DVD Vending Machine Kiosk Versus The Video Store

The video store has enjoyed many years of solid growth, while the DVD vending machine has been getting established. People enjoy walking into a store and shopping the many aisles of DVD’s. They have been able to shop the different categories of movies by walking from one aisle to the next. The stores have a handy drop box so you can drop your DVD off anytime of the day or night.

Some of the problems the video stores have encountered are staffing and the overhead of operating a brick and mortar store.

Blockbuster Video has fallen on tough times in recent years. They have been asking the movie industry for special concessions to help keep them in business.

Online Download Of Movies

There are many in the industry that believes downloading of movies from the Internet is the next rage in line for the movie industry. The thing that seems to be derailing this at the present time is the time it takes to download, the buffering that can be so annoying and then the nightmare of moving it from the computer to the TV.

Another problem that has not been addressed in full is bandwidth. If downloading of movies is to become the next rage we have a problem with all the downloading of movies jamming up the Internet. Can you imagine what it would be like trying to download a movie at 5:00pm on a Friday evening?

DVD Vending Machine Kiosk And The Future

The bulk of the sales in this industry come from new releases with the classic as an additional sale. If an operator keeps the majority of their kiosk filled with newer releases they will be able to grab the bulk of the sales in this business.

The DVD kiosk is like the automated bank teller was twenty years ago. It is about to take over the industry. It is more convenient because it can be located in a store that the consumer is all ready going into on a regular basis.


Europe has embraced the DVD kiosk and the kiosk has all but eliminated the video stores in most of Europe. Many predict that the future of the DVD in America is in the kiosk because of the convenience it makes available to the consumer.

The kiosk in many cases now can provide a trailer for the consumer to view before purchasing. The kiosk is popping up in many different types of stores today. The kiosk is the stores partner in business. The fact that once a DVD is rented it will need to be returned and that brings the customer back into the store to make another purchase.

There are many manufacturers of the DVD kiosk and it would be advisable to look at the many different makes before purchasing. You may want to use the google search image that is located just below this article to research what is available in the market place today.

Your Web Master Dennis

I've had many people ask to speak with me. For those of you that have read my web site but still would like to ask me a few questions I'm now making that possible.

If you have a few questions about the vending or snack box business I'm now doing consulting on a limited basis. I do enjoy talking with people in the business or those thinking of getting into the business but time is the limiting factor.

I'm making myself available for consultation segments in 15 minute intervals. You will be able to purchase time in 15 or 30 minute intervals. Click for more information.
