Epix films on Dish Network menu

Paramount, Lionsgate films online

As Dish Network makes moves to buy the Blockbuster brand, the satcaster is bolstering its Dish Online service with thousands of titles from Epix.

Dish, the No. 2 satcaster behind DirecTV, has agreed to add 3,000 titles from its library of pics from Epix backers Paramount, Lionsgate, MGM, as well as Samuel Goldwyn and Roadside Attractions. Titles include “Star Trek,” “The Last Airbender,” “Iron Man 2,” “Shutter Island” and “Kick-Ass.”

Films will be available for free to Dish Platinum customers who subscribe to Epix. Consumers also can access the titles from EpixHD.com.

Dish Online is essentially the satcaster’s version of Hulu and features a large library of pics and TV shows, as well as music fare for free or as rentals, and links to subscribers’ DVR recordings. As it builds out the site to become a considerable source of revenue, Dish continues to add content that can play across multiple devices.

As of Dec. 31, Dish counted 14.13 million subscribers. They could eventually turn into a new source of rental coin for the studios.

Dish added Epix’s movie channels to its service a year ago. The addition of the channel’s films to DishOnline.com was expected.
