Redbox Instant by Verizon pushed to spring 2013


Sorry to rain on your parade today, but it looks like the Redbox Instant by Verizon streaming service won’t be arriving in the next few weeks. Instead, the would-be Netflix-killer is now targeted for spring of next year, according to GigaOm. It’s not all bad news, however, as a public beta is slated for launch later this month. As to whether it is the same experience that rolls out in 2013 remains to be seen.

As a refresher, Redbox Instant by Verizon is a streaming service that will offer a number of options to consumers.  For $6.99/month, users will be able to stream on-demand  movies to Android, iOS, XBOX, PC, and other devices. At $8.99/month you can also score four DVD rentals good for those Redbox units that sit outside of your local drug store. Don’t feel like committing to a monthly plan? Maybe you’ll enjoy the $0.99 a la carte option.

Are you considering signing up for a monthly plan with Redbox Instant?
