We’re big big fans of all things LOVEFiLM and are always very impressed with the way that they push their idea to the next level. Today they’ve announced that their online service is available on the Apple iPad which is fantastic news for people who don’t go anywhere without their panel device. The new App will allow you to pause, fast-forward streaming movies and add to your LOVEFiLM list on the go. I guess the next step will be for users to be able to download movies to the device so you can watch them on the move but one step at a time.

I’ve placed the full press release below. Have a read and get downloading!
