Blockbuster plans to offer films, TV shows through TiVo
I saw this article float by the news wire. I think Blockbuster might be a little late to the game. But none the less, this is a smart move.
Their business model is some what different than Netflix.
"Blockbuster's fee-based TiVo offering will include new releases
available two to four weeks after they hit video rental stores — ahead
TiVo users will be able to rent 10,000 Blockbuster titles for
$1.99 to $3.99, and buy movies for $14.99 to $19.99 each. The
Blockbuster feature will be available for stand-alone users of the TiVo
Series 2 and 3 units, TiVo HD and TiVo HD XL DVRs."
