After Carl gets the # 1 Movie rental chain of all time (Blockbuster) ready to domination once again Blockbuster can easily force Red Box to go belly up just by dropping the prices of their movies in their Blockbuster Blue Boxes. Also if the stores were to drop their prices enough Blockbuster could take over the market share back from NetFlix and totally control the Red Box business model!

Carl... you got nothing to lose! Let's go out "guns a blazing" and the entire company will work with you to make NetFlix suffer and put Red Box under!

I'm ready!

Then everyone (except Dan's mom and pop stores) will make tonight...... a Blockbuster Night!

Then, the company will make even less revenue than it is now and its losses will increase. That's why lowering prices will not work for Blockbuster. It's time to face the facts: liquidation is the only feasible option.

Blockbuster could drop prices for the short term and that would pull customers away from their competition. They could drop prices for 3 to 6 months and get customers back into the stores. Blockbuster really doesn't spend a ton in payroll so they would just have to control the other expenses and ensure that only the best items were made available for them to sell in their stores.

Prices can only be lowered if it makes a workable price point. Rememebr if you lower prices you have to raise the amount of customers and rentals to make up for it. They would also have an increasingly lower amount of stock in a system that is already weak of inventory. If Blockbuster cut the fat with executive pay and high upper management salary they could have been better off. Last 10 years they would have saved the 290million to bid on their own store now. The other problem is that franchise locations should sue Blockbuster for even offering boxes or internet streaming or delivery because it cuts them out of the deal. Blockbuster has killed their own franchises. I for one would sue for direct competition in a market that I had exclusive rights under the franchise aggreement.
you got that right

bb, really has no chance....... there is always a bb closing everyday on this topix site, and many other sites.. including, fox news, bloom report ,lots of local sites, blockbustersucks.com , video buyers group , vsda , home entertainment, new yorker,

it all over the place.... there closing...
When you can buy a product for less the $15.00, then there is no rental market for over .075 cents per day...
the video rental in the brick locations in long over due to close... and since BB did not close all locations years ago... BB HAS A BIG 290MILLION ( or really over 1 billion ) LATE FEE them of there own...

tell your friends to support local owned business in your area when ever there is a choice..

its the AMERICA way..

Blockbuster.com pricing and terms kept changing which really ticked off a lot of customers. Blockbuster's management couldn't come to a feasible conclusion or determine what was profitable. Indecisiveness on management's part leads to insecurity of the entire company and puts the company's future in the crapper.

They have to drop the prices to a cheap DAILY rate just like Red Box.

This will increase daily, weekly, and monthly visits!

When you have increased visits you will HAVE increase potential to sell other things to customers which can increase the stores profitability!

Stores have to hold their teams accountable for sales!

They used to have that "Summer Pass"..... remember that? For $10.00 for could rent as many movies ONE at a time for a week? Then they had the "Summer Game or movie Pass" where you could rent as many games or movies ONE at a time for $15.00. That program was very successful!

Not gonna happen with Blockbuster. Any further decreases in revenue will only increase their already increasing losses.
