The Blockbuster Express kiosks haven’t really been released yet and they already have seen a price drop.
When the kiosks were announced, Blockbuster had said they planned to charge $1.99 for the first night, and $0.99 for additional nights. In an recent announcement, they have now said they will charge $1 per day. This obviously puts them in line with Redbox, e-Play, and others.
They will still charge $1.99 for the first night of a blu-ray rental, however, something I also think we will see Redbox adopt in the coming months.
So, it looks like Blockbuster is now getting serious in its competition with Redbox. Grab some popcorn, because the Entertainment Kiosk Wars are just getting started!
