blockbuster says fu to netflix

Ha!

Late last month, we reported that Netflix shares were down 11.4%, and we had mentioned that Blockbuster might be a force to be reckoned with for the company in the near future.

Now, in a ballsy move by Blockbuster, they've sent out emails to former free trial members offering them ANOTHER free month in an effort to prove themselves as viable Netflix Qwikster Whateverflix competition!

Here's the message from Blockbuster's email, sent to us by a Perezcious reader:

"We'd love for you to try Blockbuster Total Access again and see all the improvements we've made. So for a limited time, you can get discounted rates on our most popular plans!

How have we improved? While Netflix raised prices by 60%, we've given all Total Access subscribers unlimited in-store exchanges. We've also increased our availability of new releases, and now include games as part of your subscription.

Try it for 30 days at no risk to see what you've been missing!"

Right on, Blockbuster! You guys have just gained like 92358736792350 points in our book for this one!!!!

What do U think? Could Blockbuster become the new Netflix???

    dude, you are so uninformed, you're not even mentioning the whole deal here. you have to pay ten bucks a month with blockbuster just to have one disc out but even then you still have to pay additional $ to watch movies online because they don't have online streaming. you make it seem like it's way better than it actually is. i know Netflix is supposed to be the unpopular one, but it's actually still a better deal than Blockbuster. Don't believe me, go ahead and find out for yourself.

    Blockbuster is great for prices & recent movies, sad thing is it always takes a month or more to get a copy. I hve 15 movies in my queue right now, ALL of them say unavailable, long wait or very long wait. Not great service if you ask me.

    I switched to Blockbuster just because I could get both dvds and games right now for what I pay for dvds on Netflix. Sadly, I wait WEEKS to get any disks. They don't have enough copies of everything to supply the demand for them, which sucks. I'd rather pay $10 more to use Gamefly if it means not having to wait a month to get a game that's been out for two years.
