Epix Going to Google Chromecast25 Nov, 2014 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Entertainment network Epix Nov. 25 announced it has launched a TV Everywhere app on Google Chromecast.
Though a bit lost in the crush toward subscription streaming and over-the-top video, Epix, which is co-owned by Lionsgate, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Paramount, was the first pay-TV network to launch on Xbox 360, PlayStation, iOS, Android tablets, Windows 8.1 and Roku players.
Authenticated subscribers have access to more than 3,000 movies, including the "Hunger Games," "James Bond" and "Star Trek" franchises, plus original programming such as documentaries “The Road to the NHL Winter Classic” and “The Road to the NHL Stadium,” Russell Brand: Messiah Complex and “Hollywood Sessions,” co-produced with the Los Angeles Times.
“The marrying of Epix with Chromecast’s easy-to-use device offers a unique and unparalleled experience. With this partnership, we’re continuing to build on our momentum of delivering great programming how, when and where viewers want to see it,” Keary Hanan, SVP digital programming and production, said in a statement.
