The service will run $6 a month with a $2 upcharge for four DVD rentals. Sadly, no details involving Blu-rays came up.
We've finally gotten a better look at some details of the much anticipated Redbox streaming service and things are pretty close to what you'd imagine. Redbox Instant doesn't have quite the selection of Netflix and the $6/mo price reflects that. Adding on DVDs will cost you $2/mo, and that gets you four DVDs. We're going to take a wild guess and say that you'll be able to get two Blu-rays instead of four DVDs, but that information has not yet been revealed.
What's disappointing about what we're seeing based solely on the support pages is that there don't seem to be any newer movies. 'Thor' and 'Iron Man 2' are both shown, but both of those movies are streaming on Netflix right now, so there's not much to be thrilled about there.
Take this all with a grain of salt of course. This is far from an official release and things could change before the service goes live.
