TDC has taken over the rights to the Blockbuster name from 01 July, and repeated that it will retain the name purely for online services, after the remaining physical stores closed at the weekend. TDC said it is splitting its streaming activities into two. Blockbuster will focus on selling and renting out individual feature films and TV serials, while its YouBio and Plus services will continue to operate on a subscription model. TDC media director Ulf Lund said it sees iTunes as its largest competitor on the rental market.
