Blockbuster announced Wednesday it's closing all remaining retail locations by January 2014.
The announcement signals the end of an era in home entertainment. The company said there are approximately 300 brick and mortar stores left in the United States that will close.
"This is not an easy decision, yet consumer demand is clearly moving to digital distribution of video entertainment," said Joseph P. Clayton, DISH president and chief executive officer, current owners of Blockbuster.
The company will also end its Blockbuster By Mail service by mid-December.
According to the Blockbuster website, the company has nine stores currently open in North Texas. Two of those nine are in Dallas city limits.
Blockbuster was headquartered in Dallas until 2011, when DISH bought the company out of bankruptcy and moved business operations to Colorado.
