When talk talk took over i could no longer log onto blinkbox on my xbox one. I called them and they couldnt find my account. I had over 25 movies bought and paid for on it so im not happy.

Was with Blinkbox for years and very satisfied, now it’s TalkTalk tv and up to recently it worked well....until now. I have several films in my library purchased via Bilinkbox, I recently rented two films but could not watch them downloaded to my iPad because the playback quality was very bad. Talk talk support contacted several days ago.... now on 18th email to resolve with no resolution offered just platitudes that it’s a known issue. Their support page says they can make the faulty rentals available to stream.... only they haven’t. So frustrated but I’ll keep the emails going till they are as sick as I am.

Very bad service, had used Blinkbox for many years with no problems, on having changed over to TalkTalk have experienced lots of problems, the last issue was a film that did not download properly and I was unable to watch, it then disappeared from from Library completely, on contacting the online chat I got absolutely nowhere and kept being told different things,after wasting over two days and three different chats trying to sort this out with my continued request for a refund being completely ignored, I gave up. I will not be using TalkTalk again.

Used them occasionally till they were sold to Talktalk. Made sure they deleted my account details straight away!

I had to award one star but that's more than I wanted to give them!
Blink box became talktalk some time ago which was a relief because I had been concerned that I had wasted my money buying uv titles from tesco. I found out this week that talktalk are now stopping support for their windows laptop app! Which means that if you have a windows laptop you can no longer download your titles to watch offline! They say that if you already have the app that you can continue to use it but we all know that that means they will start sending updates soon that will stop it working at all!
So, as I have specifically brought films through talktalk so that I can download and watch them offline while I am working away from home with no internet access I have literally wasted my money!! To make it worse they are STILL saying on their website that you can download and watch them offline if you get their app! It's totally false advertising, it's more dishonest than misleading! There is one note on one page saying they no longer support the app, all of the rest totally ignore the fact that they've withdrawn it. They even still have the link to click that takes you to the store to download it, obviously the store says that there is no app!
I'm frankly disgusted at such underhand dishonest practices. I brought films 2 weeks ago and they must have known at that point that they had changed the rules but we're happy to take my money under false pretences!
Now, unless they are willing to make all of their content available through a different player like flixster, I've lost all of what I thought were my films!
I have gone to them directly to try to sort this out with them but have had numerous conflicting pieces of advice. One said I'm sorry it's no longer available but you can download your content rhrough a Web browser, untrue, and another said, we don't support it any more you'll have to get an ipad or Mac! Actually in all fairness they said it isn't available anymore you'll have to get a different device so I said are you saying that I've wasted my money unless I buy an ipad or Mac and she said "yes".!
Sorry for the length of this review but this has really upset me. I spend a lot of time watching films, on and offline, because I'm disabled and am alone and imobile quite a lot and I can't afford to buy another load of duplicate films even if there was a place that I could trust who would allow me to download them onto a windows laptop!
Review by Shoops2 years ago
No simultanious viewing supported which is really poor as I legally own my purchased titles but my kids can't watch one of their titles in bedroom if we are already viewing a different title in the living room which really limits the service. Supported hardware is to limited e.g. no PS4 or streaming boxes such as roku or Kindle fire. All in all the service has went backwards since talk talk purchased it. Customer services is non existent and based abroad so all u get is a scripted response followed by closure of query/complaint with no actual help offered.

Please be aware before buying films with Blinkbox. I wanted to settle down to a nice evening after a hard days work.. Tried to download a film, it didn't work so contacted them through the chat option. On trying a number of times to resolve the problem including downloading a different browser it just didn't work. BB wanted me to continue going through different systems on my Mac and to be fare I am not the most Techi person I had just had enough so I asked for my money back... No joy of course apart from a credit to my account for 30 days.. A lot of good as I can't use it! They said they can't fully refund due to company policy.. TOTAL RUBBISH

Great choice of films and delivery is instant. I love the fact I own the movies and can download or stream at anytime. Blinkbox is easy to use and the website is easy to navigate.

My only drawback with this site is that it would be nice to have a Top 10 like Amazon does (maybe include IMDb ratings too?) Otherwise a great site, easy to use.

As above. Could do with more rental titles - several I'd like to see are only available to 'buy'.
