A Blockbuster Bankruptcy Announcement

leave a comment »

Crap. I hope the Blockbuster near me doesn’t go under. I go there a few times a year to stock up on $4 DVDs when they go on sale.

The once dominant Blockbuster Video filed for bankruptcy Thursday. It’s a sign that the way many Americans are consuming media is rapidly changing. But while that rental chain is struggling, a vending machine company rented out its one billionth movie early in September.

Then again, if the only reason I spend money with this company is when they are liquidating inventory, that might explain why Blockbuster is struggling.

Funny. I remember growing up people bitching about Blockbuster video driving out local video rental businesses. Makes me wonder what’s going to deep-six Netflix and those red DVD rental machines.
