The bricks-and-mortar video rental chain has repeatedly failed to move its business online or into a similar, lower-overhead type business.

Now, Blockbuster will likely be delisted by the New York Stock Exchange as its share price has fallen below the $1 minimum. The company was made aware of the issue back in November of 2009 and attempted to remedy the problem by combining its Class A and Class B shares.
