DVD Vending Machines: Good Idea or Pointless?


Variety is reporting today that Blockbuster has plans to roll out its own version of the Redbox DVD vending machines that can currently be found in some supermarkets and McDonalds restaurants.

Blockbuster chairman-chief exec Jim Keyes has said that the kiosks represent "one more step in the fulfillment of our mission to transform Blockbuster into a multichannel provider of media entertainment." The kiosks will begin rolling out this Fall.

Do you think the vending machines make things much more convenient? Or in this day and age, when there's Netflix (and Netflix's "watch instantly" feature) and iTunes and On-Demand, do these vending machines serve a purpose?
