Epix creates app for Playstation 3 and PS Vita
Content provider, Epix has announced plans to launch an Epix app for the Playstation 3 in the first quarter of 2013 and PS Vita in the spring. The app will provide subscribers with access to over 3,000 movie titles, original programming, concerts, comedy and sporting events. The app will be provided as a free download.
“We’re thrilled to join forces with Sony Computer Entertainment to offer subscribers a unique and unparalleled experience. This is another important step in our mission to provide the best content in every way consumers want it, creating better entertainment experiences using our premium content, and by working with technology partners and our distribution partners,” said Mark Greenberg, EPIX CEO and President.
The ability to stream will be part of an authentication process for current subscribers. It doesn’t say that it’s exclusively through one carrier in the press release, but this quote from DISH makes it seem like it is?
“We’ve partnered with EPIX to deliver high-quality programming to DISH customers online and through DISH-branded mobile and tablet apps,” said Dave Shull, SVP of programming at DISH. “A leader in authenticated multiplatform delivery, EPIX has established an innovative agreement with PlayStation that provides yet another outlet for our customers to access its excellent movie content.”
