AT&T TV Now joins an expanding line-up of streaming services where Epix is available and the launch coincides with the recent premiere of original series Pennyworth, the origin story of Batman’s butler Alfred.

Forthcoming series on the service include Godfather of Harlem, starring and executive produced by Forest Whitaker; Belgravia, from Julian Fellowes; docu-series Slow Burn and weekly series NFL: The Grind.

“We’re thrilled to be launching on the AT&T TV app, making our premium programming available to even more AT&T customers across the country.
