Blockbuster video stores to stay open

Dish Network says it will keep hundreds of Blockbuster video stores open.

Dish Network won a bid earlier this month to take over the bankrupt Blockbuster video company.

Dish has now agreed to take on the leases of about 500 Blockbuster stores so Blockbuster can maintain a physical presence in the video rental market.
