DALLAS (AP) - August 18, 2009 Blockbuster offered few details on the plan, which expands on
the company's OnDemand movie downloading service offered through
set-top boxes for TVs.
It did not say when the phone service will be available or how
much it will cost.
Kevin Lewis, Blockbuster's vice president for digital
entertainment, said "thousands" of films will be available.
The company has been scrambling to find new revenue sources as
traffic at movie rental stores wanes and customers move to online
video and order-by-mail services like Netflix.
