So which one – or perhaps two?&nbsp;– should you choose? Read on and we’ll clue you in on what you can get, what you can expect to pay for it and what you can watch it on.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/sam-kieldsen" title="View user profile.">Sam Kieldsen</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Now TV </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Despite being owned and operated by BSkyB, <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/now-tv-box-powered-sky/now-tv-box-hands-review/feature">Now TV</a> is run completely separately from the company’s satellite TV service. Mixing live sport with on-demand movies, it’s pricier than Netflix and LoveFilm but boasts a better selection of films – and gets movies, especially big-name blockbusters, far earlier than its main rivals (a year, in fact).</p> <p>Its sports service is totally unique in the world of streaming, too: for a tenner, you can access all Sky Sports channels for 24 hours. That might not seem like a particularly good deal at first, but it’ll save you plenty of money if you’re only interested in the occasional football match, cricket test or grand prix. One thing worth noting about the on-demand movie service: it’s available free for 30 days, then £8.99 for the three months after, then it rises to £15 per month.</p> <p><strong>Available on:</strong> Windows, Mac, Xbox 360, PS3, Roku, Now TV Box, iOS, Android, LG smart TV</p> <p><strong>Prices:</strong> from £8.99 per month for movies, £9.99 per day for Sky Sports</p> <p><strong>Best for:</strong> Movie addicts and occasional sport fans</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Now TV" alt="Now TV" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/now-tv.jpg?1375777531" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Now TV Box" alt="Now TV Box" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/now-tv-box.jpg?1375777531" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> blinkbox </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Tesco’s <a href="http://www.blinkbox.com/">blinkbox</a> service is pure per-item on-demand – there’s no subscription available, and each film or TV show is purchased or rented separately. blinkbox has an impressive selection of stuff that you won’t find elsewhere – such as Game of Thrones – and gets films at the same time as Sky (and ahead of DVD releases in most cases).</p> <p>You can also purchase TV shows as season box sets. Season 3 of Game of Thrones, for instance, can be bought in its entirety for £17.99, or £23.99 in HD. This means blinkbox works well paired with services like Netflix, because you can “fill in the gaps” by paying just for the content you want – and not a second monthly subscription fee.</p> <p><strong>Available on:</strong> Windows, Mac, Xbox 360, PS3, iOS, Android, Samsung smart TV</p> <p><strong>Prices:</strong> from 99p, no subscription</p> <p><strong>Best for:</strong> Light users who want to watch the odd “new release” film or show</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="blinkbox" alt="blinkbox" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/blinkbox-2.jpg?1375777531" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="blinkbox" alt="blinkbox" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/blinkbox.jpg?1375777531" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Netflix </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="http://movies.netflix.com/WiHome">Netflix</a> is arguably the biggest player in subscription services – the “Hoover” of streaming, as it were. Despite the “flix” part of its name, it’s not a particularly impressive purveyor of movies, especially in comparison to blinkbox and Now TV: it doesn’t get new films until quite late, and its selection of older movies lacks too many classics to impress cineastes.</p> <p>Where Netflix excels is television shows, and as well as a fine collection of old and new programmes from established broadcasters, it also makes its own original series. And for the most part they’re great: House of Cards, Orange Is the New Black and the resurrected Arrested Development are all as good as anything you’d find on the networks. Netflix is also available through a wider selection of hardware than its rivals, meaning you probably have several ways to watch it in your house already.</p> <p><strong>Available on:</strong> Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, Wii U, iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, Apple TV, various smart TVs/Blu-ray players/set-top boxes, Chromecast</p> <p><strong>Price:</strong> £5.99 per month</p> <p><strong>Best for:</strong> TV fans, especially those interested in original shows</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Netflix" alt="Netflix" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/netflix-on-ipad.jpg?1375777531" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Netflix" alt="Netflix" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/netflix-android-tablet.jpg?1375777531" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Lovefilm </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Netflix’s main rival, <a href="http://www.lovefilm.com/c/instant">Lovefilm</a> is veteran of the UK living room, establishing itself through its DVD-by-mail rental service. This continues today, and in fact is available (pretty cheaply) in conjunction with Lovefilm Instant, the on-demand streaming service. That helps make up for Lovefilm Instant’s somewhat lacklustre movie selection (which is nonetheless arguably better than Netflix’s line-up). An extra £2 a month will allow you to rent one disc at a time, an extra £4 two at a time, and for £13.27 you can rent three at a time.</p> <p>Lovefilm offers a broadly different selection of films and TV shows to Netflix, so it may appeal more depending on exactly what content you’re looking for. It doesn’t really deal in original shows yet, although it will be producing them in the near future and does have exclusive UK rights to certain new shows, like Vikings.</p> <p><strong>Available on:</strong> Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, Wii U, iPad, Kindle Fire HD, Apple TV, various smart TVs/Blu-ray players/set-top boxes</p> <p><strong>Price:</strong> From £5.99 per month</p> <p><strong>Best for: </strong>Those who want to combine streaming with physical disc rental</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Lovefilm" alt="Lovefilm" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/lovefilm-instant.jpg?1375777531" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Vikings on Lovefilm" alt="Vikings on Lovefilm" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/vikings.jpg?1375777531" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Wuaki.tv </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="https://uk.wuaki.tv/">Wuaki.tv</a>, Play.com’s new service, combines unlimited subscription-based streaming AND rentals – it claims to be the first in the UK to do so – and if you sign up early enough the latter is available for the low price of £2.99 a month – for life (it’ll revert to the “normal” £5.99 price on 13th September).</p> <p>Available is a mixture of movies and TV shows, with certain content – such as Tom Cruise film and new release Oblivion – only available for rental.
