Bigger, signed up but lightnox doesn't work on my surface rt tablet as it needs Silverlight, and they don't have a windows app. Got to wonder why they don't use flash instead.

More to the point is why Microsoft don't support their own product on their own tablets.

But yeah lack of apps is the killer for light box imo. Even Quickflix have some console support.

True, although silverlight seems to be on the way out. I haven't come across any other services that rely on silverlight, that don't also have an html option.

Looks like it suffers from the same problem, with no app for windows 8, and heaps of complaints about it. I guess they have the easy option of netflix which has a windows app.

I cant understand why none of these local streaming companies dont have a roku or similar channel and sell the devices or give them away with a term contract to their service.

Find lightbox is very jittery  on WiFi. There is no way to decrease the quality from what I can see, so it automatically assesses it from the connection, and I have got hood WiFi connection speeds. Wonder why do they have a manual override like they do with tvnz on demand. Seinfeld also seems to jumps from widescreen to 4:3 format, and missing episodes such as the pilot. It is probably not up to production grade yet.

Netflix is also switching/has switched to newer HTML5 standards
