Since we are well in the middle of summer now, and there is nothing quite like grabbing some of your favorite popcorn and watching your favorite movies in the comfort of your living room, here is news that will definitely carve a smile on your face – Redbox Instant by Verizon is now available for streaming. Basically, as long as you are in the US and use a Roku 3, Roku 2, Roku HD (model 2500) or Roku LT (models 2400 & 2450) player or the Roku Streaming Stick, you will be able to enjoy this particular service.
The service itself offers access to more than 5,500 streaming movies as well as over 1,500 movies that are currently available at Redbox kiosks. Not only that, one can also locate and reserve movies as well as video games at over 43,000 Redbox kiosks which are strategically located around the nation. Check out movie trailers before you watch the actual movie, and if you’re a sucker for user reviews, go nuts reading them. A bookmark function would also be able to help you keep track of all the movies discovered, and there is also the option to start, stop and resume watching a movie for busy bees out there. Just sign up for a Redbox Instant by Verizon subscription package to be eligible for this service at $8 a month, and new customers will even gain a 1-month free trial. [Press Release]
