/ Lovefilm or Netflix
I've got both, mostly watch on iPad, sometimes on PS3 or PC.
Until about a month ago Netflix was miles better on iPad because LoveFilm crashed all the time. Now it's more balanced. LoveFilm has a wider choice of movies and Netflix has a lot of good US TV a lot of which has never made it to freeview TV in the UK.
LoveFilm has a lot more flashy pictures in its client but the client is also slower as a result. Netflix is fast and reliable. If I had to go for only one I'd go for Netflix but they are so cheap getting both is a reasonable option.
Netflix has subtitles which is useful but their choice of films is truely dire imho.
I have Netflix, but the UK version doesn't have great licensing - Netflix US is much better - tons more movies etc.
I tend to use a proxy to watch the US version through my UK account. works a treat.
And House Of Cards is brilliant TV
I'm disappointed with Netflix and will probably change
I tried a free month long trial with BOTH - but only Netflix had 'Breaking Bad'.
We have had Lovefilm for a while. Pretty good and the fact that it doesn't have all the biggest movies means you end up watching some real gems from time to time (and turkeys, but you can switch those off).
We have an internet-enabled TV and the control system through that is dreadful. Slow and virtually impossible to search. I wish it would allow you to build up a 'watch list' off line and then select them on the TV, but it doesn't work like that. I haven't tried the NetFlix 1 and iPlayer is also slow. It seems to be an area where the technology offered is way ahead of the user interface.
Do you need a US account to do this, or just the proxy? I have a US account now but am relocating, was hoping to be able to keep watching eth US content.
In Canada at the moment and have been using Netflix for iPad for the past month (free trial). I like it but my only gripe is that they don't have a huge choice - considering its effectively a film rental store I think they should have more.
Going try Lovefilm one now.
