Epix outs apps for Android, Roku, Samsung, more

Video-on-demand and online service Epix on Wednesday released apps that will bring its service to more than one hundred devices. This includes Android-based phones and tablets, connected Samsung TVs and Blu-ray players, the Google TV, Roku set-top boxes, and the BlackBerry PlayBook. All the apps are free and grant access to users authenticated from their cable and satellite providers with access to more than 3,000 Epix movies, original programs, and TV shows.

Epix has partnered with distributors to provide limited-time access to all Epix movies and original programs to heavy consumers of online video. Those who sample the content will be put into contact with connected distributors to subscribe to the service. One of the first partners is Verizon FiOS, it said. The Epix apps will give all consumers access to movie trailers, interviews and short form video content.
