    I got a message in DirecTV that Epix is in a free view right now. It didn't say for how long.

    It's an additional $5/month. I already pay for the premium package (HBO, SHO, etc), I refuse to pay more for individual channels. Include it or not.

    I noticed that on the message screen. The problem is, if I like it, what next? Because see above.

    Amen to this- I pay for the premier package- I get all the major movie channels- HBO, Showtime, Max, etc). My monthly bill is ridiculously high.

    So why in the heck do we have to pay extra for this channel??? Makes no sense- like you, no way I am paying for it.

    So disappointed that they aren’t dropping the entire season at once. There are 10 episodes so I’ll subscribe mid-November.

    Is this coming to BBCA?

    I always love the old 1950s movie (one of the few movies that scared me as a kid). The more recent adaptions have been just OK. Hopefully this will be interesting as well.

    Boy, that looks like it's well done, and for a TV series.

    didn't they make a movie like this -- one that failed miserably?

    I guess if anyone would do it right, it would be HBO.

    The movie basically took everything away that made the books good, and added nothing new. Presumably out of fear of offending the religious right.

    Hopefully, HBO will be a little more gutsy in their approach...

    This is a BBC production that HBO will show in the US.

    The Epix distribution model is weird. I subscribe to Spectrum internet and a lower tier of PlayStation Vue. I can authenticate to the Epix app via my Spectrum credentials. I’m on an actual Spectrum plan right now. A year ago I was on a legacy TWC plan without any premiums and could access Epix “for free” then, too. I think I could access it even before the Charter/TWC merger.

    The premiere of Treadstone actually aired two weeks ago on September 24th. Oct 15 is the "official" air date of the start of the series, and will be an encore showing.

    I thought that was just a preview, not a full episode.
