What Happened To EPIX Channel?


If you’re wondering what happened to EPIX channel it has been rebranded as MGM+ beginning on January 15, 2023. The premium EPIX movie network existed from 2009–2023 and included a suite of channels named Epix2, Epix Hits, and Epix Drive-In.

That suite of channels has all been rebranded with the MGM mark and are aptly named MGM+ network, MGM+ channel, MGM+ Marquee, MGM+ Hits, and MGM+ Drive-In. The logos have all re-branded with the trademark MGM gold and black color palette.

MGM+ is available on mobile and streaming devices as well as through traditional cable and satellite services. If you were subscribed to EPIX the transition should be seamless (with the exception of the different logos).

A bit of a branding transition. You’ll notice the EPIX logo (shown above) had been sporting a new golden dot above the “i” which is the recognizable color of MGM Studios. The injection of color was part of a strategy intended to help subscribers get used to the brand transition. You’ll notice the other channels mentioned above have also undergone a color palette update.

The streaming app for MGM+ is available on Apple iPhone, iPad and Apple TV, Google Android and Android TV devices, Amazon Fire TV, and Roku devices.

MGM+ costs $5.99 per month with a 7-day trial, or for a limited time $49.99 for a full year subscription.  

MGM+ features movies such as Hercules, Three Thousand Years of Longing, A Simple Favor, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and almost two dozen James Bond franchise films including No Time To Die (2021), Skyfall (2012), Casino Royale (2006), and Quantum of Solace (2008).
