Interesting concept. I can't quote company numbers but I know for my store that yes our comps are down but only be half percents compared to the last two years. We haven't changed out business model per say. But expanded it. We offer an online service to combat net flix. Not sure how its worse? I have used both and delivery times were the same. The only better thing between the two was that Blockbuster allowed me to take the mailers back into the store to get another movie while I waited for my next to be mailed to me.

As a way to make some extra dough I work at a video rental chain (the largest here in the US) and just from what I have seen no one really wants to rent Blu-Ray. We got 90% of the new releases on Blu-Ray and yet they prefer dvd even at the same price point. Who wants to buy a blu-ray player at over $200 right now when I can keep buying dvds at a cheaper price. Blu-Ray is beautiful yes but for most pictures I don't need or want to pay an extra 10-20 dollars for it.
