EPIX (US) is planning to launch a direct-to-consumer video subscription service, Variety reported, citing EPIX Executive Vice President and General Manager Monty Sarhan.
"It's on our roadmap and we are working towards it," Sarhan told Variety, without disclosing pricing plans or a launch date for the stand-alone service. The executive added that the network is currently extending its existing distribution deals with traditional TV operators with a target of full distribution across U.S. TV homes.
The news comes shortly after the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc.-owned premium network announced that it will offer movies and TV shows in 4K sometime this year. Subscribers will also be able to stream 4K titles via video on demand through its apps on select devices.
