ITV Movieclub DVD Rental

 

.Another Lovefilm clone previously rife with problems--now defunct

ITV Movieclub DVD Rental Review
Visit ITV Movieclub Site

ITV Movieclub fully merged with Lovefilm in late 2006; we keep this review as it was for posterity.

ITV entered the DVD rental market in February 2005, with a unique set of terms which we think are worse than their competitors. Instead of offering unlimited DVDs, they initially set rather low limits on what you can rent during the month, but later switched to an unlimited model with industry standard prices.

Their site itself is fine, powered by the powerful Lovefilm engine, but as usual with these sites, they are not as good as the original, Lovefilm, which remains the best UK DVD rental site in our opinion. In fact, they managed to ruin one of the few unique parts they brought to the site, the header, where the genre names are actually so small they're blurry and pixilated--though this has since been corrected. We also note that they dropped the phone contact number that Lovefilm offers.

Prices: ITV have started offering a free trial of 5 discs within 21 days. You won't be able eligible for another free trial if you've already had one with any Lovefilm "powered-by" site. They charge£9.99 per month for an unlimited 1-disc at-a-time subscription, £12.49 for 2 discs, and £15.99 for a 3-disc package

Lee from Berkshire, August 17, 2005

No problems with ITV Movieclub. Tried the 5 disc free trial without my card being charged. Ultra fast turnaround from selecting films to receiving them, faster in fact then they state! Also received films high on my list first! Impressed!!

Michelle from UK, July 20, 2006

Extremely upset with ITV Movie Club.
Signed up for the free trial and cancelled after the first month. They didn't accept my cancellation as I was 1 day late so I continued for a paid second month. I sent my cancellation in early this time but they have just taken more money from my account telling me they never received my cancellation. I know for a fact they did as I completed the survey and had a return email from them asking me to stay!
They will not refund me so now I have to continue for a third month and I'm p****d off about it because they are really slow to deliver disks anyway.
VERY BAD SERVICE - be warned
