Online video library Lovefilm has expanded its video-on-demand service (VOD) in Germany by adding titles from film distributor Prokino.

Customers can access art house and crossover movies via the Internet and watch them on their computers or TV sets. From August, 40 titles from the Prokino portfolio will be available, including Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain, Super Size Me and Bowling for Columbine. Lovefilm has so far been offering Prokino movies on DVD and Blu-ray disc, but not on its VOD service.

The subsidiary of online retailer Amazon has more than 45,000 titles in its stock which can be rented physically on DVD or Blu-ray or directly accessed online via VOD.
