I got this email which is meant to be for old customers, but I just changed the email in the URL and created a new account under that email and it worked.

(Replace youremail%40domainname.com with your email address, and use %40 instead of the @ symbol.)

https://secure.quickflix.com.au/marketing/septreactivation?login=youremail%40domainname.com&promocode=Reactivate_Sept2013

Or you might be able to sign up a new account and enter promo code 'Reactivate_Sept2013' - I haven't tested this method.

Free for 2 months of unlimited streaming and/or DVD's.

Cancel anytime before it renews (go here: https://secure.quickflix.com.au/member/myaccount or you can delete the PayPal Agreement).

    Ah you simply put in the password you want to use.

    Ok so some extra info would be nice:

    Follow the instructions above, it will fill in the username/email address part.

    Just enter what password you want and click SIGN IN. (It should really say SIGN UP)

    •  

      Sorry, wasn't very clear.

      But the promo is intended for old customers that already have an account, which is why it says 'SIGN IN'.

    ahh im surprised quickflix hasn't gone bankrupt - online content is hopeless

  • +6 votes

    Used it before, not very impressed with the service.

    Video quality is average for many films, there are no closed captions, and most of the content is also rather old unless you want to pay per play. The titles that are available for streaming is an odd mix.

    Still worth your time for a free trial to see what you think.

    Awesome!!! Loving the Quickflix as I dont have time to download movies and saves my trops and $$ to Hoyts Kiosk. Thanks so much OP! Signed up and not only do I get the post and play also found that I can stream and play a few movies instantly.

      You don't have time to download movies but instead you have time to make trips to kiosks instead? I'm confused.

      You're excitement will be short lived when you later found out there's not really much selection with quickflix. Tried it before and I was dissappointed.

      • +2 votes

        I have tried it before with a month of free trial. The selection is indeed quite limited but you know what, for free and for the fact that its posted and I am able to pick the movies while I am at work, I am loving this offer by the OP.

    Yeah signed up and I'm kinda disappointed with the selection for streaming. Can't wait for the Netflix equivalent to come to Australia….or just Netflix.

      Why wait for Netflix?

        What are you using to access it?

        • +4 votes

          If you just want to access it via a browser, there's an add-on for Chrome called Netflix unlock which lets you view all content as if you were in America, beyond that it's pretty complicated (and generally not free) to pay for a service like http://www.unblock-us.com/ so you can use other clients on your local network.

          I've been a Netflix and Hulu+ subscriber for nearly 2 years now, the last 12 months whilst on the NBN. Flawless and terrific! I'm an unblock-us user, FWIW. Have Netflx and Hulu on 2 iPads, 2 AppleTVs and a PS3 within my home, that is to say, if it has a screen it can access US streaming TV.

          Choice have a couple articles on the matter, they've been advocating it for a while.

          @LaTerrible What's the total monthly cost?

        •  

          Unotelly is where its at. You can also claim upto 6 months free by following http://www.unotelly.com/quickstart2/promo

          Total monthly cost is $13 or $8 if you can get unotelly for free.

          @scratch2k: in payment form Netflix not accepting non-us paypal account. and in credit card section asking for valid zip code (but we are in aus)
          how to solve this?

          btw I cant find 'Netflix unlock' but found 'hola unblocker' add-on to hide my location.

        •  

          @ leterrible: can we pay using aus credit card? it's asking for valid us zip code.
          wont accept aus paypal either:(

          I just googled a hotel in the States and used that as my address. Turns out I am apart of the exclusive 90210 club.

        •  

          Sorry can't help, I never actually subscribed, I'm not interested in watching movies through a clunky browser interface which is why I'm waiting for Netflix to officially launch here (i.e. never, ugh).

        • +6 votes

          unblock-us is $5/mth, Netflix $8/mth and Hulu is about $6 a month for a terrific, Foxtel-destroying catalogue of shows (Netflix price goes up or down depending on the Aussie dollar, but you're only talking about 50cents here or there). Modern Family, New Girl, SNL, Orange is the New Black, Breaking Bad (UK Netflix), Arrested Development, BBC shows have been recently added to Hulu, tons of old stuff (Wonder Years, Freaks and Geeks, Always Sunny, X-Files) and movies out the wazoo. We love it: I haven't watched commercial Aus tellv (except for ABC News Breakfast) in months.

          Sign up to unblock us using legitimate credentials (credit card, location etc).

          Sign up to Netflix using a googled Delaware address (no taxes in Delaware) and a normal credit card (at least, I use my normal Aust credit card for it, though I may have had to create a new PayPal account at this stage (a US one), but I don't remember).

          When I signed up to Hulu+ I had to use Entropay and a complicated procedure to open an account (you make an Entropay account, load that account with $10 from your normal credit card. In turn, Entropay give you a 'virtual' credit card that is not region specific (well, not specific to Australia anyway!) and you use that credit card to sign up to Hulu). Once the account was open, I bought 12 month subscription cards from US-based resellers (like iTunes cards) and applied those to my account.

          You can get 1-week trials to all of these sites, so see if a) your connection is up to task, and b) if it's even any good to your TV usage and taste!

