25 Best Epix Alternatives Right Now

As a subsidiary of time-honored media giant MGM, Epix has no shortage of content to choose from. On the movies front, it carries MGM classics dating all the way back to the 1940s as well as recent blockbusters from the likes of Paramount, Warner Bros., and Sony.

But while it has many licensed titles under its belt, it can be wanting in the originals department. So if you're looking for similarly stuffed platforms with more original content, or you're just curious about the competition, we've listed the best Epix alternatives currently available below.

Lifetime Movie Club is a subscription video service that gives you access to thousands of original titles, many of which can also be found on its cable counterpart the Lifetime Channel. Lifetime movies are known for being unapologetically dramatic and occasionally sinister, so if you're one to indulge in such content, then this might be for you. Lifetime Movie Club also welcomes new movies to its library every Friday, as well as hosts a handful of syndicated shows, including the much-beloved Grey's Anatomy.

Amazon Freevee, or simply freevee, is a free, ad-supported streaming service powered by Amazon.

The CW is known for its iconic and even award-winning dramas, comedies, and reality shows. It has an enviable library to be sure, but it splits these among two streaming services: the self-titled The CW and the more modest CW Seed, which serves as a repository for the network's past and non-airing shows. That means you're free to watch classics like The OC, Pushing Daisies, Schitt's Creek, and America's Next Top Model for free on CW Seed. Its entertaining, zero-cost catalog is a sure major attraction (you don't even have to make an account to stream) but a potential downside is its limited title count.

It's a bit costly at $9.99/month, but the curation and streamlining of content are undoubtedly excellent.
