Quickflix For Xbox 360 Adds Kinect Support, Releases October 30

We finally have a launch date for Quickflix on the Xbox 360: October 30. Quickflix has also confirmed that the Xbox version will include support for gesture and voice control via Kinect.

A statement to the ASX confirms the release date and the Kinect feature set:

In what is one of the most anticipated platform launches for Quickflix streaming so far, its Xbox service will make full use of the game console’s Kinect features of hand gesture and voice control for browsing and playing favourite movies at home.

Quickflix announced its plans to offering its streaming WatchNow service via the Xbox 360 back in April, and suggested in August that it would launch "very shortly". Yesterday, it announced plans to offer WatchNow on D-Link streaming devices, expanding a range that already includes smartphones, consoles and TVs. If Quickflix fails to scale Netflix-like heights in Australia, it won't be for lack of device support.

    All it's missing now is titles worth watching...bring on Netflix!

    New content being added now.
    Netflix have no plans to come here at the moment.
    The content on quickflix is as good or better than bigpond etc.
    They are all subject to the same rules at the moment of how quickly the content gets to stream.
    That is all changing now.

    You've already has almost a YEAR to add content and you still only have less than 500, not much more than what you started with, and expect people to pay pricing as if you already had thousands!
    You'll never have the range of DVD, and you never made a cent out of that household friend, how are you going to make money with less content in an unfamiliar format?
    As if Netflix would tell you their plans. Uproar North, Strike South.

    If you actually browse the quickflix catalogue, you'll notice they have a huge catalogue of cult flicks..
    not to mention that these guys are aussies, competing with global big shots like netflix. i think they're doing pretty well..

      They have a huge range of *DVDs*, yes. That's not what's going to be on your Xbox, is it?
      And they are not competing with Netflix. That's not available in Australia.
      Even compared to other Australian services, their *streaming* selection is pitiful after nearly a year in operation.

    What's the bet the price is going to be absurd. I'll be happy if they have an online only price of less than $18 per month. I'd pay that. Anything more and it's starting to get close to the same price as a VPN and Netflix.
