Place your bets on when Blockbuster Video will go out of business


Hollywood Video is having a fire sale of used videos at the 805 stores it plans to close after its parent company, Movie Gallery, filed for bankruptcy a few weeks ago.

This is great news for consumers looking for deals on big name DVDs at more than half off, but not good news for Blockbuster Inc., the remaining bricks-and-mortar DVD store that remains alive but leaves me expecting to write its obituary this year.
