Epix Expands VOD Deal With Avail-TVN21 Jan, 2010 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Epix, the high-definition pay-TV and online streaming channel co-owned by Lionsgate, MGM and Paramount Studios, Jan. 21 said it extended a deal with digital media services company Avail-TVN giving the nascent service access to 48 million video-on-demand (VOD) households in the country.
Los Angeles-based Avail-TVN helped Epix, which launched in Oct. 1, last summer ramp up its multichannel platform that offers more than 300 movies on VOD online and via cable.
Epix earlier this month inked its third carriage deal with Mediacom Communications, the nation’s seventh largest cable television provider. Verizon’s FiOS TV service and Cox Communications also carry the service.
