Now, however, it's ready to buck tradition. The MGM-owned brand just launched a $6 Epix Now service that provides all four of the network's live channels as well as on-demand access to original shows(like Berlin Station and the Batman-based Pennyworth) and "thousands" of movies.

This being 2019, you can expect 4K video as well as access across a host of devices. You can use Apple TV, Android and iOS to watch right away, while Amazon Fire TV and Roku support is "coming soon."

As it is, Epix isn't relying solely on streaming to appeal to non-traditionalists. It's approving development of a documentary series based on the podcast Slow Burn, which covers the twists and turns of a President's downfall. The first season will "mirror" that of the podcast, focusing on the Watergate scandal and its connections to the modern day. It'll be hosted by podcaster and Slate journalist Leon Neyfakh. There's no mention of a release date, but there's little doubt that Epix is eager to join the ranks of media giants adapting successful podcasts.

Apple News subscription service preview found in iOS 12.2 beta.
It would offer access to newspapers and magazines for a monthly fee.
