Blockbuster

In 1996, Blockbuster Video announced its rebranding as simply Blockbuster; the word "Entertainment" (and formerly "Video" until 1994) was dropped from the logo as a result in 1996, although older stores still used the previous logo.

Blockbuster was acquired by Dish Network in 2011. However, the use of the Blockbuster brand name still continues through the Blockbuster on Demand and Blockbuster @ Home services. Later, however, all Blockbuster stores in Canada were closed.

This logo was still used for Blockbuster Australia, one of the remaining countries which still had store franchises until the last Blockbuster in Australia closed in March 2019. As of January 2014, all of Blockbuster's company-owned locations were closed. As of April 2019, only one Blockbuster remains open in Bend, Oregon. Its website also remains online and got updated in 2022, most likely to tease Netflix’s Blockbuster series.

In 2020, Blockbuster teased its comeback by a Twitter account tweet. However, it wasn’t until 2022 when they started being active on social media again.
