Trying out Netflix and Lovefilm for a month before deciding which to keep.

Any opinions out there as to which is the better package?

Unless things have changed recently, Lovefilm were not transmitting Surround Sound with their movies which, for me, is very important so I went with Netflix. Neither of them have a huge amount of films that fit my bill but there is no contract length so you can just stop paying if you feel you've 'had enough'

Amazon have owned Lovefilm for several years, without making a song and dance about it, but there's a rebranding going on at present, with the Amazon name splashed all over Lovefilm, and a push to make you move over to using your Amazon sign in details. I fully expect Lovefilm to disappear over the next few years, and for the whole thing to be incorporated under the Amazon brand.

I have had both Lovefilm and Netflix for about 18 months, and rarely watch either. But when I do, I like the choice of having both, and they're really not that expensive. I think Lovefilm's presentation is better and easier to navigate, though Netflix have finally addressed the main annoyance, by letting you add interesting titles to a 'to watch' list. I reckon Netflix's picture quality is still better than Lovefilm's.

I'm seriously contemplating ditching Sky, unplugging my aerial and stopping paying my TV licence. You can legally do that with streaming services (as long as you don't watch anything that's simultaneously being broadcast via terrestrial or satellite TV.) Lovefilm + Netflix subscriptions together cost less than the monthly price of a TV licence.
