Just cancelled my LoveFilm account because i don't watch as many films as I used to. It always annoyed me that I'd get random discs off a list because I was rarely in the mood to watch what arrived and the streaming selection is so dire it's ridiculous. Their ads trumpeting it are pretty disingenuous at best. In addition, to cancel I had to speak to an incomprehensible person in India who would not deviate from their script:
Me - "I'd like to cancel my account"
Him - "As a valued customer I can reduce your monthly payments.."
Me - "No, I want to CANCEL my account"
Him "Well as a valued customer, you can take a membership holid..."
Me - "NO, I WANT TO CANCEL MY ACCOUNT NOW PLEASE".
That alone makes me pleased to have cancelled.
I tried Netflix but their selection was similarly cack so canceled before the free trial ended (don't think I watched a single thing on it).
Blinkbox is overpriced, no question, but is really the only game in town for me as they seem to have the best selection of stream-able stuff. If they can get their pricing model to something sensible (say 2 quid for a recent release) I'd definitely use it more, but £3.49 a pop for latest releases is pretty stiff. Problem is, they have no genuine competition right now so they can charge what they like. Not sure if Sky Go will make any difference or not seeing as you basically have to have a Sky TV package to get it.
