When television and the Internet intersect, the consumer wins. After recently introducing EPIX premium entertainment service on traditional television and On Demand, Charter is now making the service available online to EPIX subscribers at no additional cost at www.charter.net/epix.
EPIX new entertainment service offers a wide variety of on demand, online, and HD entertainment choices. Charter customers who subscribe to the EPIX channel can now also enjoy EPIX content online, which increases their control of Charter TV service.
"EPIX is a total viewing experience - traditional television, on demand, and online - that enables our customers' TV viewing to evolve through this exciting multiplatform technology," said Rich DiGeronimo, Charter's Vice President of Product Management. "Television is an important part of our lives, and Charter continues to invest in new technologies and services that further enrich our customers' viewing experience."
To enjoy these movies and specials online, customers who subscribe to EPIX should simply visit www.charter.net/epix and log in with their Charter e-mail address or MyAccount username and password. Subscribers to EPIX can also view its programming On Demand by going to Channel 1, selecting "Premium Channels," and then choosing EPIX.
EPIX subscribers will have access to a broad online lineup through Charter, including new releases like Star Trek, Shutter Island, Precious and Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All By Myself; classic franchises like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Godfather; and A-list music and comedy artists such as Madonna, The Black Eyed Peas, Lewis Black and David Cross.
Many Charter customers are already enjoying EPIX programming, and extending access to charter.net will provide additional value to this new service. According to Mr. DiGeronimo, audiences are experiencing video differently than they have in the past. "Charter's early launch of the EPIX multiplatform service recognizes the importance of choice and control for customers whose viewing habits are multidimensional," he said. "Our goal is to help guide our customers through this dramatic evolution in TV viewing by providing high-quality programming on whatever platform or technology they choose."
