I'm a big fan of the PlayStation 4 but it's definitely lagging behind the Xbox One when it comes to its media capabilities, particularly here in Australia where the selection of apps is particularly limited. Sony Australia is attempting to remedy this and the first step is today's announcement that Netflix and Vidzone are now available on PlayStation 4.
Quickflix, for me, seems like the big one.
"It’s well recognised that PlayStation fans love all forms of digital entertainment, whether its music, TV, movies or games and we remain committed to delivering the most immersive digital entertainment experiences on our platforms." said Michael Ephraim, Managing Director, Sony Computer Entertainment Australia. "We are excited to have an agreement in place with such an innovative market leader like Quickflix that brings PS4 owners, amazing entertainment content to enjoy."
Quickflix price plans start at $14.99 per month. Seems reasonable.
I am having a lot of issues streaming content on my PS4 and my Xbox One. I previously streamed all my content from a laptop to either the PS3 or the Xbox 360. Both next gen consoles feel a lot more closed off that before, so I am considering a Quickflix subscription as a solution for my woes. Anyone here use Quickflix — would you recommend the service?
