Looking For A Convenient Way To Get The Latest Movies?

DALLAS, Nov. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- As of today, consumers can watch movies on almost 100 consumer electronic and mobile devices, thanks to BLOCKBUSTER On Demand®.  With the addition of six new consumer electronics partners and seven devices this fall, BLOCKBUSTER On Demand consumers have even more options to get instant access to all the newest movies at home and on the go.

With BLOCKBUSTER On Demand, movie lovers get instant access to digital movies on the same day as DVD/Blu-ray.  There are no monthly fees, and the service is available on PCs, laptops and almost 100 different Blu-ray players, smartphones, home theater systems, TVs, DVRs, digital media adapters and portable devices.

According to Bruce Anderson, BLOCKBUSTER On Demand's senior vice president and general manager, the BLOCKBUSTER On Demand service works seamlessly across different devices.  Customers can rent or buy a movie on a smartphone and also watch the same movie on a Blu-ray player.  They can also start watching a movie on a home theater and finish watching it on a connected TV in another room.

"We are passionate about making it easy for people to get the newest releases and all their favorite movies across an increasingly wide variety of devices from the entry-level to high-end," said Anderson. "We've launched with half a dozen new CE partners in recent weeks and continue to expand organically with existing partners. Customers know that Blockbuster always offers the latest greatest movies and our ongoing expansion shows that our partners appreciate the value that BLOCKBUSTER On Demand brings to their devices."
