Blockbuster had what seems like a blockbuster announcement this past week at Facebook’s f8 Developer Conference in San Francisco. According to their press release, Blockbuster “will soon launch an app that gives people the ability to rent and watch movies through Facebook Platform.” In the platform, users will be able to navigate through Blockbuster’s library of movies, and have the ability to rent and watch movies through an embedded player.
Sounds pretty good, and hopefully it’s a seamless experience. Blockbuster is not dead after all. Let’s see if Netflix will have a counter for this. As far as availability for the Blockbuster application, it’s simply “coming soon.” For more information, visit www.blockbuster.com.
