Epix lands first carriage deal

If you’re like me and have no idea what Epix is, apparantly it’s a premium TV service that offers who knows what content. Apparantly it has enough content to make it appealing to Verizon’s FiOS which continues making its services the most attractive out there–if you can get it.

The Wall Street Journal had reported early Tuesday that FiOS was getting close to a carriage deal. Dauman lauded FiOS for its "significant presence" in such key markets as New York, LA and Washington DC. He said the deal gives Verizon a lot of flexibility to offer Epix a la carte and in bundles with its broadband offers. The two firms also plan to create a mobile Epix offer that they can market to Verizon’s VCast subscribers, he said.
