Agreed, ive been saying this for YEARS, id love to use my Lovefilm Streaming option, but they do not subtitle a SINGLE STREAM . Whats worse is they also dont say if a DVD you rent from LoveFilm has subs, so you just have to kinda hope.

Well, if a service doesn't work, then the best thing we can do is vote with our dollars. All my computers except my Mac mini have optical drives, so I intend to make full use of them. In addition to playing directly from the discs, I will continue to rip. That way I know I will have a working digital copy.
And the heck of this is that all the rights holders have to do (and they do have to do it if they want to continue to eat) is make content available to us in formats that will always play on the devices we choose, where we choose to use them. Once they (finally) get that done, then we can talk price. Until then, rights holders can starve for all I care. The people who actually did the work have already gotten paid.
Distributors can defer to us or disappear.
