Lovefilm Player launches: stream full movies to your iPad

Movie fans will now be able to play movies through their iPad, with the new Lovefilm Player app for the Apple iPad.

It’s the first time movie rental giant Lovefilm has enabled you to stream full movies over WiFi via an app, from a choice of hundreds.


Lovefilm already has an existing iPad app – Lovefilm UK for iPad, which enabled you to order DVDs that would arrive via snail mail, but this is the first time you’ve been able to watch full movies.

Elsewhere you can watch trailers, rate movies and read other user reviews. You can also access your LoveFilm account – adding, removing and selecting those titles you want to see first.

You can link two device to each account, which means you can link two iPads or an iPad and PlayStation 3

Unfortunately, it doesn’t make use of AirPlay, so you can’t stream content, also your iPad need to be running iOS 4.3

Although the app is free to download, you’ll need a Lovefilm account, or you can sign up for £5.99 a month. How many movies you can watch depends on the package you are on. The £9.99 package includes Unlimited movies, the ‘Light use’ package offers a limited number of hours.
