Quickflix WatchNow Movie Streaming Coming To Xbox 360 Later This Year

Quickflix already offers its WatchNow streaming movies service on computers, TVs and the PS3. It now has its foot in the other main console camp with a deal to offer the service via the Xbox 360 as well.

Quickflix's announcement is light on details, saying only that the service will be available to XBox Live subscribers in Australia and New Zealand "later in 2012". As we saw last week, the range of movies through WatchNow (and its main rivals in the movie streaming space) still needs some improvement, though that hasn't stopped 3000 people a month signing up since launch. It's good to see the range of device options expanding; I'm presuming tablets will be next.


    I noticed they added HBO stuff to their watch now lineup (apparently). However looking at what they're advertising, it's hardly compelling, it's all fairly old stuff. It would be decent if you could actually get current HBO programming day in date with it being shown in the US.

    Interesting. Wonder if this means XBMC and Boxee apps are in the pipeline too.

    Xbox Live subscribers or "Gold" subscribers as every other video app seems to be !!!
