Studios are "NOW TALKING" to Blockbuster again


While cinemas keep closed to minimize the spread of COVID-19, some movie companies have decided that movies that should have been in cinema now can instead be seen as streaming. It is the individual film companies that determine the terms on which Blockbuster must make the films available. Therefore, some films will only be available for rent, while others will only be available for purchase, and some films will have a higher price than our normal prices. This is because the films were made available for streaming earlier than originally agreed between producers, film companies, distributors and cinemas. Therefore, there are more rightholders that need to be taken into account, which causes the price to rise. For the same reason, unfortunately, you cannot use clip cards or gift codes on the cinematic premiere films.

Why are the movies so expensive?
Because the film company behind the first cinematic films has decided to take a higher price for the films than usual. Therefore, the retail price of the first films will be equal to the price of approx. 2 cinema tickets.

Do cinematic current films always become more expensive?
Making cinematic current films available as streaming is a new move, and ideally this will find a more normal price tag on upcoming releases, but it's unknown.

Why are movie-only films for rent only and not for purchase?
The film companies decide which products they make available for Blockbuster to offer to the customers, and unfortunately the first cinematic titles are only available for rent. One can hope for upcoming cinematic releases to be purchased, so you have the films permanently in your collection at Blockbuster.

Do all movies from the cinema now come simultaneously on Blockbuster?
Unfortunately no. Due to the Corona virus, this is a special situation, but it is hoped that the film companies will stick to this action when everything is normal again.

How long can I watch the movies?
The movies are for rent, so they are in your collection for 48 hours from the time you first started playing. You can watch the movies as much as you like during the rental period. - Remember that you have 30 days to start your rented movies and that rented movies can also be downloaded on iOS and AndroidOS.
