And that won't affect the UK Blockbuster, they are seperate companies and the UK one will be better off if the US company dies.

watched it the other day. it was ok. nothing to right home about. and i wouldn't advise buying it if you haven't seen it. unless money is no object of course. but then you wouldn't be using this site, would you?

And that is good for the UK side of things, it makes a profit therefore if sold does not have to give the US its profits anymore. When the UK part is sold it will be kept running due to its profits, up 18% last year and expected to rise again this year.

Great film! Keeps you guessing right up until the end :)

Not sure where you got your trading figures from but they do not mirror information I have been given over the last week.Information I was told that Blockbuster UK is pretty much a wounded animal.They do have profitable stores but they also have far too many unprofitable ones which they need to lose.Problem is who could possibly want to buy them ?.Choices and Global are dead there are no other rental chains left.Hope it's not the case though,would take no pleasure in seeing yet another rental chain go to the wall.

I speak with the voice of experience, Blackbostards are reaping what they have sewn, and yes, the only thing left for them is for someone to put the sick animal out of its misery.

Big Blue had a chance to stand with independents and their fellow chains when the studios started throwing their weight around and demanding arbitrary changes in their trading conditions. The beginning of the end was the Rental Rights Directive (EU) which BB and the chains caved in on very quickly when they saw the opportunity to screw independents to death with 'big corporation' discounts, exclusive rental rights and so on. In both the US and Australia the measures which were introduced were illegal due to them being anti-competitive restrictive practices, but the good old EU said 'hey, go for it... screw small businesses royally.' BB and the other chains took full advantage, and in doing so, between the dirty dealing and the anti competitive practice, and the rise of piracy, independents were all but wiped out.

During that time, Global, and then Choices fell and BB took advantage of paying backhanders to get rental exclusives. It is these exclusives which make BB appear temporarily 'healthier' than their overseas counterparts, but it is just an illusion. The studios have seen no future in rental for the last ten years, and are busy killing it off completely. They'll narrow it down to single exclusive outlets (like BB or LoveFilm) and then abandon exclusives in favour of differential rental/retail operating licenses on the same stock, because they will be able to easily audit those companies and their stock licenses, and once the availability of rental/retail is harmonised again, and rental exclusives are put to death, the remaning chain will die a horrible (hooray) death and the last resort will be the online rental business, which will eventually give way to digital delivery. The studios had several chances to buy several online rental brands running on several different models, and either invested and got stung, or saw that there was no future in rental at all...

We'll be seeing streaming, VOD, and content licensing models before long and no one will even think of walking into a BB store, with BB getting exactly what they deserve.

And no, I don't have sympathy for the staff. They didn't have sympathy for my staff when they ran petty campaigns badmouthing my independent store while they were trying to close us down. Funnily enough, I outlasted them AND Global....

Suck that.

Blockbuster UK does not release trading figures as they are part of the parent company. The company does make sizeable profits in the UK and has no debts. Trust me when I tell you that if the US company goes bust (I don't think for a minute they will, the latest moves are designed to scare their creditors into accepting the US version of a cva) there will be celebrations at Blockbuster UK head office. At the moment all the UK profits go to pay the black hole that is the parent companys property related debts.
Expect Blockbuster UK to be sold before the summer to an investment company who will probably close 100 stores and give the US parent a much needed cash injection.

Whoa.

A lot of hate here for Blockbuster

The staff in my local store are great, and they still do some damn good deals on games, dvds and blu rays
#20
The staff in my local store are great too, but you can see they're not investing in the store any more. With lovefilm (and streaming to follow) they're doomed.

I remember when vhs was the format of choice, and all the rental stores had 6 months exclusivity before the retail version could be bought.
Now on MOST dvd/blu-ray's you have day and day release.
Blockbuster want like £3.95 for a 2 night rental, some places i think it can be as much as £4.50.
Take the new Twilight movie for example, Asda and the like sell it for £8 brand new, so theres not really much difference in price between owning and renting it.
Also 2010 has a whole new era of CHOICE for one off movie viewings, you have hundreds of movies on sky box office and film flex on virgin, love film's all you can eat option with NO late fees and not forgetting the bit torrent options.
You really can see the bb stores instore are lacking people, i honestly dont see mine busy at all anymore.
Roll on the BIG sell off when they go under!!

The thing is though, people have been writing Blockbuster off as long as I can remember. Five years ago I would have said that they had no future but in recent years the performance of Blockbuster UK has improved year by year. They put a wedge in the decline in rental and capitalised on the credit crunch to see good growth in 2009. They have continued to make headway in the pre-owned games arena and despite the trials of Supermarkets I cannot see that changing. The growth of online rental has stalled and Lovefilm is yet to make a profit from it (neither has Blockbuster by the way). All in all I wouldn't write them off and I certainly wouldn't worry about leaving a couple of pounds deposit on a film that is out in two weeks.
BTW, almost anyone who watches TV will have noticed Blockbuster advertising Law Abiding Citizens for rental this weekend. Ads in the middle of Coronation Street, The Bill and the latest Ant and Dec show do not come cheap and thats certainly not an indication of a dying company.
