Blockbuster adds 188 more kiosks NCR, the company behind the Blockbuster Express kiosks, has announced that they are installing 188 new machines in Tedeschi Food Shops convenience stores, expanding the movie rental company's range.
The stores are located in New England, and go as south as Connecticut.

Blockbuster already has 93 kiosks in Tedeschi stores, and expects to have 300 installed by the end of the year.

“Our decision to partner with NCR follows a careful evaluation of other similar services in this space,” added Joe Hamza, VP of sales and marketing for Tedeschi. “We believe NCR has the most compelling vision for delivering entertainment conveniently and efficiently to consumers.”

“Convenience stores are a prime location for DVD rental kiosks, as it is a great way for consumers to pick up their entertainment for the evening without having to make an additional stop on their way home,” notes Alex Camara, VP and general manager of NCR Entertainment.
