Lovefilm shuttering game rental option in UK on August 8th

Streaming and DVD rental service Lovefilm is putting a stop to video game rentals in the United Kingdom. The Amazon-owned service has already removed the option for new subscriptions, with Eurogamer reporting that existing subscribers will be able to continue receiving game discs until its full closure on August 8th. Lovefilm will still be providing DVD and Blu-ray rentals by post for the foreseeable future.

Redbox allows rooted devices to run Redbox Instant Android app

Redbox has updated its Redbox Instant app, changing the way it handles rooted Android devices. The update, spotted by Engadget, now allows for rooted devices to play video through the service, something which many of the more popular video streaming apps actively bans. The change is accompanied by a number of bug fixes and performance updates.
