      Not buying Netflix is just a big question on why they didnt get bought out and they could have changed things if they started the redbox

      born in 82, consider myself child of 80s and 90s. Blockbuster were your weekend. The feeling when you step into the store was unlike anything today. It had that happiness vive which was hard to explain unless you were there yourself. Good times.

                          Redbox was definitely a huge factor in the demise of blockbuster . They are outside and inside alot of grocery stores so when people go to get groceries they just see the kiosk and just grab a quick movie and when they return it they can get groceries again since it's at the grocery store. It's a matter of convenience for sure that killed blockbuster.

                              I'm pretty sure red box had a bigger influence on closing blockbuster than Netflix

                                Blockbuster could've bought Netflix for 20 million, they didn't, now Netflix is worth 50 billion, biggest mistake by far, you also forgot to mention Redbox, people renting movies for $1 all over the place, and it's efficient, you didn't have to go in a store and talk to people, you just walk up to the machine, pick a movie, and rent it, then bring it back in like 2 days, it's simple and efficient, and was the final nail in the coffin for Blockbuster, also most libraries started stocking movies as well, that didn't have as big of an impact but it sure did affect Blockbuster.

                                    I'm not as fond of blockbuster as everyone else, because of them the mom and pop video stores pretty much all went out of buisness

                                      After I saw this video, I remembered going to Blockbuster a couple times as a kid, and I don't even remember what films I rented. But I do remember that I was happy renting those films.

                                                  You forgot about two things: Redbox and Family Video.
                                                  I worked at Family Video last year as ASM. The reason they're still around is because they own the buildings they're in and rent spaces to (usually) food places so you can get dinner and a movie. The late fees are also just charged as though you rented the item again without any discounts, so they're fair (after 30 days, you get charged the price of the item because we assumed you stole it). Family Video also has VERY little marketing, so they save a lot that way. They sell plenty of unused or outdated stock, and sell miscellaneous things like phone chargers and CBD oil. And they're not squeamish about closing locations. If a location is not bringing in enough profit, they'll close it and sell the building. It has its problems, but the system is pretty streamlined and they try to get employees to really push any sales, promotions, or giveaways that are going on. I see them do particularly well in low income areas where people maybe can't afford streaming services, new wrapped movies, or even internet.

Blockbuster started dropping pretty early because their prices were just too much. I remember my Blockbuster only lasting like a month then closing. I think Redbox and family video is what killed it. Netflix was kinda a joke back in 2006 so I don't see much of an impact.
