Blockbuster is a prime example of why even a giant who fails to keep with the times is a doomed giant and what we see now is a small withering part of that giant still alive taking a few last breathes.
All they would have had to do once Netflix showed its business model was successful is to simply copy it and since Blockbuster was much larger and had more money at the time was simply offer a slightly lower price service, throw in video games and copy the rest. But instead they ignored it, missed a opportunity until it was too late and even then failed to make their service anymore appealing once they decided to try and copy.
A company that refuses to evolve is a company that not only will die but deserves to.

I use RedBox for blu-rays, actually. I'm not locked into a subscription, and blu-rays still look better than streamed content.
