Despite a bankruptcy filing in 2010 and an acquisition by Dish Network in 2011, Blockbuster has maintained an online movie rental presence. Earlier this year, the company (now a subsidiary of Dish) relaunched its Blockbuster On Demand streaming movie service, available on computers, Android devices, and Samsung Smart TVs.
The relaunch did not include an iOS app, leaving mobile users without a way to access the service's movies on a portable device, but that was remedied today with the release of the Blockbuster On Demand app for the iPad and the iPhone. Using the app, subscribers can watch the full library of on demand Blockbuster titles from their iOS devices.

"Blockbuster still exists! .
Decides to launch iOS app"
There must be studies on this, I can't imagine I'm the only person that feels this way. I just don't understand why they are still trying to get $5 to watch a movie when for whatever reason $3 and I'd be all, awesome let's do this.
