To attempt a tie the peak and decline of DVD in 2006 to Redbox is ridiculous.
Best Buy had 852 store locations inthe US in 2008.
Pretty sure Best Buy has an impact on the OD market right? With less locations than Redbox
Yet 1000 kiosks are impactless? Your
argument is ridiculous.
Millions of people ate at McDonald's in 2005 in the US. Millions of those customers used Redbox for $1/night. Millions of those people didn't buy the DVD that they rented for $1 from Redbox in 2005.
2005 was the start - now in 2012 WB is so scared they have a 56 day embargo.
