Quickflix launches on Xbox One in Australia
| 22 May 2014
Australian video streaming service Quickflix has launched its service on Xbox One, following its arrival on the Playstation 4 console in December 2013.
"We're delighted to extend our partnership with Microsoft Australia enabling us to be the first Australian movie and TV streaming subscription service available on the new Xbox One console," said Stephen Langsford, founder and CEO, Quickflix.
"This launch is yet another step taken by Quickflix to offer Australians more ways to watch amazing entertainment presenting even more compelling alternatives to traditional television or pay-TV."
Jeremy Hinton, interactive entertainment business lead for Microsoft Australia, added: "Over time, Xbox 360 evolved into a games and entertainment apps system — and we saw usage of Xbox jump significantly as people started to use the box for games, movies, TV shows, music, and more.
"With Xbox One, we set out to create something entirely unique: a complete all-in-one system for the living room that not only has the best games, but the best online experiences, the best entertainment and TV experiences, together in one place, being built for the future."
The app, which is also available for Xbox 360, streams unlimited blockbuster movies, as well as classic films and TV shows from major producers such as HBO and the BBC
