However, although Pana Blu-rays are in the bag, Quickflix streaming to Xbox service is not a done deal just yet, a Quickflix spokesperson told SmartHouse.
Although the deal with Xbox is still not finalised, the Aussie-owned company is hopeful the service will go live sometime “in the next quarter,” so could be here by September/ October time.
Final negotiations with Microsoft are still underway, the spokesperson confirmed.
This is despite the service first flagged by Quickflix in April last.
The Quickflix “unlimited” movie service would stream TV and move content exclusive to Australia and New Zealand XBox Gold members for a “low fee.”
Gamers will soon be able to watch Quickflix movies on their Xbox console and will include titles from Warner Bros, Sony, NBC Universal, MGM, Lakeshore and Pinnacle Films, meaning anything from ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’ to Johnny Depp’s new flick ‘Dark Shadows’ straight on your Xbox.
And TV series from the BBC, ITV and HBO, maker of hits like The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, can also be streamed to the Microsoft console.
Quickflix already streams to Xbox-rival Sony PlayStyation, tablets, Apple Macs, smartphones and smart TVs including Samsung, as recently announced.
There is also set to be an official launch of Quickflix on Xbox, but we’ll let you know more as soon as we get word.
