How do I reach the website so I can watch the movies online?

Access EPIXHD.com from www.cox.com or www.EPIXHD.com and click the Sign Up link. That will walk you through the registration process.


Registration and Login

What do I have to do to get into the website?

The first time you access the website, you will be asked to register. After that, you can access website to choose the movies you want to watch.

Can I use my Cox.com login?

Yes. You can choose to use the same username and password for EpixHD.com as you do to log into your Cox.com account.

Why do I have to register?

Registering creates an account for you. After you log in the first time, you can access the website and movies again for 30 days without having to log in first. After 30 days, you will need to log in again and begin the 30-day process of no login.

Also, if you have children in the house, each of them can register as a user, as long as they are over 18 years old. They will enter their age as part of registration. If they later try to access a movie with a rating higher than R, they will be required to log in.

Who can see the information in my account / user profile?

No one, except you.

Does this mean I'm going to get junk email or spam from these movie sites?

No. Cox does not provide your email or account information to other vendors.

Does this mean I have to get my internet service through Cox?

No. You can continue using your current internet service provider.


Movie Ratings and Parental Control

Do the movies use the same rating as the ones on TV or in the cinema?

Yes. The ratings are:

PG-13Parents Strongly Cautioned - Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.

I don't want my child seeing movies with objectionable content. Can I control that with this movie website?

When a person tries to access a movie that is rated R or higher, the person is required to log in. Otherwise, there are no parental controls available as there are with Cox Advanced TV programs.
