Redbox Instant Details Announced - $9.00 for Streaming and Four Blu-ray Rentals

Posted Thu Dec 13, 2012 at 11:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

A beta test will be launching this month that includes 30 days of free service.

After seeing a few leaked details for Rebox Instant we came away underwhelmed. Getting a look at the whole package though, we can say that this is pretty exciting – especially for Blu-ray fans. The service runs $8.00 a month for unlimited streaming and four DVD rental credits. If you want to upgrade those to Blu-ray, it's just a buck more.

So for $9.00 a month you get four Blu-ray rental credits, each good for a one day rental – that's $1.50 each so the total comes to $6.00. That leaves $3.00 for unlimited streaming on iOS and Android devices, TVs and other gear from Samsung and LG as well as Google TV. Not a bad deal by any means, and a welcome alternative to Netflix.

We'll let you know more about beta information as soon as we have it.
