Blockbuster Tries New Kiosk Pricing
Rent one of them from one of Blockbuster's NCR-operated kiosks and you'll pay $3 for the first night and $1 for each additional night. If you're quick, that basically means $3, the same reduced rate Blockbuster has recently begun charging for three-day rentals of six-week-old "new" titles in its brick-and-mortar stores. But it's also a couple of bucks more than consumers are used to paying for kiosk rentals.
Why the premium pricing? NCR/Blockbuster has just signed an agreement with Fox and Universal that withholds titles from rental until 28 days after they've gone on sale. But these two titles are available for kiosk rental simultaneously with the sale date. For now there is no similar withholding deal between NCR/Blockbuster and Warner, so that studio's titles are not subject to the 28-day delay.
