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.

      Yes a sad fact . my last three cars were mondeos .i loved the last one a 2.2 TDCI it had a slot for 6 cds which I loved . the one before was a Ghia estate built in sat nav. and the one before just basic .  All brilliant tow cars.  I have changed to a Kuga automatic . It is no where near as nice as my mondeo . The boot is small I’m not happy with it at all . I just keep comparing it . But it does tow very well.  I just have to get used to it I suppose unles can find a 3 year old top of the range one . The only one I saw last year was over 20K and bright red I couldn’t afford that and couldn’t have lived with the colour .

      I think the MK 3 Cortina was the first one I drove. It was a rental car from Aberdeen Airport. It was the first car I had encountered which had a single key for door and ignition, not to mention the first car I had driven with a steering lock. On the key ring was a short length of thick, stiff copper wire. The rental agent explained that they were having trouble with the Ford steering locks and before inserting the key, the copper wire was inserted and vigorously worked up and down to free the tumblers before the key could be inserted and  turned! My father had a Corsair 1600E, it kept randomly cutting out only to start again a few minutes later. This was eventually diagnosed as a plastic fuel filter mesh on the floor of the fuel tank. This was softened by petrol and getting drawn into the fuel line, the car stopped - the softened plastic floated out of the pipe and the car could be re-started - until next time! A friend had one of the last Cortinas, the factory had added all sorts of un-ordered stuff (presumably to use them up?). His 1100cc car came with Air Conditioning - the drawback was if you turned on the Air Con at the traffic lights, it would stall the car!     Cheers Keith
