First premium TV network to stream movies in 4K Ultra HD

Premium television network EPIX has announced that DISH and Layer3 TV, a T-Mobile company, are its first partners to roll out EPIX´s new 4K Ultra HD offering, the company said.

Now, EPIX subscribers on DISH and Layer3 TV will have access to a VOD package of 4K Ultra HD content directly on their set-top boxes. Additionally, all EPIX subscribers from all affiliates can access 4K Ultra HD content through the authenticated EPIX Apple TV app.

DISH and Layer3 TV subscribers now have access through multiple platforms to select Hollywood movies in 4K Ultra HD including Arrival, The Magnificent Seven, Star Trek Beyond, Ben Hur and Transformers: The Last Knight and, coming later this year, films from the James Bond franchise Die Another Day, GoldenEye, Licence To Kill, Tomorrow Never Dies, Goldfinger, From Russia With Love, and The Spy Who Loved Me.

DISH has carried EPIX programming since 2010 and provides television entertainment and technology to millions of customers with its satellite DISH TV and streaming Sling TV services. Layer3 TV (a T-Mobile company) launched EPIX in 2017 and offers customers a revolutionary, intuitive interface that seamlessly integrates the best of cable TV, premium channels, streaming online video content, social media, and smart home devices.
