Entertainment network EPIX will launch its app on the PlayStation 3 system during the first quarter of 2013, with an app for the PlayStation Vita handheld system to follow in the spring. EPIX will provide authenticated subscribers with access to more than 3,000 titles, including a HD lineup of new releases like Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol, The Hunger Games, Thor and more. The line-up also includes EPIX original programming, featuring marquee concert, comedy, and sporting events.
The EPIX app will be available to PlayStation Network members in the US as a free download from PlayStation Store.
“Our core audience has demonstrated a tremendous appetite for streaming movies and TV shows through their PS3, and we’re excited to bring EPIX into the homes of millions of PS3 owners in the US as well as to PlayStation fans on-the-go through their PS Vita,” said Phil Rosenberg, SVP, Strategic Business Development, SCEA.
