Advantages: Good for a free trial
Disadvantages: Not enough new titles
I signed up for a free months trial with lovefilm and I have to say that it is not the best thing since sliced bread.
The website offers a free months trial to anyone, all you have to do is enter your details and your credit card number and remember to quit the scheme before the months trial is up. If you want it to carry on it will charge you on a month by month basis.
There are various memberships, the most basic at £5.99 gets you 4 hours online viewing and 1 dvd disk in the post. When the disc arrives just pop it in the player, watch it and then put it back in the stamped addressed envelope and post it back to them. They recommend that you get it sent recorded which doesnt cost anything extra at the post office so that if it gets lost you can prove that you sent it.
The other memberships include more dvds in the post and more online viewing. If you are interested in xbox or ps3 games then you can also rent these. The dvds are usually in good condition but if you have problems in playing the dvd then just send it back and they will send you a replacement.
I think this site is great for people who have time to watch a lot of tv. As well as films there are whole tv series, older series and films and world cinema.
I thought that the films werent very up to date as I couldnt get films that had just come out on dvd. Overall the service was good and the dvd arrived promptly, however it could be improved by investing in some newer titles.
Summary: Give it a go
