      Not buying Netflix is just a big question on why they didnt get bought out and they could have changed things if they started the redbox

        You forgot about two things: Redbox and Family Video.
        I worked at Family Video last year as ASM. The reason they're still around is because they own the buildings they're in and rent spaces to (usually) food places so you can get dinner and a movie. The late fees are also just charged as though you rented the item again without any discounts, so they're fair (after 30 days, you get charged the price of the item because we assumed you stole it). Family Video also has VERY little marketing, so they save a lot that way. They sell plenty of unused or outdated stock, and sell miscellaneous things like phone chargers and CBD oil. And they're not squeamish about closing locations. If a location is not bringing in enough profit, they'll close it and sell the building. It has its problems, but the system is pretty streamlined and they try to get employees to really push any sales, promotions, or giveaways that are going on. I see them do particularly well in low income areas where people maybe can't afford streaming services, new wrapped movies, or even internet.

          I remember renting Turok (the ps3 360 one) one day and the next day I heard the blockbuster near me was selling all of the movies and games to anyone who wanted them

                            You keep bringing up Netflix but Netflix wasn't really that big either. Blockbuster started dropping pretty early because their prices were just too much. I remember my Blockbuster only lasting like a month then closing. I think Redbox and family video is what killed it. Netflix was kinda a joke back in 2006 so I don't see much of an impact.

                                If Blockbuster were to come back it should be as some sort of Cafe/Rental mashup store, before my local video shop shut down I thought what better addition to a place like that would be than a section where you can sit down and chill while your kids look for something to watch back at home, double down on the experience it offered.

                                            Wait. Netflix is beginning to die now itself. Slowly, but its dying. The last Blockbuster may outlive the company it wanted to compete with, decades later.
