Lovefilm Instant PlayStation 3 app updates, adds 720p HD streams and wishlist

Lovefilm Instant on the PlayStation 3 has updated, finally bringing HD streams and a new wishlist feature to the service. 

The new Lovefilm app now also supports Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound along with 720p high definition streams and a new wishlist feature. 

The so-called ‘Watchlist’ service lets Lovefilm subscribers create unlimited playlists of movies and TV shows, making it easier to queue up titles for weekend-long marathon sessions.
