EPIX - the premium movie service offering from Paramount, Lionsgate and MGM - has announced at Mobile World Congress (MWS) 2010, which is being held in Barcelona, Spain the availability of its streaming service on mobile phones. The streaming service on mobile devices is expected to provide subscribers full-length movies and programming. The service is going to offer a feature that enables subscribers to pause a movie they are watching on TV or computer and resume watching it on a mobile device. EPIX, which was launched in October 2009 with Verizon FiOS as the only distribution provider later announced the addition of Cox communications, Charter Communications, Mediacom Communications and the National Cable and Telecommunications Cooperative to its providers list.

Adobe's Flash Player 10.1 is going to power EPIX's mobile streaming service. Studios and DVD rental service providers are expanding streaming service to take advantage of the broadband internet connectivity on Consumer Electronics. Netflix , in particular, has been expanding its streaming service by partnering with Consumer Electronics Manufacturers to bring its streaming service to gaming consoles, internet connected TVs and Blu-ray disc players.

Availability of movie streaming service on mobile devices is going to let people access the content anytime, anywhere, but it remains to be seen if cellular providers are going to allow the streaming service without charging a premium.
