Blockbuster movies currently on EPIX include 10 Cloverfield Lane, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, The Hunger Games, and Star Trek, among others. They’ve also bundled film franchises like the Bond Collection, Friday the 13th Collection, and the Indiana Jones Collection.
In addition to movies, EPIX programs original series such as Berlin Station and the Golden Globe nominated Graves, original documentaries such as America Divided, and music and comedy acts from artists like Katy Perry, Louis CK, Wanda Sykes.
Available in over 50 million homes nationwide, EPIX is a joint venture between Viacom Inc., its Paramount Pictures unit, Lionsgate and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. (MGM).
