Netflix vs Lovefilm
Netflix vs Lovefilm – Quality
A good portion of Netflix's catalogue is available in HD as well as standard-def, plus you get 5.1 Dolby Digital Plus sound. It streams very smoothly, too, thanks to automatic scaling.
There’s no denying that Lovefilm’s exclusive diet of standard-def is disappointing, but its videos look surprisingly decent – similar to DVD, with nice colours and only a little bit of obvious pixelation, albeit without surround sound.
