Lovefilm counter Netflix appearance with subs discount

Just hours after streaming film service Netflix launched on both PS3 and Xbox 360 in the UK, rival Lovefilm has reduced the price of its service to undercut it.

As of today a Lovefilm account costs just £4.99 a month in the UK. Before the cut it cost £5.99 – the same price that Netflix went live with this morning.

The service is available on Xbox 360, PS3 and iPad, amongst others.

“Customers tell us they love Lovefilm because of the value, choice and innovation we offer in subscription film and TV entertainment,” Lovefilm CEO Simon Calver stated.

“We offer customers an unparalleled range of titles, including exclusively available blockbusters, with over 70,000 DVDs, Blu-rays, films, TV shows, Video Games and streaming alternatives conveniently available for customers to watch in the location of their choice.

“Our two million members can look forward to us adding even more world class content, in a variety of formats, to be delivered across an ever expanding range of digital platforms."

I'm sure this was £4.99 before Netflix appeared!

Anyway...“Customers tell us they love Lovefilm because of the value, choice and innovation we offer in subscription film and TV entertainment,”!

I left Lovefilm becuase it was overpriced, the features they had for rental never worked properly, and for over 2 years they haven't been able to rent out Universal titles because they haven't been willing to pay for the rental licence (and please note they never officially told customers this and never reduced price despite a reduced service. All they did do was remove the whole "we rent any UK title" bit from their site)

And the worst...even though I was on the top package I still had to pay to stream movies! Frankly, given the choice, I'd pay a pound more for Netflix. At least they may know what customer service is!
