Love Film Instant - A Movie Lover's Dream

by kaazoom

It doesn't seem many years ago that everyone was hiring out VHS video tapes, this was followed by renting DVDs. Things have moved on again, now you can stream movies from the web.

Hiring out DVDs was very popular, and at one time most towns had a DVD rental shop. A couple of years ago new DVD rental companies started up that allow you to rent DVDs directly from their website. The DVDs are sent directly to your door via the postal service. There is no extra charge for postage and no late fees. No more going to the shop and no worries about getting the DVD back on time.

LoveFilm.Com is one of these services. I have had an account with them for about two and a half years. I pay one small monthly fee which allows me to have up to 2 DVDs out at a time. I usually manage to watch 4-5 DVDs a week and pay £9.99 a month for this service, which I think is great value. Plus I get access to nearly 7,000 movies that I can stream direct to my TV via the internet. LoveFilm's turnover for getting DVDs sent to me is very quick. It usually takes about 48 hours from posting a DVD back to them, to getting another one delivered to my home. Of course, this does depend on the postal service.

For an additional fee you can also rent games from LoveFilm for a number of different platforms.

Love Film Instant Or NetFlix

 LoveFilm.Com is only available in Europe. It recently became part of the Amazon group of companies, and so it does have a very professional team behind it. They were one of the first companies to introduce this type of postal DVD rental service to the UK, and the first to allow streaming of movies via the internet. But streaming was only available if you bought one of their more expensive DVD rental packages.


 In 2012 launched a new service call LoveFilm Instant. LoveFilm Instant gives you access to nearly 7,000 movies and TV programs for only £4.99 a month. This makes it terrific value for money. This new service was setup in response to the introduction of NetFlix.Com into the UK market.

 The main difference between NetFlix and Lovefilm instant is that Lovefilm concentrates mainly on movies, whereas Netflix has a much larger selection of television programs. This is changing as more and more TV programs are being added to LoveFilm Instant every week alongside, many new movies. Unlike Netflix, LoveFilm also allow you to digitally rent new and old movies, many of which are exclusive to their streaming service, for 48 hours via a computer for the additional price of £2.49-£3.49, a bit like the service provided by Sky Movies. LoveFilm Instant is also slightly cheaper than NetFlix

Does Love Film Instant Provide A Good Service?

In the two and a half years I have been with them I have found LoveFilm.Com to be excellent value for money. Renting DVDs is very easy, and the fact there are no late fines means there is no rush to watch your rental within 24 hours. Postage is free and orders are dispatched very promptly.





 Likewise LoveFilm Instant is also an excellent service. Streaming is fast (although it does depend on your broadband connection) and the picture quality of movies is as good as watching a DVD. LoveFilm have a huge range of movies in their catalog from the latest DD release, to golden oldies, plus numerous movies from around the world. All in all it is a great service for all movie lovers.

This is a very interesting article making me think about the old fashioned cable providers. There's the current generation of cable never getters and those before them who are quickly becoming cable cutters and with that comes the question is the cable company a dinosaur soon to reach extinction? Seems like only yesterday the brick and mortar movie rentals where all the rage. This is a fast paced industry. I love movies. Thanks for the 411 on instant film access.
