DelhiDesk Blockbuster, the former video rental service that lost to Netflix, took a jab at the streaming giant over its new password-sharing policy. Blockbuster reminded people of the good old days when they rented videos and shared them freely, as long as they were returned on time. The company’s strict late fee policy became a source of frustration for many customers, including Reed Hastings, the founder of Netflix, who founded the company as an alternative video rental service that eliminated late fees. Blockbuster had an opportunity to acquire Netflix for $50 million, but it ultimately declined, a decision that proved costly as Netflix continued to grow and revolutionize the way people consumed entertainment, while Blockbuster struggled to adapt. Today, only one solitary Blockbuster store remains, serving as a nostalgic reminder of a bygone era. Netflix has been evolving and adapting to the ever-changing landscape of the streaming industry, recently taking measures to enforce its policy of account sharing, emphasizing that a Netflix account should only be utilized within a single household.
