Weirdly enough for Netflix they have today announced that they have acquired exclusive rights to stream The Hunger Games from its March 3rd launch, but I haven’t got to the weird part yet, they will be streaming the film in the UK first, with the US getting the movie later.

Anyone with a Netflix subscription in the UK will be able to stream the film from March 3rd, at which time it will also be available on various television services, none of which will be online, unless they ask Netflix that is.

This is defiantly a low blow for Lovefilm, who were also in the process of trying to secure the rights to stream this film.
