LoveFilm launches app for Apple iPad users

LoveFilm has announced the launch of its iPad app, which will allow Apple tablet users to stream movies and television shows while on the go. Still no word on an Android version though

LoveFilm has today launched an iPad version of its online film and TV subscription service that will allow users to stream films and movies on their Apple tablets, a spokesperson for the company has revealed.

The LoveFilm app, which is free to download from Apple’s App Store on both the iPad and iPad 2, will give users access to the company’s digital library of films and television shows.

LoveFilm members can instantly watch, pause, fast-forward and rewind their movie stream, view trailers and add to their DVD rental list on the go.

It will charge users a capped monthly subscription fee, which varies per viewing package, on a month-by-month basis. New movie releases and other premium content, however, are charged on an individual basis.

A similar service was announced last year for the Sony PlayStation 3, which presented movie boffins with the option of streaming video content via their games consoles.

LoveFilm doesn’t have any plans to release an Android version yet but a company spokesperson said they’re not ruling it out.

The announcement comes just a day after the company announced it had signed an exclusive streaming deal with StudioCanal, the production company responsible for the Terminator series of films.

LoveFilm, which also operates in Germany, Sweden, Norway and Denmark, has also secured deals with a number of other independent film distributors including Momentum Pictures and eOne, which is responsible for The Twilight Saga movies and the upcoming remake of The Three Musketeers.

LoveFilm has also invested heavily in the way it distributes films to its members. Currently, movie fans can choose to receive DVDs by post or stream them through a series of devices including their PCs, PS3 consoles and, of course, the iPad.
