Make it a movie night with Blockbuster. The company, which was acquired in 2011 by DISH Network, has evolved over the years from a chain of brick-and-mortar VHS rental stores into an entertainment service that provides movies, TV shows, and video games to its customers and plan members.
These days, consumers can pay to view movies on-demand, without a subscription. You can also sign up for Blockbuster’s monthly movies-by-mail plan, which allows for a set number of disc rentals at once, plus convenient exchanges at local Blockbuster stores. Blockbuster also offers some new releases up to four weeks earlier than its competitors do.
