Blockbuster Feeling Blue


Blockbuster's parent company, Dish Network, announced it will shutter all of its approximately 300 Blockbuster domestic retail outlets and end its DVD-by-mail rental service by early 2014.

In its press release, Dish states it will now "focus on delivering the Blockbuster @Home service to DISH customers, and on its transactional streaming service for the general market, Blockbuster On Demand," which is its online rental arm.
