Premium channel Epix notched another distribution point this week by landing on virtual MVPD AT&T TV Now (formerly DirecTV Now), where it will cost subscribers an extra $6 per month.

The agreement comes not long after Epix set a deal to integrate on DirecTV. A spokesperson for Epix said there was no update on Epix being integrated with the upcoming AT&T TV streaming video service.

“It’s an incredibly exciting moment for the network as we continue to expand our distribution footprint and bring our superior customer experience and quality programming to new audiences,” said Epix President Michael Wright in a statement.

Epix has seen significant growth in distribution partners over the past year and half. In May 2018, the company finally set an integration deal with Comcast.

In early 2019, Epix launched its own direct-to-consumer streaming app, Epix Now, priced at $5.99 per month. The following month the service added support for Amazon Fire TV and Roku devices. In June, Epix joined the roster at Amazon Prime Video Channels.

“2019 is poised to be an incredible year of growth for our network,” said Wright. “Launching Epix Now and providing consumers nationwide with access to our premium original programming and blockbuster movies is an exciting moment for our company, and solidifies our commitment to bring high-level storytelling to as many people as possible. We look forward to welcoming new audiences to our network.”
