Yeah but the flash player still plays their streams for crud on my PC, will not render smoothly in full screen mode and well, if they were having that much success in their venture you'd think they would invest in some advertising... They've been around for a couple years and this is the first I have heard of the service.

dont you have to have a verizon account??

I thought this was FIOS's answer to Comcast's little thingy

Does it work with the PS3?

I have Comcast and it worked. The video quality is ok on my Mac monitor, even at full screen. I'm not sure if it'll work on the PS3.

All their movies are listed here:

Very few there that I'd want to watch. None of the movies anywhere near the top of my queue (instant or disc) are available on EPIXHD. Definitely not worth $10/mo.

You have to have some kind of cable subscription in order to subscribe. No cable for me, means no Epix for me.

Nope. I signed up as not receiving cable or satellite. No problemo. Just scroll to the bottom of the list.

I tried it a few weeks ago. Most of the 'selections' were "will be available soon" but not during the trial.

I would have to add a tier to my current cable, which would add more cost, and their selection didn't appeal to me that much.

I just signed up for Netflix and got the Roku box, a much better deal, even though it does cost a bit more.

The way the movie list is formatted...is this service made for streaming on a mobile phone? On a regular computer, to me, that's really annoying.

hem .... your really good posts. My love, I am waiting for your next posting.

Seriously unimpressive: bandwidth problems, dearth of movie info (no user ratings?), poor selection, weird categorizing (four movies in the category "Urban?"), lame interface that kicks you back to the home page if you click to view a coming attraction--and you have no way of knowing it is one before clicking.

Lastly, the price, proving once again that Hollywood doesn't get it. Netflix continues to be the best video entertainment value for the dollar.

Wow great the line-up include Pathe, SND and StudioCanal in France and E1 Entertainment, Lionsgate UK and Optimum Releasing in Ireland politics, according to Cupertino, California-based Apple. Films are available at iTunes on the same day they are released in DVD format and can be watched on iPods, iPhones, Macintosh or personal computers, or using Apple TV devices that link to television sets.

Once someone begins watching a film rented at iTunes they have two days to finish viewing it or "watch it multiple times," according to Apple. Movies in the iTunes library may be rented for 2.99 euros while rentals of new releases cost 3.99 euros per film.

student aid, i'd like you to meet tiffany1837co. I hope you two have a blessed union in hell forever someday. AND I HOPE THAT SOMEDAY IS FREAKING SOON PLEASE BAN THESE DOPES.

Thank you. (Honestly, I'd rather read nothing but cry-baby "28 day window" posts than to be subject to these trolls).
