NCR: KIOSKS NOT PART OF BLOCKBUSTER BANKRUPTCY

The kiosks may be blue and be plastered with the familiar Blockbuster logo, but NCR, which makes and installs the kiosks, assured its customers that it owns all of them and that Blockbuster’s decision to seek bankruptcy protection has no effect on their operations. In an email to customers made public on Monday by Home Media magazine, Justin Hotard, head of NCR Entertainment, said, “The Blockbuster Express business is 100% owned and operated by NCR Corp., a rock-solid public company that has pioneered breakthrough consumer experiences for more than 125 years.” NCR said that it still plans to have 7,000 Blockbuster Express units operating by the end of the year, with 3,000 more to be added next year.
