I'm not sure they did negotiate anything spectacular, or that Blockbuster had the capital to do what Netflix did. It seems like a lot of relatively new companies with a web- or tech-based business model are securing substantial amounts of funding from venture capitalists with an awful lot of patience; they lose money for years before they finally kill the competition and take over the market. I'll admit I'm not especially well-informed on the subject and would welcome the perspectives of those who are.
