DVD rental kiosks such as Redbox and BlockbusterExpress have shown faster growth in recent years than store rental or subscription services, and 47 percent of customers questioned by the NPD Group said Blockbuster kiosks were their first choice over the top six video rental brands. BlockbusterExpress self-service kiosks offer a wide selection of DVDs through kiosks located at supermarkets, gas stations and other retailers. Along with its associate, NCR, Blockbuster partners with business owners who provide convenient locations and potential new customers for BlockbusterExpress kiosks. In return, those businesses benefit from increased foot traffic and can gain new customers of their own.

Decide if you're willing to host a BlockbusterExpress kiosk at your business location. Note that the partnership is a turnkey venture, in which you will receive no additional compensation other than potentially increasing customer traffic.

Contact NCR by e-mailing or calling 800-225-5627 to discuss a partnership. Complete an application and submit proof of your business, such as a copy of your business license. The application will ask for information such as your store manager's name and contact information, address, and reason for your request. Follow directions on the form and submit it.

Stay in touch with the local NCR representative assigned to your application or kiosk machine if approved. Promote the fact you have a BlockbusterExpress kiosk by placing ads in your local newspaper, radio station or social media websites.

Tips & Warnings

  • NCR and BlockbusterExpress have a history of placing machines at chain stores with multiple locations. To increase your chances of being approved for a kiosk, note all locations you have available to host machines on your application, or inform the NCR representative handling your request.
