Extending the reach of its authenticated TV Everywhere platform, EPIX has launched an app on the Xbox One.
The TVE offering for Microsoft’s latest console includes the live streams of four channels – EPIX, EPIX 2, EPIX 3 and EPIX Drive In – plus about 3,000 on-demand titles, including The Hunger Games and documentaries, music and comedy specials from Katy Perry, Madonna, Louis CK, and Russell Brand.
EPIX launched its TVE app for the Xbox 360 in December 2013. EPIX also supports iOS and Android mobile devices, Web browsers, the Google Chromecast, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, Roku players, and Windows 8.1 devices.
“We are excited to continue our relationship with Microsoft’s Xbox to deliver great programming how, when and where viewers want to see it,” said Mark Greenberg, EPIX president and CEO, in a statement. “The launch of the EPIX app on Xbox 360 drew tremendous subscriber engagement and we are looking forward to extending our successful collaboration with the launch on Xbox One.”
EPIX, a joint venture between Viacom, Paramount Pictures, Lionsgate and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, is offered to more than 50 million homes nationwide. Last month, Sling TV, Dish’s new OTT pay-TV service for cord-cutters, launched content from EPIX as part of a new “Hollywood Extra” package that runs an additional $5 per month.
