Pocket-Lint: Lovefilm is in a better position to take on its main rival Netflix, now that it has added high-definition streaming to its feature set. Lovefilm Instant, the part of the movie-rental service that offers subscribers video-on-demand, now has HD movies and TV series ready for public consumption.
There are caveats, however. HD streaming will be possible only if a customer's broadband connection is 4mbps or higher. And that's only for 720p content - 1080p video will need at least a 12mbps connection.
