Signed up for this, spent 2 days with lots of films buffering.......bit censored really. I have a Smasung tv, Virgin broadband (at least75Meg) and tried the PS3 route, just buffering all the time at all hours of the day.

Just whinging really, sniff. :|

  • Can't you download them?
  • I use it through the PS3 with a super download speed on 1.1mbp and we habe no buffering with it. We don't run it on HD though as I think that need 3mbp download speed min. The only thing I don't like is the lack of new titles to watch. The kids however love it.

    I either use blinkbox and download them, cos that seems to buffer at times, or zune?? on xbox 360.....none of which answers your question, which wasn't in fact a question, just a whinge...:)

    If your ISP will let you access it haha. (Yes, I know there are multiple ways around it..)

    Looking at getting Netflix, tried Lovefilm and it was utter rubbish, plus they wouldn't stop ringing me, and they still spam my mail box. Tend to watch any documentaries on either Youtube or Alluc.

    Lovefilm, pain in the neck. Turned down their 14 money back 'guarantee' and still haven't got a refund.
    Fukk 'em.

  • Cancelled LoveFilm some time ago, streaming was horrid ended up just using the BluRay rental. Went with Netflix and was disappointed with the content however streaming was more reliable and better quality (quality was shockingly bad on LoveFilm)

    Use a US unblock service to get the American version with a much larger library.

    I wouldn't bother with Netflix if I was you, it's sh*t. It's just full of old cr*p tv shows and films. We had it, then cancelled it.

    I was with Tesco DVD rental.

    From the 1st Aug this year, they transfered my account to Lovefilm (the films came from there anyway, so I didn't think it would make a difference). At the time of the swap, I was on an "account holiday" and so receiving no films.

    They sent me an email to say that the holiday was coming to an end on Sat 22nd Sept and that "DVDs would soon be winging their way towards my door" :roll: Since then, NOTHING.

    I checked my yesterday and it said I was on account holiday until 22nd, DUH! but that date has passed! So I 'manually' ended the holiday. I've written to them to ask why this was, but they don't even understand the question.




    BTW. I've found I can now download films too since the switch. How big is a film? I'm wondering how many I can watch before my ISP starts getting arsey.


    The older I get, the better I was.

    I have been caught out by that and now allow 1Gb per film. They are less than that but I am playing safe.
    None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.
  • Recently signed up to 3 months for the price of 1 on Lovefilm - had no buffering problems at all using PS3 and on BT Infinity. Tried Netflix - kids enjoyed it but there's censored all content on it so wouldn't bother with again until they got more studios on board.

    I use Netflix - no buffering problems either on my PC or PS3 (virgin 30mb broadband).

    Don't really use it for films though mostly for old TV series.

    Netflix is GREAT. If you connect your device via a USA DNS you will get the USA Version of Netflix which is 100 times better then the UK version

    Got lovefilm on Samsung smart tv and ps3 and no buffering at all. HD streaming looks great.
    Films get sent really quickly through the post and not had any problems whatsoever. Got 8meg broadband.
