One thought on “Marvel Heroes Weekend on EPIX”

  1. This is such a treat and right before Free Comic Book Day! My dad has been a big fan of Stan Lee and his work since he was a little boy. He’s actually where I began loving Stan Lee’s work too! Even though I’ll be working overtime that weekend, I’ll still be able to watch Epix’s Heroes Weekend live with my DISH Remote Access app. I use the app along with the Sling Adapter that I got through DISH, when I started working for them, and it helps me to watch special things live on TV when I don’t have a chance to be home to do so. I’ll definitely record the documentary so my dad can have a chance to watch it too.