          Grab something like Hola Unblocker for Chrome, and use it to browse both Hulu and Netflix sites while you setup your accounts.

          tunlr.net offers same service as unblock-us.com and unotelly.com but is completely free. I've almost had it a for a month and the only issue I've had so far is that when my router resets for whatever reason I have to revisit the site so that it knows DNS enquiries from my IP need rerouting or whatever they do.

          I didn't have to enter an address when signing up for Netflix or Hulu, and my 28 Degrees card worked fine for Netflix. I bought a 12-month Hulu subscription code off eBay for $20 and it's been working well for the past few months.

        •  

          Thanks for the gift card tip for Hulu+, also picked one up for $20 and now I'm subscribed until 21st October 2014! Sure beats $7.99 a month!

  •  

    From memory you could only get 4 titles per week by post (two at a time plus postage time) but hey, free is good as always.

    I tried the service for the one month standard trial, I really wanted to like it and would be happy to pay the "Australia Tax" for the $15 per month subscription, but I was so disappointed with the horrible picture quality and pathetic library that I cancelled after a few days. Not only that, but the libraries seem different between the browser based client, XBOX and mobile clients, on the xbox in particular I was struggling to find a movie more recent that 10 years. On the positive side, they do have access to a lot of TV content, HBO particularly.

    I know it's possible to jump through some hoops to get Netflix but I'd love for them to come to Australia with their full library (and HD content), I'd even pay them the Australia Tax ($15 a month would be fine) to be able to watch content through my xbox.

    From my understanding you can stream to a TV with:

    PS3
    Sony Tvs
    Samsung Smart TVs
    Xbox 360

    And… I dont have any of those.
    Just a WD Steaming media player and a Wii.

    No soup for me. Just streaming to a computer, I guess.

      Yeah that sucks but just an FYI netflix offer a 1 month free trial and if you use a service like unotelly/unblock-us then you can watch netflix on your Wii or Wii U. The interface isn't that nice on the Wii version but it does what it's supposed to and you get access to sooo much content!

    • +1 vote

      You can get netflix on wii :P you just need to reroute your DNS inquiries through tunlr.net/unblock-us.com/unotelly.com and then download the app. I should let you know that video quality isn't the best as Wii only supports 576i with composite and only 480p with component.

    hey guys, excuse my ignorance. With netflix will I be able to watch the latest tv seasons and movies with no additional cost?

    I'm hearing impaired so it would be nice to know if netflix content have subs.

    I'm used to downloading but a change would be nice.

    • +1 vote

      Most Netflix content has subtitles.

      You can watch all content on Netflix 'without additional cost' but be aware that Netflix does not usually update with the latest TV seasons and movies until long after they've aired. Hulu is more suited to recent content, though obviously they won't have every show either.

    To all the guys out there, do not subscribe to Netflix, I unfortunately did, and now my wife has taken full control of the TV,

      lol.

      You are not using Netflix the optimum way then. :)
      You can login with your PC, PS3, xbox 360, smart phones, tablets, smart tvs…all at the same time with the same account :)

      I can watch House of Cards on my PS3 while my Mrs watches Breaking Bad on her laptop. :)

      •  

        You can pay a bit more and have up to 4 simultaneous users. I share my account with a couple mates.

          what is this sorcery?

        •  

          Unotelly+Netflix go now….enter a new world of magic called unlimited entertainment. :)

          On serious note, they have some awesome foreign language movies.

    Even better when you prepay 12 month subscription with Netflix and HuluPlus for about $50-60 each using gift card numbers purchased from ebay…

    • +2 votes

      In principle I agree with this (as I've bought Hulu cards from there - $35 for 12 month of TV is alright by me!), but it is worth doing your research, as some eBay card sellers are selling cards that have been purchased with stolen credit cards or via other fraudulent means. And if you top up your account with one of those cards it'll be closed down.

      Just as an FYI for anyone whoever reads this thread :)

      •  

        I bought a $20 Hulu gift card from an eBay seller with 100% positive feedback and it's worked fine for the past two months.

    Quikflix sucks. Use Netflix on a PS3 (as well as BBC iplayer, 4od, Amazon instant video) using www.unotelly.com an alternative to unblock-us mentioned above. It's sooooo much better than a VPN.

    The PS3 is very useful - works on an xbox as well i'm told.

    The best part is the easy netflix region change - Canada/US are the best regions but UK/Mexico have some good picks.

  •  

    It offers unlimited streaming plus 2 free new releases to stream? So the unlimited streaming only applies to all old content, or some special selection?

  •  

    Ok, signed up, but when I click play, after it loads silverlight, I get "Device is registered to another account"?

    I wanted to try this, because I was interested in seeing if my internet would be fast enough to stream (though no way quota would last). Seems like they have something wrong with DRM…

    I have subscribed to Quickflix since October 2010 and I think it is great. Every week I receive a 1080p Blu-ray disc in the mail. For Netflix streaming to be as good as Blu-ray you're going to need NBN-classic, not NBN-Turnbull.

    ps: I have NBN-classic so I win twice - ha ha.

  •  

    You guys are nuts. Quickflix has a fairly extensive collection of movies. Factoring in work/uni, I definitely won't be watching all the movies that interest me in a few months.

    EDIT: unless I'm the only one thinking of a time-frame less than a year. >.>

    Apparently this one had an expiry date of 3 October, even though it wasn't specified anywhere :\
