EPIX and AT&T’s DirecTV have finally come to a distribution agreement. The premium channel suite will be available starting May 19 for $5.99 per month and will include access on both DirecTV and DirecTV Now services.
The network was previously available on AT&T’s U-verse, competing satellite service Dish, Comcast, and other major TV service providers.
“It’s an exciting moment of growth for us as we build a brand that delivers a superior customer experience with high-powered, premium original series,” said Epix president Michael Wright.
“With its growing lineup of original programming, Epix is a great addition for our DirecTV customers,” said AT&T’s senior exec VP and chief content officer, Dan York.
Launched in 2008, Epix was a joint venture between Paramount Pictures, MGM and Lionsgate until MGM paid $1B for the shared interests in 2017.
The network recently launched a standalone streaming service called EPIX Now, also for a monthly subscription fee of $5.99.
Financial terms of the carriage deal were not disclosed by either party.
