Blockbuster have re-launched their online DVD rental web site to make it easier for their customers to find the movies they are looking for.
With around 1 million registered members, satisfying all customer requirements is a constant challenge and one which the Blockbuster online team relish. The improved functionality on the Blockbuster site to slice and dice their vast DVD movie collection by actor, director, chart, year, genre, or theme will keep your evenings filled with great entertainment whatever your taste in movies.
Regular comments, opinions and DVD reviews from a range of featured articles and celebrity interviews help to whet visitors' appetites for renting great movies.
The site looks very different and has been subjected to a full spring clean. Additional information has been included on all new DVD releases in the past 12 weeks, plus all titles planned for release over the next 12 weeks. Ideal if you are planning to take some dvds with you on a Summer holiday trip.
DVDs, Blu-ray, games, consoles and accessories to buy or rent are available in all Blockbuster stores and the site includes a new section where you can find out about the latest movies, games and special offers before visiting your store. You can also find your local store online and print out a membership form in advance of visiting.
To mark the re-launch, Blockbuster is also giving all of their online members, a Rent 1 Get 1 Free voucher that they can use in their local Blockbuster store. That means, that whether you prefer to get your DVD Rentals online or in-store, Blockbuster has all you want to see and more.
We all hate those times when we visit our local supermarket, only to discover that they have moved the bread and milk; with that in mind Blockbuster have also provided a guide to help their customers find their way around the new site. What more could anyone ask for?
Blockbuster Inc. (NYSE: BBI and BBI.B) was founded in Dallas, Texas in 1985 and is a leading global provider of in-home rental, retail movie and game entertainment.
In 20 years, Blockbuster has grown from a single video rental store to nearly 9000 company-operated and franchised stores throughout the United States, its territories and 23 other countries.
The first Blockbuster store in the UK opened in March 1989 (Walworth Road, London) and the UK is now the largest Blockbuster business outside the US, with over 700 stores and about 4.2 million member accounts. Blockbuster.co.uk has around 1 million registered members and about 750,000 newsletter subscribers.
Blockbuster's goal is to be a complete source for movies and games, and the company is continually looking for ways to offer its customers more value, choice and convenience. To this end, in September 2002, Blockbuster UK introduced its online DVD rental service. This service has grown and now allows customers to have access to almost every DVD available in the UK.
Blockbuster.co.uk provides the latest releases and also gives its customers much more choice from classic titles, foreign films, music DVDs, interactive game DVDs, language DVDs and popular TV series.
