In February, MGM launched a streaming service for its premium channel Epix called Epix Now for iOS and Android users. The service is now available on Roku and Amazon Fire TV.
Epix Now provides users with a wide range of programming to subscribers for $5.99 a month. Programs that include films like J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek, Alex Garland’s Annihilation, and Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival; original content such as Berlin Station and Deep State; and more to come, including a Batman prequel series called Pennyworth and an adaptation of Slate’s podcast Slow Burn.
Last year, MGM began selling subscriptions to Epix through the Roku Channel alongside channels like Showtime and Starz, in a similar manner to the Prime Video Channels offered by Amazon. Apple has also confirmed that Epix will be one of its premium Apple TV Channels when those launch in May, so users will be able to stream the channel’s content directly from the Apple TV app.
I signed up for Epix Now when it launched last month, and I’ve generally been impressed with its catalog, and I’ve been slowly working through Berlin Station. Now, I won’t be limited to just watching on my iPad.
