    Epix doesn't have a 4k linear feed right now the only way to watch their content in 4k Ultra HD is to use their app and a supporting device such as Apple TV 4k, Roku that supports 4k, etc. All questions/answers about their 4k content can be found here.

    From my understanding unless your LG TV is running the Android TV software you most likely will need a streaming device to access their app. If you are an Apple user (i.e. iPhone/iPad/Mac) an Apple TV isn't a bad investment as it opens up a world of possibilities with Apple's eco-system. Alternatively if you currently have a game console like an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 you can use one of them to use the app.

    Currently the CSRs just have the same information that we have that Epix is available on DirecTV for $5.99/mo on channels 558-560. They won't know any information about Epix on Demand or access to Epix.com/Epix app until the feature launches. The only extra info they have right now is when a free preview will take place.

    If you subscribe to Epix through DirecTV your best bet to gain access to Epix.com & the Epix app is to email Epix Customer Support, identify yourself as a DirecTV subscriber and ask when will D* be available. In my case and from what I've seen in others they have been giving out VIP/Trial accounts until D* is added to the list officially.

    What about on-screen graphics - any channel bug, promos, split-screen credits, or other annoyances during programs?

    Channel bugs appear during broadcasts. I haven't seen split-screen credits or promos during broadcasts.

    I got the free guest password from Epix last night and settled down to watch season 1 of Berlin Station. I'm using the Amazon Firetv app. Some episodes played fine and others froze, skipped, and refused to download properly. Not really impressed with the app so far. I haven't had these problems when watching anything else on Amazon just with the Epix app.

    Thanks. That means I definitely won't be subscribing.

    FYI Epix On Demand now available on channel 1558 includes "The Vault" section for older titles as well.

    Epix.com / Epix app login still unavailable at this time.

    Any idea why DirecTV is not on the list of providers for the Epix app?

    Just posted this on another thread:

    I recorded "Operation Finale", anyone notice a five second skip forward, happened about four or five times during the movie, I have never seen this on any other channel. It would jump forward and you lost five or ten seconds of the movie.

    Thanks, one skip forward I remember, when the main character played by Oscar Isaac visits Melanie Laurent in the hospital to recruit her for the mission, right before she agrees to go, seated in the office, you miss a key part of the dialogue before she changes her mind.

    I had just watched the movie and it did have a couple picture break ups. Also 2 thirds into the movie it did jump to another scene probably my recording was the same time you watched.

    Thanks, I think it was the same time, just recorded "Reservoir Dogs", no such glitches, it appears as if this is a network issue and not our dvr's dying which is good.
