Quickflix, the ASX-listed supplier of streaming and online movies and television shows that's targeting sales in New Zealand, has signed a content licensing agreement with ITV Studios Global Entertainment.

The agreement with production company ITV will span Australia and New Zealand and add to Quickflix's range of British drama TV series.

"ITVS GE will deliver hundreds of hours of television from recent serious such as Trial Retribution and Above Suspicion, as well as the best from past hit series such as Cold feet, Prime Suspect, Hornblower and Brideshead Revisited," Quickflix said in a statement.

Last week the company launched a movie subscription streaming service in New Zealand.
Subscribers to Quickflix digital streaming will have access to programmes from May. The service will become a challenger to Sky Network Television once content is sent via ultrafast broadband.

The stock was unchanged at 14 Australian cents apiece in trading on the ASX yesterday. That values the company at A$63 million.
