Stocks in this article: DISH

Blockbuster, a subsidiary of DISH Network Corporation (NASDAQ: DISH), is adding a new Cine Latino movie section in more than 200 stores. The new section will offer classic and new Latino movie titles for viewers of all ages, in a standalone area adorned in celebration of Latino film culture.

Dedicated to celebrating the Latino genre of film, Cine Latino features a wide variety of popular titles, including: “Los Inadaptados,” “El Espiritu,” “2033: Apocalipsis Futuro,” “Pastorela,” “A Paradise Under the Stars,” “Manuela and Manuel” and “Bitter Sugar,” among others. Fans of Eva Longoria will also have the chance to commemorate their shopping experience with a free mini poster with the rental of the DVD “For Greater Glory,” at select stores while supplies last.

DISH and Blockbuster have identified the importance of serving the Hispanic community. DISH Latino, a TV package from DISH, enables customers to watch their favorite television programs in Spanish.

“Blockbuster customers have diverse interests and backgrounds. We value our Hispanic customers and wanted to invest in an area of our stores that not only celebrates the Latino genre of film but also offers a unique shopping experience,” said Blockbuster President Michael Kelly. “National Hispanic Heritage Month reminds us to celebrate Hispanic culture, and we’re celebrating with the debut of our new Latino movie section that showcases some of the best new releases and classics in Latino film.”

At select Blockbuster stores, consumers will have the opportunity to enter the Block Party Sweepstakes for the chance to win a block party with 50 family members and friends, plus a cash prize. Blockbuster customers can enter the sweepstakes now through Oct. 15 in their nearest participating Blockbuster store. In addition to the sweepstakes, Blockbuster will also host a series of fun block parties at select stores in Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago, Dallas and San Antonio to celebrate the launch of the Cine Latino in-store section.
