Amazon Fire Stick - £24.99 For LoveFilm By Post Subscribers

68
Found 14th Aug 2017
LoveFilm is closing down on the 31st October. Those who have an active subscription should check their Inbox/Junk for an Email from Amazon which will give the blurb I have put below & include a discount code to knock £15 off a new Alexa enabled Fire Stick.

I'm aware this only affects certain people but some might not check their junk Email & miss this offer.

Thanks.

Official Amazon statement is below:


LOVEFiLM Update
We have very much enjoyed delivering the LOVEFiLM By Post service to our customers. However, over the last few years we’ve seen a decreasing demand for Blu-ray and DVD rental as customers increasingly move to streaming. Due to this, we will be closing the LOVEFiLM By Post service on 31st October 2017.

Until then, you can continue to rent movies and TV shows on Blu-ray and DVD discs as usual. There is no need to take any action. You will not be billed for your LOVEFiLM subscription after 30th September 2017, and you can continue to enjoy the service until it closes on 31st October 2017.

When you have finished watching any discs you have at home, you can simply return them in LOVEFiLM pre-paid envelopes or, if you find yourself short of return envelopes, you can submit your request for extra return envelopes here. Alternatively, you can return the disc in a standard envelope, addressed to:

FREEPOST RRAZ-ZIJS-XESH

LOVEFILM By Post

PO Box 1315

Peterborough

PE2 2PH

If you have lost a disc or have a problem with a disc you have at home, please visit the Report a Problem page to tell us about it.

If you are already a Prime or Prime Video member, you can stream thousands of movies and TV shows, including award winning Amazon Originals, as part of a Prime or Prime Video membership. For more information click here.

If you don't have a Prime Video supported device, or could use an additional one, we are happy to offer LOVEFiLM By Post members a £15 discount on a Fire TV stick to say thank you for being a loyal customer. To redeem your Fire TV stick for the discounted price of £24.99 (current price £39.99), visit amazon.co.uk/firetvstick, add a Fire TV Stick to your basket, and enter your single-use promotional code (which you received via email) during checkout. This offer is valid from now until 11:59pm on 31st October 2017. Terms and conditions apply.

Please contact us with any questions you have about your LOVEFiLM subscription or rental list. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being a valued LOVEFiLM By Post customer.

Lovefilm by Post?!!In the 21st century?!!HONESTLY! :-)



Will probably be 22nd century before the general populace realise that streaming does not match the bitrate quality available from physical media. !!HONESTLY! :-)

Why not? Most people with basic broadband (which may be download-limited), slow internet connections & older folk probably prefer it, plus streaming sound quality won't be as good as Blu-Ray discs in most cases.

Anyone have an alternative other than cinema paradismo ? I had a trial with them a while back and they were appalling (first discs took 10 days !) Might have just been unlucky though.

Streaming just isn't a satisfactory alternative. Firstly 10 quid for as many dvds as you can watch in a month is much better value that 1 streamed film for 4 quid. Secondly you can watch at your leisure, watch half the film and the second half a few days lately if you get interrupted with other stuff - while streaming you have to watch within 48 hours. Thirdly you always good get a good experience with a dvd in terms of picture and sound. Streaming you can get buffering depending on where you live and what your ISP is like and often the sound is much quieter/poorer than a dvd. This is terrible news for a Monday morning !!
I don't know why you're all asking for 'spare' codes when it clearly says: During the Promotional Period Qualifying Customers can use the Promo Code to redeem the Offer against an order of a Fire TV Stick sold by Amazon EU Sarl via amazon.co.uk using the same customer account to which the email was sent and The Offer is non-transferable and may not be resold.

So.. unless you're going to be using the email address the code was sent to.. you're not going to be able to use a 'spare' code!

if anyone has a spare code they aren't using i would like one please.
me too. thanks
Apologies but I do not seem to be able to locare your code. Can you tell us what it is please?

All my favourite non-businesses are closing down: BBC Store, Sony Track ID, LOVEFiLM By Post to name a few. I am the user that time will forget.
can someone PM me a code if they don't need it please
Wonder what they'll do with all the discs - sell them on as used? Or, they wouldn't be allowed to as they are 'rental' copies?
Me too please. Thanks.

They'd find a way to sell them on. When BHS were closing pretty much all of their DVD's for sale were ex-rental. Boomerang etc thrive on the ex-rental market.
Wasn't aware of them closing down but have thought for a while it was only a matter of time with streaming taking over and DVDs / Blurays getting increasingly cheap to buy anyway. Embracing the new Ultra HD 4K format and renting UHD Bluray might have bought them some more time or they could have gone the other way and just made it cheaper but probably would still have shut maybe just a year or so later.

Kind of sad that there isn't a place for physical media rental by post anymore as it did fill a niche. i enjoyed using the service for a good few years back when it first came out (pre amazon ownership) as at that time even the best connections were too slow for good video streaming and there wasn't any real services out there anyway (even pre-youtube).

Sorry to see them go, wasn't a bad service at all, just can't compete with the convenience factor of streaming...
Would love a code if any going spare please.
A spare code for me if possible as well, thank you !

Yeah, to a third-party probably, but can't see Amazon selling them directly to the public.

Most likely, wish I knew someone at LF, I'd love to buy all their spare discs, instant huge film/TV collection and sell/gift all the duplicates....
I'll be sorry to see them go
is there nobody else that rents them
Another pleading request for a spare code here please. Thank you to anyone kind enough to pass one on
'decreasing demand for Blu-ray and DVD rental as customers increasingly move to streaming'

Hmmmm.... To me not as clear-cut as this where Amazon / Lovefilm are concerned. As a long term lovefilm customer it looked to me like Amazon were increasingly withholding rental copies of films in order to further their streaming service. The recent version of Ghost in the Shell was a good example. Not yet available to rent on disc from Lovefilm but available to stream, whereas CinemaParadiso have it available to rent on Blu-Ray.

Due to a paucity of new releases I cancelled earlier this month and went elsewhere. As a bonus my new provider rents out 4K Blu-Rays too.
Any one not using there code ? Would be greatly appreciated . thank you
Would also love a code if there is one spare thank you

So do you use Cinema Paradiso? Will have to switch. But they do have a bunch of film earlier than Lovefilm, which is nice!
Can you get ITV catch up for free with this or is it chargeable?
If by chance some kind person has a code that is spare I would be extremely grateful
Lovefilm by Post?!!

In the 21st century?!!

Yep. Early days but turnaround times etc seem comparable to Lovefilm. Monthly cost will be a bit higher but means i don't need to buy 4K discs unless it's something I really want to own.

Even worse is the lack of info. I try and rent Hidden Fences on Amazon. Capped at 720p for some reason. Rent and old Disney animation and it could be cropped or whatever. Also only providing download for off-line viewing on mobile devices. Used to have that on PS3 until earlier this year. Now it's all variable bit-rate, micro-stutter and buffering. Ugh.

Possibly because the OP indicated: "I have put below & include a discount code to knock £15 off a new Alexa enabled Fire Stick". So people like me, we're under the assumption that it was possible... Obviously, we should have read the T&C in more details. Therefore, this post is only for Lovefilm subscribers... Heat added.
If anyone has a spare code thanks.

Apparently they will be giving them to "charitable causes".
Stil have a Lovefilm subscription (got the email earlier). Only reason I have it is for the old films which they haven't (or wont) digitise. Are there any alternatives?
