Blockbuster video will close all of its 300 stores and cease its DVD-by-mail operations, its owner, DISH Network, announced Wednesday. The company cited the rise of digital video distribution as the reason for the closure, saying it plans to expand its online offerings.
Stores will close down by January 2014 and Blockbuster-by-Mail will end next month.
Earlier this year, Blockbuster announced another culling of 300 stores. About 3,000 people lost their jobs.
