Lovefilm UK – The best choice of films. Try for Free!
There are various packages available ranging from £5.99 per month for a basic package which provides 3 DVD rentals a month supplied one at a time to £14.99 a month which includes instant online streaming of film without limit, unlimited DVD rentals supplied three at a time and games in place of DVD rentals if required.
The DVD, Blu-Ray and Game rentals by mail works by you creating a list of titles you want to rent and marking them according to priority in which you want to watch them. You are then sent items from your list which may not always be sent in order of priority. As rentals are sent by post there can sometimes be a bit of a delay in receiving new discs – which is where the online streaming comes in handy, as you can just nip online and watch a film if you need to while waiting for your discs to arrive.
Discs arrive in a tear open pouch which can be resealed to send the discs back. You are also sent additional return envelopes. The return envelopes are freepost.
The discs come in separate plastic sleeves with a built in cleaning fibre so discs are very rarely scratched or damaged. Each sleeve has a sticker to tell you what the film is with a small amount of information about it.
Occasionally with disc deliveries you will get handy money off vouchers and offers for things which have included online food shopping and cases of wine. But you are not swamped with marketing calls, emails or post when signing up to lovefilm.
As a special launch offer for their new package you can opt just to watch movies online with their streaming package for £4.99 a month.
With over 70,000 DVD’s and Blu-Rays to choose from and over 5500 films online (not including box office) you won’t be short on choice for what to watch.
The Box Office section on their website means you can pay separately from your subscription to watch new films, some of which aren’t even out on DVD to buy yet for just a couple of pounds.
The lovefilm website is easy to use and navigate and the quality of the online streamed films is excellent with a high amount of HD titles available.
If retro classics and B Movies are your thing, lovefilm is sure to have something right up your street, with lots of hidden gems and forgotten favourites to be found.
As an Amazon subsidiary you can now even watch films via a Kindle Fire.
A great feature of lovefilm is the ability to pay up front for further discount on your package and the option of payment breaks and breaks in service. So if you are going on holiday for example you can simply pause the service and resume when you get back.
Lovefilm is a great service that has a package to suit everyone and if you love films it really is a must.
