Responding to this opportunity Quickflix CEO Stephen Langsford said “ We are very pleased to enter an agreement with Presto, backed by Australia’s largest entertainment company, and the number one free – to – air broadcaster.

Luke Hopewell of Gizmodo.com.au commented on the competition with Stan, Netflix and upcoming activities concerning Presto and Seven. Will this deal create a new flurry in the pricing and marketing of online streaming services? Will Quickflix review subscription rates? Or will the upgrade to the User Interface pressure the current economics? What we are seeing is both companies currently offering incentives to prospective subscribers.
