Back in January, Quickflix had around 10,000 customers on its WatchNow streaming service. Three months later, that number has risen to above 20,000 — an impressive growth pattern, but still a long way from turning it into a Netflix-like dominant provider.
In its latest update to the Australian Stock Exchange, Quickflix said it has 107,520 paying subscribers, and that “almost 20 per cent” are including WatchNow as part of their package. It also hinted at a major expansion from its current delivery platforms of computers, PS3s and Sony Bravia TVs:
Quickflix continues to expand its distribution network for its digital service with Australia & New Zealand’s many iPad and iPhone owners soon also being introduced to unlimited streaming of movies and TV series. Quickflix will also launch on Panasonic Viera TV’s and Samsung Smart TVs, Galaxy Tab and smartphones over the coming weeks. Further major device platform and content deals are expected to be announced in the coming quarter.
