I got an email yesterday telling me Epix had been added to the Dish movie pack. I am still in the 3mo. free preview since I signed up in March.
It wasn't showing in the "all subscribed" guide, so I chatted with a rep. and they claimed they knew nothing about it but I could add it for $7/mo. All three Epix channels then showed up in the guide and I am now getting it. The rep. claimed no changes were made to my account. I checked my account page and nothing had changed.
Anyone else now getting Epix as part of the Dish Movie pack?

Was the Epix channels also in AT250? As I never lost them. I also have the Movie Pack.
Epix Drive-In definitely is, since that one was never in Dish Movie Pack. I get it with AT250, without the separate Epix add-on. I also have Dish Movie Pack, though.

No those are not but anyone who had the Movie Pack was grandfathered and still had the three Epix channels, new subscribers to the Movie Pack did not.

Is Dish offering the Dish Movie Pack for $5 for 6 months deal anymore?

My 50% off deal ends 5/5. If we want to keep it and have the grandfathered epix channels, should I leave it set to "continue @ $10 Mo" as shown in the screen shot?

Leave it set to continue, and try removing it after it has already gone back up to $10 to see if you get the half off offer. Last time I jumped the gun a few days early and did not receive the offer.

i talked to a chat person about a week or so ago. even posted it here. on april 12 the chat person said epix was included.
they told me that the 5 dollar deal was not available. *maybe for other people but i didnt qualify.
but i did qualify for the hbo/.cinema 5 dollar deal for 6 months. so i have that package.
but yes epix is included with it. from when i posted that chat person said it was.

I also received email telling me Epic was going into movie pack. I just called up Dish and they denied that they sent email and it is $7.00 a month for Epic.

The DIRT member I contacted confirmed there is no more discount available for the movie pack, at least at this time.
I guess that is the price we pay for the new Epix contract. Dish was going to charge more either way, making Epix a separate package at $7 per month, or eliminating the $5 per month discount on Dish Movie Pack to keep Epix in that package also.

No discount offer when trying to remove. :( Going to leave well enough alone for now, we do watch these channels.

I did however get the 1/2 off deal for starz when trying to remove which I accepted.

yeah i cant get epix drive in pack unless i subscribe to epix package.
i have the dish movie pack though, and they should give users with that package the option to add epix drive in for 2 dollars extra.
