TV channel and movie streaming service Epix has an app for watching movies directly on Android devices. Epix is a partnership of several Hollywood studios: Paramount, MGM Studios, and Lionsgate, that claims to offer 3000 films streaming on its movie service. There are some relatively recent films on it, like The Expendables, Iron Man 2, Defiance, Rango, The Lincoln Lawyer, and a selection of concert films and documentaries.
By visiting the Epix website, users can sign up for 14-day free trial (no credit card required) and begin to watch movies directly on their device by simply putting in a 6-digit PIN. Android tablets are supported as well as phones; the app simply requires Android 2.1 or up. Note that full long-term access to the channel requires authentication with a cable provider that offers the channel, but it is free for those with access to it. The EPIX HD app is available now from the Android Market.
