    I just got an email from AT&T stating that my order has been processed and that I'm getting three months of Epix for free. The channels are still inactive, so I guess I'll have to call them tomorrow. This is just nuts, it would be funny if it wasn't so pathetic.

    There is no 4k UHD feed for Epix currently its all done through the Epix app. At the moment where Epix just launched on D* they haven't added us to the app yet but when I emailed Epix about it they said "Support for logging in to EPIX.com and the EPIX apps is coming very soon." I suspect its something to do with the whole TV Everywhere thing.

    I noticed this message on the EPIX website this morning "Welcome to EPIX! We're excited you're here and we can't wait to offer our DIRECTV subscribers access to EPIX.com and the EPIX apps. Check back soon or contact EPIX Customer Support for more assistance". It appears we'll have access to the EPIX app sooner than later.

    Yeah ...

    Even though when EPIX adds DIRECTV, I'm sure like with the HBOgo app, my DIRECTV login credentials won't work for the EPIX app on my OTA TiVo DVR.

    It'll just be another "Device not supported" when I try it ....

    If one wants to subscribe to Epix but also use its app to watch some non-linear content—well, does this mean “wait a little while”?

    (I am subscribed to Premere. I like going to, say, HBO Go or Showtime Anytime if I am after a certain title.)

    It means the Epix app won’t work with your Directv login yet (won’t have access right now)...

    i saw Epix offered on the DTV website under extras near Sunday ticket. The price was $5.xx per month for 3 channels. I was tempted to click the activate button but got cold feet because I have no idea if the content is any good.

    He can also use his DIRECTV remote to see a list of Epix content. GUIDE - Epix channel - Arrow left to channel number - Press INFO. A long list of upcoming broadcasts will appear.

    If you have Amazon Prime, it looks like they share the same movie library. EPIX seems to get movies a couple months earlier though?

    Epix does get new movies (well movies that have finished their PPV run) earlier than HBO, Showtime and Starz. Also if you want to try Epix for free or in my case catch up on the original series like Deep State, Berlin Station, etc. just use up the free trials for Epix Now lol. I'm currently using the Epix Now app on my Amazon Fire TV stick free for 7 days and I have caught up on Deep State (now my DVR is set to record the rest) and I have watched some of their older comedy specials like Craig Ferguson: Just Being Honest. o_O

    I did look at the guide but I was more interested in their overall catalog of shows versus just what is on for the next two weeks.
    I will have to check out the info button, I did not even know about that feature. Techguy88 gave me a bit of a run down on what to expect but as others have pointed out I really need to look at their website also so I can get more details, especially on original programming.

    Two HD Epix channels are showing in the channels I get” filter and they are illuminated, not greyed. Excited that maybe there was a free preview, upon tuning to either of these channels it shows the call or click to order screen.

    For me all three were luminated under the CIG filter before I subscribed to them, and they all still gave me the order screen.

    As I've said before on another thread. ...

    DIRECTV has never gotten the CIG filter to fully work right. So if you always want consistency there you really have to set-up favorite ch. lists.
