      Not buying Netflix is just a big question on why they didnt get bought out and they could have changed things if they started the redbox

    Blockbuster let me experience Mass Effect, Oblivion, Assassins Creed and Borderlands back when I couldn't just ask for a new fucking game every couple weeks. I will forever be thankful for Blockbusters influence on my life.

          The enron fiber optics gig would have been insanely ahead of its time. Too ahead, possibly too expensive for the time. Don't think it would have been too good because of the cost and ppl resisting such a jarring change. Its a huge leap from store rental to streaming, in 99 no less.

                So many feels with this video. Blockbuster was my first job. And besides only making 5.15 an hour, it was by far my favorite job of all time. Rest easy my friend, you will always be in our hearts and our memories.

                              Blockbuster? nah family home video my guy. Pretty much Blockbuster but all the DVDs are scratched and all the employees were shit, and the video games weree 10 generations late.

                                    I think the problem is in the late 90s the infrastructure wasn’t there for what Enron wanted, fiber is expensive to run...

                                                Its easier and faster to pirate a movie/game then go out of your house and rent one thats a factor too

                                                  Netflix didn’t kill Blockbuster. The late fees bullshit did the trick

                                                          Considering the current oversaturation of streaming services, platform exclusive content, and the rise in piracy because of that, do you think we could benefit from a revival of the video rental system? The closest thing that really exists is dvd collections in libraries, which are free, but often incomplete (series wise).

                                                              Step 2. Search this keyword: 123moviesdailypro

                                                              When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That's the message he is sending.
                                                              Be careful of love. It'll twist your brain around and leave you thinking up is down and right is wrong.

The only thing we could rely on for movie rentals was Netflix, so, yeah. Hit me hard going back to the U.S. and finding out Blockbuster was dead thanks in part to Netflix lol.
