Goodbye Blockbuster Total Access

Since I haven’t mentioned Blockbuster in awhile, I felt that I should update on that – we switched to Netflix.


  1. Our local Blockbuster on Live Oak (Arcadia, CA) got closed down. The manager said it was a corporate decision. That one is 0.4 miles away from home. Now, the closest one is 2 miles away. Boo.
  2. When returning the Blockbuster DVD mailer for a free one in-store movie rental, I couldn’t think of movies to rent on-the-fly.
  3. I like the UI of Netflix vs. Blockbuster Online.
  4. I heard customer service is better than Blockbuster.

If I really need a new release sporadically, there’s a Redbox closeby. (4.7 miles from home, but whatever.)
