Redbox Fees Go Bye Bye

Redbox Instant Verizon Movie Streaming

Redbox just made being hungover and lazy a little bit easier. Redbox and Verizon have teamed up to offer Redbox Instant a new video streaming service.  The best part is you won’t have to wait very long to get it. Redbox Instant launches this summer.  Excited yet? Imagine this…

  • No more waiting in line outside of 7-11 or Ralph’s getting stared down by the homeless
  • Fewer Redbox movie purchases because you can’t get them back in 7 days
  • It will cost less to rent movies  (we always rent at least two and  never watch more than one a day)
  • Who cares that you didn’t know you can return those movies to any Redbox ?  (I didn’t know for a long time 🙁 ) 
  •  With Verizon technology behind the service we can expect it to work EVERYWHERE 

You’ll have to own a Roku 3 to get it in the beginning.  If you don’t own one of these already you should. Roku is a small streaming device with a remote.  It has apps like HBO GO, Hulu Plus, Netflix, The Time Warner TV app,  Pandora, Facebook and a ton of other stuff … all in one place. Some people swear by it enough to get rid of their cable!  I wouldn’t go that far.

No more desperate searches for your Mac thunderbolt or HDMI cables. No more grumbling about iPad streaming to your TV either. Roku 3  retails for a mere $99 bucks and works via wireless or ethernet cable.  If you’re too cheap to get a Roku 3 , I bet Redbox Instant will be available via Apple iTunes, and the Android Play Store by Fall.
