Amazon Buys Lovefilm

We’ve mentioned Lovefilm here before now, in that you can not only rent DVDs and Games from them, but you can also stream the films directly to your PS3.

However, this week Amazon have announced they are buying the film and dvd rental service, having run their own service for a period before closing it and partnering with Lovefilm instead.

This merger should enable Lovefilm to continue to develop and improve their services for their estimated 1.4million customers.

Lovefilm currently operates in the UK, but also parts of Europe, including Germany, Sweden and Denmark.
