QuickFlix is a streaming service where movies and TV shows can be viewed for a subscription fee. Quickflix founder and CEO, Stephen Langsford says “The recent launch of PlayStation 4 has been one of the most significant and anticipated events in the consumer technology, gaming and entertainment category for many years.”
“We’re delighted extend our partnership with Sony Computer Entertainment Australia enabling us to be the first Australian movie and TV streaming service available on the PS4, and to deliver on our commitment to offer people more ways to watch the entertainment they love.”
The VidZone service allows PS4 users to access a weekly updated database of music videos on demand. Users can search for their favourite music videos, along with creating personalised video playlists.
Managing Director for Sony Computer Entertainment Australia, Michael Ephraim has commented on the entertainment services launch, saying “It’s well recognised that PlayStation fans love all forms of digital entertainment, whether its music, TV, movies or games and we remain committed to delivering the most immersive digital entertainment experiences on our platforms.”
With the PlayStation 4 currently sold out across Australia, a second batch of units is expected to arrive in time for Christmas, with further stock arriving in early 2014.
