For cryin' out loud, do some research, will ya? You should have heard this plenty of times by now...Blockbuster partner, NCR, was already in Publix. In fact it's the only one of NCR's 4 major accounts to stick with them rather than leave in favor of Redbox.Interesting that the only major chain NOT to go to coinstar/redbox is also one of the only major chains not to install Coinstar's coin machines.Maybe Publix just holding a grudge for some perceived slight by Coinstar way back in the day?
Maybe they get cheap cash registers from NCR as long as they use their dvd rental machines?
You may be right. NCR may be giving incentives, or package deals to their customers. However, this news should not be the only thing driving this stock down! During T-Giving, I saw Red Box in every (4) airpot I was in.
