Sources Say Redbox Instant Is About To Shut Down





UPDATE: It is official now that RedBox Instant will shut down. Read the full story here.

Someone claiming to have inside sources reported today on Reddit that Redbox Instant is about to shut down for good on October 1st. This has not been confirmed but their social media has recently gone dark. Redbox Instant’s Twitter account has not been updated since July 20th and their Facebook page has not been updated since August 13th. Both use to be very active accounts that aggressively pushed the service.

The sudden end to social media is similar to what happened with HitBliss that shut down earlier this year.

Redbox Instant™ is a joint venture between two market leaders, Redbox, a subsidiary of Coinstar, Inc., and Verizon Communications Inc. Redbox Instant costs $6 a month for their streaming only package. You can also get a $8 package that included 4 DVD a month from a RedBox Kisak or $9 a month for a plan with 4 Blu-Ray discs.

We have reached out to Redbox Instant but at this time have not received a reply for our request for comment. We will update this story as we know more.
