I had an offer with one of those daily deal companies. £6 for 3 months unlimited streaming and 2 films at home. I really enjoyed it, even though I do not watch many films. However, once you have had one 'offer' you cant sign up for the free month or any other daily deal offer.
It worked really well for me and saw films I wouldnt necessarily watch and caught up on some that I had wanted to see. However, the very latest films are only available if you pay extra...per film. Not fair!
Have subscribed to LoveFilm for a couple of years now and although I've had a problem viewing a small percentage of films rented from them, they have either refunded my money, sent another copy, or sent another film from my wish list. You can add or delete new titles from your list at any time and they also freeze your account while you're away on holiday if you let them know.
You can keep a film as long as you need it and once you send it back another film is on your doorstep within a couple of days.
I have been with lovefilm now for over 4 years and they are one of the very best companies for customer service they almost bend over backwards to help and solve any problems you may have .
They are the most reliable and trustworthy company i have ever dealt with . customer service is without a doubt the best and i would highly recommend them to anyone Thanks
After having unlimited subscription if you have anything on your list forget about an easy cancel process as if you have anything at home they won't cancel and if you send the discs back they allocate you another! So even though you don't have any movies at home they will say "well they're on its way", thiefs I will say, not impressed at all and never again ! NOT RECOMMENDING to ANYONE!
They need to add to genres - War Films, for instance
I really wouldn't bother, I know some people find it brilliant, but not me!
We signed up to LoveFilm Instant last night, and I have never dealt with a company that successfully managed to get me to sign up and cancel my account within 5 minutes.
I decided to signup to their Instant service, since we use an XBox for most of our entertainment, such as music, etc. They had a nice offer (3 months for £4.99) so we decided to give it a try.
Firstly, the frustration started with their website: it was slow as hell, and we had to try to sign up three times. This was partly down to poor design ( I am a software developer, so I do this for living... ).
Then, after they took payment, we discovered that the Instant service doesn't have a fraction of the videos available to what's advertised. It has a very limited selection.
Next was the XBox app: terrible! It is really slow, and no matter what we searched for, the results kept on returning "LOST" for some unknown reason. Lost indeed.
The only reason we decided to try this again was because it is an Amazon company. But I fear that they do not share the same quest for quality service:
when I commented about the service on their Facebook account, they simply deleted it. No effort was made to engage with the customer.
We used to use their DVD service a few years ago, and that was good, but the Instant account is a total waste of money.
I would not recommend this service to my worst enemy.
I've been using Lovefilm for several years, and have been generally very pleased with the service. The MAJOR problem with Lovefilm is that they are unable to offer many of the titles from Universal Studios.
For that reason alone I have just switched to Blockbuster online.
Very happy with LoveFilm, I cancelled my SkyMovies and worked out I was spending about £16 a month with blockbusters. I get all my movies from LoveFilm now, get 3 blurays at a time as well as unlimited streaming online through PC or PS3 or Xbox.
When you have finished with your blurays or DVD's, just pop them in the post free of charge, and so far my next orders have arrived in two days, excellent service. All for £13.39 a month
Poor customer services, I am a longstanding customer, any problems get the same standard letter saying sorry, they send replacement disk, they say all disks are "checked" answer why then do cracked or scratched disks that won't play arrive, went to cancel service told I had to wait until the end of the month could not do it until then.
I'm trying to get all my friends to join us, customer service is also great, I forgot my password for my online account however it only took over night before I could watch it, also when I send off the DVDs it only takes 2 days sometimes before i receive some more its absolutely awesome! recommend it to anyone
The service from Lovefilm is second to none, the selection of dvd's and bluray are excellent to. I not only rent but stream movies and series to my tv via a smart bluray player, without any hassle or interupted viewing.
The chrges are extremley gret value for money, thoroughly reccomend them, i use the 9.99 a month for two dvd's at a time, the quiker I return them the next 2 are on their way, plus unlimited and i mean unlimited streaming too!!
Very good turnaround of DVDs with the freepost 1st class service they provide.
But would I pay £9.99+ per month? No.
Most of the DVDs I had were broken and had to wipe them rigorously after they had stopped working whilst watching the film.
But, overall, very good company...impressed.
Tried to search for some films to download when I was without a TV... thought Love Film would be a good start but they don't actually have many films I wanted to watch. Film 4 Online have a much better choice and are relatively unknown compared to Lovefilm.

Never realised how easy this system could be I like 3d blu-ray films but don't always want buy them so to be able to search out your own titles and be emailed when they are on their way to your door is so convenient and to just tear off once side of envelope and stick remaining side back down with ready taped edge for return at no postage cost is fantastic it doesn't get any easier than this .
signed up with a 3 months free lovefilm offer when purchasing a xbox 360 from amazon,Said 1 st payment wouldnt be taken out of bank until 2nd july but started taking payments after on 30 days saying code was for 30 days free trial not 3 months,,the email from amazon clearly stated 3 months free but lovefilm dont want to know,,would have been no stars if i could have,,,anyone thinking of signing up to this company beware of these scams they are pulling,read reviews 1st which i didnt but wish i had

I get all the TV series here, the Wire, Dexter etc. Compared to Netflix which is rubbish Lovefilm have tons & tons of films & TV programs, including some fairly obscure UK TV series. They are quick too, I get my next Dexter about 3 days after Ive sent it back.
Been with love film a while now the post service is very good but the products they offer could be better especially with more competition appearing the games you get most need a key code to go online and as you don't get the code the game is useless to me online film offerings could be better they only have a limited amount when there are so many films out there
