NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Dish Network ( DISH) plans to shutter more Blockbuster stores than previously expected. The satellite giant, which purchased Blockbuster out of bankruptcy in April 2011, originally said it will leave 1,500 stores open. But Dish Network CEO Joe Clayton told Reuters that some of these won't make it. The remaining outlets will also partially be turned into customer-service points, according to Reuters. -Reported by Jeanine Poggi in New York.
