Whilst it certianly isn't as good as Netflix, I think Quickflix gets a lot more hatred than it deserves.
I don't see any "hatred" here. Just repeated observations that its content is far too poor for it to be a contender. Despite the price comparison to Sky, the lack of content means that the cheaper price still doesn't represent value.
Plus the price comparison to Sky needs to take account of the fact that Sky has an option of around $35 a month for a package of all you can eat movie channels, which include some fairly recent releases. on QF, most good movies come at an additional price.
I wish QF luck. The NZ market seriously needs a service like this. But until they address their content deficiency, I won't be joining.
