Redbox Instant, the streaming service from US telco Verizon, has launched its app for Roku set-top boxes.
Rebox Instant combines an online subscription service with DVD rentals through Redbox street kiosks.
Roku said that Redbox Instant would be available for anyone with a recent Roku box (2,3, HD LT or streaming stick). It offers access to 5,500 movies as part of its subscription, and reserve physical discs from 680 titles for pick-up at street kiosks.
As IP&TV News reported last week, Redbox Instant is also interested in supporting Google’s Chromecast streaming adapter.
The Redbox Instant/Roku service costs US$8 a month or US$9 for Blu-ray. Verizon is offering a one-month free trial for the service, as well as four DVD credits.
