Redbox Is Getting Ready to Relaunch Their Streaming Service




A few years ago Redbox and Verizon had a joint streaming service that allowed users to rent movies. Now it looks like Redbox is getting closer to launching its own streaming service this time without the help of Verizon.

Back in July 2016 we first reported that Redbox was testing something called Redbox Digital Beta that would be an online streaming service.

In a statement to Variety, a Redbox spokesperson said the following: “Redbox continually looks for ways to enhance our customer experience. For tens of millions of consumers, Redbox is their source for new release rentals without a subscription. As such, we regularly conduct tests of potential new offerings that may or may not be brought to market as part of our ongoing commitment to provide additional value.”

Over the following months little was heard from the project and many had assumed it had come to an end. Now it looks like its streaming service is back with a new name.

MKVX Stream found a link to the closed beta testing and have a few screen shots of the Android app.

MKVX Stream found the following:

  • The new Redbox service will be called Redbox On Demand (Currently with a beta tag at the end.)
  • The service will be available on Roku, Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS devices.
  • You can register up to five devices with the service but you can only stream a movie on two devices at once.

You can add the Redbox channel to your Roku here:

Now just installing the channel does not guarantee you access to the beta, but if you want to check it out there it is.
