Good news for those movie lovers out there, EPIX is coming to Vita ‘in the coming weeks’.

EPIX is a movie streaming service that costs $14.99 / month (free trial available here) which includes movies such as Skyfall, Shutter Island, The Avengers and many more (3,000+).  For those of you that are PS3 owners, you can take advantage of the EPIX app this very second by downloading it from the store.  If you are subscribers of Playstation Plus, you will be granted one movie per week, even if you don’t subscribe to EPIX.

    Interesting so I dont have to sub cuz i have ps+ thats pretty cool.

    Another awesome value for PS+ subscribers. The value of that service is seriously unreal. I don’t understand how Sony is making any money at all on it (if they even are–they may just be using it as a value added to sell systems).

    Can’t wait to go home and check it out!

    So after checking it out on my PS3 last night I have to say…not all that impressed.

    I mean, it’s hard to argue w/ a free service so I’ll give some credit there but otherwise there collection seems really spotty (mostly older indie/B-movies with about 15% new releases). They also have even worse fast-forward and rewind functionality than Amazon VOD—and I didn’t think that was possible (as in, it will judder forward or back a minute or more at a time showing only one frame).

    I am also really confused about how the free movie a month works. Is it a specific movie that will be free for PS+ subscribers each week or is it ANY 1 movie for free per week? And how do you access it? Couldn’t figure it out at a glance when I downloaded the app. I am currently taking advantage of the 14 day free trial so I have access to everything (which is great) but I am hoping they clarify a little bit before the free trial ends.

    Still think this is a great value-added service for PS+ as it has some new releases streaming before they are “free” through Netflix or Amazon Prime, but its use will be severely limited if we are only allowed to view a SPECIFIC movie per week as their catalog seems to have a LOT of filler/duds.

    wow this is quite epic if im a ps plus member i get a movie per week? thank you sony

  • Buckybuckster

    Nice that plus subscribers get a free movie each week. That’s 52 free movies a year…….. DUH! : )

    $15 is insane for movie streaming. Just bring Netflix already and lets all hope the DNS trick works so UK users can enjoy US Netflix as we all do on PS3

    Brilliant + value that you get one film a month though, that’s seriously unreal in terms of how good it is for consumers. Sony are winning a lot of fans with their strategy lately.
