Epix and Epix HD will be shown on Cox networks starting in April 2010, after a deal was reached between the premium movie channel and the third largest cable television provider in the U.S.
“The video business is evolving, especially the way in which customers consume movies, and the movie products they value” said Bob Wilson, senior vice president of programming for Cox.
Epix is a joint venture between Viacom, Paramount, Lionsgate and MGM which is already available on Verizon’s FiOS TV service. Dish Network has been rumored to be in negotiations with Epix, but nothing concrete has been stated.
The channel provides blockbuster movies such as Star Trek, GI Joe, and Paranormal Activity as well as comedy, music and original programming.
No agreement terms were disclosed between Cox and Epix.
