LOVEFiLM teases pilot episodes for various series

We are all used to the pattern of pilot shows from the traditional US based outlets, or very short run first seasons from UK broadcasters, and following on from Netflix with the series House of Cards, Amazon has produced a number of pilot shows only available via LOVEFiLM in the UK, or Amazon Instant Video in the US.

The initial block of pilots comprises six kids shows, and eight comedy shows. The decision on which shows will get a full series made is down to how the public vote, rather than usual faceless TV executives.

To watch the shows you do not need to have a LOVEFiLM subscription as all 14 shows are available for free in both SD and HD quality. SD streams run at around 1.5 Mbps and the HD at just under 5 Mbps.

Way to spam the forum :x Wheres the 'report' button.

After my experience (dissapointing) of Netflix I'm loathed to sign up with LoveFilm particularly as it's part of the Amazon tax haven.

Yet the article clearly states you do NOT need to have a lovefilm subscription.

Spame gone.

I checked that I was logged out of my Lovefilm account when checking the bit rates.

lol, obviously not clear enough for pre 3 cups of coffee readers. Thanks for drawing my attention. However still refuse to use any Amazon service.

Not possible to watch on a Ps3 unless you have a Lovefilm subscription

What's wrong with Amazon not paying more tax than they have to?

Have to laugh at people who get on the tax bandwagon. Where do you think these companies get the money to pay tax ? From selling things to us, they pay more tax they will simply charge more to cover it, so now who's paying this extra tax?

As Eric Schmidt said - there are UK companies in the US doing the same thing. It's business.
