Sony’s Director of Emerging Platforms, Chris Mahoney, announced earlier today that the digital entertainment streaming network, EPIX, will be coming to the PSN today.
EPIX will be offering recent releases like The Avengers, The Hunger Games, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Captain America: The First Avenger, and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. EPIX has partnered with movie studios like Paramount, MTV Films, MGM and Lionsgate, offering over 3,000 HD movies, along with EPIX’ own original documentary series and EPIX Original Concert Events.
Mahoney also says there will be PSN specific deals to get users “acquainted” with EPIX’ service, like PSN users offered a free 14-day trial period, and a new movie that any Playstation Plus member can stream for free, even if they aren’t a subscriber (though whether that’s a new movie of your choice is unclear). EPIX will also be making its way to the PS Vita, soon.
