Well this is fabulous news folks! For a few years now, Universal and LOVEFiLM have had a, I guess you could call it dispute in the past and in 2009, LOVEFiLM pulled all titles from Universal. But it now looks like they’ve hugged and made up as Huff Po are reporting that the two companies have signed an exclusive deal with one another to give access to its releases in the “second pay window”.

LoveFilm said the multi-year digital license agreement will see Universal films available on all of its digital platforms, including Xbox, Playstation and iOS devices.

Films available to watch via the streaming service will include ‘Kick-Ass’, ‘Despicable Me’, ‘American Reunion’, ‘Battleship’ and ‘Senna’.
