Blockbuster leaving

Got this email this afternoon:





Dear

We have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that, as of 3/31/12, the Blockbuster app will no longer be available on your TiVo DVR. We are updating our technology platform and will not be able to continue supporting your device.

You won't be able to watch movies from Blockbuster On Demand on your device, but you can still watch on any of our other devices or stream via PC or Mac.


Your friends at Blockbuster

Yeah, but it's in the Premiere forum.
What about the people that don't have Premieres who therefore don't bother going into the Premiere forum? Maybe you should have provided a link.

That, unlike the deal with Rhapsody, this time around not just S3 owners but Premiere owners are getting screwed as well?

I heard they may bring back blockbuster later this year.Not quite sure but i think they are removing it because has something to do with the company that provides the streaming services,and once blockbuster gets settled in with the new company they may come back to tivo.sorry i dont have a link but it may of been endgadget,or zatzs not funny websites!
