Thanks for the heads up. The Epix blurb just says free access to movies, but does the trial also include their stand up comedy specials? There are a few I'd like to check out and if so, I'll relinquish my email address.

Seems like every day this year has been "National (whatever) Day"- who gets to declare these? I'll have to try out Epix and at least see how the quality is on that.

Keep an eye on your email.

I received an email from ROKU (For National Streaming Day) and it had a $5 VUDU credit in there.

Just FYI though...it expires in a week.

Got that promo as well. Looks like I'll buy Sword in the Stone while it's on sale.
