The Fat Man said:All I have to say about Starz, since we're in the SiriusXM forum, is look at what Viacom did to Directv. And that was over Viacom wanting to force Epix on Directv. I can see either Disney or Comcast using Starz to hold providers hostage.
dangue said:The two aren't comparable situations. The Starz channels are already pretty standard across the industry and in their own separately priced tier. Epix is not widely distributed and isn't an established premium multiplex. It's doubtful Viacom wants a separate Epix a la cart option without inclusion in some other bundled package.
