Lovefilm or Netflix?



Any of you chaps use Lovefilm and/or Netflix, or have done in the past? If so, could you suggest which one I get out of the two?

I'm aware I can give both a month's trial, but would like a second opinion too. I'm more prepared to spend £1 more per month for Netflix if it means it is better.

I'm gussing you're only interested in streaming movies. I'm thinking about going for LoveFilm, because you can get a deal for both streaming and physical copies. I'm not sure if Netflix have the same.

Yeah, and some TV series' aswell if there's any I, or the rest of the family, fancy watching.

Netflix is just unlimited streaming content, yeah. Flat subscription fee of £6 a month.

In terms of streaming, Netflix was much better last I checked.

If you're looking for something specific, go with Lovefilm. When it comes to the latest releases, a certain classic film you've been meaning to watch, a select 2005 blockbuster etc. you can't guarantee whatsoever it'll be on Netflix but you'll definitely be able to rent the disc from Lovefilm.

Netflix, however, is good to find things that you forgot exist from a few years back, obscure films (often shit) that you never thought about watching and most of all - TV shows (unfortunately they're unable to have HBO shows though). Oh, and the US Netflix is miles better than the UK one.

I personally use Lovefilm to rent video games and Netflix for streaming. £6 a month each.

I just rejoned netflix for AD, and find it to be poor selection. I think I have succumb to only buying movies on demand, sure its more money but at least I am picking a movie than just making due with the selection at hand.

I downloaded the Amazon app on my PS3 and have purchased a few $2.99 movies. I also purchase thru our verizon fios but those are prices are high.

I use both.
Netflix for streaming and Lovefilm for renting.
Both have their plus points.

Good question @Berry. It's a decision more and more people I think are finding themselves with, simply because of Sky and Virgin's high pricing.

Both @Haribo and @Makavelian are quite right. There's definitely pros and cons to both Netflix and Lovefilm.

I used the 1-month free trial with Lovefilm originally, and I believe I may have even extended it by a few months as I was hooked on renting out the Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood anime series on Blu-ray from Lovefilm. As mentioned already, Lovefilm are quite reliable when it comes to physical copies and receiving them in a timely fashion. You create a wish list essentially, with your most desired at the top, and Lovefilm will aim to send you the DVDs or Blu-rays you have picked towards the top of your list. I think you may have to pay extra for the renting of video games, but I'm not sure. Lovefilm as you can imagine from the name, has a vast array of film choices, but less in the way of TV shows I found, at least when streaming - with another drawback being the interface for the streaming, as it's often quite like trying to fit pieces of a jigsaw together in order to simply watch a TV series in episode order as you need research for each individual episode. This may have changed since when I last used it, but I'm sure @Makavelian and @Haribo will be able to help with this.

As for Netflix, this is the service I use monthly and have done regularly now for a long time. As far as streaming itself goes, Netflix is a step above Lovefilm I believe. It seems like there is more films available to watch through Lovefilm, but more TV shows, series and documentaries on Netflix. Fortunately as well, given that there are a lot of TV series available on Netflix, with the interface being a lot more simple and easier to use, navigating and finding what you want works more effectively and all episodes from a TV series are kept together - quite like a boxset really. Also, with Netflix, you have the potential to hugely broaden what content is available by simply paying an additional $3.99 with the website REMOVED which then opens up Netflix content from areas other than just the UK, such as USA and Canada. This in particular really is excellent, as the USA Netflix has such a wealth of content, and has obviously more recent release dates.

Ultimately Berry brother, both Lovefilm and Netflix are solid services and brilliant value for money. I'd definitely recommend using the free month trials for them both though, maybe one after the other so you can take full advantage of each service. Then after two months of free content (1-month of Lovefilm, and 1-month of Netflix), you'll probably have a strong idea or even a definite answer as to which you prefer. Go for it!

Can I just say that you really don't hear the word 'pillock' enough these days. It is a wonderful word.

Great stuff @Hunter, I was unaware of that REMOVED so I shall definitely look deeper into that avenue once my final exam's out of the way, tomorrow onwards.
