  1. Successful companies will do this and especially since there are more companies that our offering streaming and access to more and more movies everyday. The Blockbuster movie pass is the one I really like because it’s affordable and I have access to thousands of channels to my TV and PC for a $10/mo charge. DISH Network customers can take advantage of this in the Dish Platinum package. Working for DISH Network I can tell you Blockbuster movie pass also comes with a one disc at a time rental by mail which cover games, DVD’s and blu-rays.
