Subscribers Can Now Access 4K Ultra HD Content Through VOD
Platforms and the EPIX Apple TV App

Premium television network EPIX announced today that DISH and Layer3 TV,
a T-Mobile Company, are its first partners to roll out EPIX's new 4K
Ultra HD offering. Now, EPIX subscribers on DISH and Layer3 TV will have
access to a VOD package of 4K Ultra HD content directly on their set-top
boxes. Additionally, all EPIX subscribers from all affiliates can access
4K Ultra HD content through the authenticated EPIX Apple TV app.

DISH and Layer3 TV subscribers now have access through multiple
platforms to select Hollywood movies in 4K Ultra HD including Arrival,
The Magnificent Seven, Star Trek Beyond, Ben Hur
and
Transformers: The Last Knight
and, coming later this year, films
from the James Bond franchise Die Another Day, GoldenEye, Licence To
Kill, Tomorrow Never Dies, Goldfinger, From Russia With Love,
and
The Spy Who Loved Me.

"EPIX is committed to embracing new technologies to provide subscribers
with the best viewing experience of our premium original programming and
movies," said Monty Sarhan, EVP and General Manager of EPIX. "We are
pleased to partner with DISH and Layer3 TV to deliver this advanced
offering to a wider audience, and look forward to working with more
distributors to include 4K Ultra HD as part of their entertainment
packages."

"While 4K televisions have become a staple in households throughout the
U.S., 4K shows and movies are still a bit of a rarity," said Vivek
Khemka, DISH executive vice president and chief technology officer.
"That's why we're continuously working to bring more of this content
into our customers' homes, and are pleased to work with EPIX so
subscribers can access more TV in crystal-clear clarity, directly from
their Hopper 3 and 4K Joey set-top boxes."

"We're hyper-focused on delivering the highest quality content to Layer3
TV customers," said Jeffrey Binder, EVP Home and Entertainment,
T-Mobile. "It's something our customers have come to expect, and we're
thrilled to be one of the first to partner with EPIX to deliver their
premium 4K content to Layer3 TV subscribers."

DISH has carried EPIX programming since 2010 and provides television
entertainment and technology to millions of customers with its satellite
DISH TV and streaming Sling TV services. Layer3 TV (a T-Mobile company)
launched EPIX in 2017 and offers customers a revolutionary, intuitive
interface that seamlessly integrates the best of cable TV, premium
channels, streaming online video content, social media, and smart home
devices.
