Redbox Instant Opens Invites

Redbox Instant by Verizon on Wednesday began letting people register for an access code to use the streaming service. For $8 a month, Redbox Instant will offer unlimited streaming of movies plus four DVD credits. A promotion on the service's website says the first month will be free. Users can upgrade to Blu-ray for $1 more.


Users will be able to stream movies on computers, tablets, smartphones and TVs. The Redbox Instant by Verizon app is now available for Android and iOS. The multi-platform new subscription service is available to any U.S. resident (you don't have to have FiOS TV service or Verizon-operated broadband). And unlike Netflix, which mails disks to users, Redbox makes subscribers pick up their DVDs or Blu-rays at Redbox kiosks.

Verizon announced the Redbox streaming initiative in February when it decided to partner with Coinstar, Redbox's parent company, on the venture.
