Redbox Instant By Verizon App Lands On PlayStation 3 Today
Can't find the movie you're looking for on the PlayStation Network? Give Redbox a try.
As announced over at the PlayStation Blog, Verizon's Redbox Instant App is now available on the PS3. This gives you access to thousands of streaming movies, and you'll even be able to find and reserve new releases on DVD and Blu-Ray at more than 43,000 Redbox kiosks, right from your home console.
The service will only cost you $8/month, and you'll receive four DVD rental nights at the Redbox kiosk every month. For an extra dollar, you can rent Blu-Ray movies, and you have the option of renting or purchasing new digital releases on-demand, without the necessity of a subscription. Redbox Instant will also feature The Playlist (exclusive to PlayStation users), which is a "specially-curated collection of movies from our subscription movie library, just for you." This will be "updated frequently" and will have categories like "Stuff Blowing Up" and "Movies With Balls." It's nice to get organized.
If you're on the fence, head over to this website and grab yourself a one-month trial period. You'll be able to find Redbox Instant in the "What's New," "My Channels," and "TV/Video Services" sections on the PS3 XMB, as well as in the Apps section of the Store.
