Lovefilm updates Wii application with better search and watchlist features

When sitting down to watch a lovely film on your Wii, you can now take advantage of Lovefilm's updated streaming app for the console. Users will notice improved search functionality, a more Wii-friendly user interface and, for the first time, watch lists. You'll also be able to pick up where you left off on other devices thanks to the new homepage which shows previously watched titles. Yup, this is what you're getting instead of game rentals.

LOVEFiLM, an Amazon company, has today announced the launch of its new and improved LOVEFiLM Instant streaming service application on Nintendo's Wii home console, enhancing the viewing experience for more than eight million Wii users in the UK.

The arrival of the next generation app on the family orientated, motion-based console is the latest step in LOVEFiLM's roll out of the upgraded app, and brings a variety of exciting new features to Wii users - including an improved search function and recommendation engine, optimised user interface, and the addition of the popular Watchlist feature. members using the Wii to stream the latest films and TV series will also find revisiting content easier than ever before, with a homepage display that shows content currently being viewed and the last location reached in that video - making it easier to resume viewing from the same place on any LOVEFiLM device.

The enhanced LOVEFiLM Instant streaming application is available to download for the Nintendo Wii from the Wii Shop Channel from today, and will soon be made available on all LOVEFiLM-enabled devices.
