Epix emerges as the latest TV-brand to launch video-streaming service


Streaming services have become a lot competitive, especially since more brands are gradually emerging as competitors in the space

In the history of TV industry, Epix has definitely left a print, and it cannot be marked out of the history book. While the TV brand has made a lot of wave in the past years; it is now deciding to join the bandwagon of Streaming services in an effort to make space alot competitive. Where HBO, Showtime, and other premium services launched stand-alone streaming services a while ago, Epix has insisted that you subscribe to a TV package to sample its wares. Now, however, it’s ready to buck tradition. The MGM-owned brand just launched a $6 Epix-Now service that provides all four of the network’s live channels as well as on-demand access to original shows and “thousands” of movies.

Also, apart from launching a video-streaming service, the service might be offering more of 4K video as well as access across a host of devices. We are in 2019, and we shouldn’t be expecting anything less than great. In addition to what have been said, the service also promise to be available on several outlets like the Apple TV, iOS, and Androids, while other supports like the Amazon Fire TV, Roku among others will be available sooner than later. Interestingly, there is a low charge, so subscribtion is not a reason to not stream the service especially if you’re a recent cord-cutter and don’t want to subscribe to a many-channel service like Sling TV or PlayStation. However, you still might be left to chose your favorite among several other single-network offerings.

As it is, Epix isn’t relying solely on streaming to appeal to non-traditionalists. It’s approving  development of a documentary series based on the podcast  Slow Burn, which covers the twists and turns of a President’s downfall. The first season will “mirror” that of the podcast, focusing on the Watergate scandal and its connections to the modern day. It’ll be hosted by podcaster and Slate journalist Leon Neyfakh. There’s no mention of a release date, but there’s little doubt that Epix is eager to join the ranks of media giants adapting successful podcast.
