LOVEFiLM Player for iPad released, stream films directly to your iPad


I have LoveFilm so this could be quite cool, however the WIFI only streaming is annoying. I get approx 0.8Mbps on my home broadband due to the distance from the base station, however I can 2.7Mbps on my 3G connection.
I really wish people would stop with the WIFI only nonsense!! Gargh!!

Hope this means that LoveFilm will soon come to AppleTV in the UK too - seeing as we can't have Netflix. (Either that or please improve the iTunes rental in the UK?)

Great post. I was checking constantly this blog and I'm impressed! Extremely useful info particularly the last section :) I maintain such info a lot. I used to be looking for this certain info for a very long time. Thanks and best of luck.

I will right away snatch your rss as I can't in finding your email subscription hyperlink or e-newsletter service. Do you've any? Please permit me know so that I may just subscribe. Thanks.
