    Just for kicks, I tried EpixHD.Com which requires a subscription to Epix and uses an authentication method similar to HBOGO to allow you to view Movies on the site (you have to sign in via your Cable Provider). I get "Flash Update Required" when trying to view a video. This is pretty relevant because Google TV is specifically listed as a valid option for viewing videos on their site. Does anyone else experience the same thing?

    Yeah, but that's nothing new, that has been going on all the time via the web connection ... Trying connecting via TV Spotlight and see if you get the same "Flash" message ....

    I used EpixHD with a free trial last year on Google TV from Spotlight despite not having cable and it worked great, I hated to see the brief free trial end. My girlfriend also used her free trial but I haven't tried to use the site since that time and it wouldn't surprise me if it now requires a Flash version newer than Google TV uses and if so, this is just one more reason Google TV needs to update to Flash 11. I hope Google soon realizes this shortcoming is a serious one.

    I don't subscribe to Epix - however I'm able to stream all the trailers from the "Extras" section (from the link that you provided). I'm on Logitech Revue OS 3.1. Couple of things that I noticed:

    1) I could find no onscreen control to make the videos go full screen. Do the full movies have a way to go full-screen? I could also not find any volume controls.

    2) Video quality was excellent.

    3) Menu load time and navigation was a bit slow.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Just as a test I clicked to play a movie and I got a pop-up message on-screen that said:

    "Get Access

    Go To EpixHD.com/watchnow

    Cancel ------- OK"


    I clicked "OK" but nothing happens.........

    This seems to me that in order to watch their full movies through the GTV web app - Epix just links to their regular web site? (But once again I'm on Logitech Revue OS 3.1 - so I'm not sure if that is making a difference or not..........

    On my Logitech Revue - EpixHD is no longer listed as a Spotlight app. Is it listed as a Spotlight app on the Co-Star?

    Spotlight Gallery - Google TV

    No I don't see it listed as a spotlight app. As long as you use the leanback URL above it works well.

    FYI, the Epix content library is available on Amazon Prime video...

    ya.. if only they had a decent App... the only access method I see is akin to navigating a web page.. do-able, but not elegant.
