Id be interested in doing this over Netflix if it were Blurays or games and not DVDs. Anyone can get free dvd rental codes left and right from them . Id like to see it work for them though

That would not be bad, but it would depend on their lineup of movies.

I'd be interested in seeing what they bring to the table, but they are entering a rather saturated market. With Netflix and Hulu beating them to the punch (and both of them having some exclusivity contracts) I think will be a hindrance.

Don't see that happening. With Netflix you can easily get over 10 DVDs a month for $8. Online streaming will probably have a poor selection (at least when they start). They would have to lower prices to compete with Netflix.

Forgot to mention that they give out free DVD codes like candy. They'll also have to stop doing that.

I couldn't figure out where I saw it originally on the redbox site, but they say it'll be a $9 instead of $8 to make it blurays -- http://www.usatoday....etflix/1762989/

$8/month after beta ends. I only watch 1 or 2 movies a month and pay $1.25 at the physical Redbox. Probably not for me.

Amazon Prime gives you 2 day shipping and access to the Kindle Owner's Lending Library as well. I prefer Amazon Instant Video over Netflix.

Amazon would be better if their movies had subtitles.



As far as Redbox goes I can't see it really taking off. Especially since at first there won't be a way to view it on TV without plugging your computer into it.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Same here, rented looper. Had low expectations but was surprised by how much I enjoyed the movie.
