A Quick Word about Epix®

American premium satellite and cable TV network Epix comes under the ownership of Epix Entertainment LLC. The one thing about Epix that catches the eye the most is its all-round programming.

You can relish original TV shows, documentaries, theatrically released motion pictures, and comedy specials. The channel includes a separate programming block for professional boxing events—the third American premium network to do that in 2011.

Exclusive deals, with big and small indie movie studios, allow Epix to include recent theatrical releases in addition to the film library content which Epix exercises a right on as a privilege—from the network’s original parent corporations. Relative to other premium networks such as HBO®, Cinemax®, SHOWTIME®, and STARZ®, the grace period between a film’s theatrical release and its first pay-tv broadcast, is reduced in case of Epix—which is an edge over competition.

Contrary to the local channel feed where sitting through advertisements becomes unendurable, TV networks like Epix® transform your televisual experience into an extraordinary one. The reason why selecting Epix® together with your primary DIRECTV subscription is a perfect entertainment deal.
