  1. Awesome info, Netflix was going to destroy Blockbuster one way or the other.

  2. Great chart! It's nice and big unlike a lot of others on these blogs where you can barely read the text.

    I always felt Blockbuster didn't do enough to keep up with the times. They should of lowered their prices. 5 bucks a movie was just too expensive. They also should of did more to compete with RedBox, like make a BLUEbox!
