Alright, I bought "Men In Black II" today and this has been bugging for a long time and started up again today.

Does Blockbuster (Viacom) get any kick back's from the PPV's bought on D*? I really can't figure it out. They are listed as "Blockbuster Pay Per View Movies" so I would think they do. Some friend's have said that Blockbuster (Viacom) doesn't get anything. Yeah....so anyone know?

In my area, Blockbuster only gives now 6 months of free rentals in their promotion with DirecTV, instead of 1 year or 12 months.
