Amazon Prime has another network. MGM’s premium cable network, Epix, has come to Amazon Prime for $5.99 a month. The Epix channel will show original programming like the spy drama Berlin Station and the upcoming Batman prequel Pennyworth. We can also look forward to a documentary adaptation of popular Slate presidential history podcast Slow Burn.
Epix joins the rest of the premium cable channels that can be attached to a Prime subscription, including Showtime and Starz. It’s a great way for premium cable channels to get their content in front of viewers who are growing weary of having too many separate subscriptions.
This is actually one of the more affordable channel options on Prime Video. You can pay $10.99 a month for Showtime and $8.99 a month for Starz for instance.
Epix launched its own streaming service, Epix Now, earlier in the year, first on Apple TV, Android and iOS. Then it expanded to Roku and Amazon Fire TV as well. Epix Now is the same price as the Prime channel, at $6 a month, but gives you access to more content since it covers the network’s four live channels, plus there’s a selection of movies and original shows. It should be a great addition.
