Posted on 17-Feb-2014 13:42. | Tags Filed under: News.

New deals with Disney, NBC Universal and BBC Worldwide Australia & New Zealand expand Quickflix offering in quality TV drama series.

Quickflix today announced that it has entered into agreements with The Walt Disney Company Australia, NBC Universal and BBC Worldwide ANZ to license popular and award-winning TV series programming for its streaming service.

Content licensed under these new agreements includes seasons of Emmy Award-winning drama series Downton Abbey, Golden Globe Award-winning US comedy series Parks and Recreation, BAFTA-winning Mrs Brown's Boys and other series from NBC Universal; drama series Revenge, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and other series from Disney/ABC Television Group; as well as hit series Sherlock, Orphan Black, Doctor Who and many other series from BBC Worldwide ANZ.

The TV series - as well as many others - will be made available through the Quickflix pay-per-episode service, which will launch in the next few weeks, adding hundreds of hours of additional premium viewing. Quickflix has also renewed its commitment with BBC Worldwide ANZ under a multi-year deal to license quality drama content for its subscription streaming service.

Commenting on the new TV programming, Quickflix NZ Managing Director Paddy Buckley said “We are delighted to be entering into these new content deals which add to our existing arrangements with major Hollywood studios and networks. The content will service increasing demand from our existing customers and attract new customers to Quickflix.”
