According to a new study conducted by the NPD Group, video-on-demand and streaming video from services like Netflix were on the rise during 2011 and 31 percent of all rentals in North America are attributed to digital delivery options. Alternatively, total physical DVD and Blu-ray rentals fell by 11 percent over the year due to the decline in Blockbuster as well as flat Netflix growth. Redbox is the only bright spot in the physical rental market as unit volume increased by 29 percent over 2010, thus increasing Redbox’s share of the rental market to 37 percent.

Money grubbing bastards is what they are, pure and simple.
Just like when CD's came out. Cost them .49 cents to make, but charged more than vinyl.
They are no better than the oil companies. They'll find any excuse in the book to rape your wallet.
I don't go to the movies. I don't buy DVD's anymore.
I use netflix, and even then it isn't that often. Most of the stuff Hollywood comes out with now days is all garbage anyway. how many times can you retell the same story line?
