Hackashaq Wrote:Hi BC, thanks for all the great plugins.
I am unable to get the EPIX HD to work with my Verizon Fios credentials, which work just fine on the EPIX HD web site.
I was able to associate a yahoo email eith my legitimate account, but there is no place for a password for these accounts.
My fios username / password was only needed the first time I accessed the site. Now, I simply select Verizon Fios from the drop down and it knows who I am. Even after signing out and using a free acount, if I later select fios from the drop-down it knows me without logging in.
I'd like to help get this working with fios accounts. I notice the site changes to verizon.epixhd.com when i'm using my fios account in ie9.
I think reason why hackashaq (and I) can't login through xbmc is because we are eligible for epix because of our cable (internet) subscription through verizon and charter. When we sign in, the website says it takes us to a 'magic window' where we give our login info to the isp and they tell epix yes (or no). So its like i have a free epix account (cannot watch streaming movies), and when i sign in through the 'magic window' it says i am eligible to watch their online content. Is there a way for us to select the provider in the plugin settings so that it would send login to isp who could 'validate' our subscription? Else, there is the devices page where you select your device (or the coming soon device) and then you get an authentication code which we type in on xbmc and epix validates our 'device' like they do for roku, android, or google tv.
So its all in how you qualify, for being an epix subscriber, through isp, through cable tv, invite code...each has a different way of authenticating.
From charter website:
Log in at either charter.net/epix or at Charter.epixhd.com If you subscribe to Charter Internet you have to login to EPIX with your charter.net email address, password and service address zip code. If you subscribe to Charter internet service and have not yet obtained a Charter email address you will need to do so before being able to log into EPIX online. You can create up to 10 email addresses through your My Account for your household. Each of these charter.net email addresses can be used for accessing EPIX online content.
If you do not subscribe to Charter Internet you have to log in with your Charter My Account username, password and service address zip code. You can set up additional logins for viewing online video content such as EPIX at charter.net/myaccount.
