The channel is already carried by such large TV operators as Dish, Verizon, Charter, Cox and AT&T’s U-verse. Sling TV and PlayStation Vue, the live streaming services, also offer Epix in their lineups.

Epix said the Comcast addition means it will be available in approximately 70 million homes in the U.S.

Said Monty Sarhan, EPIX’s General Manager: “Comcast’s broad reach and coverage in key markets throughout the country, combined with its trailblazing efforts in delivering a state-of-the-art customer experience, make it an industry leader on every level.”

The two companies first announced the carriage deal last November.
