Sony have sent word that their partnership with local movie rental and streaming service Quickflix kicks off tomorrow, December 23rd 2011, enabling another avenue for watching movies on demand on the console that appears to have a more comprehensive library of new release films than the PS3's existing MUBI service.
For $14.99 a month, subscribers to the Quickflix streaming service can enjoy unlimited access to movies on demand, from a constantly updated catalogue. Existing Quickflix online Blu-ray and DVD rental customers can upgrade from $7 to $14 per month. For a limited time, a special Quickflix promotional offer will be available for PS3 customers who sign-up to the service providing unlimited monthly subscription streaming and a choice of two Blu-ray disc rentals available for $4.99 per month for the first three months.1
Michael Ephraim, Managing Director, Sony Computer Entertainment Australia commented: “PlayStation 3 in Australia has today made another leap forward in our home entertainment on demand offering with the exciting addition of the home grown Aussie movie subscription service, Quickflix, to our platform. It’s great to be partnering with an innovative, fast growing Australian company making inroads in the multichannel delivery of movie content that will provide our customers even more entertainment choices.”
