Tesco tosses loss-making Blinkbox into TalkTalk's basket

Re: Ultraviolet and Blinkbox

I've bought almost nothing from Blinkbox (or anyone else) for that reason. I bought The Raid because it was little more than a rental price (and it's highly rewatchable), but you're dependant on others with streaming. If Talk Talk bring the shutters down on the service because they can't make it work, what happens to your film library?

Plus, blu-rays are cheaper than buying HD streams, better quality and have a load of extras.

That said, I've enjoyed Blinkbox rentals. Tesco made a service that for me was better than Amazon Instant, and I hope that Talk Talk keep it as good, but they hardly have a good reputation for internet.
