Again, I'm all up for funding at least the next month's worth of the site's operation. It has been a few weeks since any BB-related news hit the internet, so I have a feeling that we'll be hearing...

I could throw around $15 from time to time as well. If you think about it, how many more months' worth of service would we have to donate before the remaining BB stores were closed? There are only...

LOL, nice pun. I think that, in this case, Ergen is simply trying to find an excuse to explain away the purchase (and subsequent failure) of Blockbuster. I will miss renting games from the local BB,...

I have to wonder... why does Dish keep closing the stores in such a segmented manner? I.e., 300 here, 250 there, etc. Why don't they just close them all up at once since they know full-well that all...

I think the last stores will close sometime between Oct. - Dec. 2013. A few may last into 2014. There might be 80 - 100 that Dish keeps open as "premier locations," using the excuse that they'd like...
