Not all new movies come to Directv first due to not having EPIX. As a result some films don't come tell commercials have been inserted.

Epix is available on Roku and also on Amazon Prime recently signed a deal for the rights to stream their titles.Bambler said:I never even heard of Epix, but I just googled it and went to their website and saw a fairly decent mix of first-run movies, at least better than what's found on Showtime IMO.
HBO and Starz use to have all of the big box office first-run movies, I guess they still do, but I really don't follow movies as much as I use to.
However, I remember the days of me contemplating buying a DVD or waiting for it to hit HBO and from what I remember, most studios are different in how they release their movies in terms of timing, with some delaying it up to a year after it hits DVD, I think, while others will sell it quickly to these stations. But yeah, there's really nothing out there that discusses this and so many movies (that are "great" but not necessarily big box office hits) that never even make it anywhere beyond DVD.
Epix is available on Roku if you have a subscription through you Sat or Cable provider.sigma1914 said:Epix is available on Roku and also on Amazon Prime recently signed a deal for the rights to stream their titles.
Sign up for the free 14 day trial. I did it during a free weekend for Dish (I have DirecTV) and it stuck.joed32 said:Epix is available on Roku if you have a subscription through you Sat or Cable provider.
Epix is basically Paramount studios, a bit of Lion's Gate, etc....movies.domingos35 said:Epix is better than any of the premium channels like HBO etc ,etc
Would be nice to have though still.Satelliteracer said:To each their own, but they are definitely not the same in content, breadth of programming etc,. As an example, HBO has 10 channels on D* plus all the past seasons original episodes on VOD. If Epix were to appear on D*, it would at max be 4 channels (that's all they have) and basically we're talking movies and some niche boxing (super heavy weight for example).
All different, all serving different types of constituencies.
Don't forget, Satelliteracer, that Starz has the contract with Disney for first run on all their movies.Satelliteracer said:Starz even has some original series...Boss is outstanding, one of the best on television, but they are primarily a movie distributor.
