“absolutely shocking service, and very poorly run”

Written on: 28/11/2014 by Rodriguezoc458 (1 review written)

Blinkbox is a joke of a site, the customer service has been appalling,i have tried to watch multiple movies from multiple servers and every time it buffers every 30 seconds, some of these places have been with very fast broadband and everytime we have had to do speed tests and they've all come back saying it was too slow and because we had started the movie already no refund or extra time could be provided! That is the last time i rent a film from them absolutely disgraceful service!! I am… Read Full Review

“Absolutely appalling”

Written on: 26/07/2014 by xhKirby449 (1 review written)

A complete and utter waste of money. Downloaded series 3 of Ashes to Ashes, took over 2 hrs just to watch 1 episode as continually buffering. Stick with Lovefilm or Netflix as never had a problem with neither! Very disappointing Tesco, I won't be wasting my money on Blinkbox again… Read Full Review

“Diabolical Tech Support”

Written on: 08/12/2013

Absolutely diabolical customer support, or should I say absolutely no customer support. For a company that is selling a product i.e. Blinkbox in which the USP is to be able to watch something instantly, this company fails miserably. Despite numerous emails, posts on Facebook, complaints, two days later this issue still is not resolved and they haven't even had the courtesy to reply. Just a blank wall of silence. Blinkbox is okay if it works, but if it doesn't BEWARE - there is no contact… Read Full Review

“Do not buy”

Written on: 01/12/2013

Bought this as a present and downloaded 2 films, only been able to watch total of 10 minutes due to constant buffering! Only purchase if you have plenty of time - a week perhaps- to watch one film. Checked my equipment and network, wish I had read all reviews before purchasing! Please be warned, a load of rubbish. Stick with ITunes, which may be more expensive but at least you get to watch to watch something in full! Buyer beware!!… Read Full Review

“couple of things ”

Written on: 23/10/2013

This is a really good service, great choice of films and excellent range of television series to go through. Couple of downfalls, first being that you can't get it on a smartphone, I've got an HTC one, brilliant picture and sound yet I can't watch my blinkboxstuff when im on the go unless I also take a tablet with me too. And seconds maybe just being a bit picky but it would be nice to maybe have 3 or 4 days of viewing when you rent some of the titles but that's not essential, The smartphone… Read Full Review

“Great, even for slow broadband”

Written on: 30/06/2013 by gillianbc (9 reviews written)

I have slow broadband, but Blinkbox is fine as you can stream or download and watch later. Takes about an hour to download a film, but then runs perfectly - no buffering. I joined with £1 and got an extra £5 credit. I also get 3 movies of any price for £2.50 worth of clubcard vouchers. Good range of films, better than Sky box office. Could offer better search facilities on website e.g. search for all Al Pacino films. You can do that by finding a film that he is in then clicking his… Read Full Review

“Useless due to slow servers”

Written on: 18/03/2013

Two days ago I tried to view the Skyfall movie, but couldn't due to the extremely slow servers of blinkbox. On my Samsung Smart TV, the film stopped about every minute for about 30 seconds due to buffering. I tried also on two laptops but same problem. After downloading on my computer through a blinkbox programm, which took several hours, I could not view the film either. A message from blinkbox said I did not own the rights. My Email complaining has not yet been answered after more than 24… Read Full Review

“Very Slow Servers”

Written on: 10/12/2012 by yourcandy (8 reviews written)

Decided to view The Walking Dead via Blinkbox and bought series one and two. First few series were okay to watch but then started to have constant buffering issues. This has little to do with my connection because Love Film and Sky on Demand worked fine with no buffering. Very disappointed!… Read Full Review
