Why do i need to drive 3 towns over to find my closest blockbuster when there is a redbox at my closest corner, and the next corner, and the next corner after that?

Pay $2.99 for the first night and then after that its .99cents per day isn't bad! Its a lot better than $2.99 for the first night and $2.99 for each additional day.

PLus, if you go back, we had a thread about the terms changing and it being $3/ then a $1 a day, when they took away the grace period. So pretty much, they are going back to their old terms again but changing it a little.

Sorry buddy but the major cable providers are going to start limiting to 4 gb a month...and charge you for Evey gb you use after that. You get a 2 month warning to change habit....Netflix and any other streaming will be cost ineffective for company. The att and Comcast on demand would not be considered part of the bandwidth usage.

That's news to me and I work for the local cable company. Seems like the kinda thing they would mention to the wage slaves.

The key is communicating the new terms to our existing customers.
blockbuster will never get any influx of new customers, ever.

I think that these new terms are a joke. I thing that the bsi section in the middle of the store should be removed all together, but keep the classics. The only time it rents is when its free with the rewards program. When removing the BSI put something more profitable in its place like higher end electronics, televisions, and couple it with a year free service of dish network. Also, increase games for sale and not just pre sales to be more competitive with other retailers.

Thank you for explaining it better. I believe there should be an influx only if you have product!!!
