Submission + - LoveFilm Switches to Silverlight only (lovefilm.com)

FyRE666 writes: I've just received an email telling me my LoveFilm streaming service is switching to Silverlight only in the next few weeks. (LoveFilm is the Equivalent of Netflix in the US.) This means no more streaming on Linux, or any device that is not compatible with Silverlight. LoveFilm claims they require the extra security that Silverlight offers, over the current Flash system that works everywhere, oh, and that the movie studios demanded it. It'll be interesting to see how popular this change is, especially since Silverlight is even less stable than Flash on my PCs, and uses more CPU. So it's goodbye to LoveFilm from me!
