Or not. Delusional Dish should've done its homework and noticed Blockbuster's decreasing revenue, negative cash flow and poor relationships with landlords and movie studios. Soon, Delusional Dish will see that Blockbuster was a waste and likely liquidate Blockbuster so that the cash can be made back.

Getting back on topic, Paramount is claiming that Blockbuster owes $2.3 million and Time Warner is threatening to not renew its contract with Blockbuster later this month. How is Delusional Dish going to handle this?

Dish, will kiss and make up. They will throw the studios some cash to make things right.

If I was the studios, based on what the fact BB got away without paying them, I would say screw you and not renew just as a lesson. But we all know that will not happen. The studios don't have the balls to walk away from BB/Dish or any other purchaser.

It would be in Delusional Dish's best interests to not pay/renew with the studios, shut down Blockbuster Online and Express kiosks and transform the remaining stores Blockbuster has into Dish Network stores. THAT would make it a great investment.

Not making sense! There's going to be a lot of rumors passed around but remember BLOCKBUSTER is Bankrupt and only liable for pennies on the dollar of debt. Dish will not be responsible for past debts owed! This is in the court documents. When Dish bought Blockbuster THEY DID NOT BUY IT'S DEBT. BLOCKBUSTER'S DEBT IS PRETTY MUCH CLEANED UP......

How do you explain the money owed to senior bondholders? It was in The Wall Street Journal this morning that they'll only get about 25 cents on the dollar. So, Blockbuster still owes them on top of the $227 million Blockbuster owed to creditors which may not even be enough to satisfy them and finally over $93 million going to bankruptcy expenses. Blockbuster simply doesn't have the income to offset these expenses and requires liquidation because of it. Delusional Dish is just letting the zombie walk around a little longer.
