EZYFLIX.TV PARTNERS WITH SONY PICTURES HOME ENTERTAINMENT & ABC TO DELIVER HOT DIGITAL CONTENT ACROSS ALL DEVICES
Viewers across New Zealand hungry for the hottest international video content can now access hit titles like Breaking Bad, Weeds, The Tudors, Community, The Twilight Saga and The Host following the announcement of an exciting partnership between Access Digital Entertainment (ADE) and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
The collaboration allows ADE’s new online streaming and download-to-own service, EzyFlix.tv, to offer both movies and television franchises from the prestigious studio, the latest of which will be available following their first broadcast in New Zealand.
ADE has also finalised an agreement with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) Commercial giving consumers in New Zealand and Australia the ability to stream or buy titles like Angry Boys, Summer Heights High, Bob the Builder, Thomas and Friends and Thorne.
Craig White, CEO and co-founder of ADE, said that local consumers are demanding more timely access to new release movies and television shows, and are tired of feeling like they’re behind the rest of the world.
“EzyFlix.tv has more than 2000 titles on offer and is the only service in the country offering users digital television content to buy. We are thrilled that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and the ABC have chosen to partner with us to provide New Zealanders with better access to the programs and films they love,” he said.
EzyFlix.tv offers ‘season passes’ to television shows including alerts to each episode’s availability, along with bite-size options will also allow users to ‘snack’ on TV. For example, consumers can purchase an episode of a hit show from just $2.99.
Mr White said EzyFlix.tv is the first service of its kind in NZ, providing affordable and convenient video content to rent or own without any subscription fees, contracts or the need for a set top box.
“EzyFlix.tv allows people to build their own online movie and TV library in the cloud and does not lock users into one device or ecosystem – you can download a digital file and play it back anytime, anywhere and on any device including a range of PCs, smartphones, tablets and Smart TVs, either on or offline.”
