Anyway, this may be clue to why Blockbuster stock fell under 20 cents a share and it's being de-listed from the NYSE.

LOL wow!!! And yes, blockbuster is currently trying to avoid going under right now. I know someone who used to manage one of their corporate stores. They treat their employees like trash and all they are concerned about is $$$$$$$.
funny that friend now works for redbox!

Actually, in defense of Blockbuster, they are far from the only media company excluding mobile devices from taking advantage of services intended for the computer. Hulu won't let you view its content on a Flash-enabled phone. I don't think any streaming medai, including YouTube, can be viewed on your TV via HDMI out. Not sure about DLNA but I suspect that will be the same.
