I saw that! But then again it was only a matter of time, I bet they won't be going anywhere any time soon.

Aren't they suppose to be raising $$ to prevent the company from closing it's doors? I think so.

Netflix stock has had a nice spike as result of this.

Wow, I knew that Blockbuster was talking about it. Well, guess they should have got on the boat faster when Netflix started doing it.

It is truly sad when a long time and profitable company has to go under and close its doors.

It is very sad to see our economy falling apart so bad that so many businesses have no choice but to close the doors.

I think Blockbuster will turn things around.  Netflix is just a fad!
