Lovefilm to stream Disney movies in the UK

Europe’s answer to Netflix, Lovefilm, which was recently acquired by Amazon for $312 million, has announced that they’ve struck a new deal with Disney to bring Disney films to its subscription and video on demand streaming service in the UK. The streaming films will be available free of extra charge to Lovefilm subscribers, which currently pay 6 GBP per month.

The deal includes much of Disney’s older movie library, in addition to newer films like TRON: Legacy, Tangled and I Am Number Four. Hopefully this will incite Netflix to get a similar deal signed in the US, as Netflix only streams limited Disney content through its partnership with Starz.
