Bender and Chloe, the real Members of the Year

I do not know when you started streaming, but Vudu ( had their own box at the time) was doing PPV in 2004 ( and you could buy digital copies or redeemed digital codes also), itunes before that, Netflix was also renting discs back then and started streaming in 2007.Wasn't streaming...they died long before that
To buy a VHS movie wasn't cheap but DVDs changed that and they scratched a lot..making them crappy rentals. Why rent for 3 o4 bucks when you can buy for 10?
Then cable and satellite VOD also killed it
Steaming is new in regards to decent choices
Then the first Apple TV came out in 2007, Roku in 2008 and Blockbuster just collapsed after that.
So a combination of PPV from Cable/Satellite ( when they had 100 million subscribers),, Streaming and Netflix Disc Rentals did them in.
Dish bought Blockbuster in 2011 out of Bankruptcy, closed in in 2013, streaming had taken over that part of the business.
