Do you think that the EVO will ever get the Blockbuster Video app that streams video to your phone ?
Ill be happy with just one where you can manage your Q
The Droid X was just announced with the Blockbuster app included. Hopefully when the phone is released, Blockbuster will also release the app. If not, someone will need to strip it out so the rest of us can try it.
Blockbuster is seriously hurting financially. Netflix and RedBox have destroyed them and their stock has plummeted in recent years.
I can't imagine Blockbuster wanting to limit their app to one phone or one service provider. We'll be seeing it on the Evo at some point soon.
Blockbuster? Whos that?
That's a good question. I was going to create a thread about this but you beat me to it. All the big screen phones have this app(HD2 and Droid X). Evo is the only one that don't and I never understood that. I sure hope that it will be in the market soon.
They're still around? Thought they be in rubble by now.
Just give us a Netflix ap
I can't understand why blockbuster isn't more popular.u get movies just as fast in the mail, and you get the benefit of 5 free in store rentals when you return a movie in store.plus they get movies a few weeks before redbox and netflix.and I just noticed they are starting thee own kiosks.
The Blockbusters by my house are now just a bunch of busted blocks. The one right around the corner from me closed down in the past week! The business model changed and they reacted too slowly. "Rent Outside the Box". Ha. Stupid marketing on BB's part.
Blockbuster filing for bankruptcy next month? Probably. -- Engadget
I don't understand how that's stupid? They no longer have as many physical storefronts, so it's a catchy slogan for people to use the postal service or kiosk service.
you what would be a good FAIL photo? photoshop a redbox machine in front of a closed down blockbuster store...
I'd help you out, but I haven't finished reading my Photoshop for Dummies book yet.
You can get it for the evo. I have it, you just have to do some searching. I think I got it from xda I think. I haven't used it, but I did install it. I closed my blockbuster account down and now with netflix, so I got it at the time just to show some friends.
Post the pictures up here and I'll do it in Gimp...
I hate finding the pictures to use....
i added a whole bunch to my list today. they where slow to react, but i think they will stick around after they file for bankruptcy, cause you get a lot more from them for the same price.
excerpt from the street.com
...But it may not end up making that payment if reports of a prepackaged bankruptcy prove true. According to the Los Angeles Times, Blockbuster met with six major movie studios discussing their intention to enter a preplanned bankruptcy. It would be essential for Blockbuster to retain the support of movie studios amid a bankruptcy filing, in order to ensure receiving new releases and continue business uninterrupted.
A preplanned bankruptcy, which the Los Angeles Times said would last about five months, would allow Blockbuster to escape leases at some of its underperforming stores. This could mean the closure of another 500 to 800 locations
