Quickflix Heads To Playstation 3

Sony Playstation 3 News

As the market for online media streaming continues to grow, another online streaming service will grace Australian Playstation 3s later in 2011. It is known as Quickflix, an Australian rental movie company, based in Perth, Western Australia, considered the Australian Netflix. This follows the deal made in July to release the service for Sony internet-enabled products, specifically Sony Bravia internet televisions.

Quickflix Chief Executive Officer Chris Taylor spoke on the deal, expressing his delight at a new platform to expand his business:

“Having entered a streaming agreement for Sony Bravia in July we’re very excited to now extend the partnership to PlayStation via its game console platform. Over 1.3 million Australian consumers who own an internet connectable PlayStation 3 will have access to Quickflix’s on demand movie streaming service. This is a significant moment in the evolution of IPTV delivered entertainment in Australia and a major development for our company.”

On the other side of the deal, Sony Computer Entertainment Australia & New Zealand Managing Director Michael Ephraim revealed his delight on how Quickflix will further expand the Playstation brand in Australia:

“This exciting agreement with Quickflix will further enhance PS3’s already strong entertainment on demand credentials across TV, games, music and now, an even larger range of movie options. If you love games, and your family loves movies, quite simply there is no better choice of device for your home than PlayStation 3, which is also one of the most highly awarded Blu-Ray players.”

This is wonderful news for Playstation 3 owners. It expands the capabilities of the console as a media platform. Hopefully Quickflix will expand into other platforms.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
