HBO, Showtime, and Starz! Are really getting into making, or co-making their own programing, while AMC, TNT, and FX are still mostly buying their shows from the studios. Also, Showtime is a part of the Epix group that just signed a deal with netflix for streaming.
Hmm...the Epix deal took place last year, a contract near the $900 million range over 5 years. Is there an article you've come across detailing something new regarding Epix?
And Epix is owned by Paramount, MGM, and Luionsgate. The execs running Paramount weren't happy that Sumner Redstone split Viacom into 2 separate companies, putting cable and pay channels Showtime on one side (Viacom) with the studio on the other (CBS Corp). and wanted back in on the pay tv arena...
