I get the theory, but not the reality, if that makes any sense. But if, as Marty says, Blockbuster has gone to the trouble to emerge from bankruptcy, then is seems like there is something still there. IPOs always come with debt, but they are sold to the public as if they are just magic money rides that always go up. I think the poor kids that bought into SNAP (and the ones that run it) are finding this out right now. That IPO didn't have the full FB machine backing it the way Zuck did with his, and for all any of us knows it was an acquisition target from the start, and the IPO was essentially ambushed out of the gate with certain people in the know holding large short positions. Not sure those kids really understand how cut throat business can be at this level. Anyway, that was a tangent with a point, if IPOs always come with debt, yet are sold as free money rides to the public, then what are the real possibilities of DISH spinning off a new, super high tech Blockbuster that solves all the major problems that Hollywood is facing right now? Right now the two massive flat screen TVs in my house have access to cable, Amazon Prime, Netflix, and a few other services that I've discarded. I'm using RedBox far less frequently, but still use it once and a while. Once in a Blue Moon I will go to a movie, if the subject matter, reviews, and trailers are compelling enough to get me to the theater. My point here is, the industry is a mess, and there definitely is a big problem to be solved, which could be very lucrative for a big player to tackle. Blockbuster is a great brand name. Does it come back to life? I don't know, but I'm keeping an eye on this.
