Fledgling channel inks pact with Dish Network

Epix has crossed another milestone, inking a distribution pact with satcaster Dish Network that will make the fledgling pay TV channel available nationwide for the first time.

Epix will be accessible in the 14.1 million homes served by Dish, the No. 2 satcaster behind DirecTV.

With the Dish deal and recent pacts with cable operators including Cox, Charter Communications and Mediacom, Epix will be available in 30 million homes by next month. There’s no word yet on the number of subscribers who have signed up since the service, owned by Viacom, Lionsgate and MGM, bowed in late October.

“Epix is an important part of our increased HD channel offering and strong expansion of our movie lineup,” said Dave Shull, Dish’s senior veep of programming.

Epix prexy and CEO Mark Greenberg called the deal “a major step forward for us as we expand our national footprint.”

Among the titles that will be on Epix around the time of the Dish sign-on are “Precious,” “Paranormal Activity” and docu “The Cove.”
