Samsung flicks Quickflix to TVs, tablets, phones

Samsung has joined Sony in partnering with entertainment subscription service Quickflix, with access to its movies and TV shows coming to Samsung’s range of TVs, Galaxy smartphones, and range of tablets.

With the new partnership, Quickflix access will arrive on LED, LCD, and Plasma Internet-capable televisions from 2010 to now, as well as home Internet-enabled home theatre systems from the same time period.

Access to Quickflix won’t just be limited to TVs, though, with Samsung aiming to bring it to most products in the Galaxy smartphone and tablet lineup, including both the Galaxy S and S2 smartphone, upcoming Galaxy Note 5.3 inch smartphone, and the range of Galaxy Tab tablet devices.

“Samsung is thrilled to join forces with Quickflix, Australia’s leading online movie rental company, offering customers a comprehensive on demand content on Samsung Smart TVs and across a broad range of other devices,” said Brad Wright, Samsung Australia’s National Sales and Marketing Manager for AV. “Samsung recognises Australian’s growing demand for exceptional content streamed into their living rooms and plans to announce further exciting and innovative services throughout 2012.”

Samsung hasn’t given us any time other than “in the coming months”, but when it does happen, customers will be given access to Quickflix either with a subscription service – $14.99 per month with a $12.99 joining fee – or a simple “pay-per-view” payment charging no more than $9.99 per movie or TV show.

Quickflix will become part of Samsung's "Smart Hub" on select TVs in the coming months.
