Internet movie channel Epix launches this weekend

After months of planning, the new TV/internet channel Epix launches this weekend. Verizion FiOS subscribers will see the new movie channel as part of their TV lineup, and they'll also have access to the internet movie channel with 175 on-demand movies including some newer movies such as Iron Man and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

If you're not a FiOS customer, you can still request an invite to check out the service. Just sign up at and you'll register for a 3-day weekend trial of the internet-only service. The invites are being given out on a first come first, served basis, so you might not get one right away. But Epix plans to offer invitations between now and Thanksgiving.

Epix is run by Viacom, Paramount, Lionsgate, and MGM, so the company has access to a decent collection of movies, although it looks like most of the titles available at launch are older movies.
