Blockbuster On Demand launches on Roku

Attention, movie lovers! We’re excited to announce that Blockbuster On Demand is now available on Roku.

The Blockbuster On Demand channel offers rentals for thousands of movie titles, including recent releases and classic favorites.

You can browse by new releases, most popular and genre, or peruse curated collections such as “Shakespeare on Film” and “I Heart New York.” Blockbuster On Demand has also been added to one-stop Roku Search, so you can find the perfect movie faster than ever.

The channel provides a rich movie experience with support for closed captioning, trailers for many titles, a browse filter (HD only, MPAA rating, etc.) and a Watchlist to help you remember movies for later viewing.

So I use Netflix and HuluPlus I can stream tons of shows, & didnt know tv on Hulu has a continue to play button for tv! If I want to treat me to a newer movie I can go to VuDu or Amazon im able to use all my channels of pandora free no adds block this and rare vocal adds same for TuneIn my channels were there in a couple minutes! I hope for a live tv with usa staions one day I know if a dev can do this its guna be huge even the networks a variety of cable channels if chosen well wont need to be hundreds of channels it could e en have 3/4 options! But im not complaining just a wish! Roku XS2 Rocks and the quality of picture and sound on a shh non smart LG 1080p 47″ thinks it a smart tv now!

    Wow. Red Box is really starting to look like total crap now. Even Blockbuster, long since left for dead, has beaten it to Roku.

    All seven subscribers that Blockbuster has left will surely be pleased.

    So why doesn’t it work on Samsung BD-E6500? Why does your website say it does, but it doesn’t? This kind of incompetence is one of the reasons Blockbuster can’t compete!

    Do you have to pay for the movies when you want to rent them, or do you pay monthly?

  • Carolina Lady

    HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE !!!!! The rep was RUDE as well as totally
    CLUELESS as to what I was talking about. I’m deleting BB on Demand as soon
    as I open my Roku. Hope they go bankrupt & are out of business ASAP !!!!

    Wish it worked on my 2100x model…

  • Amanda Connelly

    Blockbuster on demand for roku is stupid and pointless if you’re an amazon prime member. Amazon Movies are cheaper and the selection is larger.

  • Karen L. Bass
