Dish Network on Friday announced the upcoming availability of Blockbuster Movie Pass, an unlimited video streaming service akin to Netflix’s “Watch Instantly.” Beginning October 1st, Dish subscribers will have unlimited access to a small library of digital content that they can stream to a PC or to a TV using a standard Dish set-top box. While Netflix is moving in a completely different direction, having just spun off its DVD rental service to focus on streaming, Dish is sticking with the multi-pronged approach as Blockbuster’s best bet. “We’ve created a package that combines the best assets of the movie entertainment and video gaming industries with the convenience and integration provided by a multichannel video provider,” said Blockbuster president Michael Kelly in a statement. “Blockbuster Movie Pass is the ultimate programming package for every movie buff. The combination of DVDs by mail and unlimited in-store exchanges provides more than 100 million people living near Blockbuster stores, which are open 7 days a week, immediate satisfaction and unmatched choice.”

  1. Introducing Blockbuster Movie Pass, only from DISH Network. No more multiple bills because if you sign up on October 1st, it’s free with the Platinum HD channel package which includes over 20 movie channels too! If you want your movies anywhere you go just ask for the Sling adapter that makes all of this possible on your mobile internet enabled device. Over 100,000 movie titles, TV shows and Blu-ray doesn’t cost extra like Netflix and Redbox! I have your movies mailed to your home, stop at one of Blockbuster’s convenient locations or stream from your home 722 receiver or computer. I love the convenience of paying on my DISHscriber employee account.
