“EPIX has a deep roadmap of innovative features planned in the coming months, including new ways to download content to your Honda entertainment system using other mobile devices in and out of vehicles,” added Jon Dakss, Chief Digital Officer, EPIX. “We’re also tracking the rapid technological advances in the autonomous vehicle space as we believe they will create extraordinary new ways for people to access premium content while they travel”.

Honda Odyssey passengers sitting in the second and third rows will have access to the network’s breadth of premium content: thousands of movies on demand including big franchises such as James Bond, The Hunger Games and Star Trek; critically acclaimed original series Berlin Station, Golden Globe nominated Graves and, coming August 13th, Get Shorty; groundbreaking documentaries such as America Divided; music and comedy events from Katy Perry, Louis CK, Wanda Sykes and more.

“The 2018 Honda Odyssey is a great leap forward in connectivity, with an emphasis on communication between family members and their connections to digital content,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of America Honda Motor Co., Inc. “the Odyssey accomplishes this with available features such as CabinWatch and CabinTalk plus our relationship with EPIX providing second and third row passengers with access to streaming digital content.”

EPIX is pre-loaded into the 2018 Honda Odyssey’s available rear-seat entertainment system (RES). Key features of the EPIX app on the Odyssey platform include:

Rear-seat passengers now have access to EPIX’s library of 2000+ movies and shows including its cinematic user interface, four EPIX live linear channels, the capability to add content to a personal queue, free sampling, curated collections, advanced search and video playback features, and movie trailers.

EPIX TO LAUNCH “EPIX CAST” AN INDUSTRY FIRST EXPERIENCE CONNECTING ITS MOBILE APP TO MILLIONS OF CONNECTED TV PLATFORMS

Simplifies the TV Everywhere Experience by Making Content Available to Any Connected TV Device with a Single Tap

New York, NY — (May 04, 2017) – Premium entertainment network EPIX today announced that it has launched EPIX Cast, a new feature that allows users to cast EPIX content from their Apple and Android devices to any connected TV device without the need for additional hardware. A pioneer in cross-platform viewing, EPIX is again advancing the “TV Everywhere” experience by making it easier for all audiences to enjoy its content on connected TV devices with the touch of a finger on their smart phones. EPIX Cast launches this week with Smart TV models from LG, Sony, Vizio and others, as well as Google Chromecast and Sony connected Blu-ray Players. Other devices including Samsung Smart TVs, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, TiVo and Xbox will be enabled in the coming weeks.

“From the very beginning of the creation of EPIX, our network has been focused on reaching consumers wherever they are, whenever they want and with an experience that is unrivaled in the market today,” said Mark Greenberg, EPIX CEO. “With this new feature, we’re once again leading the charge on advancing the consumer viewing experience”.

Added Jon Dakss, Chief Digital Officer, EPIX, “When you consider that 75% of all broadband-enabled households now have a Connected TV device, the opportunity is enormous. We’re excited to add this to our long list of industry firsts, helping advance the TV Everywhere experience, and simplifying the streaming experience for our subscribers”.

To launch the feature, EPIX has partnered with start-up Vizbee, the pioneer of ‘Vizbee Device Network’ -a mobile-centric network of all video devices in a household, to enable the EPIX app to seamlessly connect to any Connected TV device and cast content effortlessly from any authenticated mobile device to the TV.

New Features

EPIX Cast has expanded the TV Everywhere experience to reach all owners of Smart TVs and Connected TV devices including Blu-ray disc players across the country. The new features include:

Vizbee-powered “Tap to TV” casting to various connected TVs from the phone
Viewing can be started on one TV and switched to a different TV in the home if the viewer decides to change rooms
IOS or Android devices can be used normally once program begins playing on the TV and will continue playing even if the device turns off
The movie library and extensive content choices available on EPIX apps will be available through EPIX Cast – enhancing choice for viewers

EPIX has also enhanced the app with personalized promotion and communication features. EPIX Cast learns when users are most receptive to programming promotions — such as when the user is typically home watching TV — and can alert the user to EPIX movie and original programming premieres for them to cast to a connected TV device.

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (“MGM”) announced earlier this month that it will acquire full ownership of EPIX, having reached an agreement to acquire the interests held by joint venture partners Viacom, Paramount and Lionsgate. The transaction is subject to regulatory approval and is anticipated to close this month.
