Illustration for article titled Blockbuster May Launch Set-Top-Box By the Holidays

Rumors like this have been wrong in the past, but word is that CEO Jim Keyes told investors that Blockbuster will be delivering Movielink downwloads via their own set-top-box by the holidays. No details have been announced, but Blockbuster got burned badly on this one already, so they are going to need to bring something new and exciting to the table to stand any chance of competing with Netflix.

Ohhhh Blockbuster will you never learn. Proprietary set-top-boxes are out. Follow NetFlix's lead and license your downloading service to third party boxes. Hell, you should pay other companies to put your service on their boxes.
