    Happy about this, mostly because it should force Lovefilm to start being more competitive with their pricing plans

    The streaming NetFlix service is somewhat crap, imo. If it had "everything" they offered, it would be a no-brainer, but there's a limited selection of new stuff in there.

    That's just it - I'm kind of assuming the Anytime+ agreement covers all digital distribution/streaming, as that's what it is in a round about kind of way. Big assumption though, granted. Don't really know the detail

    Considering you can get the physical DVD/BDROM rentals, game rentals, and access to streaming across their various platforms for 12+ a month it's not too bad? I'm on the 15 a month deal, and my only complaint is the lack of streaming HD.

    It's a pretty serious complaint, mind you.

    Anytime isn't considered DD, it's still under TV broadcasting regulation.

    Sopranos isn't on Lovefilm to stream. Doesn't prove that Netflix couldn't get it but since the HBO catalogue vanished from everything but Sky I wouldn't be surprised they have anytime, which pretty much means streaming exclusive. Don't forget you can view this stuff on you computer etc. so not strictly TV only.

    All I want is HD streaming of their complete library, don't care if it's Lovefilm or Netflix.

    Easy peasy...

    Not in the UK they do not, Sky have that one all tied up.

    I used to be a gamer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    The satellite TV company has signed a content deal with HBO, the US channel that revolutionised the television market by launching a pay-TV service that screens big-budget dramas. The Sky deal, expected to be announced this morning, will give Sky access to HBO's archive and all forthcoming shows over the lifetime of the agreement. It is believed to be worth around 150m over five years.
    pah!

    IF you like documentaries then the Netflix streaming selection is fantastic.

    It's also great if you like watching moves you've never heard of before staring people you've never heard of before.

    There are some shocking movies on there, real direct to the bargain bucket DVD outings that make SyFy's TV movies look like The Godfather.

    IF they release the entire library to the UK and Ireland and IF it costs the same as the US version then I'll switch my account over. But I think we all know that won't be the case :rolleyes:

    Their existing library is pretty good. Must have about 100+ films and shows in my queue but you need a broad range of taste really to take full advantage of the service. It's not filled with blockbusters, so if that's your taste best stick to downloads. It's sweet to get films in the cinema over here on their service first. Like Red State, Trust_, I Saw the Devil, Thirst, Rubber, Hobo With A Shotgun, etc. They also seem to put up prequels around the time of a new movies release. Like when Scream 4 came out 1-3 appeared on their service. Same for Paranormal Activity 2. Plus some films that are near impossible to find will appear on their service, like John Carpenter's In The Mouth Of Madness. Only available on R1 DVD and 4:3 in most download places, they put it up in a high quality widescreen format and it pretty much made my week when I came across it! They have other class American TV shows on it that we haven't got easy access to either; Louie, Parks and Recreation, New Futurama, Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Caprica, etc.

    They do one month trials, so the best thing to do if you're interested is sign up and see how much you use it compared to your existing services. Using it in tandem with http://instantwatcher.com/ and http://feedfliks.com/ will help you find the best movies as well as keep a running total of how much you pay per film/tv episode. So far it's $0.15 per film for me which is pretty awesome no matter how you cut it. Especially since I mostly watch the HD content. :cool:

    Agree on the documentaries library, it's great. They've also got a pretty decent* selection of anime, if you're into that kind of stuff.**

    *mostly dubbed though :-/

    **may be into that kind of stuff

    Whats the differenc between netflix and lovefilm?

    I hate Zune because most of the movies I want to watch are purchase only and not rentals.

    Oh and on the point of Sky Atlantic, They stitched things up with HBO content when Virgin One suddenly dissapeared overnight....but if you look at the programme listings Sky Atlantic looks a bit shit and not the Golden carrot the Murdochs were hoping for.

    99 problems and being ginger is one

    It says it does on the page, maybe it's still rolling out on the various platforms. I don't think the 360 'app' is available yet either.

    Answering my own question: just signed up, and there's loads. Online selection is a lot better than Lovefilm.
