The videos found had a picturee of this.
The Evo update last December came with a Blockbuster app - they're being aggressive in their outreach in light of their financial woes -
Blockbuster and the Pushback by Unsecured Creditors - NYTimes.com
It's been on the HD2 for a while - Blockbuster On Demand on HTC HD2
Of course, it was originally exclusive to the Droid X, as memory serves, but when it hit the Evo, I _did_ find an HTC exec interviewed who stated outright that they were working a preferential deal for HTC and Blockbuster.
I couldn't find that article, so here's something related - HTC Sense Likely to Get Integrated Video on Demand
Netflix? Amazon? Blockbuster? Other?
And here I thought blockbuster was out of business. Huh.
If I want to watch a movie ill just take advantage of flash and the Megaupload app
Exactly why Blockbuster is going out of business.
$3.99 and $17.99 to view on a phone? Rip-off much?
Good point. Same price as on demand. But I also wonder how the phone to TV connection thing will work.
From the Megaupload FAQ:
Within the last ten days, one Federal judge awarded a similar site operator a 5 year, all expenses paid, vacation in a Federal penetentiary. Just like Megaupload, he didn't actually host the material, he just allowed members to provide links with all the disclaimers. Another Fed handed a 37 year old woman a $40,000 fine for her illegal movie consumption.
So - their polyanna encouragement is absolute bullcrap, and the MPAA doesn't cheerfully go, "Golly, gee, let's just take that movie down if it won't bother you much. "
Whoa, no - they sue, they involve the Feds, they've been stepping up their game, and they've been winning.
Just a word to the wise.
My legal defense would be, "Hollywood and the music industry have been putting out garbage for as far back as anyone can remember. So my question is does the crime justify the jail time?" And if anyone had downloaded anything Lady Gaga related, I'd ask the judge to consider that as time already served.
Judge is just gonna say it's Da Law.
Better still, I'd think that would make an excellent insanity defense!
Both of our blockbuster stories in our area closed, as did our Hollywood video before that,I turned to Netflix.
Hopefully we will be able to use Netflix...
Movie rentals from the video store is still fairly common, but a video store as easily not have to rent movies online. With all options on the way to see blockbuster films. In the old days, you have to handle everything that has to drive all the way to the store. And once you do, you are faced with the possibility of not finding exactly what you're looking for.
Netflix is better
That being said... when lame people stop electing politicians that cater to the 'rights holders' by giving them unprecedented copyright terms and outlandish settlements from grandmothers... the world will be a slightly better place.
You buy a record.. it's your record and nobody will debate that.
You paid your 'fee' for the content.
Now a cassette tape comes along... you get that same content and paid your 'fee' for said content again.
The CD came along.... process repeated itself.. you paid your 'fee' for that content a third time.
Now you want to put that content that you just paid THREE licenses for on your mp3 player.
That's copyright infringement but they like to call it THEFT because that makes it sound much more sinister.
So the question is... how much is enough?
People do not have ownership over things anymore.
They have 'rights' to it only.
Enjoy your viewing 'rights' - keep in mind you cannot record that show because it's 'stealing'
