Redbox Instant aims to give Netflix a run for its money

Associated Press:

Later this month, Redbox will offer an unlimited streaming-video plan that includes movies from Warner Bros. and pay TV channel Epix, along with four nights of physical DVD rentals, for $8 a month, or $9 a month if customers want Blu-ray discs.

The service will stream video on iOS and Android devices, along with select products from Samsung and LG, according to Redbox’s press release.

The service is designed to augment Redbox’s existing offering; the company provides automated kiosks that allow customers to rent recent top movie releases on Blu-ray and DVD for as low as $1 a day. The service also provides video game rentals, though that isn’t included in the streaming-video service.
