What happens if BestBuy matches NFLX pricing model?
BestBuy is the largest seller of electronics in the country, if their sales reps start pushing Cinema Now over NFLX, it could take a big chunk out of Netflix's market share? Any thoughts? I'm waiting for Coinstar to offer a competing video streaming service to NFLX, that would be even better with the option to rent physical CD's from the kiosks as well as downloading!
I use Redbox at least once a week for movie rentals and I absolutely love it! It's right around the corner from my house and I find it really cool that the email you the receipt for your rental almost immediately after you check out the DVD and email you confirmation immediately after you return it. A really easy and smooth transaction every time and I can't wait for Redbox to offer video streaming, which will supposedly undercut NFLX subscription fee by up to 50%!
