Netflix swallows Walmart DVD rental business
WalMart gets the heck out of the rent-DVD-by-Mail business but giving Netflix what they had of their DVD rental business
in exchange for Netflix recommeding WalMmart as a place for their customers to buy DVDs. WalMart DVD rental customers have until June 17th to decide if they want to go with Netflix or just have thier service discontinued. While this is great for Netflix since it's one less competitor to worry about, Walmart wasn't much of a threat in the first place. They had less than 100,000 customers which isn't all that much.
