Quickflix cuts price of movies, TV streaming by 30%.Online content company Quickflix has just slashed the cost of online streaming by almost 30% to $9.99 per month from the previous price of $14.
The price cut comes weeks after Foxtel launched their unlimited movies streaming service for $20 a month, although at the time Quickflix’s boss said he was not fazed by the new competition.
Quickflix says the move marks the beginning of a new-era in affordable home entertainment.
The new subscription offers unlimited streaming of TV shows and movies, including selected TV shows from HBO and BBC, blockbuster movies and Kids TV in standard definition or high definition (HD).
Quickflix CEO, Stephen Langsford says the service is far superior to rival Foxtel.
“We believe our new entry level streaming plan of $9.99 per month offers customers the best value proposition and provides unparalleled choice and convenience compared with Foxtel’s $19.99 per month plan which only includes standard definition movies and is limited to PC, Mac and iPads.
“What customers want is streaming to their TV screen and their mobile devices. Our streaming service does both and is growing at pace with well over 7.5 million movies and TV shows streamed to date and the numbers of hours streamed on Quickflix growing by about 20 per cent per quarter.”
Under the $9.99 subscription, customers can stream to up to six registered devices including smart TVs, game consoles, Blu-ray players, mobiles, tablets.
Under the one subscription a family or household can stream up to three movies or TV shows concurrently.
Last month, Perth-based Quickflix announced a 16 per cent rise in users to 118,500, for the quarter end 31 March.
