Add One Media Viewing Option, Subtract Another
Personally, I don't know anyone who still visits Blockbuster video stores, and in my neck of the woods, I haven't even seen one in years. There are 3500 outlets currently, so they must be around somewhere.
The good news, however, is that if you own a new iPhone or an iPod Touch, your media viewing options have increased, as Netflix has finally added the much anticipated Netflix Streaming App, so you can now watch streaming Instant Watch selections on your tiny screens for free. You do, however, have to be a subscriber of Netflix.
And in a related story, for those of you considering shelling out $10 a month for the Hulu Plus subscription, you should know this: Over 88 percent of that content is already available on the free Hulu, and much of the premium content is already available on Netflix Instant. (Source: Slashfilm)
