As an aside,
I went to watch LoveFilm Instant on my Blu-ray player last night.
What a bloody palaver. Bearing in mind I've already set this up once, tied it to my account and so on. Everything's changed.
So I need to register my BD player online with Sony, which I've already done, so it tells me it's registered when it isn't. Instructions on Sony's website tell me where the options are on a TV, which bear no resemblance to the player. Forums suggest I need to ring Sony to get it deregistered. What? No.
Finally sussed that I need a "Sony Entertainment Network" login rather than a "Sony Essentials" login. Then had to import my old account into the new one. Worked out that the registration bit is, intuitively, under "Quoricity" or some such, but had to reboot the player twice to get it to stop throwing an error and give me a code. Once registered, I'd then to go to the website and 'activate premium content' (and no, you can't have my credit card details), then log in to my LF account. Then, finally, the player needs another restart to pick up the registration.
Gods damned thing. I have a LF subscription and a LF-compatible player, why on earth are they so anal about 'authorised devices'? Whole process took me about 40 minutes, I could've torrented the movie (and watched half of it) in the time it took me to get it going.
"Home piracy is killing the movie industry" my eye. Stupid over-convoluted 'protection' is driving people to piracy. It shouldn't be harder to watch something legitimately than illegally, FFS.
