"Blockbuster claims its new VOD service offers
"thousands of titles from the latest movie releases to classic
favorites." The company's phrasing appears to be a thinly-veiled
jab at Neftlix's VOD service, which currently seems to be limited
to a lot of TV shows, documentaries, and older ("classic") movies.
"Like the Netflix VOD STB, there's a $99 upfront pricetag
associated with the Blockbuster offering. But that's where the
pricing similarity ends.
"While Netflix's box (made by Roku; pictured at right) has a
one-time cost of $99 followed by a minimum monthly subscription to
Netflix ($8.99+ for unlimited downloads), Blockbuster currently is
providing its VOD STB (made by 2Wire) free with an advance rental
of 25 on-demand movies for $99. Thereafter, VOD titles are
available for $1.99 each."
