Quickflix Seals Streaming Deal With Sony

  • Unlimited viewing via PS3
  • Available via PS3 Xross media bar
  • 50,000 movie titles

Online movie rental subscription company Quickflix has announced that it has entered into an agreement with Sony Computer Entertainment to stream its subscription movie service to PS3.

The Quickflix movie streaming service on PlayStation 3 will provide unlimited viewing of movies from a constantly changing catalogue, which it says will complement its online DVD and Blu-Ray rental by mail service which provides unlimited rentals each month from Australia’s largest movie and TV series library that features more than 50,000 titles.

According to Quickflix Founder and Executive Chairman Stephen Langsford, connected devices are key to the company’s growth strategy. “Combined with our rapidly growing DVD-by-mail business the PlayStation 3 deal strategically positions Quickflix to become the most popular movie streaming service in Australia,” Langsford said.

The Quickflix movie subscription service will feature on the PlayStation 3 Xross media bar (XMB) interface to enable viewers to watch movies instantly. The console also features a DVD Blu-ray player, 3D playback capability and two existing on demand services: PlayStation Network Video Delivery Service (PSN VDS) and MUBI.
