Premium channel Epix is adding a feature to its mobile app letting users cast its shows and films straight to smart TVs, no set-top box needed. Where others like HBO have relied on casting through specific devices, like Chromecast or Roku, Epix has partnered with wireless tech provider Vizbee to stream content directly to smart televisions from LG, Sony, Vizio and others. It also syncs up to connected devices like Sony Blu-Ray players, while future platforms like TiVo and Xbox will get linked up in the coming weeks.

The new feature comes a month after MGM spent $1 billion to buy out its partners and take full control of Epix. The premium provider is the youngest of its ilk, launching in 2009 and bringing content from its founders Paramount, Lionsgate and MGM to Netflix a year later. It was quick to bring its library of films to Google TV in 2011, but Epix has a ways to go before it starts competing with the established streaming titans. The upstart premium network launched its first two original content series Berlin Station and Graves last October.
