The New York Times’ usually entertaining David Pogue (love those video clips, David) has a rather bland take on the three US DVD by mail services. Ultimately he ranks Netflix “the service king,” with it’s “highly evolved features.” Blockbuster is deemed “the value king,” with its $3/mo. cheaper price and free in-store rentals. Wal-Mart, the laggard, is not “a winner.” An interesting factoid is that Blockbuster plans to decrease its shipping times and increase its number of shipping points by an astounding “15,000 percent” by mailing out of all of its 4,500 stores. Beat that you puny Internet company.
