EPIX DEBUTS NEW SET-TOP BOX APP ON TIVO.

EPIX has begun offering EPIX content through an app that enables authenticated subscribers to access EPIX's library of more than 2,000 Hollywood movies on TiVo devices. The app will first launch with Atlantic Broadband, the ninth- largest cable operator in the U.S. Atlantic Broadband delivers TV, Internet and Phone services to approximately 250,000 customers in five operating regions: Western Pennsylvania, Miami Beach, Maryland/Delaware, Aiken, S.C., and Eastern Connecticut.

Any Atlantic Broadband customer with a TiVo device will be able to use the new EPIX app to enjoy nearly six times more EPIX content than previously available. Additional National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC) cable systems with TiVo set-top box service deployed will have access to the EPIX app. This deal extends EPIX's reach to customers and further grows its presence across mobile devices, streaming devices, game consoles, and smart TV's including Xbox, PlayStation, Android phones and tablets, Roku players, Chromecast, Apple iPhones and iPads, Android TV and more.

The EPIX app will provide Atlantic Broadband viewers with streaming access via TiVo set-top boxes to its original series Berlin Station and Graves, its groundbreaking original documentary programming including America Divided and thousands of movie titles on-demand. Those movies include big movie franchises like The Hunger Games, James Bond, and Star Trek, original documentaries, music and comedy events featuring marquee talent like Katy Perry, Craig Ferguson, Louis CK, Wanda Sykes and more. Key features of the EPIX app on TiVo include an advanced UX with the ability to add programs and movies to a personal queue, curated collections, advanced search and video playback features, plus content available for free sampling, Rotten Tomatoes scores, and trailers. EPIX developed the application using the React/ES6 framework coupled with OperaTV, which allows for fast iteration and continuous upgrades for its customers.
