Comcast to Launch Epix June 13

Comcast said it will launch premium channel Epix to Xfinity TV customers across the country on June 13, making good on a carriage deal the two reached in November.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but with the addition of Comcast, Epix said it is now available in 70 million homes.

“We are incredibly excited to partner with the team at Comcast to bring our expanded lineup of original programming and extensive movie catalogue to their customers,” said Epix president Michael Wright in a statement.

Epix offers original series like Get Shorty, starring Ray Romano and CIA drama Berlin Station, 2,000 film titles as well as movies franchises such as James Bond, Star Trek and Rocky across all Xfinity TV platforms in and outside the home.

“Our goal has always been to offer our customers more choices and the ability to access all the programming they desire when and where they want it,” said Comcast Cable vice president, video entertainment services Daniel Spinosa in a statement. “We’re excited to bring EPIX into the fold and offer both their growing catalog of top quality original programming, and their robust movie library to all subscribers, across all platforms.”
