Viacom’s Dauman Talks Epix, Online Distribution

Mar 19, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Viacom president-CEO Philippe Dauman says the new premium cable network Epix is on track for an October launch date, Broadcasting & Cable reports. Epix, Viacom’s joint venture with Lionsgate and MGM, has enough distribution partners for its launch and is “going to be around” even if some are bought out, according to Dauman, the trade publication adds. Dauman also says the company is committed to distributing content on the platforms consumers want, but at the same time appears “skeptical” about some sort of online viewing method that requires pay TV customer authentification, B&C notes.
