The Bedford Report Provides Equity Research on Blockbuster and Netflix

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 3, 2011) - Once a Netflix monopoly, the DVD streaming and mail delivery industry continues to get more competitive. After a recent price hike from Netflix, competitors have gone on the attack, and are aggressively targeting Netflix customers. The Bedford Report examines the outlook for companies in the Music and Video Stores Industry and provides equity research on Blockbuster, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: BLOAQ) and Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX).

Shares of Netflix have been on the downswing since the company announced new subscription plans for its DVD-by-mail and streaming customers. Under the new plan, customers who seek to subscribe for both the DVD-by-mail and streaming services will have to pay $16.00 per month for unlimited access. Previously, Netflix used to charge $10.00 a month for the bundled offering.

Blockbuster immediately began to target disappointed Netflix customers. Blockbuster, which was purchased by Dish Network in April, has begun an email campaign to lure Netflix customers outraged by that company's price hike.
