Blockbuster’s Movielink Service Reports Loss

Dallas, Blockbuster’s newly acquired video downloading service, Movielink, lost $10.18 million in the first half of 2007, according to the company’s 8-K filing.

Although Blockbuster reports its earnings for its third quarter Nov. 1, the company filed its 8-K report on Wednesday, to inform investors that its newest venture suffered a loss.

Dallas-based Blockbuster acquired Movielink in August for $6.6 million.
