EPIX in Long-Term Distribution Pact with Comcast


EPIX has entered into a new long-term distribution agreement with Comcast to provide its programming across Xfinity TV, on-demand and digital platforms.

The distribution deal will make EPIX available on a subscription basis to Comcast’s X1 video customers in early 2018. EPIX will provide Comcast Xfinity TV subscribers access to its content on a live and on-demand basis, including its original series Get Shorty, Berlin Station, Graves and, coming soon, The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair. EPIX will also be available live and on-demand through the Xfinity Stream app to EPIX subscribers.

“Comcast’s Xfinity TV is one of the most innovative and powerful distribution platforms for entertainment content across the United States,” said Gary Barber, the chairman and CEO of EPIX parent company Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. “As we increase our investment in original series, expand content offerings and commit more resources to developing EPIX’s brand and appeal, we are excited to partner with Comcast and bring EPIX’s suite of premium content to their customers.”

Monty Sarhan, the executive VP and general manager of EPIX, commented: “This agreement marks an incredible milestone for our company and provides EPIX with a launchpad to deliver our content to more consumers on every platform. We’re extremely pleased to be in the Comcast universe. ”
