position on it. It did change. They set a price. Directv has not to date exercised that option. That is all correct. If they want to put it on tomorrow they can. last year, they would have had to reach an agreement. It is the same as the plex channels.
