Imagine viewing the biggest blockbusters online with your loved one serving in the military. You see the same film at the same time - it’s almost like you’re in the theater together! Now troops at four domestic military bases - Ft. Carson, Ft. Drum, Ft. Bliss, and at the USO Service Center in the DFW Airport in Dallas, TX - can participate in a screening room pilot program, courtesy of the USO and EPIX.

Troops can then invite their families and friends in other parts of the country to chat and watch movies online with them. To participate, troops can request an invite code at a dedicated USO landing page: Click here to visit this page!
