Summary Box: Blockbuster vs. Netflix in rematch

VIDEO REMATCH: Blockbuster is going after its old nemesis Netflix with a new service that bundles DVDs-by-mail and Internet video streaming for as little as $10 per month. That's what Netflix Inc. charged before it raised its prices by as much as 60 percent earlier this month.

NEW TWIST: This time around Blockbuster has the backing of satellite-TV provider Dish Network Corp., which bought Blockbuster out of bankruptcy court for $234 million five months ago. Blockbuster landed in bankruptcy court after getting beat up by Netflix.

THE CATCH: To get Blockbuster's deal you have to subscribe to Dish too.
