Napster, Blockbuster Create Combined Rental Card
Los Angeles-based Naspter and home electronics giant Blockbuster announced this morning that the two companies have created a new Digital Duo card that offers both digital music and online DVD rentals. The card will be available at RadioShack stores, and provides unlimited access to Napster's song library, and unlimited Blockbuster online DVD rentals for a month. Napster, a division of Roxio, provides legal song downloading. Blockbuster's online DVD rental service allows movie fans to order DVDs online and have them delivered by mail. The announced service also includes in-store rental coupons for Blockbuster's retail stores. The two companies are hoping that the card will be a popular gift during the holiday season.
