    Everything to Know About MGM+, the Rebranded Epix

    The new year has marked a major change for Epix. As of January 15, the network has changed its name to MGM+. Both its linear TV network and its streaming service, Epix Now (which carries the same catalogue as its parent network), have the new title. Will the rebranding usher in other new changes? Here’s everything we know.

    When did Epix change to MGM+?

    Epix was Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s (MGM) TV and streaming home for years. The premium and commercial-free linear and streaming service housed MGM titles, plus original series such as Forest Whitaker‘s Godfather of Harlem, Western adventure series Billy the Kid, the War of the Worlds drama series, sci-fi horror series FROM, and more.

    MGM+’s name change debuted in conjunction with the Season 3 premiere of Godfather of Harlem on Sunday, January 15. (TV Insider exclusively debuted the Season 3 trailer. Check it out here.)

    Season 2 of the gangster drama broke records for Epix viewership across its various digital channels, so it makes sense MGM+ would throw its weight behind the star-studded series as a means of publicizing the rebranding.

    The series will be available to watch on the cable network and streaming platform. It stars Whitaker, Michael Raymond James, Giancarlo Esposito, and more, with a cameo from Whoopi Goldberg (reprising her Season 1 role).

    Where is MGM+ available?

    Per MGM, MGM+ will continue to be available in the United States on Prime Video (Amazon acquired MGM in 2022), cable, telco, satellite, and digital distribution services, as well as the MGM+ app.

    What is included on MGM+?

    MGM+ already houses MGM hit titles like No Time to Die, House of Gucci, Licorice Pizza, and Cyrano. In addition, the streamer has select titles from the James Bond franchise (more coming February 1), the original Rocky movie and its sequels, and the following: Silence of the Lambs, Bull Durham, Platoon, Robocop, The Magnificent Seven, Barbershop, The Pink Panther, Saturday Night Fever, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, and The Thomas Crown Affair.

    Additional Epix/MGM+ originals include Rogue Heroes and Belgravia. The platform’s non-scripted series include the Emmy-nominated Laurel Canyon, Slow Burn, My Life as a Rolling Stone, NFL Icons, and more.

    Upcoming MGM+ original premieres include docuseries Murf the Surf on February 5 and A Spy Among Friends in the spring. The platform also green-lit two dramas and two unscripted docuseries — Hotel Cocaine, Belgravia: The Next Chapter, Untitled Amityville Murders Docuseries, and San Francisco Sounds (working title) — in September when the rebranding was announced.

    Additional titles will be coming to the platform in the coming months, such as Almost Famous (February 1), Three Thousand Years of Longing (February 15), A Simple Favor (February 19). You can scroll through upcoming premieres in the “Coming to MGM+” section of the site (login required).

    MGM+ claims to offer “more movies than any other network with thousands of titles available for streaming.” Its motto is “MGM is television for movie lovers.”

    How much is MGM+?

    Currently, an MGM+ subscription costs $5.99 per month (with a seven-day free trial) and $49.99 annually (the same price pre-name change). There are no ads on the service. To get the MGM+ channel add-on on Prime Video, it costs $5.99 per month on top of the Prime Video subscription price ($14.99 per month).
