      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'm wondering if the one in Bend is gonna live on. Like, people will make trips there just to see it, but who knows how long the novelty would last. Eventually the three dudes who work there are gonna run outta money if people stop going there, else they make it a tourist trap with blockbuster branding and dvds + games you can buy.

    My town had a Hollywood Video back in the day. I still remember how it looked inside and exactly where they put the PS2 games (this was how I played Sonic Riders), just walk in and it's on the left, 3 rows from the register. I also remember where they put Power Rangers, still on the left, middle row.

    born in 82, consider myself child of 80s and 90s. Blockbuster were your weekend. The feeling when you step into the store was unlike anything today. It had that happiness vive which was hard to explain unless you were there yourself. Good times.

    Redbox was definitely a huge factor in the demise of blockbuster . They are outside and inside alot of grocery stores so when people go to get groceries they just see the kiosk and just grab a quick movie and when they return it they can get groceries again since it's at the grocery store. It's a matter of convenience for sure that killed blockbuster.

    Blockbuster could've bought Netflix for 20 million, they didn't, now Netflix is worth 50 billion, biggest mistake by far, you also forgot to mention Redbox, people renting movies for $1 all over the place, and it's efficient, you didn't have to go in a store and talk to people, you just walk up to the machine, pick a movie, and rent it, then bring it back in like 2 days, it's simple and efficient, and was the final nail in the coffin for Blockbuster, also most libraries started stocking movies as well, that didn't have as big of an impact but it sure did affect Blockbuster.

    You forgot about two things: Redbox and Family Video. I worked at Family Video last year as ASM. The reason they're still around is because they own the buildings they're in and rent spaces to (usually) food places so you can get dinner and a movie. The late fees are also just charged as though you rented the item again without any discounts, so they're fair (after 30 days, you get charged the price of the item because we assumed you stole it). Family Video also has VERY little marketing, so they save a lot that way. They sell plenty of unused or outdated stock, and sell miscellaneous things like phone chargers and CBD oil. And they're not squeamish about closing locations. If a location is not bringing in enough profit, they'll close it and sell the building. It has its problems, but the system is pretty streamlined and they try to get employees to really push any sales, promotions, or giveaways that are going on. I see them do particularly well in low income areas where people maybe can't afford streaming services, new wrapped movies, or even internet.

    You keep bringing up Netflix but Netflix wasn't really that big either. Blockbuster started dropping pretty early because their prices were just too much. I remember my Blockbuster only lasting like a month then closing. I think Redbox and family video is what killed it. Netflix was kinda a joke back in 2006 so I don't see much of an impact.

    If Blockbuster were to come back it should be as some sort of Cafe/Rental mashup store, before my local video shop shut down I thought what better addition to a place like that would be than a section where you can sit down and chill while your kids look for something to watch back at home, double down on the experience it offered.

    Blockbuster was still profitable in Canada, but when the American Blockbuster went under, the Canadian Blockbuster was left with all of their debt and could no longer survive.
