    "AT&T Inc. said it reached a multiyear agreement with Viacom Inc. for the media giant to continue providing programming to AT&T’s U-verse TV and DirecTV U.S. subscribers."

    "Financial terms of the pact with Viacom weren’t provided, but in its news release Monday, AT&T said the agreement entitles AT&T’s satellite and IPTV platforms to the “best deal in the industry” for Viacom’s TV brands."

    No word of how EPIX is factored in, if at all, just yet.

    I've wanted Epix for years so I certainly hope we will finally get the channels.

    I wonder if that means that DirecTV will be able to start carrying CMT pure and all the other MTV channels and the other vh1 channel

    It would be nice to have Epix on DTV, but now that Epix has streaming deals with Amazon and Hulu, it's not really necessary. If DTV will carry it, I hope they got it at a nice cheap price considering that all of their customers that stream can already get those movies elsewhere.

    Those streaming deals are all the more reason those channels need to be packaged as hbo is and not lumped into other packages at a set price, otherwise they arent worth squat to Directyv because they would just add cost only.
