Ordering movies online

I'd like to be able to download or stream movies -- for a subscription fee -- here in Switzerland. This is a service that Netflix and Blockbuster offer in the US, but one cannot use those here. Nor is the UK-based LOVEFiLMS able to provide movies without a UK address ... I'm not sure if the also check IP addresses, but I'm looking for legitimacy here.

I know that iTunes has movies, but the selection looks weak and they charge per movie, rather than on a monthly subscription.

Is anyone aware of a way to do this? There was a very short thread 3 or 4 years ago in which the answer NO was provided, but I thought I would ask. It is hard to believe that sch a thing is not possible here.

What you didn't ask was how much English content was available online, and the answer right now is "not much" and I'd say this is true for most similar services in Switzerland.

I could quietly recommend you look into VPNs to connect to english-language services.
