I re-subscribed to the DISH movie pack today and noticed Epix channels were not on my guide, I called and Dish Rep said they are now $7.00 a month extra. Really, canceled movie pack, not worth it now.

Still here too included in the movie pack. With Dish not including BBC World not in AT250, I wonder if Dish to trying to add more revenue?

After January 16th who can get EPIX if they want it? If it's no longer in the Movie Pack, will it be ala cart or something?

Also I just came off the $5 offer for something like the 5th time and for the first time in a long time when I go to cancel I do not get the offer again.

Till now it has been @ $7. But I have not seen it on the DISH site anymore and that link says this page does not exist. It is a selection when I go to my Programming however.

Are you talking about when you go online and start the steps to cancel a package and the system automatically offers you a half price deal not to cancel? Have they changed that? I’ve been doing that for years on the Dish Movie Pack as well as HBO and Showtime. Hate to see that changed.

It sounds like it broke into separate packages. Maybe dirt can chime in and confirm.

In the mydish My Programming under the Premium tab I have Epix available for $7 and Starz Encore Movies for $6. I checked my guide and I already have available all the channels for both Epix and Starz Encore Movies.

Yes that is what I am describing. As a guess they are not offering the Movie Pack at $5 because I am now grandfathered in getting Epix as part of it.

Yes but I don't see nor have I ever seen the Movie Pack there at least for me.

It must be different for everybody. I did hbo/max from there today, hbo expired 1/28. Redeemed offer for starz and dish movie pack from there recently also. Not sure exact date on the latter 2 but offer ends for both on 5/5. Must have been before 1/16 when the change for epix took effect.

Nothing I currently have is there. (HBO $10 no expiration and Movie Pack $10 with Epix) The offers are Cinemax, Showtime, Starz for $5 Heartland, Starz Encore $3 Outdoor $2 and Sports Pack $7.50

Better hang on to the movie pack for $10, stay grandfathered with epix for as long as possible.

At 1 time I had the hbo deal for $10 with no expiration. Can't recall what I changed that I lost it, as long as they still offer promos I can live with that.

Curious what will happen when my 1/2 off Dish Movie Deal ends. If I go online and they automatically offer me another 1/2 off deal to “not cancel”, will it still include Epix? It doesn’t expire for a few months so maybe someone else will have tried it by then.
