Redbox is going digital, now they will be streaming all their movies just like Netflix does. This service is scheduled to go live in December. The streaming-only subscription will start at $6 per month with unlimited use of the video catalog. The virtual library will be smaller than the one from Netflix, but will have more recent titles. Redbox Instant by Verizon will also offer a plan for those who want DVD movies at just $8. It will give you additional Redbox credits that can be used at any kiosk. You will be able to reserve DVD’s from their website and mobile app. Also, Redbox Instant will provide Video On Demand rentals that will start at $0.99.
