Big Y to Deploy Blockbuster Express DVD-Rental Chainwide

Big Y Foods plans to install NCR’s Blockbuster Express DVD-rental kiosks in all 57 of its stores throughout Massachusetts and Connecticut, and have them up and running by Sept. 3.

Blockbuster Express is a new self-service DVD rental kiosk that can hold more than 800 DVDs. “Big Y strives to give its customers the best experience possible,” said Phil Schneider, VP of sales at Springfield, Mass.-based Big Y. “Through Blockbuster Express, our customers can feel confident in their movie rental experience. NCR is a leader in self-service devices, and their Blockbuster Express kiosk is truly industry-leading.”

No membership is required to rent a DVD from Blockbuster Express -- a customer simply swipes his or her credit card and is charged $1 per night until the DVD is returned. DVDs can be returned at any Blockbuster Express kiosk -- not just the kiosk from which the DVD was rented.

Duluth, Ga.-based NCR expects to deploy more than 2,500 kiosks in 2009, for a total of 10,000 kiosks by mid-year 2010.
