Redbox Instant video to launch in coming weeks

The Verizon-powered Redbox Instant video streaming service is expected to launch in the coming weeks, according to GigaOM. The would-be Netflix-killer could get started as soon as December 17, with an Android app ready to roll.

Priced as low as $6 per month, Redbox Instant will give users unlimited streaming of content.  For another two bucks ($8/month), customers will get credit for four real-world DVD rentals.  Don’t want to commit to a monthly plan? Perhaps you might appreciate the 99¢ Video on Demand.

Aside from the Android app, Redbox Instant is reported to come to iOS, XBOX 360, the internet, and some Samsung TV’s and Blu-ray players.

    99 cent online rentals of new titles would be great, I think the cheapest right now is 2.99 or 3.99 for HD, unless it’s an old movie of course.

    Their biggest hurdle will be how much content they have out of the gate. I will wait and see when the service has been released if it is worth it.
