Competition in the Movie Rental Industry: Netflix and Redbox

...SUBJ: A Look at the Competition Within the Movie Rental Industry EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Analysis: The competitive forces in the movie rental industry are quite strong, as I will explain through the five forces model. There are a vast amount of substitutes for watching a movie. You can go to a play, sporting event, concert, out the lake/beach, go for a run, watch regular television, go shopping; I could go on and on. Also, torrenting or pirating movies is growing increasingly popular. Buyers have a strong presence in this industry mainly because they are picky about how much they will pay to rent or stream a movie. With the amount of substitutes and their pickiness, they make this industry more competitive than what it may seem. Suppliers can make this industry very difficult because there is so much red tape in the movie industry. There are copyrights and restrictions on everything. This gives the supplier a lot of leverage and for the most part, they know that they can demand a price of just about anything. I see the potential and threat of new entrants being moderate to strong. First off; many customers have their loyalties whether it be to Netflix, Redbox or a local hometown movie rental. Secondly; pricing, availability and quality are all key factors. Lastly you have to have a large sum of money upfront in order to get the ball rolling. As I mentioned prior, gaining rights from movie companies is not cheap. The rivalry among the competitors is rather intense as......

The Rental Heart

...The Rental Heart is a short story written by Kirsty Logan. In this science fiction story we follow the main characters use of rental hearts. You can rent hearts as many times as you want to, and you can put them in your chest, so whenever you get your heart broken, you can just go to the rental store and rent a new one, and that’s what this story is about. The Rental Heart isn’t written chronologic, so it leaps in time. In this story the narrator also uses flashbacks: “Jacob was as solid and golden as tilled field, and our love was going to last forever, which in our age meant six months. Every time Jacob touched me, I felt my heart thud wetly against my lungs”. In the beginning we hear about the main character telling us, that is was the day after he met Grace he went to the rental store, where he hasn’t been for over ten years. When we hear what he thinks of Grace and the rental hearts, we get a feeling of a problem. We don’t know how many years the story courses, but we’ll assume that it’s from the main character is a teenager, to he is an adult person, because he tells us that his first love was meant to last forever and at their age it meant six months. We can tell that the story takes place in future, because you can rent hearts. The main character can be both a man and a woman, because the person is attracted both sexes, and therefor is bisexual. The story is written in first person narrator, and we hear the story from the main characters point of view....

Rental Business

...One hotly contested and highly competitive industry is the movie rental business.  You can rent videos from local video rental stores, you can order pay-per-view from the comfort of your own home, and you can rent videos from the Web at such sites as Netflix.  Using Porter's Five Forces Model, evaluate the relative attractiveness of entering the movie rental business.  Is buyer power low or high? Buyer power in movie rental business can be considered very high. As mentioned in the question, customers have wide range of choices to rent movies, from local stores to pay-per-view, to Red Box at most of national grocery chains, to online streaming and renting such as Netflix, Hulu, etc… With the technology for Internet TV in many homes today, customers can sit back on their couch and enjoy the convenience of watching any movies on demand at their fingertips, provided by Netflix, Hulu, Amazon or iTunes. Is supplier power low or high? Supplier power is low in movie rental business. Brick-and-mortal movie renting stores such as Blockbuster, Hastings, or local stores are losing their grounds in this battle for customers because they may not have the tremendous amount of copyrights to movies or the capacity of their stores to keep those DVDs. Online, there are more and more competitors joining the business, such as Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, and Apple iTunes. Each of these online competitors has obtained rights to a huge selection of movies, and the advantage......

