    Do you subscribe to any video on demand services?

    I recently switched from LoveFilm to Netflix which seems to be better.

    Never heard of LoveFilm.. but Netflix has always seemed like a decent service for watching movies and tv.
    Sadly I refuse to sign up because I'm afraid that I will be watching even MORE movies.
    So far I have resorted to RedBox and the last Blockbuster in my city.
    I only get a movie for a dollar. So hopefully i'm spending less than the $7 a month for Netflix.
    Otherwise, I might as well sign up, right?

    Is it worth writing up a comparison Danrok? Especially given the Linux focus or lack of it of a provider!

    LoveFilm is Amazon UK's instant video arm.

    Whoa, wait a second, are you saying Netflix doesn't run in Linux?

    Have you got Wine installed? There could be some potential for a nice article with this.

    Of course... I was just joking. I use Wine with PlayOnLinux for every game I test.
    Good point... a guide for running plugins like Unity 3D
