ATLANTA, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for the summer movie season, Cox customers across the country now have access to the ultimate movie experience with the launch of two new movie offerings and an array of enhancements. Available both on TV and online, EPIX and Vutopia are available at no additional cost to Cox Advanced TV customers who subscribe to the Movie Pak.

"Cox is redefining our customers' movie experience by giving them the most convenient ways to watch thousands of movies every month – on TV, On DEMAND, in high-definition and online," said David Pugliese, senior vice president of marketing for Cox. "And at no additional cost to Movie Pak customers, Cox offers the best value for movie lovers."

EPIX is a new premium, multiplatform movie channel, video-on-demand and online service, available in both standard and high-definition, offering recent Hollywood titles plus classic films, original series and music and comedy specials. EPIX offers the world television premieres of hit Hollywood movies from Paramount, MGM, Lionsgate and other studios. Vutopia is a new On DEMAND movie service offering more than 150 movies to watch anytime, including Hollywood favorites and documentaries. Movies are searchable by genre, title or mood, making the search as much fun as the find. Many of the On DEMAND titles are also available in HD.

"Cox is committed to meeting our customers' needs for video on whatever screen they prefer most," said Steve Necessary, vice president of video product development. "Our activities with and are evidence of that commitment as we fully recognize that while most entertainment video is consumed on the TV, broadband video provides a valuable complementary service."

Cox is also now offering most new release pay-per-view On DEMAND movies in high-definition at the same price as the standard definition titles - bringing more choice, value and convenience to movie lovers. Many new releases are instantly available On DEMAND the same day as DVD release with no planning necessary, nothing to return and no late-fee worries. Plus, with On DEMAND, customers can rent select movies from major studios like Warner Bros, Fox, and NBC Universal 28 days before they are available from Netflix or Redbox.

"In addition to the vast library of movie choices available On DEMAND, many the same day as home video release, Advanced TV customers can now access even more content in the way that is most convenient for them," added Pugliese. "Cox Advanced TV allows customers to watch more movies their way – anytime, anyplace."