Porter's Five Forces Model Applied to the Movie Rental Industry

...to the Movie Rental Industry Alex Boogren CIS-450 Holland Reviewed by: Kelsey Stone 2/18/2013 Porter’s Five Forces Model Applied to the Movie Rental Industry The movie rental industry has undergone a massive overhaul throughout the past decade in the way that they do business. Consumers now have the freedom to choose multiple different ways to rent their movies, whether it is from an online streaming service such as Amazon Prime, a movie rental kiosk like Redbox, or an old fashioned brick and mortar store. Because of this, I believe that the movie rental industry would be interesting to evaluate using the Porter’s Five Forces Model. Buyer power in the movie rental industry is extremely high right now. This means that consumers have many choices when deciding on where to rent movies from. Buyer power in this industry was relatively low until technology allowed for online streaming and automated kiosks to rent movies from. Since buyer power is high, competition is fierce in this industry at the moment. High buyer power lowers the attractiveness of entering the movie rental industry. The next force that will be evaluated is supplier power. Supplier power in the movie rental industry is considered high. High supplier power means that there are only a few places for a movie rental business to acquire their movies from. It is high in this industry because movies used for rentals usually must be bought directly from the company that produced the movie. This......

Market Failures in Movie Rentals

...Market Failures in Movies Rentals Katelyn Cuffle Microeconomics April 12, 2014 In today’s economy the technological advancements and market shifts have taken a toll on big businesses all over. Blockbuster, one of the well known movie stores suffered because it couldn’t keep up with the fast moving market shift in using new technology to rent movies on demand and now they are closed. The purpose of this report is to inform readers about market failures that happen when new technological advancements take over. Next this report discusses how adjusting to market shifts affect businesses. Finally this report discusses a solution that could help solve the problem for stores that can’t generate enough customers to come in because of technology. In the past couple years we have seen the “industry entertainment and media giants lose revenue as young upstart companies (or larger ones with visionary leaders) leverage the capabilities of the Web to outperform them. And now we're watching them go bankrupt as they fail to reinvent their business models to counterbalance the distribution of information online (Welchman, 2010).” Blockbuster is a well known business who because of the new technology advancements like ordering movies from your television and having Netflix went bankrupt. In today’s economy technology is...

The Future of Video Rental

...In the video rental industry, the company Blockbuster took an early foot hold as the industry leader. In 1997, Marc Randolph and Reed Hastings discovered the growing market space within the DVD market and formed the company Netflix in Scotts Valley, California with $2.5 million in startup cash. The company was formed with the idea that customers could utilize the company’s web site to rent DVDs and have them delivered to their home. The inspiration for the company came from Reed Hastings after he acquired $40 of overdue fees on an Apollo 13 movie rental from Blockbuster (A brief history of Netflix - CNN.com, n.d.). The business model for Netflix was created upon the methodology that customers will receive the movies of their choice in the mail while never incurring late fees. (Abraham, 2012 p. 1.8). Netflix added customer value and convenience by using processes already in place such as the US Postal Systems to capitalize on the delivery of their product. In this paper, I will outline a SWOT analysis of Netflix as well as prepare a strategic plan to grow the business over the next three years. Using SWOT analysis and strategic planning an organization performs organizational forecasting similar to advice given to a US hockey player once made concerning hockey, “skate where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.” (Schwartz, n.d.) Strategic planning is a systematic way of planning for the organizational future but upon the data based decisions from the SWOT......

Dvd Rental Industry

...Movie Rental Industry Introduction People born in the early 80’s have the advantage of experiencing the digital age from birth. Today people can go online to Netflix, Blockbuster, or VUDU and rent a movie to stream immediately to their flatscreen HDTV or computer monitor. This is a far contrast from mom and pop VHS video rental stores that emerged in the late seventies and early eighties. The immediate download of videos without having to drive to a brick and mortar building to return the video without incurring late fees is a thing of the past. In 1977 George Atkinson opened the first video rental store in Los Angeles offering videos for rent at $10 a day with a $50 or $100 membership to raise capital[1]. Since that first home theater store George opened, there have been a plethora of mom and pop video rental stores that sprouted up. As video renting became more popular due to the availability of the VHS recorder and the DVD player, larger movie rental chains entered the market with better buying power and lower prices. These larger chains were able to offer rental movies at lower prices with a larger selection[2]. The technology revolution has changed the landscape of video renting. Using Porter’s Five Forces model, entrance into the video rental business will be examined. Technologies used to stream movies, download full length movies, renting movies from store front, and renting from kiosks are the available avenues for the budding entrepreneur. With......
