    I am going to guess that Epix, if it gets added (and I don’t think it boasts the problems of Pac–12 Network), will be handled like HBO, Cinemax, Starz, and Showtime—as an optional premium-movie programmer, yes, but also made available in Premiere.

    I am currently subscribed to Epix Now through my streaming device Apple TV. Cost is $5.99 per month. (I will include two pics, below.)

    With availability of HD Movie Pack currently at $5 per month, I would figure that package would have to get reworked in order to include Epix. That would affect the pricing (say, at $9.99). So, I would guess Epix will not be part of HD Movie Pack.

    It's telling if anything happens to MGM HD. I don't see any purpose for the channel under Lionsgate now that they have a premium network, and the dropping of Comcast and Spectrum (legacy TWC/BHN) seems to confirm the channel is doomed.

    We won't know until there's an announcement or it appears in the apps a few days (or hours) prior to them going live at 6am ET.

    Did anyone see the messages on your DVR about upcoming channel changes? Att.com/tvchannelupsates

    A few things being added to most packages, Nick Jr being removed, etc.

    Nippon TV brings the very best of Nippon TV to the US. The channel is home to Nippon TV's #1 rated drama series and variety shows along with the world famous Yumiuri Giants baseball games. All exclusively on DIRECTV.

    I'm assuming Nippon HD will be only available with international packages and not for those of us with Ultimate/Premiere/etc?

    EPIX is not available on DIRECTV until May 19th ... so it is not included in anything today.

    All signs point to it being a la carte and not in Premier. We'll find out Sunday if the signs are right (although there may be a free preview - so read "Epix is included in Entertainment" accordingly).

    Regarding Epix:

    I don’t know if this is case with all…my account shows an offer for Epix for a free preview for three months. After that, it would be $5.99 per month.

    CNN INTERNATIONAL is in the guide, channel 358. Is this available in certain packages or is it alacart like Epix? Also, really don’t know why it’s not in HD.

    Because as has been said in other threads many times it’s not available to anyone in Hi Definition in the US. They have no feed for providers in Hi Definition.
