Apple TV, Blu-ray, DVD & HD Cable comparison
 
I found this article and thought I'd share it with you guys. It's interesting and good read if you have nothing else to do.

Actually mate I just signed up to lovefilm. For 18.99 a month, you can rent games as well. So I have burnout paradise on its way to mme for the ps3 and Planet Earth Blu-Ray as well. I can't be bothered buying certain games anymore.

I'm with them already, saves me a fortune.

Get all my 360 games from there that i'm not sure of. Only buy and keep the ones with good online play otherwise it's hardly worth it most of the time.

So much better than paying stupid prices for Blockbuster rentals, amazes me how people still use that place.

Those Apple TV units are pretty cheap now btw, 40GB one is 189 and 160GB 289 from play.com. Might aswell buy a PS3 at them prices though.

Took my first step towards the darkside this past weekend... picked up a Sony Bravia 40V3000 LCD panel.

Has to be the first piece of Sony kit i've bought in years.

Arrives Thursday, can't wait.

Don't suppose you've heard anything about those Popcornhour units?

Looks like a useful bit of kit, with MKV support too.
