What's left to like about Blockbuster?

First Blockbuster bought out the company that owned my favorite local video store in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Then they stopped renting adult videos.

Then they closed their local store.

Then they quietly slowed the processing of their renting of discs by mail to the point where "two at a time" results in my receipt of no more than 10 discs per month. And approximately 1 in 10 of the disks received are the wrong title, duplicates to discs already sent and still in my possession, or damaged.

And then they removed support from their On Demand streaming video service for all home entertainment devices, except for specific devices manufactured by Samsung. The use of my TiVo Premiere, LG Blu-ray player, Panasonic Blu-ray player, to access those services was terminated in an instant, and without any advanced warning or notification.

Good-bye, and good riddance to Blockbuster.
