      Does make you wonder, we just lost HMV the other day and now another big company. I use these for my DVD rentals so I was quite shocked to see this when I saw it earlier on. Read that they are still accepting gift vouchers whilst they are looking for a buyer so that is good for anyone that has one still from Christmas.

      Most people don't want to go out and rent. They want the convenience of being able to get a movie through Netflix, Hulu etc.

      That is true, could be one of the reasons why they went. I also use these for my game rentals aswell but not looking good for the store near me at the moment since they went into admin.
