With Blu-ray Blockbuster is $8.99 per month, Netflix is $10.99 per month. They carry all those that were asked about in that post above. Hard to say what will happen to BB, in the meantime why not use them while they are still around? No streaming, but they do have OnDemand to buy/rent/download just like Apple, Amazon, etc. In my experience, my waits have consistently been shorter with BB than they have been with Netflix. I'll put a title in both queues, and far more often than not, BB is the one preparing to ship it out first. For $3 more per month($11.99) you can also get 5 in-store exchanges per month, typically it ends up being more though, remember, Netflix charges $10.99 per month just to get Blu-ray.
To each his/her own, Blockbuster has been working great for me, and since there's no contract, if they fold, I'll just use Netflix more. Currently I use Netflix for foreign film streaming, in fact, I'm going to drop the mail disc portion very soon. I have yet to see the streaming only option show up as a choice yet though, I thought they started that just a few days ago?
