Listed on the Australian Stock Exchange in 2005, it has amassed a collection of more than 60,000 movie and TV series titles and more than 120,000 subscribers. Its largest shareholder is HBO Inc owned Time Warner.
The company provides a monthly flat-fee service for the rental of DVD and Blu-ray titles. A subscriber creates an ordered list, referred to as their Quickflix Queue, of movies to rent. The movies are delivered individually via Australia Post. Discs are sourced, packed and shipped from fulfillment centres located across the country. The individual postage-paid envelopes arrive within one day to most of Australia. The subscriber can keep the rented movie as long as desired, without any formal due dates and without accruing any late fees. However, there is a limit on the number of movies (determined by subscription level) that each subscriber can have on loan simultaneously. To receive a new movie, the subscriber must mail a previous one back in the reply-paid envelope provided. Upon receipt of the disc, Quickflix ships the next available disc in the subscriber's queue (subscribers can pre-notify the return of a disc online, thereby receiving the disc sooner).
In July 2011, Quickflix announced that they would launch a subscription service to Sony's internet-connected devices, allowing Australians to stream movies and TV shows. On 21 October Quickflix announced an agreement with Sony PlayStation 3 to offer their streaming subscription service to all PS3 owners. 27 October 2011, Quickflix announced the launch of their streaming service to all connect Sony BRAVIA TVs, Blu-ray players and home theatre systems. The streaming service offered by Quickflix became available on PCs and Macintosh computers on 16 November 2011, and launched on PS3 consoles on 23 December 2011. 31 January 2012, Quickflix announced they have signed an agreement with Samsung Electronics Australia to bring the Quickflix streaming service WatchNow to Samsung's range of internet connected Smart TVs and Blu-ray players, the Galaxy TAB range and selected Galaxy Smartphones. On 6 February 2012, it was announced that HBO had taken a $10 million strategic stake in the company. In April 2012, Quickflix and Microsoft signed a deal to make WatchNow available on Xbox 360 consoles.
Quickflix announced a streaming deal with Disney, NBC Universal and BBC Worldwide in 2014. 
Quickflix was launched in 2003 in Perth, Western Australia by Stephen Langsford and Simon Hodge. Langsford had previously founded internet and web development group Method + Madness, which was acquired by Sausage Software. He also founded consulting, information technology and venturing group Change Corporation in 2002, which was similarly acquired by CSG Limited in 2007. Quickflix became publicly listed June 2005.
In December 2005, Quickflix acquired rival company HomeScreen; a move that doubled the Quickflix customer base. In April 2011, Quickflix announced the dispatch of their 10 millionth DVD, Shrek Forever After.
In July 2011, competitor BigPond Movies revealed that they would no longer continue their DVD-by-post service, selling their library of 50,000 titles to Quickflix. Quickflix launched their streaming service in New Zealand on 29 March 2012.
To celebrate their 10th birthday in 2013, Quickflix polled their members on their favourite films of the past decade, with The Intouchables taking first place. Quickflix critic Simon Miraudo selected Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind as his best on the 50th episode of podcast Talk Hard.
