    10 million subscribers to Epix says you are incorrect.

    Are the streaming agreements Epix wants to sign require that they authenticate with a TV provider? Or would it be a model like Netflix that they can subscribe to it as a standalone?

    No. You may want to do a bit of research on those agreements and how they differ from this situation.

    Nope. No authentication unless you use streaming directly from Epix. None was required for their content through Neflix, nor will it be through Amazon Instant.

    HBO has 41 million customers and has been in Business for almost 40 years

    Epix has 10 million and has been in business less then 5

    Bad investment? I would say no!

    Possibly I do need to. But I think you need to do some also.

    Starz deal with Netflix was exactly what Epix is doing.

    HBO is looking at offering streaming as a standalone product. Will they do it? At some point the answer is yes.

    Here's something to think about. Yes, HBO/Sho have many original shows, most of which are watched by an older demographic for many reasons, not least of which is that the younger crowd is on the 'net and not on the TV. And those younger ones won't really change much as they age since they are already comfortable with the 'net, far beyond what we are.

    HBO and others will in fact address this crowd at some point in time by offering streaming services without a cable/sat tie-in, that is a future fact imo.

    DirecTV announced that they had no interst in Epix in August of 2009. Nothing has changed and Epix has done nothing to increase interest in their product. They created a product after it had been declared extinct. The other premiums evolved and now offer substantial original programming, while Epix abandoned its efforts before producing any at all.

    For all the rumors of boxing's demise, it still remains a very strong draw. HBO/Sho/Epix/ESPN/NBC sports/CBS sports and a slew of others continue to show fights, hell even broadcast had a couple fights recently and that hasn't happened for many, many years.

    Who/what is 'Bellator'???

    Epix was pooh-poohed from the day it came into existence, hell even before it was off the drawing board. Yet in a very few years they grew to about 10 million subscribers from nowhere. That is a sign that most of what you claim is your personal perspective, but not supported by the huge growth is what was claimed to be a sure to fail proposition.

    Will D* ever carry Epix? I think the answer is yes at some point in time, the devil is in the details of exactly how they will carry them.

    The first year Epix was on the air, I didn't have an intrest either.

    I didn't have an intrest in HD, DVR or a computer in 2000 either, doesn't mean I don't like it or have an intrest in it now.

    Epix is exactly the same product (albeit with multiples of itself) it was in 2009 when they initially didn't have any interest in it. It's also the same product it was in 2012 when DirecTV again turned it down. It's still the same old dinosaur offering something that other premiums realized long ago isn't the big draw anymore.
