Blockbuster is hoping to have a set-top movie player available before Christmas that will deliver content via their Movielink download service. This may be all that is left for one of America's favorite, at least according to revenue, ways to get their movies. Seems like a lot of work in a tumultuous holiday market that looks to be smaller than many before it.

Things like Netflix, online streaming, and movies not being as good have been hurting their bottom line for a while now. Blockbuster posted a loss for the second year, down $33.6 million so far in '08 and $34.4 million for 2007.

Times are tough for movie rental chains, but we're hoping BBuster can pull off the set-top box to keep Netflix honest in their similar endeavors.
