EPIX has announced the launch today of EPIX Now, a $5.99 per month service for both their original series and MGM’s entire movie library along with offerings from Paramount and Lionsgate.
The launch comes ahead of more original series for the service including the R-rated Batman prequel “Pennyworth” which released its first photo today of Jack Bannon as a young Alfred Pennyworth (see above), along with “Godfather of Harlem” starring Forest Whitaker, “Perpetual Grace, LTD.” starring Sir Ben Kingsley, and doco series like “Elvis Goes There” and “PUNK”. They’ll join existing series “Deep State,” “Berlin Station” and “Get Shorty”.
The app is now available for download in the App store for iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV, and on Google Play for Android phones and tablets. Users will have the ability to stream content from the app to any connected TV screen, download movies and episodes for offline viewing, and have access to continually updated curated collections, as well as 4K Ultra HD streaming on supported devices.
All four Epix linear live channels are also available today on select connected TV devices including Apple TV. EPIX Now will also be coming to Roku devices and eventually Amazon Fire TV. The service will roll out across additional devices over the course of the year.
