Samsung to bring Quickflix to TVs, tablets and phones

Samsung Australia today announced a new partnership with DVD-rental and media-streaming company Quickflix, with plans to install a new Quickflix app on smart TV units and its Galaxy range of portable devices, including tablets and smartphones.

The new Quickflix app will roll out to Samsung’s Smart Hub models first, including TVs and Blu-ray players from 2010 onwards. Soon after, the app will come to mobile devices, with the Galaxy S, the Galaxy S II, the Galaxy W, the Galaxy Note and the full range of Galaxy Tab products on the compatibility list.

The service will offer Samsung customers the option to sign on to the Quickflix all-you-can-watch subscription service, which offers approximately 300 movies at any time, and cycles in new movies for old movies every month. A membership in this service will cost AU$14.99 per month after a once-off AU$12.99 registration fee. Quickflix also offers on-demand content, which ranges in price up to AU$9.99 per download.

Samsung becomes the second major vendor to make such a partnership with Quickflix, after Sony installed similar apps on TVs and its PlayStation 3 at the end of last year. This announcement also follows recent news from Quickflix that it has taken on US network HBO as an investor, and will be offering HBO content through its service by the end of this month.
