      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

    I think block buster would still thrive on small towns and communities, for example in Oklahoma if you don’t live in the metro area (Oklahoma City) then you don’t get highspeed internet you get satellite internet instead which is slow and runs out of data in a few days so you can’t stream so block buster could thrive in the small places with no internet

    I never had a Blockbuster nearby, I always lived near Hollywood Video stores. Only time I went to a Blockbuster was one two towns away because I REALLY wanted a certain movie HV didn't have. I don't even remember what the movie was.
    Kinda weird really...Lived in two states way across from each other. Both places no Blockbuster, just Hollywood. They also went down in 2010, that was just the death year of video rental I suppose.

    I knew someone who worked at Blockbuster corporate in the early 2000's... they quit shortly after because blockbuster would never implement new ideas. They died because they failed to listen to those who knew better.

    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.

    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).

    Blockbuster
    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.
    Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new.
    Our lives were now worlds apart, separated by time, circumstance, and the unbridgeable chasm of money.

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.

    Speaking of companies that were popular in the '90s and early 2000s, you ought to cover Sears, Toys R Us, Hollywood Home Video, and Circuit City next.
