LOVEFiLM signs deal with ABC On Demand

Gives access to shows such as Desperate Housewives and Greys Anatomy

The Amazon owned company has just signed a deal which will see a huge increase in on-demand in a move that is surely to combat the arrival of Netflix

LOVEFiLM have just signed a deal which will give its customers access to the ABC On Demand service letting them stream shows in the UK such as Desperate Housewives, Greys Anatomy and also Brothers & Sisters.

This is the latest in a number of deals by LOVEFiLM and will see the likes of Castle, The Ghost Whisperer and many others hitting UK televisions thanks to the service being available on Xbox 360, Sony PS3 and also Sony connected TVs. You'll also be able to stream the shows from a computer, laptop or portable device as well.

The announcement has come just a week after Netflix, a rival movie-streaming service launched in the UK, offering its own pay monthly service with streaming on both computers and a number of devices.

With LOVEFiLM both an established service in the UK and now with these added features, it'll be interesting to see how Netflix is able to carve a market for itself.
