Statement from Quickflix NZ

New Zealand’s premiere streaming service, Quickflix, today has welcomed news that it has been joined in the marketplace by a video streaming service from Spark, the recently re-branded Telecom New Zealand.

Quickflix NZ Managing Director, Paddy Buckley says: “We are firm believers that competition is a good thing. Quickflix has a very competitive offering and New Zealand’s largest telco entering the market shows that demand for streaming services is only increasing. The marketing that Spark will commit to its service will help grow awareness of the category as a whole, which in turn will drive demand for all streaming services.

"Since launching more than two years ago, Quickflix has streamed more than two and a half million movies and TV shows to Kiwis. It is the only service in New Zealand offering both movies and TV series, and has the flexibility of subscription and pay-per-view options. We look forward to the coming months as we continue to innovate, add more great content and deliver the best streaming service possible for Kiwis.”
