“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.

TV EVERYWHERE: IT’S ALL ABOUT MILLENNIALS

TV Everywhere: It’s All About Millennials

New survey from Altman Vilandrie & Company and EPIX shows pay TV can attract younger consumers with TVE, but awareness remains low

BOSTON, MA – October 14, 2015TV Everywhere (TVE) could entice more millennials to subscribe to pay television services if awareness of the opportunity to watch movies and TV shows on multiple devices grows, according to a new annual survey of multiplatform video viewing trends released today by strategy consulting firm Altman Vilandrie & Company and premium entertainment network EPIX.

While the percentage of occupied U.S. TV households without pay TV service—now about 17%—is continuing to increase, millennials (ages 18-34) are significantly less likely to subscribe (72%) than consumers over 35 (86%). Millennial consumers represent just 20% of pay TV subscribers but make up 37% of consumers who have either dropped their multichannel video subscription (“cord-cutters”) or eschew pay TV altogether (“cord-nevers”).

However, the survey data reveals that TVE could help curb cord-cutting, as younger millennials (18-24 year-old subscribers) are 23% less likely to explore TV alternatives or to switch providers if they know their video provider offers TVE than if they think the service is not available. For subscribers unaware that their provider offers TVE, more than half (55%) of young millennials and 48% of older millennials (25-34 year-olds) say they would use TVE at least once a month if their provider offered it. Additionally, a majority (54%) of young millennials and 47% of older millennials who do not have multichannel video service agree that they would be more likely to consider subscribing to pay TV if they could watch content on devices other than their TVs.

Consumer awareness of the ability to watch programs on devices other than a TV, typically through apps provided free to subscribers, remains persistently low at 36%, with little difference among pay TV subscribers by age. For 18-24 year-old subscribers aware of TVE, 7 in 10 say they use the service monthly — more than the 57% of older millennials and well above the 43% of all multichannel video subscribers aware of TV Everywhere.

“Young viewers tend to be mobile device viewers and the survey shows that the best way for pay TV operators to capture and retain those consumers is through TV Everywhere,” said Jonathan Hurd, the Altman Vilandrie & Company director who led the survey.  “However, providers need to do a much better job of promoting TV Everywhere and driving its usage or risk continued erosion of subscribers, especially millennials.”

The study also finds that subscribers to EPIX, which is available on hundreds of mobile and connected devices, are significantly more aware of TVE offerings at 61% (70% higher than the national average). These viewers also confirm the trend: Those aware of TVE are more likely (81% vs. 72%) to say that they will definitely or probably not discontinue their multichannel video service over the next six months than subscribers unaware of TVE.

“From the beginning, TV Everywhere has been a core pillar of our business, knowing consumers want to watch content when they want, where they want and how they want,” said Mark Greenberg, president and CEO of EPIX. “We’re excited that the findings of this study highlight how important TVE offerings are to the pay TV landscape in maintaining subscribers and growing viewership.”

The survey also found that video viewing on mobile devices is particularly high among millennials. Almost half (46%) of millennials report using their smartphones and/or tablets to watch movies or TV shows at least weekly compared to 38% of all mobile device owners.

Other findings from the survey include:

  • Multichannel video subscribers aware of TVE are much more likely to use their provider’s on-demand service weekly to watch movies (32% vs. 20%) and TV shows (44% vs. 27%) than those who are unaware
  • Among all weekly TVE users, millennials are at least twice as likely as consumers over 35 to use TVE to view movies (38% vs. 16%), live TV shows (30% vs. 15%) pre-recorded TV shows (33% vs. 15%) and live sports (31% vs. 12%)
  • When asked why they subscribe to pay TV, consumers aware that their provider offers TVE are much more likely to identify the choice and convenience provided by TVE as a reason to subscribe, including:
    • I can watch it according to my own timetable, whenever I want (#1 reason)
    • I can watch on devices other than my TV
    • I can watch it away from home (e.g. laptop, mobile phone, tablet).

The survey, conducted by Altman Vilandrie & Company since 2010 and co-sponsored this year by EPIX, also analyzed pay TV subscribership, online video usage, mobile viewing, multitasking and binge-watching. Key portions of this analysis are available to media by request.

Altman Vilandrie & Company fielded the online survey in July among more than 3,400 U.S. consumers. For details about further research topics and more information about the study, contact Jonathan Hurd at [email protected].
