In recent news that is sure to concern people who acquire movies through legal means (and what minute percentage of that don’t use Redbox or Netflix), Blockbuster Express (or Bluebox, as I like to call it) has just followed suit with increasing their pricing structure. It’s going to be $3 for “Hot Movies” made available within the first 28 days of its release, 2$ for “Recent Releases” that have been available for more than 28 days, and then 1$ for all other releases available for more than 90 days… including, presumably, 28 Days Later.
There’s also Blu-rays to consider, which cost an extra dollar to rent, and each night is an additional dollar… So, what was their pricing structure like before? I really have no idea, but people who use “Bluebox” surely know, so I’ll let them designate their emotional outrage over this shocking news.[Via Engadget]
