Redbox Instant app hits Google Play ahead of official announcement



The official Redbox Instant by Verizon application for Android is now in the Google Play Store, signaling an announcement is fast approaching. Available for both smartphone and tablet, the app does not require a Verizon account or service plan. Details in the notes tell us the app will serve multiple purposes, including watching movies, reserving at Redbox kiosks, bookmark favorites, and more.

Expected to go live any day now, Redbox Instant is a service which provides on-demand movie streaming directly from smartphones and other devices. Pricing is reported to be $8 per month and will include unlimited streaming as well as  four DVD rentals from kiosks. Those who aren’t ready to commit to a monthly fee can also rent flicks for $.99 a piece, just as they would if they were to swing by the local drug store.

The Redbox Instant service is “gradually rolling out” right now, according to a statement on Twitter from today. If you’re interested in signing up for access and want in on the beta, head to and add your email to the list.
