Epix Headed to PlayStation 3 Today

Premium TV network Epix today is making good on a promise to bring streaming to the PlayStation 3.

The network is launching its app on the console, giving users high-definition access to its library of more than 3,000 titles, including new releases like The Avengers, Skyfall, The Hunger Games, and Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol. There's also a slew of other Epix content including documentaries, concerts, comedy specials, and championship boxing. (PS3)

And how much does a subscription cost?

And again calling for a ban on the word "free" from advertising. We all know they'll want a credit card for the two "free" weeks.

If they don't charge your card, isn't it still free until the two weeks are up? Just because they ask/require a card to be present on the account, that doesn't mean its not free. You also have the ability to cancel any subscription fees before being charged, if you don't want to continue the service. Making it free for two weeks as long as you cancel before the time is up.

I signed up for two free weeks and it didnt ask me for a card. Maybe you buy per movie.

Okay, so you don't have to have to give them your credit card.

Still not seeing a subscription price.

confused mech is confused...

So, subscription is through a cable provider with no listed price? But then I'm not paying for my cable - someone else is - and even then by their site the provider isn't one which yet carries Epix - and yet I'm not watching something.

Well, at least I get two weeks out of it.

not sure
but i have used Epix on the 360 and never once saw a subscription or extra charge on either my live or uverse bill. I dont know how but I am able to watch their shows

With hulu, you know there is a fee. Same with netflix but epix.....I just dont know.

As mystery is forming. What the hell is this service?

Something that given access to over twenty movies including the Avengers and Cabin in the Woods for two weeks.

So "win" I guess?

They're probably using a central server through PSN, so even if your cable provider doesn't have Epix, you can watch it over PSN, but you're likely still out of luck unless you've got PS+.

You still have to register with them.

Register at their site and log in on the PSN page to DL the app, then get and enter a code to register your PS3.

Epix comes with Verizon Fios. You have to be a Verizon customer

This app is just like HBO GO people. Your have to have the channel from your cable provider to use the app after the two free weeks. So if you go out of town or put your system in a room without a cable box then you'll be able to watch the content available by each channel. Which is pretty much everything.
