Redbox crams Blu-ray flicks into 13,300 of its kiosks

Blu-ray comes to Redbox

One of the only places I can rent movies in my town is from the Redbox kiosks that are in just about every grocery store in town. I have long wished that there were Blu-ray films in the kiosks and that wish has finally come true.




Redbox announced this week that it has added Blu-rays to 13,300 of its rental kiosks around the country. The company also plans to have Blu-ray films in all 23,000 kiosks it operates by this fall.


The Blu-ray flicks will rent for $1.50 per night, $0.50 more per night than a normal DVD. The selection is limited now with the only titles available being "The Book of Eli," "Bounty Hunter," "Brooklyn's Finest" and "Green Zone" but the catalog will grow.
