BLOCKBUSTER

Yep

There goes another one that no one could have seen coming:lol:

Now that IS annoying because there is no exact alternative if you want to rent a blu-ray on a specific day :cry:

Downloads are not sufficiently good quality for my internet speed. (1.2M)

The year 2000 called. They want their high speed broadband back :lol:

I've never used Blockbuster.

Speed holes.

:(

I don't have blu-ray :oops:

And most DVDs these days are cheap enough from the superstores. If there's anything in particular I'm after I'll generally order from Amazon.

Again though, no excuse given their brand status years ago not to have evolved. So they get what's coming.

Change or die, change or die...

All the video hire shops have shut down as well, I wonder what is going on;)

I got it wrong, dammit!

Bad times though, their new movie list is always good to look at for reference.

Unfortunately that is the absolute maximum for my area.

Didn't BB have that scheme were you'd order a DVD online, have it delivered, then send it back at their cost for £5?

Sheer madness if it was.

To be honest, I'm surprised they lasted this long.

It's getting quite depressing now as it means there will be more pound shops than ever before.

I blame Apple

You won't be complaining when they start stocking Ferraris.

I blame the government and the greedy bankers who need to be held to account for this calamity.

I used them all the time, was a very regular customer. In 1997.

Business models that are out of date. LoveFilm / Netflix are more convenient options in my opinion. Pick a DVD / Blu Ray / Game and they send it to your door. Just post it back when done. Netflix gives instant access to TV and Film. They were never in a position to compete really. Can't even remember the last time I stepped inside a BB...

Except a large proportion of the population can't stream/download (and the quality is not even comparable anyway). And the postage thing is a monthly subscription service that isn't even same day.

So hardly an out of date model.

And they wonder why we 'borrow' movies.

You can stream via SKY or Virgin box nowadays, Mark. It's your home entertainment model which is obsolete.
