Peccadillo Player FAQs

What is the Peccadillo Player?

The Peccadillo Player is a place to watch films online, also known as VoD (Video on Demand), which enables you to stream and download film content. This service is provided through our Video on Demand partner Distrify. Films can be streamed anywhere in the UK and Ireland, and, where possible, they will be available in HD.

Your rental allows you to watch the film one time, but will also expire after 30 days from the day you rent it or after resuming the fifth time. After that,  the license will automatically expire and the film will cease to play.

Our VoD service is only valid for UK and Ireland, any other countries WILL NOT be able to view the films downloaded and no refunds will be issued

What devices does the Peccadillo Player work on?

The Player works on PCs, Macs, tablets and mobile phones, subject to an individual user’s internet connectivity. All films can also be viewed on an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.

How much does it cost to stream a film?

Prices start at £2.49  and the standard streaming price is just £3.49 for most of our new releases.

How do I use a discount code?

Find to the film you would like to watch and click on the ‘Rent Film’ button in the Player window. Fill in your email address. If you have watched a film on Distrify before you will be asked for your password. If this is your first time, you will be asked to fill in a few more details. Then click OK. Another screen appears: click on the blue line that says ‘click here if you have a promo code’. Input the discount code. Finally, fill in your payment details and watch the film!

How do I log in or access the Player?

It’s really very simple. You just register when you first use the Peccadillo Player, put in a few details and your card payment information and then you’re ready to watch films! After you’ve registered, whenever you come back to the Player you can just sign in with your email address and password.

How does streaming work?

If you buy a streaming rental, you can watch the film directly in your web browser via instant streaming. You don’t need any special software or hardware, you just need to be connected to the Internet – high-speed broadband or a high-speed 3G connection are recommended for streaming. The video quality will automatically adjust to match your bandwidth, so to get the maximum resolution video, you should use the fastest connection available to you.

You will be given 30 days to watch the film. If you get interrupted, you can pause the film and watch the rest later – you can resume viewing up to 5 times within the 30 days.

How do I connect my laptop to my TV?

Certain laptops can be connected to your TV, providing you have one of the following connections on your laptop: composite, S-video, VGA, DVI or HDMI port for connecting an external display. You must also have a corresponding port on your TV. You will then need to configure the settings on your laptop. Select “connect an external display”. You may then need to adjust the resolution for the TV’s display, but you should now be able to watch content from your laptop on your TV.
