Viacom’s Epix movie network has landed a deal with Verizon that will put the pay-TV channel in some of Fios TV’s 2.5 million homes, according to a story in the Wall Street Journal.
More than a year after its conception, Viacom’s Epix movie network has secured a toehold in TV, adding a new competitor to the crowded pay-TV business, according to a story in the Wall Street Journal.
Written by Sam Schechner, the story says that Fios TV will carry the network in some of its 2.5 million homes.
Epix is run by three movie studios, Viacom’s Paramount Pictures, Lions Gate Entertainment and MGM Studios, which want to gain direct access to the monthly subscription fees that make pay networks so profitable, the story says.
