Updated: Comcast has confirmed the deal and that they'll be integrating the Blockbuster and Comcast offerings to provide one place to find out where you can watch a movie or TV show online or on DVD.
One of Comcast’s goals is to provide our customers with a full spectrum of movie and TV choices and this agreement is another way for our customers to access the movies and TV shows on yet another platform. This agreement complements the thousands of movies and TV choices we already offer via On Demand and online, through XfinityTV online, premium channels like HBO, Cinemax, Starz and Showtime, Comcast’s online store, and traditional pay-per-view.
Comcast and Blockbuster have teamed up to launch DVDsbyMail.com, a website that will offer a discount on Blockbuster by Mail subscriptions to Comcast customers.
Here's the plans and pricing offered to new Blockbuster customers today:
They closed my local Blockbuster store, so I'm on the $16.99 three discs by mail with no in-store exchanges, which is not offered by the new site.
Thanks to Dashiell for sending this in.
