EMV PCI ATM Industry essential guide

Although Redbox and Verizon have been silent on details surrounding the joint-venture video streaming service Redbox Instant by Verizon, gigaom.com uncovered details that reveal the service may become available in just a couple of weeks.

Here are the details listed in the article:

  • Subscriptions start at $6 a month, which gives users unlimited access to the service's subscription video catalog. That catalog is expected to be much smaller than Netflix's.
  • An $8 a month membership adds four Redbox credits to the streaming package that can be redeemed for Redbox DVD rentals. Users will be able to reserve their DVDs from the Instant website and mobile apps. Credits won’t roll-over but expire at the end of each month.
  • Redbox Instant also offers VOD rentals and sales of newer titles, which can be downloaded to some devices for offline access. Rentals and sales start at 99 cents, and offer access to titles like The Lorax, which will presumably cost a bit more than that.
  • Redbox Instant will initially be available on the web, Android and iOS devices, the Xbox 360 and select Samsung TVs and Blu-ray players. Customers will be able to register up to five devices to access the service.
  • Just like Netflix, Redbox Instant is using Silverlight for streaming on the web.
  • The help section also includes a hint regarding the launch date of the service: Beta testers are being told that they won't be able to access the DVDs included in their subscriptions at some kiosks until Dec. 17.
