You Can Now Subscribe to EPIX on Amazon Prime Video Channels

Last month, Epix, the premium channel owned by MGM, reached a carriage deal to be distributed by AT&T on DirecTV and DIRECTV NOW. Today, the company announced that the service has been added to Amazon Prime Video Channels for $5.99 a month, after a 7-Day Free Trial. Epix has a library of 2,000 films, as well as original series like Get Shorty and Deep State, with new shows Godfather of Harlem and Pennyworth coming later this year.

Cord-cutters are already familiar with the channel. Epix, which previously was part of Sling’s Hollywood Extra pack, moved to a standalone $5 a month option on Sling TV earlier this year. Just last month, YouTube TV added the channel as a $6 a month add-on to their streaming service. Its sister-network, EPIX Hits, is available on PlayStation Vue’s Elite & Ultra plans.

In February, the company launched a direct-to-consumer offering called EPIX NOW, which offers the same content directly from Epix for $5.99 a month. It was announced that the service will be made a part of Apple’s upcoming Apple TV Channels service, after they were one of Roku’s launch partners for their similar premium subscription service earlier this year.
