Blockbuster Video Stores Still Thriving in Alaska

More than half of the Blockbuster stores still in existence today are located in Alaska!  How many is half?  6.  Yep, in total there are only 10 Blockbusters around today. 

Why are they so popular in Alaska?  Apparently internet and WiFi are kind of expensive up there, so streaming services like Netflix and Hulu aren't as cost effective as heading to the video store and renting a movie.

VICE recently did a short documentary about the Blockbuster stores in Alaska.  You can check it out below.
