Avail-TVN teams with EPIX

Wholesale TV infrastructure and programming firm Avail-TVN has announced a new agreement with content provider EPIX under which Avail-TVN will support EPIX video-on-demand launches to service provider customers. Avail-TVN helped in initially rolling out EPIX, a premium movie channel/VoD/online venture created by three major movie studios, last summer. The offering has since gained carriage agreements with Verizon Communications and Cox Communications. The Avail-TVN deal will help make EPIX available to more than "48 million video-on-demand households via every service provider in North America, providing a seamless on-ramp to launch as affiliate agreements are completed," the companies said in a press release.
