Netflix Deal, 90-Day Movie Window an Obstacle for Epix if Channel Aims to Get on Time Warner Cable Systems

Sep 16, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Epix, the pay-television channel from Viacom, Lionsgate and MGM, probably shouldn’t hold its breath as it waits to get on Time Warner Cable’s systems, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Company Town blog.

Time Warner Cable Chief Financial Officer Rob Marcus said Epix didn’t help itself by striking a deal with Netflix to put movies from its parent studios on the Internet-streaming site just 90 days after the films debut on Epix, the story says. Epix’s deal with Netflix devalues the channel, Marcus said at the Bank of America/Merrill Lynch Media, Communications & Entertainment Conference.

Epix has said that it hoped the three-month window would placate distributors such as Time Warner Cable. Marcus said, "I’m not sure I understand the logic flow" of that thinking, the article says.
