Stream movies from 50p with Film4OD

Film fans will be delighted to hear that Film4OD has started to stream a wide range of on demand movies which can be hired for as cheap as 50p a go! The new service will let you rent films for a 48 hour period which requires a one off payment ranging from 50p-£3.99.

It is obvious that the price is dependent on the type of film you hire and so old and rarely watched titles will be offered for 50p and the newest and most exciting titles will cost you £3.99. The typical price of a majority of the movies in Film4OD’s database costs £2.49. According to Cnet you’ll need a minimum broadband speed of 2Mbps for the service to work properly. A speed tester is included so you can check you have the right requirements for the job.

Unfortunately Film4OD is not available for mobile devices like the iPhone; however if business picks up it is highly likely that Channel 4 will expand their service to more platforms. The company behind this whole project is FilmFlex; a joint venture between Disney and Sony. The success of channel 4’s Film 4 and 4OD was the key feature as there has always been a market for online rental and streaming, with services such as LoveFilm and Netflix being prime examples.
