Samsung, Blockbuster Reach Streaming Deal
Blockbuster and Samsung Electronics Tuesday announced a deal in which store members who own certain Samsung TVs, Blu-ray Disc players and other products can watch Blockbuster content, which will stream through the Blockbuster OnDemand service.
The first TVs with the service will appear this fall.
"This agreement underscores the growing opportunities around digital delivery and the plan to make the Blockbuster brand as available on screens as it has always been on storefronts," Blockbuster CEO Jim Keyes said as part of the announcement. "The Blu-ray players Blockbuster will feature represent the perfect bridge between physical stores and digital delivery by providing streaming digital access to the newest hit movies and high definition Blu-ray product, which is available in our stores and through Blockbuster By Mail."
