Never tried it but it seems cool. We've watched a lot of Film4 lately though. It's great.

not sure how one 'rents' a online film but prices seem alright, for once.

Yea am not sure how rent a download movie works either, there doing that with itunes and xbl now, but the main problem with all this is the download limits.

You should read the website, though. You don't download anything. You stream it. and download limits only apply to people on really, really poor ISP's.

It always makes me laugh when companies think merely streaming things makes any difference. The data still passes through your computer all the same and therefore it can easily be saved. The only exception is when some kind of DRM is applied but it rarely is.

It is, in this case, though. My WMP needed a DRM update, last time I used it. The shame is Channel 4 haven't gotten their heads around the whole Vista thing, yet. Like the fact it's in existance and people use it.

Yeah, doens't work too well on Vista :(
