DISH Network First to Offer New Movie Channel from EPIX DISH Network announced the launch of The 3 from EPIX, a new movie channel dedicated to celebrating popular films from the '70s, '80s and '90s to present. Designed for passionate movie fans and drawing on the deep libraries of EPIX's studio partners, The 3 from EPIX offers an unedited lineup of time-tested favorites like Raiders of the Lost Ark, Rocky, Top Gun and The Terminator. Other programming includes eclectic genre fare such as "chop sockey" movies from the '70s; teen coming-of-age comedies from the '80s; and wilder, edgier late night features hosted "Shock Theater" style - all packaged with original trailers from these time periods. "Providing our customers with an unmatched in-home movie experience at the best value is a top priority, and we are excited to expand our movie offerings to include titles from the broad EPIX film library," said Dave Shull, senior vice president of Programming for DISH Network. "We are pleased to have a partner in DISH Network that is committed to providing expanded access to great entertainment for all viewers. The launch of The 3 from EPIX on DISH Network underscores our efforts to bring more entertainment choices to consumers, wherever they are viewing," added EPIX President and CEO Mark Greenberg. The 3 from EPIX is located on DISH Network channel 292 and is available free to customers who subscribe to America's Top 250 and above. DISH Network also offers EPIX and EPIX 2 as part of the HD Platinum package. For more information on DISH Network, including HD Free for Life call 866.989.3474 or visit Dish Systems online today.
