Why pull the bandaid off slowly???? So after all the Feb, March and April closings, they'll be down to 1,000 stores. Might as well close them all now.

Its just funny if the subscribes are rising, and they are gaining profits from the online service, why close so many stores, when said online services allow you to exchange in store? Once all stores close, half if not all the online subscribes will cancel anyways, because of lack of stores, if they are not already doing that now. Such a big company, making so much money, ud think they would be happy with the little money they do get from the stores. Ahh well.thats life

No, it just goes to show people rather rent online than at the stores. Some people use the online just to exchange movies but some don't. Even if all the stores close, Blockbuster online will still be a big hit and will increase on subscribers because they have the newest movies and games. Netflix doesn't compare to Blockbuster when it comes to new movies and games. Redbox is another solution but its just going to turn out like the video store unless its really in a good covenant location. But people are still are going to complain about returning their movies to the Redbox, complain late fees and get lazy. The only differents between Redbox and Blockbuster is when a customer gets mad, they can't yell at an employee, just at the box lol. And talk about the lines at the redbox just to pick out a movie. It might take a customer 20 minutes

Yeah but i don't think they are going to do their own streaming yet. It was a very smart move to buy all the Blockbuster Box and team up with Verizon. Now they can make an app and improve their service a lot.

The newest games are never available, so most people I know do the Gamefly thing. And as for convenient locations for the Redboxes, you can't turn around without walking into one of the damn things around here. LOL
