Quickflix To Offer Movie Rental Downloads

QuickflixLogo.gifConsidering how close Quickflix is to Netflix in name, I've got my fingers crossed that today's announcement that Quickflix will begin offering movie rentals to download online will be a precursor to Quickflix appearing on Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, DVRs and all other manner of home theatre gear.The downloads will apparently be in standard def quality, and will "mirror standard Australian DVD retail and rental costs". As Gus over at Lifehacker points out though, to make it in this market, Quickflix is really going to have to hop into bed with an ISP post-haste if it wants to compete with TiVo, iTunes and BigPond.Still, having more opportunities to download films legally is a step in the right direction in my book.
