I did a quick search couldn't find much. Feel free to delete/move if necessary.

Anyways, I recently just came to the end of my Netflix trial. I decided I'm gonna carry on with the subscription. Mainly because I don't watch T.V that much nor do I go out and buy DVD's that often. So theres alot of content I want to watch whenever I got time.

I'm also going to be trying Lovefilm out next aswell, the decision to keep both subscriptions going or possibly even switching from one another remains to be seen.

However I was curious to if anyone else makes the most out of these 2? I don't want this to be a Netflix v Lovefilm topic, just wanting to see the statistics of this community to see if whether people use these two and add their own personal thoughts to it.

So do you use Netflix or Lovefilm? Perhaps even a combination of both or quite possibly don't have either and not interested?

None.

With, DVR, On Demand, etc there are so many options of getting content that I don't feel like I need to pay for it.

I have both and use them both. Netflix has movies I want to see that LoveFiLM doesn't and vice versa.

I don't use either. If I were to use one it would be Netflix though. (If it's even available here.)

I used to use Netflix a lot but haven't watched anything in several months. I use my Hulu+ subscription a shit load, though.

I don't have either. I'm old school. I still go to the video store.

I have used Netflix for over a year now, and I love it. The interface on the X-box is nice and streamlined, especially compared to my blu-ray player's interface.

Netflix. We don't have Lovefilm here. I have found myself hitting the Redbox more often though.

Netflix for me. Pretty good selection but the streaming service needs a better setup, and a larger library of movies. Can't beat it though for a whole 8 dollars a month.

I never had either of those and don't plan on getting either. Don't have Lovefilm, and don't have a reason to have Netflix.

I had Netflix for two months but I got rid of it because the selection of movies was poor.

I don't use either of them, though I might fire up that free trial for Netflix soon.

There's many more options available where you can get that content for free. ;)

I use LoveFilm, it has everything I need personally. There were a handful of shows on Netflix that I watched but I'm not that fussed about them. I use the LoveFilm disks for my games and blu-rays and then use the Instant feature on my PC or Xbox 360 to watch my shows and movies. So it's a good service for me at only one price.

I like buying movies on DVD and owning them personally. Maybe because I like to collect, but owning something feels so much better.

Netflix for me since Lovefilm isn't available here.

I have Netflix for streaming, I used to get DVDs from them as well until they jacked up their prices.

I've never heard of Lovefilm, it appears to be EU-only, I'd love to see a good competitor to Netflix here in the US!

I've been using Lovefilm since it launched (or became more prominent maybe) over here not long ago and I love it! I almost exclusively get movies and games (approx. 1 movie and 1 game a week) and have never used it for streaming.

There hasn't been many options for rentals where I live. There are places you can rent movies but not games.

If Netflix launches over here someday I'll try that too :)

Netflix is amazing! We watch so much TV no there. All the seasons of 24 and Lost for starters. 6.99 a month, bargain!

I only use lovefilm at the moment because a very kind lad from the forums (John) Gave me a 2month trial, shame it's nearly finished but shall keep using till I get a fair amount of gamerscore out of it.
It ain't too bad but I hear that it's meant to be quite hard to get of your contract.. But what they don't know is I will tell them to F*** off when I finished with them haha :P

Never used netflix by the way.. anyone want to give me any good info about them??

It's just brilliant. Much better streaming content imo. HD quality if you have the connection speed. Worth every penny! Sign up to the 1 month trial. And to top it off you cancel online so no arsey sales person to speak to!

Go to their site to sign up and see the content. Enjoy. :)

I`ve been watching a lot of anime on Netflix streaming but Netflix streaming should have more movies and shows avalible on the streaming service.

I wouldn't mind Netflix if I could afford it. I used Lovefilm for the games rental service last year and it was atrocious. Out of 8 discs they sent to me, 1 was broken into many pieces, 1 was cracked in 3 places, 3 were scratched so badly they wouldn't work. Not a good ratio really. After several complaints I stopped using them. I want a rental service for games again, so I can up my GS to reach my target but not sure who to use.

I get netflix once every 3-4 months to see if there is any movies that I wouldn't mind watching on it. I like HBO Go more than I like netflix.

I have the Netflix streaming service but hate the new setup on the 360 especially for TV shows. Also had the two disc at a time for a while but I switched that plan over to Blockbuster. It got really annoying to me when Netflix wanted to raise prices and you still had to wait a month to watch new releases.
