DVD rental and movie streaming service Lovefilm is to be rolled out to Samsung Blu-ray Disc players.

About time too. Samsung added the Amazon-owned firm's video-on-demand service to its internet-connectable tellies in May 2010.

There's already a Lovefilm 'app' that Samsung BD player owners can download if they've connected their machine to their home network. So far, it hasn't actually done anything.

To use the service, you need to be a Lovefilm subscriber paying £6 or more a month. Lovefilm's streaming selection isn't spectacular, but it's growing, gaining a greater proportion of films you might have heard of, or want to see, over the straight-to-video stuff. ®
