Redbox defies all odds and lawsuits, launches on demand service

15 December 2017

This new service allows users to rent or purchase the rights to stream a wide selection of movies and TV shows for offline or online viewing.

"The newest-release movies are not available in subscription streaming services", said Ash Eldifrawi, Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer at Redbox. Pricing for new-release on demand rentals start as low as United States dollars 3.99 for 48-hour VoD rentals and USD 9.99 for EST transactions. The Apple TV app will be available soon, but you can now use Airplay to watch rented or purchased Redbox movies.

X Development LLC Collaborates With Government of Andhra
According to a state government's press release, X will initially supply the state with 2,000 FSOC links. Google X said that it was already working with AP State FiberNet creating the FSOC network.

With VOD rentals starting at $4.99 for 48 hours and digital purchases starting at $9.99, the service is likely meant for those who either simply can't get enough content, or prefer à la carte purchases over the monthly subscription fees services like Netflix and Hulu offer. In 2012 the company partnered with Verizon to offer Redbox Instant by Verizon.

Despite ongoing decline in the physical video rental business, Smith said the on-demand service is a complement to its core business, not a successor.

SC approves Centre's March 31 deadline for linking various schemes
The previous deadline for linking bank accounts, mutual fund folios and insurance policies with Aadhaar was December 31, 2017. Earlier, the Centre has expressed willingness to extend deadline for mandatory linking of Aadhaar for various services.

"It's really, really important to understand that there's segmentation in the market", said Smith.

The public launch of Redbox On Demand comes after the company has been kicking the tires on a digital service for more than a year and half. The hottest new movie releases including Dunkirk, The Lego Ninjago Movie and Flatliners now on EST and Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Home Again, Detroit and All Saints now on VOD, and more are now available.
