The join effort of Viacom, MGM, and Lions Gate, called Studio 3 Networks, said that the online service will provide original TV programming as well as on-demand movies over the Internet, with a distribution deal on cable networks expected to come later in the year.

Studio 3 plans to launch the broadband version of epix around May, with a cable launch during the end of 2009. At the time of launch, consumers will have "immediate access" to feature films from the three studios.
