Netflix VS LoveFilm video

Established US video streaming service Netflix has launched in the UK, putting it in direct competition with Amazon’s LoveFilm offering. So how are they different? We compare the pair. Price First and foremost is the price. For unlimited movie streaming, Netflix will cost you £5.99 a month. LoveFilm’s equivalent service is a touch cheaper at £4.99. Both the apps are free to download, but unless you’re paying monthly, the apps will only let you watch movie trailers and organise your account. Catalogue When it comes to the catalogue LoveFilm wins it giving you over 70,000 titles to choose from. Netflix say they have tens of thousands available in their catalogue. However, we did a quick test searching for Steven Spielberg - and LoveFilm gave us over 30 results, with Netflix struggling to find one. Content Partners Both have partnered with all the big UK Broadcasters and Film Studios including BBC Worldwide, ITV, Channel 4, Lionsgate UK, MGM and Twentieth Century Fox. Compatability You can watch movies and TV shows via Netflix and LoveFilm on your Laptop, Smart TV, PS3s, XBOX, iOS and Android devices. Extras If you upgrade to £5.99 a month, LoveFilm allows you to order movies by post, whereas Netflix is a streaming-only package in the UK.
