  1. I was looking forward to this podcast and I must say I enjoyed it. Brought up a lot of great info. I’m an avid movie watcher and buyer so I have a lot of interest in this topic. Think you guys nailed the hammer right on the head about the downfall of Blockbuster. Curious to see what happens with the movie format in the coming years.

  2. I do use, Hulu Plus and Itunes as an replacement for COX Cable, but as movies go. I don’t like things like Red Box and Netficks as I have been using things Blockbuster since about age 5. The things I hate about Red Box is that it’s cost much ($1.50 an day for Blu-ray I pass) and no human to go to for help if needed. Netficks costs to much if your like me and only rent movies about once every 1 or 2 months. So blockbusters $5.50 and week for Blu-ray thing was just right for me.

    1. Um, how is 5.50 from blockbuster more cost effective then a $1 dollar red box rental?? Red Box is definitely the cheapest option out there.

      1. I think what he meant was that the blockbuster thing is you pay 1 price and get unlimited rentals… where as redbox is a dollar per night.
