The first Windows 8 app for streaming
Quickflix movies and TV series in

Australia and New Zealand, has
been announced.

 Aussie based content provider Quickflix,
who has already ran into major financial troubles earlier this year, says the app will help it  take “advantage

Of Windows 8’s ground—breaking user interface and massive
potential for reaching Windows—based customers.”

A Quickflix spokesperson could not reveal precise up-to-date subsciption numbers locally when contacted by SmartHouse today, but did say there has been “quite a significant increase” from last year.

In January, Quickflix said its user numbers were “steady” with almost 120,000 paying customers, with the numbers streaming online rising by 42,000 or 18%

But new analyst figures out today show Windows
8 has failed to wash with computer users globally, and has contributed to a slump in sales of touch
notebooks, laptops, so may drive up Quickflix subscriptions as anticipated.  

The

new Quickflix app

is

available

in

the

Windows

Store for

free.

The

new

app

works

on

Microsoft’s

Surface

tablet

as

well

Windows

8

compatible

desktops,

laptops

and

tablets 
including

Dell,

HP,

Users of the Windows app can access subscriber service Play and Pay Per Play, where non-subscribers can view new release films
for

$5.99.

 

The Quickflix app is already available on a slew of other devices like Samsung, Panasonic, Xbox,  Macs, iPads.

Current and upcoming new releases on Pay Per Play service include Oscar
winning  Argo, Les Misrables and Searching
for Sugar Man and other titles such as Pitch Perfect, Killing Them Softly

 Quickflix

Chairman

and

CEO

Stephen

Langsford

said
“We

are

very

excited

about

being

the

first

Windows

8

app

to

put

movie

and

TV

streaming

in

the

hands

It’s

not

a

wonderful

way

to

navigate

and

select

a

great

movie

to

watch

but

the

potential

uptake

across

Windows

devices

is

significant.

“This

is

a

big

step

forward

in

enabling

everyone
