If you have been waiting for Redbox’s streaming movie service, it is almost a done deal. In February the DVD vending company announced a partnership with Verizon that would finally allow it to compete with Netflix and stream movies. According to Fast Company, Redbox Instant will enter an internal alpha today.
Once they iron out the bugs and fine tune everything, it will be streaming for everyone. Both physical discs and streaming media will be available as a single package, but there is no word pricing yet or the structure of those subscription plans.
Hopefully more details will come soon. This is good news for those who prefer redbox over Netflix. Well, it will be if the price is right anyway.
