Lovefilm to stream movies to PS3 in Germany

DVD and online streaming service Lovefilm is to start streaming movies and TV series via the Playstation3 in Germany after extending its deal with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.

The move is the first time that Playstation3 customers outside of the UK will be able to stream titles including Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and Batman Begins.

Lovefilm announced at the end of last week that it had struck a deal with Disney to deliver Disney titles via transactional and subscription video-on-demand in Germany.
”The extension of our partnership with Sony beyond the UK is a significant move in expanding our digital home entertainment service internationally. PS3 already has a strong customer base in Germany who will now be able to benefit from our vast collection of titles that can be streamed directly to their living rooms,” said Simon Calver, chief executive of Lovefilm.
