Amazon to close Lovefilm in Germany

  • Sat, 12 Aug 2017 14:46

Amazon will shut down its DVD and Blu-ray rental service Lovefilm in Germany on October 31, 2017.

“We thank all customers who have used the Lovefilm DVD rental service,” Amazon said in a statement. “In the past years, a growing number of customers have made use of streaming services while the demand for renting DVD and Blu-ray discs has declined at the same time. We will therefore close down the Lovefilm DVD rental service on October 31, 2017.”

The around 50 affected employees will be offered other job positions at Amazon.

Lovefilm was founded in the UK in 2002 and launched its German service in 2006. The company was acquired by Amazon in 2011.
