Blockbuster Tries Its Hand At Digital Magazine Publishing

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

The movie-rental brick & mortar store of yesteryear is making another attempt, perhaps, at convincing you to use its services, this time with a digital magazine, delivered hot and fresh to your iPad every month. While I’m skeptical that a free digital version of a movie-themed magazine will convince me to ever go Blockbuster again, this seems like a worthy look-see, at least.

Delivered free every month to the iDevice in your hands, BLOCKBUSTER MAGAZINE clues you in regarding the biggest and brightest new films, shows and games with side orders of gossip, laughs and schmooze.

For news, reviews, interviews and previews of everything you want to watch and play, accompanied by stacks of interactive fun, exclusive releases and champion offers, download now at absolutely no cost to your good self – ever – and let the games begin!

I’m amazed that no one’s used the name Fanhattan before as it’s an excellent name for a celebrity/movie orientated website or app. This app does exactly what would be expected of it. It enables users to find movies and TV shows from old to new across various video streaming and rental services.

Supporting many different services such as Vudu, iTunes, Hulu Plus, Netflix, Blockbuster, Amazon Video on Demand and the ABC Player, this should be a definitive app for all US based entertainment fans. If the show or movie isn’t currently available to stream, Fanhattan will even state where it can be bought for shipping at a later date.

Search options means that not only is it easy to track down something particular but it’s easy to browse for new suggestions too. Content is grouped into genres like Newest, Top Rated, Critic’s Picks as well as Award Winners such as Emmys or Oscars. That’s not forgetting regular genres like action or fantasy.

Combining everything in such a way is a neat idea that no doubt iPad owners will be keen to try out.

It’s out now and it’s free to download. Don’t forget that the services it links to may incur further charges such as Netflix and acquiring items on iTunes. Fortunately, Fanhattan lists pricing in a detailed manner.
