A Post-Holiday Retail 'Equalizer'30 Dec, 2014 By: John Latchem
Coming off the holidays, the big retail chains were more focused on clearing inventory than pushing a relatively small slate of new releases spearheaded by Sony Pictures’ The Equalizer.
Best Buy offered $5.99 movies on DVD and Blu-ray and $9.99 TV seasons on DVD and Blu-ray.
Target offered $5 DVDs and a buy-3-get-1-free deal.
Walmart introduced the Vudu Spark, its own HDMI dongle that plugs into a TV’s HDMI port to allow viewers to use their HDTV to view Vudu content. The $24.96 device includes $20 in Vudu purchases.
