Blinkbox let the movie- and TV-obsessed alike watch newly released films and current television shows from the comfort of their own homeg and on a variety of supported devices. Now watchers don't have to worry about missing a crucial moment because they have to run to the loo.

Unlike competitor sites, however, Blinkbox have no monthly fees; users only pay for the shows and movies they choose to watch. Prices start as low as 99p - compared to the £7.85 the average person spends when going to the movies, and that's on snacks alone.

Blinkbox Customer Reviews
Love this site for watching those episodes I've missed of my favourite shows like Peep Show, and they also have some US programmes which is cool. Whilst I usually stick to the free section I have from time to time indulged in a rental film and it's fast and easy to watch on my computer. There's no need to wait for a DVD like some of the other services out there. The quality is fine and no complaints about the film stopping or skipping - plus the prices aren't bad. You can buy the whole first series of Gossip Girl for £12.99 which I just did to appease my girlfriend, so not bad if you like that sort of thing.
I find other online streaming services like Lovefilm and Netflix too much of a commitment to subscribe to. I don't want to be paying monthly fees because I'm out of the country a lot on work so I have very inconsistent watching patterns so don't want to pay when I'm not using. The Movie Mondays thing that Blinkbox have means I can watch new releases for under a pound, it's a pretty good deal. It was easy enough to open an account and I was watching a movie within minutes. I've watched about 15 films through Blinkbox now and I've never run into a techinical hitch. I'd fully recommend the service for those not wanting to pay a subscription fee.
