LoveFilm DVD service closed by Amazon

Anyone else on the Forum use LoveFilm and upset by its closure at the end of October?

I have Amazon Prime, and even adding Netflix won't replicate the huge range of movie and TV content available on LoveFilm.

Online download services very much weaker than the old DVD postal-rental.

That seems like a strange old tech decision for a high tech household FE!

My wife is a big fan of foreign films, and Cinema Paradiso has a fine selection. Sometimes, low-tech has its uses, as lots of Cinema paradiso fans have discovered.

So far in our Cinema Paradiso testing it looks like an excellent replacement to LoveFilm. The discs arrive just like LoveFilm, and the selection process is possibly even better!

Cinema Paradiso looks like an very interesting alternative.I occasionally use my local lending library to borrow DVD's at £1.10-an-item for a week on a concessionary ticket loan {it's £2.20 normally].
