Epix video streaming app launches today on PS3

The Epix streaming video service will be released today as a PlayStation 3 app, according to a post on the PlayStation Blog by Chris Mahoney, director of emerging platforms at Sony Computer Entertainment America.

PlayStation Network users can sign up for a 14-day free trial, and the app will be available in the PS3's TV/Video Services menu as well as the Media & Apps hub in the PlayStation Store. To celebrate its launch, Epix bundled exclusive content into the service, including songs from Epix Original Concert Events, which includes a Coldplay show from last year. PlayStation Plus members will also be able to watch a weekly free movie, whether or not they're subscribed to the Epix service.

A PlayStation Vita version of the app, which was also announced in January, will arrive "soon," according to Mahoney. You can find out more about the service's movies, concerts and original programming on your PS3 or at the official Epix website.
