    Actually, Redbox and Netflix killed Blockbuster. They tried to start their own streaming service but it was too little, too late. If you ever followed this whole situation, you can even pinpoint when Blockbuster's death knell rang. Their business model could not support the immense overhead of keeping so many brick and mortar stores open. Especially when Redbox was charging $1 for movies and a basic Netflix subscription was $7.99 a month. You knew it was all over for Blockbuster when Redbox price jumped to $1.50 and Netflix to $10.99.

    I still have full cable and struggle with accepting Fox as a real channel. VHF or UHF, UHF we’re not real channels. I am officially Okd AF
