Flix on Stix: The next big thing in video rentals?

Are you ready for the next big thing in video rental? How about Flix on Stix? The name alone is catchy enough to make me want to write a check right now.

Flix on Stix is a lot like Redbox, except instead of getting the DVD or Blu-ray, you download it on a thumb drive, or stick. You can see on the video the rental rates of $1, $2, $3 and $4 for 3, 6, 9 and 12 days, respectively.

Of course, this leaves questions of finding a thumbdrive that can hold enough GB for your favorite flick or TV episode, and I can only assume the rented digital files “expires” somehow. Wasn’t Blockbuster wanting to experiment with SD cards?
