Fast growing EzyFlix.tv expects a spike in sales after becoming the first Australian video-on-demand and download-to-own provider to fully integrate with Samsung’s WatchOn application.
EzyFlix.tv is now accessible via Samsung’s WatchOn application for Samsung Smart TV, Samsung Galaxy Smartphones, Galaxy Note Tablets and Galaxy Tab Tablets. This allows users to browse a large range of films and TV shows through the app, choose whether to rent or buy in HD or SD and then choose which Samsung device they’d like to watch content on (turning their smartphone or tablet into a remote control for their Samsung Smart TV).
The alliance catapults EzyFlix.tv into a market-leading position, offering twice the range of feature films as its nearest competitor on the Samsung Smart TV, and exclusively providing a cache of popular new release movies such as Wolf of Wall Street, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, The Book Thief and American Hustle.
Craig White, CEO and co-founder of Access Digital Entertainment, the company behind EzyFlix.tv, said the alliance with Samsung was a win for customers wanting to be in total control of their entertainment options and means of viewing.
“We are excited that Samsung has chosen to partner with us to provide Samsung Smart TV and Samsung WatchOn users the best value and the most versatile way to enjoy their movie collections and gain further access to the widest range of TV shows and films to buy or rent,” Mr White said.
EzyFlix.tv offers ‘Cloud Access’, a feature that stores customers’ movies and TV show collections in the cloud. They can then be accessed at any time on any connected device at no additional cost.
“No more lost or scratched DVDs or recurring charges for the family’s favourite movies. When buying from EzyFlix.tv, customers can use their Samsung Smart TV to play back the content they own, as well as stream and download for viewing on Samsung smart phones and tablet devices.”
Mr White says consumer interest in EzyFlix.tv has been accelerated by its year-old partnership with UltraViolet, which allows customers who buy participating DVD or Blu-ray discs from any retailer to redeem the digital copy from EzyFlix.tv. Customers can then download or stream the movie to their portable device, and now the Samsung Smart TV.
“No other retailer in Australia is even close to matching the service and value EzyFlix.tv is able to offers its customers. It’s an exciting position to be in and one we’re determined to grow and capitalise on.”
