So he wanted to turn Blockbusters into Radio Shacks with rentals basically, but bigger than radio shack, with more lower margin items like electronics?
On top of that, he wants to sell a service that would need it's own handsets and devices?
Hell of a house of cards to align and make work, Blockbuster may end up being a slightly profitable deal at worst, but going down this rabbit hole doesn't seem like a good idea in the slightest.
I expect in the end Blockbuster will just be the name of their standard VOD offering that is identical to everyone elses (sans whichever channels they are having a dispute with at the time). They say in the article the acquisition was so they didn't have to start from scratch. So the goal was to placate current subs until they could get their other plans rolling, and they've gone backwards if anything as stores shuttered.

30% stock increase over the last year! That's undeniable decent. Will have to look up D*'s numbers tomorrow.
