LOVEFiLM joins the iPad app army

LOVEFiLM brings its movie treats to iPad users

Amazon may have stolen the headlines yesterday with the announcement of three (technically four) new Kindles – including the highly anticipated Kindle Fire – but today its subsidiary LOVEFiLM attempts to grab a piece of the limelight by launching its official app for the iPad for movie streaming on the go.

LOVEFiLM subscribers will be able to instantly watch, pause, fast-forward and rewind streamed content from the comfort of their shiny rectangles, as well as view trailers and add to their DVD rental list.


We're hoping the next step will allow users to actually download a movie straight onto those shiny slates for on-the-move movie action.

LOVEFiLM's iPad app is free to download and if you're already a subscriber of packages of £5.99 or above, you'll be able to use it at no extra cost.
