    • I doubt NFLX will follow. The latest price cut from Blockbuster just another sign of desperation to get something going, which I can understand if it cannot sell it's products on brand, it will have to rely on price. I've tried the both online subscriptions when Blockbuster first started online subscription, but I liked NFLX better and have stuck with it ever since.

      Advice for NFLX: If customers will defect for $1.00 because of perceived value of NFLX vs Blockbuster is less than that, they are idiots and should let Blockbuster have them. Given the size of the current customer base, it really won't matter that much.

      Advice for Blockbuster: Stop trying to 'cut your nose to spite your face' because pretty soon there won't be much of the face left to cut. The only way to turn around this thing is by beating NFLX in its on game of being more inventive and offer movie fans real value. BTW, the 3 extra stored DVD didn't matter much, nor will this latest tactic, which will only hurt more in the coming quarters results.

    • Never own a price in a massive price war. Nflx to 10 in 3 months..

      • No need to curse Blockbuster. They've cursed themselves with their non-profitable price structure, crazy quilt overspending on marketing and advertising rather than on products and services, and one billion dollar mountain of debt which they will never crawl out from under. Blockbuster has admitted themselves that this latest ploy will not turn a profit for them any time soon; in fact, in the short run, it will drive them even deeper into debt. Meanwhile, Netflix will continue to reap a healthy profit each and every quarter and add more cash to the ever-increasing warchest. There's a reason BBI stock is so cheap.
