Wow, this is wild. It appears that Lionsgate, Paramount, and MGM have partnered to create a new premium TV movie channel called Epix. The channel will feature all the latest movies (even ones that aren’t out on DVD yet) from the participating studios. What’s more, subscribers, those lucky enough to get the channel through their TV provider AND have an Internet service plan with the same company, will also be able to tap into the exclusive portal to stream any the channel’s currently playing movies — commercial free — in their web browser on-demand in 720p. And the best part: Epix will cost subscribers $0, if and when their TV/Internet provider jumps onboard. [via]
