London, UK (PRWEB) October 4, 2010
Marking the biggest shake-up in rental since the advent of its online service in 2002, Blockbuster this week unveiled Click & Collect - a great new way to rent. Following successful trials at selected stores in the Midlands, Click & Collect will soon be available at Blockbuster stores across the United Kingdom.
The best and simplest way to guarantee yourself a perfect movie night, on the night of your choice, with Click & Collect registered Blockbuster users can guarantee their evening's entertainment by pre-booking the movies they most want to see, online, in advance and at no extra cost.
Following a speedy and uncomplicated initial setup, all that's required is to select any film at blockbuster.co.uk that displays the 'Click & Collect' button. Click on that, and the follow-up 'Place Reservation' button, and you're all sorted. After receiving a swiftly sent e-mail confirmation that your film has been set aside, all that remains is for you to pop into your local Blockbuster store and collect your goodies before closing time.
Simple to understand and easy to use, there's no better way to guarantee yourself the films you most want to see, on the day you most want to see them. No hassle, no fuss, just a lot of great movies that have never before been so easy to rent.
Click & Collect will also be one of the many great features available in Blockbuster's upcoming iPhone app, and there'll be more on that story soon.
With Blockbuster's new Click & Collect, life no longer has to be like a box of chocolates. Now you'll always know what you're going to get.

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 become the biggest rental company with stores in many countries around the world.
The first Blockbuster store in the UK opened in March 1989 (Walworth Road, London).
Blockbuster's goal is to be the destination of choice for movies, games and home entertainment both in-store and online. 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 and Blu-ray disc 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.
Through its links with the major film studios, Blockbuster also feature exclusive DVD rentals that you cannot rent or buy anywhere else at the time of launch. Past exclusives have included Gran Torino, The Mist, Saw V and the box office smash Taken.
In 2009, Blockbuster.co.uk launched Online Xtra, a selection of new online rental plans that have the distinction of also including Blockbuster store rentals as part of the same Blockbuster rental package. These plans are exclusive to Blockbuster, and combine the range and convenience of online rental with the flexibility of being able to pick up rentals in-store whenever members like. With Online Xtra Blockbuster customers can get the best of both the online and offline worlds.
