Lovefilm headed to UK PS3s next month Although the video has since been removed, a video on YouTube has confirmed that the streaming service Lovefilm is headed to PlayStation 3 consoles next month.
The video was available for a number of hours on the Lovefilm official YouTube channel.

Lovefilm has thousands of movies available for streaming, and is a smaller but similar service to Netflix in the United States and Canada.

The service will be free for all current Lovefilm subscribers. A two-week free-trial will be available for new would-be subscribers.

Amazon is in talks to purchase the rental company, expected to bid up to 200 million pounds for the remaining 58 percent stake they don't already own.

Because Lovefilm is not available in the US and Netflix is not available in the UK.

the problem in the UK with streaming is most ISP caps now are between 10 & 40 gig. with unlimited, limited (100-300) bundle services being 25+ per month.
