According to a report from Reuters, the US movie rental service is on its way to our shores. The streaming service has said that it will offer unlimited movies and TV shows via a subscription package similar to the one they host in the US.
The service is currently available on the Xbox 360, PS3 and even on the Wii in the US so we would expect it to appear on our consoles around the time of launch too.
This could potentially be great news for those of us who want an alternative to the PS3 LoveFilm’s sub-standard streaming picture quality and the PS3 and 360’s high pricing on their digital movie stores. Netflix has also become known for offering slightly older, esoteric content which often throws up some great old TV shows or movies that we would otherwise have forgotten about.
We’ll keep our ears close to the ground for pricing structure and content announcements.
