Just got a good question: outside of the USA, is there any any reasonably-priced service (say, less than three dollars per film) which allows one to watch movies online, in decent resolution? (I'd say DVD quality or above.) And preferably cross-platform.
Torrent is a nightmare to use, and not legal. I can rent digitally from iTunes and Lovefilm and my TV service here in the UK, but the prices are obscene (like five pounds (eight dollars)) for 24 hours rental of one movie.
