Plenty has been written about Blockbuster v. Netflix so no need to hash through that. However, seeing these in-store Blockbuster kiosks in mini-marts makes me think less about convenience and serves more of a reminder of how far they have fallen. From thousands of large retail stores, to “we can be like Redbox” vending machines. I’m waiting for all the tax-service sign wavers to start holding up Blockbuster signs.
It’s like the old star athlete that refuses to retire. Just sad.
