Hello there, ive just picked up a copy of today metro paper(for those that live in london), and on page 50, theres an advertisment for a company called blinkbox. Where you can stream and watch movies for free, and they are giving £5 credit as well.

Heres the link: click here
It does say that the offer is linmted to first 10,000 customers and closes on 21/12/2009.
Ive been on the site, and it looks ok, and it seems to be affiliated to BT as well, and films range from 99p-£3.99. But my question IS.....is this a legitimate website to use for streaming please or is it a CON?????

It seems to be, judging from reports in the Daily Telegraph and The Guardian. The British Film Institute has also signed a deal with them.

Google Blinkbox and see the links.

I meant to say, it is not a "con", and seems to be a genuine site.
