Premium Epix is extending its reach this week, debuting on PlayStation Vue, Sony’s new over-the-top multichannel pay TV service.

PS Vue is offering Epix Hits, a new channel that will feature titles such as The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1; “classic” titles from franchises such as Star Trek and James Bond; and EPIX originals. PlayStation Vue subs will also have access to an Epix on-demand library featuring “thousands of titles,” Epix said.

Epix said its service for PlayStation Vue will be offered in a variety of tiers and multipremium packages. PS Vue’s multichannel TV tiers -- Access ($49.99 per month), Core ($59.99/month) and Elite ($69.99/month) -- are currently offered in seven markets: Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas; Miami-Fort Lauderdale, Fla; Chicago; Philadelphia; Los Angeles; New York; and San Francisco. Those packages also feature a cloud DVR. PS Vue also features a growing mix of a la carte fare that’s separate from its multichannel offering, including Fox Soccer Plus, Showtime and a new channel from Machinima that will be offered as a standalone or with PS Vue's Elite package. 

PS Vue is currently supported on the PlayStation 4 and PS3, and via an app for the iPad.

“PlayStation has been an outstanding partner since we began working together in 2013,” said Mark Greenberg, Epix president and CEO, in a statement. “We’re excited to continue our partnership to advance the next generation in the evolution of multichannel offerings.”
