Blockbuster L.L.C. Company Profile
With video stores going the way of the dinosaurs (and record stores), movie rental chain Blockbuster has seen its business take a Hollywood-sized hit. With a library of more than 125,000 movie and video game titles, Blockbuster has struggled to transform its store-based distribution system to a multi-channel content delivery model. The company's customers can either download movies to their home or mobile devices, order them by mail, or visit one of the remaining 300 Blockbuster stores. Amid rapid technological change and competition from Netflix and Redbox, Blockbuster filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and was sold to satellite TV service provider DISH Network.
