Yeah I also noticed the vault section and also the adult movie section was not on the standalone app

I'm sure they will add more/make adjustments in the coming weeks/months as this is still a work in progress. EPIX is still new at the streaming thing.

The 4 live channels is nice though. I actually watched Red Corner yesterday on one of the live channels.

First thing I watched on EPIX Now was The Phantom. It was going to play on a live channel but watched it On-demand instead.

Apparently the older movies are all there. You just have to search for them.

I found Bill and Ted's excellent adventure and bogus journey and many others just doing a search. The ones you see on the menu are only the "featured" titles.

It is a seperate service but some EPIX content does appear on Prime.

EPIX also does have 4K content now just no HDR. They also mislabel content as 5.1 when it is stereo.

There was no reason for Amazon to acquire Epix and lMDB TV (now FreeVee) except as a means to decontent Prime.

Re: Epix to offer standalone streaming service & content in 4K

What happens to MGM Movie Channel(at least available on DirecTV) once Epix switches over to MGM +?

Update-Oct 31st will be the last day for MGMHD and will be going off the air.

Does WB own all of the MGM Cartoons (1940's,1950's)?

Who owns Man From U.N.C.L.E. (1960s tv show)?

I noticed MGM Movie channel is gone from Directv

I wish they had kept it or rebranded that channel too instead of losing another movie channel

MGM Movie Channel was discontinued by Amazon on Nov. 1st because of Epix being rebranded.

The package that DirecTV has for 8 channels (including HD Net Movies and Sony Movie Channel) isn't worth the money unless they replace MGM HD.

Re: Epix to offer standalone streaming service & content in 4K

Does nearly every streaming service need to add the word "Plus" to their name? It's getting redundant at this point.

Disney should have trademarked it.
