    Anyone use either of these?

    I've been using Netflix for free for the last 3 months or so, but the username and password has expired on my mates account! lol

    I found the film library a bit limited, but there was the occasional film I would watch if I came across it. Looking at LoveFilm, they seem to be more up to date, anyone have a LoveFilm account, feedback?

    I'm using my ipad and iphone to watch these.

    I had LoveFilm, thought it was ****. They didn't really explain anything to you when you first took it out. As they only let you have one film at a time (on DVD anyway) I ordered all of the Godfather/Scarface as I wanted to watch them all over one weekend. One came instantly and after 2 months of waiting for the others I got fed up and sent it back then one other film arrived.

    It was also a bugger to cancel and they wouldn't accept that I was leaving so I ended up having to just cancel the direct debit.

    Might be different if your watching digital versions of the films however but I have no experience of that.


    My mates got Netflix now and he loves it having moved there from LoveFilm

    To get more than 1 disc at a time you to be on better package. I'm on an old package which allows me to have 4 discs at home at anyone time. I also get the streaming version and it's OK there are newish films to watch, but if you want the latest & greatest then you have to pay extra. Have to say when I looked at netflix I found to very limiting.

    I've got the basic Lovefilm package which is 2 blurays per month. I haven't used the online service. We've had a lot of damaged discs, but I just keep complaining the eventually get one for free. I've also had a free months rental.

    They have a good selection of movies. I don't bother with series because aparently they don't send them in order.

    I'm more after the instant streaming side of things, can't really be bothered with Dvd's sending them back etc.

    I love Lovefilm <LOL>

    Their library is far better than Netflix, which seems to have more kids titles.

    I find the series come do come in order. There are some series I missed on TV available on line, e.g. Life on Mars and The Shield.

    LoveFilm customer service seemed non existent and when I did get through they tried to golden cuff me into staying longer by reading out some T'c and C's over the phone which I had never received. Tried Netflix too but tbh most things can be found on stream these days and elsewhere if you know what I mean.
