Blockbuster Strikes Back!

Blockbuster, as expected, is not taking the Netflix-Walmart union lying down. It announced today that it would offer two free months of unlimited free rentals to Netflix and Walmart customers who switch to Blockbuster's online DVD rental service. The switchers also get a free DVD of their choice and the chance to sign up at the rate they currently pay at Netflix and Walmart! Quite a direct(and IMO, cheap) attack on Netflix. But definitely doesn't tempt me :-)

wow! that is indeed a coincidence...

i'm pretty sure u'll enjoy 'em both but I have a preference for "before sunrise" mainly coz some scenes are very Mani Ratnamish!
