Starting today, you can get access to over 2,000 movies for rent thanks to Blockbuster's new Blockbuster OnDemand movie service. For a limited time, customers can pick up the tiny MediaPoint player by 2Wire for free with the purchase of 25 advance rentals for $99. With this player, you'll have access to Blockbuster's digital library, and after your 25 rentals are up, you can rent movies for $1.99 each.
The actual box works with a broadband connection (WiFi and Ethernet compatible), and can play high-def videos via HDMI cables. And even if you aren't a Blockbuster member, you can still use the Blockbuster OnDemand service. MediaPoint players can be purchased online or at select Blockbuster stores. Talk about a neat gift idea, just in time for the holidays!
