Hoyts to launch their own movie streaming service in early 2013

Movie chain Hoyts will launch their own movie-streaming service early next year

In Australia, we don't have many options when it comes to movie streaming services, but it looks like that set of options will expand by at least one large company next year with Hoyts set to launch their own movie streaming service early next year.

Hoyts' movie streaming service will begin "from 2013" and will have new releases arrive on a pay-per-view basis, but there are also rumbles of an all-you-can-eat (or watch) subscription model that would be coming in "later 2013". Hoyts will also rebrand their own Oovie DVD Kiosk business as Hoyts Kiosk.

 

Now the question is how will it arrive - on devices, or through a site or app, and in what quality? Are we talking DVD quality, or are they going to finally step up and offer 1080p in some form. Hopefully they work with local ISPs and get some servers into their datacenters so we can have quota-free movie-streaming goodness.
