    Lovefilm on PS3

    I've recently signed upto Lovefilm and have unlimited access for watching films online.

    Thing is I hate watching them on my laptop

    So is there anyway I can watch them on my PS3?

    Can I stream them via my laptop?

    Does your laptop not have an HDMI port that you can attach to your TV?

    Well on Lovefilms website it states: "With a package which includes online viewing, a broadband connection and a LOVEFiLM Ready TV Device, you can watch thousands of films instantly on your TV."

    It states that "Sony's Blu-ray Disc™ Players" (including PS3) are Lovefilm ready tv devices

    so how do I active the PS3 with the lovefilm player?

    I take it its not just a matter of going to the website on the PS3 browser and playing the embedded video?

    Have you tried the browser on the PS3?

    EDIT: Too late ^^

    thats what I'm trying at the min but my PS3 needed an update, and now is sooooo slow

    Just checked. It won't work. Lovefilm i think requires flash 10. However,you can't update the PS3 browser.

    Remember when you could run your own OS before Sony made things better?

    I got this VGA Male To VGA Male Cable to connect my laptop to my TV. QUALITY!! You will also need a 3mm to 3mm jack cable for sound as this cable is only for picture. I watch the films without any problem. Last time I tried ps3 it didn't work. I got the latest update.

    One thing that **** me off with the PS3 is the browser, it's **** and pretty much the same as the Wii one.

    I emailed them about it and got this response:

    Dear ************,

    I apologise for any inconvenience that has been caused to you.

    This service is not available on the playstation 3 due to the flash
    player that comes included in the browser. This was designed to work on
    a PC with browsers which can easily be updated due to the necessity to
    protect certain content which needs to be rights protected.

    Unfortunately unless Sony make a patch or upgrade you would be unable to
    use the streaming service on your Playstation 3.

    I again apologise for any inconvenience that has been caused and should
    you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
