    It looks like Epix was quietly added to Premier recently. After realizing I was receiving the channels I stumbled across this page which now lists it alongside the other premiums: https://www.att.com/directv/premier-package/[​IMG]

    Selecting the page you posted brings up information about AT&T Internet. I have the Premiere Package, EPIX and Movies Extra. I just checked my AT&T/DIRECTV account and it still shows EPIX as a add-on for $5.99 per month.

    That is from imgbb which is a image uploading service and not directly from DIRECTV. Passing storm is currently causing rain fade at my location preventing me to check for messages from DIRECTV regarding what you are reporting. I will try again later.

    Interestingly when you go to DIRECTV.com and select Channel Lineup it lists EPIX included in all packages.

    Rain fade is over. No messages about EPIX being offered with Premiere Package.

    Can you authenticate on the app or Epix website?

    My DIRECTV equipment...HR54-200 (0x159a)...C61K-700 (0x1582)...I subscribe to Premier, EPIX and Movies Extra Pack. All three EPIX channels are working and same can be said for the EPIX app.

    I checked DIRECTV.com again and it still shows EPIX included with all packages yet my AT&T/DIRECTV account still lists EPIX as an add-on for $5.99 per month and no messages about EPIX being offered with Premier.

    Well -perhaps depending on your "Bill" date it may be updated --but my best guess is that it will no longer be a line item charge --the Price will still be included in Premier total cost + the $10+ increase coming in Jan 2022 --Yeah --it's now included in our Premier package :thumbsup:

    DIRECTV.com channel lineup still lists EPIX included in all packages (Entertainment, Choice, Ultimate and Premier).

    I have the Premiere package and have never subscribed to EPIX so I went to their website and logged in via the provider login page with my DirecTV credentials. It accepted the login and asked me to create an EPIX account. I did that and I can now watch all content on the EPIX website. I can't check on my DirecTV system at the moment as I am at work but I can watch EPIX now.

    Been on Premiere for nearly two decades. Nuthin' on the receivers here, yet...

    They did roll the "Advanced Receiver DVR" $10.00 fee into the cost of Premiere a couple years ago or so (still have the $10.00 HD separate fee, though).

    I was thinking of eventually subscribing for a while. The on-demand looks to be 1080p, which would be nice.

    I'm in the same boat, 23 years on Premier but I don't really want to create yet another account if I do not have to. I just 'refreshed receiver' on DirecTV.com and those channels are still greyed out. While on the site, I checked 'My Programming' and it still lists EPIX at $5.99/mth.

    The EPIX channels do not show up on my DirecTV App, and I do not have an account with EPIX and have no desire to create one unless it gets me linear channels on my DirecTV setup. We are not a big on-demand family with our unstable Spectrum Internet here where we live.

    I'm on AT&T so I have to login to their piece of crap website. If I try to look at My Programming there it puts me into a death spiral of a spinning mouse cursor that it never recovers from. Typical AT&T.

    Death spiral, Death Star- I get it. That would suck.

    Well they are at least consistent. Trying to view channel addons on either the att.com website or the MyATT app on my phone gives me the Death Spiral of locking everything up. I love AT&T. :confused:
