For many, the popular entertainment network EPIX first landed on people’s radar when comedian Louis C.K. debuted his 2010 stand-up special Hilarious on the newly minted network. Hitting at the height of the funnyman’s rise to fame, the special introduced a number of viewers not only to Louis C.K.’s best performance to date, but also to a wide selection of films, concerts and documentaries. Since then, the network has grown considerably and today, TWC has announced that it will be adding EPIX to its national line-up of networks on Tuesday, March 18.
The launch will deliver thousands of movies and original programs to Time Warner Cable customers across four new channels: EPIX, EPIX 2, EPIX 3 and EPIX Drive-in. To celebrate the launch – and to give folks a test-drive of the first-rate content – we’ll be treating our Variety Pass customers to three free months of EPIX, including its multiplex services. The channels will be available in both standard and high-definition with the exception of EPIX Drive-In, currently available only in SD.
Not only is EPIX a linear channel that you can now access at home or On Demand, it also offers a sleek website and mobile app from which to access its robust library of content. The EPIX app is now available for Windows 8, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Roku, Kindle Fire, and via any iOS and Android device. Check out the streaming version online at EPIXHD.com.
Content that TWC subscribers may now watch or stream include blockbusters such as Hunger Games, Skyfall, Star Trek Into Darkness, GI Joe: Retaliation, The Avengers, The Expendables 2, World War Z, Jack Reacher, Red Dawn and more. EPIX also presents original programming including musical concerts featuring Madonna and P!NK, comedy specials from superstar laughers like Patton Oswalt and documentaries such as TWA Flight 800 and Schooled: The Price of College Sports.
