I hate to say I agree with ol' Jimmy boy, but I do. Why the hell would you use netflix, when Blockbuster Online has EXACTLY the same pricing AND exchanges? It's just stupid.

People who write these articles clearly have no idea how a business actually works...It's pretty ridiculous "Well Netflix makes twice the money!" because Netflix literally has maybe 1/12th the overhead of Blockbuster. We run two very separate businesses, give Netflix 3 thousand Brick and Mortar stores and tell me how impressive their raw profit is. If Blockbuster removed all stores, and functioned purely on BB Online, Kiosks, and OnDemand, they'd all of a sudden seem much more competitive, because they're not paying tens of thousands of employee's wages.
