  • I think it's great that offline media consumption is finally come into practice. Not everyone has unlimited data plans. I am anti-streaming. Now the storage on mobile devices needs to be greatly increased or have SD expansion. Posted via Android Central App

  • I have Epix via my cable company but rarely use it. This news has me already downloading the app. Once this feature goes live I may have to give it a solid look.
  • Anyone else notice that Epix and Netflix all have the exact same Movie catalog? Not including the TV and comedy shows. Was wondering if Netflix owned Epix?
