The Blockbuster By Mail service will end in mid-December and the last 300 Blockbuster stores in the U.S. will close by early January.
Blockbuster's current owner, DISH Network Corp., said there will be about 50 U.S. stores operated by franchises not affected by the announcement. But DISH said it is also closing all its U.S. distribution centers.

Dish plans to lay off as many as 2,800 employees.

Dish had initially planned to keep 1,500 stores open and retain 15,000 employees, or about 90 percent of the outlets at the time after its acquisition. It has been gradually shutting stores and laying off employees.

DISH will keep the licensing rights to the Blockbuster brand and its video library. DISH said it will focus on the Blockbuster streaming and on-demand services currently offered to customers.
