Blockbuster finally files for Chapter 11

Blockbuster has had a rough few years, but this one has been especially painful. First, its shares were delisted from the New York Stock Exchange. And now, as expected, it has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization as it struggles to compete with online video-rental service Netflix and the rental-kiosk phenomena. Calling it "pre-arranged recapitalization," Blockbuster announced today that it has filed Chapter 11 petitions in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court. The reorganization encompasses only the company's U.S.-based operations and stores that it wholly owns. International operations and franchises are not included in the filing, Blockbuster said. However, the reorganization does encompass quite a bit. According to the company, all of its stores, by-mail service, and streaming operation are included in the proceedings. Blockbuster is also planning to take a harder look at its operations. Although its 3,000 stores are still operating normally, Blockbuster said, it plans to "evaluate its U.S. portfolio." If and when it emerges from Chapter 11, Blockbuster expects to be in a better position to compete against Netflix and its other rivals.

Android App Coming for Home Automation

Blake Krikorian, creator of the Slingbox set-top, at the Sept. 22-26 CEDIA Expo 2010 in Atlanta will bow Google-based Android apps that allow users to control myriad home devices, including Blu-ray Disc players, televisions, media players and DVRs, from a growing array of enabled portable touchscreen devices. Home automation has quietly flourished due to the advent of the Apple iOS operating system that allows iPhone and iPad users to remotely manage a variety of third-party devices, including household lights, security systems, thermostat, oven, microwave, window shades and doorbells. Krikorian, who sold Sling Media to EchoStar in 2008, developed the apps, dubbed “R2,” for the Crestron home control platform. At CEDIA, Krikorian will showcase the apps on Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab, which sports a seven-inch screen, in addition to the five-inch screen Dell Streak. Unique to the Android app, which will be available on Google Marketplace this fall, is that users do not have to switch screens to manage separate devices. For example, if the user is watching a Blu-ray movie, has a home security system with video functionality, and the doorbell rings, a separate screen pops up identifying the visitor. TV volume can be controlled while reading an electronic book, among other functions.
