"it seems to me that as a consumer and cutting away all the fluff

blockbuster online is no different than netflix online

plus blockbuster has stores

if one lives anywhere near a blockbuster store

might as well use blockbuster "

If you've tried both online, you will see the difference. In my area, Netflix only takes a 1 day turnaround. BBI takes one to 2 days. BBI also promotes their quicker turnaround if you return your online movie to a BBI store. That never happened for me. It seemed to add on to the turnaround time by a couple of days. Maybe it's improved. Netflix has the superior recommendation engine and the search and website are far superior IMO. I tried Total Access when it was unlimited, but won't go near a Blockbuster now. "Blockbuster has stores" Netflix has streaming movies and TV shows. I have no reason to go to a Blockbuster and look through their selection of 2000 movies, wait in line, etc when Netflix provides the better experience.
