Netflix bring their streamertainment to the UK. Yes, streamertainment.
They’re charging £5.99 per month for unlimited streaming, with your first month free as part of an initial launch offer. Content is varied, with Netflix saying that: “At launch, Netflix is offering films and TV programmes from All3Media, the BBC, CBS, Channel 4′s 4oD, Disney UK & Ireland, ITV, Lionsgate UK, MGM, Miramax, Momentum Pictures, NBCUniversal, Paramount, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox and Viacom International Media Networks.”
Once you’re signed up, you can access their library through your PC, Mac, PS3, Wii, and Xbox as well as Smart TVs and Smart TV adapters and iOS and Android devices. No messing about – Netflix is HERE.
There’s more about it all in a very lively thread over at HotUKDeals, which was started by avid member Gunnzie.
EDIT: It looks as though Lovefilm have responded by freezing their unlimited streaming price at £4.99 per month. It was launched as a special offer last month but they have said that the price won't be increasing.
