London, UK (PRWEB) November 4, 2010
This week, Blockbuster.co.uk launched the national roll out of click and collect, a service that none of their competitors can match. Movies can be reserved online to rent and picked up at the local Blockbuster store, no hassle, no fuss and best of all no disappointments. Life's no longer like a box of chocolates - there is no lottery of what will be received next, whatever is reserved will be waiting for collection!
All that's required is to select any film at blockbuster.co.uk that displays the 'Click & Collect' button. Choose the store to collect the movie from, and an email will be sent with a special unique reservation number which should be shown to collect your goodies from the local Blockbuster store before closing time. And that's that!
In these days of budget cuts and price hikes, the attraction of DVD Rental increases by the day. The latest movies can be rented, including exclusive movie rentals at blockbuster.co.uk, for just a few pounds, and the movies can be watched over and over again for the same price. Compared to a visit to the cinema, renting a movie for home entertainment represents a huge cost saving and provides unbeatable value for all the family.
There are over 600 Blockbuster stores in the UK - in all the major cities; and are stocked with all the latest releases, for movies and games. For those who prefer to make a purchase, Blockbuster features a range of special offers and "bundles". Current specials include an LG Blu-ray Player with 3 Free Blu-ray Movies, Call of Duty: Black Ops, The Pacific on DVD and Blu-ray, Gran Turismo 5 and many more.
Unusually, Blockbuster rewards customer loyalty by giving customers who place pre orders lower prices for games, than the price at time of release along with pre order reward vouchers worth £23!
For example, Blockbuster has Gran Turismo 5 for PS3 for just £36.99, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood for Xbox 360 and PS3 for £36.99 and Call of Duty: Black Ops available for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PC and DS from £24.99 when pre ordered. Every pre order gets reward vouchers worth £23!
Customers who preorder other items at Blockbuster get vouchers as well. blockbuster.co.uk's current DVD and Blu-ray boxsets on sale include The Pacific for £29.96 on Blu-ray, £24.96 on DVD; the last season of Kiefer Sutherland series 24 for £29.96 on DVD and Seth McFarlane's controversial but popular show Family Guy for £16.96.
While 3 Free Blu-ray movies are given with every LG BD550 Blu-ray Player purchase. At only £119.99 this is a real bargain. The Blu-ray Player includes playback in 1080 p full HD and "Deep Colour" for vivid images, and many more features. Movies included are: Toy Story 3, Kick-ass and Robin Hood.
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, Shutter Island and the box office smash Taken. Blockbuster is also the only place to enjoy movies from Universal pictures online - as Lovefilm and other online rental operators are unable to rent them.
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.
In 2010, blockbuster.co.uk has continued to evolve and develop to introduce the revolutionary Click & Collect service, which allows customers to reserve in advance, what they would like to watch tonight, for collection in any Blockbuster High Street store. This combined with a great range of brand new Blockbuster own label popcorn, drinks and cinema style snacks, provide entertainment on the cheap, for the whole family. Blockbuster is the destination of choice if you enjoy movies.
