Re: The death of Blockbuster has been greatly exagerated
The only reason that Blockbuster gets the 28 day head start on Netflix is that Netflix signed agreements to delay rentals by 28 days. In exchange, Netflix would get cheaper DVD purchase prices (cheaper purchase prices = more available and lower costs) and more streaming options. Netflix realizes the latter is where the future lies while Blockbuster was struggling to overcome the Brick and Morter mentality.
Blockbuster's got a lot of work cut out for them if they want to pass Netflix.
